Abstract:

The aim of the research was to determine the effect of footwear materials used on the microclimate inside shoes and to identify which material set provides optimal comfort to users. The microclimate of the interior of 21 pairs of footwear was tested. Selected nonwovens, natural leather, and leather-like materials were used to make the upper, lining and insole lining. Determined was the amount of water absorbed on the sock fibres, and measurement was taken of the relative humidity and temperature, as well as the permeability and sorption of outer materials and lining elements.Results of the researches carried out showed that in order to ensure adequate footwear comfort, materials for the upper should have high permeability, while lining materials should have both high sorption and permeability.
