Resistance of shoe to warm conditions


What does it test

It tests the increase of temperature in the interior of shoe, when whole shoe is exposed to warm (rather hot) environment ‚?? sand. Depending on the type of footwear, the temperature of sand is between 150 and 250 degrees Celsius. At the same time the resistance of footwear sole is tested to warm/hot environment. Just soles can also be tested, but without measuring the increase of temperature ‚?? just deformations on the sole, caused due to exposure to warm/hot conditions.

Why is it important:

Professional footwear is exposed to many heavy conditions, including warm/hot temperatures. Whole footwear should have the capability to protect the feet of wearer, when being exposed to warm/hot temperatures of surfaces. The sole of the shoe should at the same time retain its characteristics, without melting and other deformations.
