PVC Sole & PU Sole

Made up of the same material that is used for manufacturing hard plastic pipes, Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) sole offered a neck and neck competition to PU sole. Its excellent insulation, durability, and resistance to abrasion, water and chemicals were difficult to compete with. However, PU sole suppliers didn't need to worry for long as the PVC sole's poor ventilation, texture and grip on the ground gave the PU sole an edge to finally make it the best sole material.
