The Science Behind Sorbothane®

Sorbothane® is a unique material that naturally cradles the foot in comfort and protects the entire body by absorbing up to 94.7% of impact shock. Sorbothane flows like a liquid under load, never bottoms out and recovers fully to ensure comfort step after step. Durable and long-lasting, Sorbothane Performance Insoles maintain their shock absorbing benefits longer than any other insole material on the market.

Absorbs up to 94.7% of Impact Shock



With every step we take destructive shock waves are transmitted back up through the body.


These harmful shock waves can cause discomfort, pain and even impact related injury.

Without Sorbothane harmful shock waves are generated by foot strike shock.

Destructive Impact Shock



Sorbothane like a liquid, distorts easily to move harmful shock waves laterally away from the point of impact.


Sorbothane cushions the impact and cradles the foot in comfort.

Sorbothane works to absorb heel strike shock, delivering comfort and helping to protect the body.

Unique Sorbothane Tames Harmful Shock

What is Sorbothane?

Sorbothane is a one of a kind material. It distorts easily and recovers completely. It can cope with energy in more than one direction. Sorbothane has the characteristics of both viscous (liquid) and elastic (solid) materials. Which is ideal for impact-absorbing insoles. Sorbothane distorts under load and returns to its original shape after a slight delay. The energy from a Sorbothane deflection is converted into a very small amount of heat, which then dissipates naturally. A proprietary material Sorbothane has been used by NASA for its remarkable ability to isolate vibration and control shock. Sorbothane Performance Insoles cradle the foot in comfort and help protect against impact related pain and discomfort. Resilient, Sorbothane will not bottom out and lose effectiveness.
