Crepe Sole Boot
Crepe Sole Boot | Boots
Following the release of our Craven series last month, a question that our customer services team has been asked frequently over the past couple of weeks on Facebook and Instagram has been; What is a Crepe Sole? To help guide you on your way, we posed the very same questions to our team at HQ to guide you through the terminology and the benefit's of Crepe. Down to basics. The term "Crepe Sole" refers to the less common, cushioned soft material that makes up a sole unit on footwear. A technique of sap extraction originating from indigenous South America, using machinery, the material is then later pressed, crushed and rolled before being sent out into sheets before being cut into sole shapes for use in our factory. Due to slight variations in different types of Crepe, the finishing results can vary from sole to sole. Some may be stiff upon purchase and need to be broken in, whilst some are ready to go from the get go.
Crepe Sole Boots
In the shoe and boot world, leather and hard rubber soles are commonplace, but a softer, less common variant appears from time to time—Crepe Rubber. This crinkly, cushioning material is famous for appearing on the sole of the iconic Clarks Desert Boot, and many brands still use it today for a softer sole. After being harvested in liquid form from the tree, the raw latex is then coagulated to form a semi-solid substance, and then crushed, pressed, and rolled into sheets using a series of machines.
