Committed to helping the footwear industry reduce shoe waste, we work with footwear manufacturers to engineer to produce responsibly, improve product lifespan, and enhance material circularity.
With our advanced TPU technology, footwear manufacturers can use one versatile material during production to help simplify the process, therefore using less energy. TPU scraps leftover during production can also be reused, resulting in less waste. Footwear composed of 100% TPU also enables the regrind to be repurposed at the end of its use.*

We offer an expansive thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) portfolio featuring extensive footwear application capabilities that can be used to form every component of a shoe. Our innovative TPU portfolio is engineered to meet high-performance footwear demands to achieve deeper customization, comfort, performance and durability.
After a series of material tests, FootJoy determined ESTANE® TRX TPU provided exceptional traction performance and design flexibility for innovative models of spikeless and premiere golf shoes.
