Little or no previous knowledge of sole materials is required for this one day course. Delegates are introduced to the main sole materials in use today and learn how they are formed and best used to their various strengths. Heels and top-pieces (top-lifts) are included.

The most important test methods are described and demonstrated, and additional test methods are briefly described. Finally, functional sole design is considered, paying heed to both the hidden footside and external tread.

Lunch and morning/afternoon refreshment is provided. Full supporting notes will be provided.
Numbers will be limited so that delegates benefit fully from the practical sessions. Priority and a discount will be given to those also booking the associated ‘Overview of Sole Adhesion’ day.
