The footwear’s are developed, designed and produced according to customer requirements, environmental conditions and the climate.
There are many different technologies used in making the sole of the footwear. We believe the best technology is the Dual Density Rubber Injection Technology. This technology due to its complexity cannot be used by all manufacturers but at Yakupoglu this technology is in place. It provides high durability for long lasting harsh wear conditions. It’s sponge-like mid layer which not only provides the wearer with the cushioning and comfort and flexibility but also make it lighter in weight. It provides the best combination of insulation against hot and cold conditions and heat resistance up to 300°C.
