Middle soling

Recommended Posts

Who supplies middle soling please?


2 - 3 mm sheeting plain rubber / micro / eva.

Davies used to supply excellent sheeting, no more.

Plain 3mm Deelite was good.

Used to get by with 3 mm eva.


Now my suppliers can't supply a thing.


I do a reasonable amount of units, which properly require a stitched middle prior to the unit.


I can scour down 4 mm, but its not the same, plus it is time and work. How do others cope?

Many of the midsole eva ,Deelite and rubber sheets were Surplus products from other jobs ,Deelite sheets were made pattern both sides in @ 20 mm thickness , these were then split into 2 x 10mm , 1x 12mm 1x 8 mm etc , thin plain Deeite was essentially a scrap sheet produced when doing this in other combinations that did not use the full thickness,Davis used to hold much of there EVA in similar thickness's , splitting down to customers requirements, and throwing up similar sheets .

3 mm resin may be your only option , not the cheapest way of doing the job , but probably all that is availiable.

Bontex and all similar derivaties ( normally made by Texon Group) are insole Boards, made from a combination of pressed Wood/Paper Pulp fibres and other materials, intail enquiry was aimed at midsoles for Mens footwear , often used prior to fitting a bottom sole unit.
