Small shock absorbers, molded into the Trileon outsole, are designed to absorb impact and increase traction. On slippery surfaces, these nubs function as little squeegees, offering slip-resistant protection. At the core of the SoftScience shoes’ construction and personality is a proprietary material called Trileon™- a closed cell copolymer developed by Scott Seamans exclusively for SoftScience. The unique properties of Trileon – cushioned, stable and lightweight – allow us to produce a shoe weighing just six to ten ounces that is comfortable with high-impact resistance and support. Trileon is used in the shoes’ durable outsole and in the removable, washable insole. The outsole and insole combine to produce the unique comfort experience, which is the “WOW” factor in all SoftScience shoes. The shoes’ effective, yet simple, design and construction minimize the need for hardening adhesives and multiple layers of material. Wearers experience a roomy and relaxed fit, a stable platform, superb shock absorption, and an outsole that is slip-resistant and non-marking.
