The Material Edge

More than 100 million pairs of high-end athletic shoes around the world share a performance enhancer: Toray CFRT® (continuous fiber reinforced thermoplastic) composite materials. Strategically utilized to enhance footwear performance for more than 25 years, Toray CFRT® composites deliver reduced weight while increasing biomechanical stability. The result? An athletic shoe that complements an athlete's strength and enhances performance.

Tunable to specific flexibility needs, Toray CFRT® composite materials are ideal for footwear engineering, allowing designers to tailor the range of foot motion through fiber replacement, resin selection, and component design. Similar to a continuous bridge, Toray CFRT® materials provide engineered strength throughout your design.
