Consider the following sandal:
Construction of a similar sandle can be seen in this video. The mid-sole is visible at time 1:03, after which the video shows wrapping the sole in leather and then gluing on the bottom sole (separate wear pads for the sole and heel). It has the following properties:
- Wrapped by leather, with an inside that is flexible and has a rubbery feel to it as it absorbs shocks the normal way you would expect a shoe would do. This inside is what I refer to as the midsole. My question is to find out the material that is often used here.
- There is no top-sole as the foot sits on leather.
- There is a bottom sole, which is a thin light-brown layer. This is the other sole that I would like to know its material.
- What is the mid-sole material used here?
- Is the mid-sole chopped from a bigger block? Or is it molded in this shape?
- What is the bottom-sole material?
