About Copper

Why copper insoles??

“Copper infused insoles, the more you feet sweat the harder they work”

Copper is an essential element vital for the normal functions of many tissues and has been shown to be indispensible for the generation of capillaries and skin. When copper comes into contact with your skin, copper salts / ions transfer from the copper fabric and some of these maybe absorbed by the skin. As reported by a leading professor of arthritis research UK.

What are the Causes of foot odour?

The problem isn’t your feet – it’s what your feet are wearing. Smelly feet are primarily caused by a lack of ventilation to your feet. Each foot has more than 250,000 sweat glands, producing more than a pint of sweat in one day. People get smelly feet when the perspiration has nowhere to evaporate – but it is not the sweat that causes the foot odour it is bacteria. Another common condition, athlete’s foot, which is a skin infection caused by a fungus, can also cause smelly, itchy feet.

The benefits of copper could begin to work on first contact with the body, and the regenerative, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties remain step after step.

Many studies with copper infused fabrics have shown some of the following benefits:

  • Made from 2.5mm EVA sole with 35% copper infused fabric top layer
  • Odour resistant – Feel fresh for longer
  • Super flexible and super light
  • Ideal for trainer and everyday shoes
  • May help alleviate itchy feet
  • Anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti viral (for example athletes foot)
  • Copper bangles as with copper fabrics are widely shown to help alleviate arthritis and inflammation
  • Suitable for diabetics – diabetic foot management

The copper fabric maintains its health giving benefits after washing for the usable life of the garment.
