KELVER is one of the most important man-made fabrics of its kind to be ever developed. Due to the exclusive combination of various properties, KELVER will be used in large number of footwear applications in near future.

In coming years the athletic shoe sizing will enjoy definite standards all around the world and for attaining better support and stability in the sport shoes, designers will be looking for light weight materials and will further use gels and air systems.
