STI Evolution Foam is our innovative and environmentally responsible approach to advancing product with technology in order to produce lightweight, long-lasting footwear. Not only does STI Evolution Foam create a lighter skate shoe, it is also resistant to high-impact skating with its durable rebound foam cushioning. The production process of this advanced foam both eliminates waste and improves efficiency. Instead of die cut from a sheet, STI Evolution Foam midsoles are made from a unique molding process. We simply set a predetermined number of foam pellets into a mold and heat it until it expands to the right size.
Within our footwear line, the location and amount of STI Evolution Foam incorporated is tailored unique to each shoe. Each varying degree is created with a particular performance application in mind. The Highlight uses STI Evoluition Foam in full with it’s exposed outsole, creating an extremely lightweight shoe using zero rubber. Partial application is seen in the Jameson E-Lite and Marana E-Lite with both footbed and an exposed midsole made from STI Evolution Foam for maximum stability and support while still providing impact protection.
