Materials used to create the finest shoes

The most popular choice of materials used to make shoes are:

  • Leather – Sturdy and durable, leather is one of the most common materials used to make shoes. Its also a breathable material and an insulator of heat.
  • Textiles – Textiles are available in an array of varieties for example cotton, polyester, wool and nylon.
  • Synthetics – Cost effective and man-made. Synthetic material is made up of 2 layers; an external surface adhered to a backing layer composed of polyester fibres. Unfortunately, this low-quality material tends to wear faster and will need replacing more often.
