    Abstract

    Nowadays, more and more people are keen on investing in their own personal fitness. In this paper, a series of experiments were conducted to investigate the feasibility of using ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam for comfort fitting, with a special reference to shoes applications. Based on the experimental results obtained, it was concluded that the EVA foam examined in this study could satisfy most of the requirements for comfort fitting shoes in terms of shape fixity, shape recovery, and elasticity. The two problems spotted in this study may be easily solved by reducing the porosity ratio of the EVA foam and slightly decreasing the glass transition temperature of the foam.
