Silicone is the core material of QUANT-U. Backed by 2 years of research and corroborated with more than half a century of knowledge in the footwear industry, we are ready to launch 3D printed silicone midsoles – quantified by you.
But why silicone?
Silicone has exceptional elasticity and is transformed into an excellent cushioning medium through engineered meshing. Silicone is naturally antibacterial, stable between -50 and 250 degrees Celsius and is incredibly durable. These are some of the features that make it the optimal material for QUANT-U.
Why silicone midsoles?
Midsoles are the functional heart of the shoe; they play a key role in the performance and comfort of your footwear. The unique characteristics of silicone allow us to tune this functionality, without compromising on style. By using just a single technique, silicone brings customised comfort to life.
Our data-driven footwear customisation project QUANT-U will be available to the public for one week only, in April 2018. Exclusively at W-21 Amsterdam.
