Research Triangle Park, N.C. – Sof Sole®, a leading footbed, hosiery and shoe accessory brand, is proud to announce a partnership with SKYDEX Technologies, Inc. – the leading innovator of technologies that mitigate shock, vibration and energy forces for military and commercial applications – to incorporate SKYDEX's patented shock absorbing technology in Sof Sole's line of performance insoles.

SKYDEX will partner with Sof Sole by licensing its patented geometric twin-hemisphere technology for use in the Sof Airr® line of performance insoles. The SKYDEX thermoplastic polyurethane solution has proven far more effective and far more resilient than foam products in a wide array of applications that require impact mitigation. The technology is primarily used in products that provide head to toe protection of troops and military equipment, but is also used in athletic footwear and other commercial applications.

“With Sof Sole's heritage of incorporating the best technology in our performance insoles, SKYDEX' innovative solutions for compact and lightweight shock absorption will help Sof Sole advance to the next level.” said Seth Richards, CEO of Sof Sole parent company Implus.

“The origins of SKYDEX is in the athletic shoe industry and our technology has helped shoemakers win a number of awards for their products,” said SKYDEX President and CEO Mike Buchen. “We believe the partnership with Sof Sole is a natural application of our technology and look forward to working with them.”
