How are you using Tyvek? We are using Tyvek as the entire upper (above the outsole) of Lifestyle Athletic Shoes. This gives a fresh exciting new look and eco-friendly product. We call this part of our line "The Unpressed Collection" due to the wrinkled effect we added to the Tyvek.
What you did do with Tyvek? We used eco-friendly dyes and added a wrinkled effect. We added a backer to the parts of the shoe where we needed additional support with eco-friendly adhesives. We dye cut pieces as ordinary shoes. We designed all the styles to take into account the nature of the materials.
Why did you chose Tyvek? We chose Tyvek for numerous reasons; first trying to add to the sustainability of the planet; second was that it is unique to the product category; and third all Tyvek's properties (water proof barrier that is breathable (important for comfort and durability); its tensile strength (durability again)and its weight (comfort). It also gives a great cool look.
