Heel Counter

Heel counters made from Pebax® polymers are typically 20% lighter than those made from other materials like TPU, with no compromise of stability!

Lightweight Pebax® polymers also provide runners with high impact resistance and excellent UV resistance, which are critical to heel counter designs.


Some of the world's absolute leading shoes contain Pebax® Foam midsoles. When the 2-hour marathon is broken, we are sure that Pebax® Foam will play a role!

Pebax® Foam midsoles bring extreme lightweight energy return to runners. Foaming Pebax® polymers reduces the weight even further while maintaining a high degree of comfort and energy return, which puts an extra spring in your step!

Stabilizers, Shanks, Plates

Pebax® elastomers are used in stabilizers and shanks due to their world-leading energy return efficiency. Kind of like putting a diving board in your shoe!

Whether it's hot and dry or cold and damp, you can rely on Pebax® elastomers to deliver consistent stability and support to keep you going for the extra miles. For example, some materials become stiff and brittle in very cold conditions, but Pebax® elastomers maintain their flexibility and energy return. They also provide added stability, which can help avoid injuries like ankle sprains.
