Compared with leather shoes and rubber shoes, the color of sports shoes has the characteristics of large color application, wide range, complex color matching, and rich visual experience, mainly in the following aspects:

(1) Application of color in sports shoe upper surface material: The color of sports shoe upper surface material can be used freely, richly and diversified than leather shoes. Decorative colors include not only common colors, but also extensive use of metallic colors, lasers, and flashes.

Outsole shape

Compared with leather shoes and rubber shoes, the outsole pattern has both fine and continuous two-sided and square-continuous small patterns, as well as rough and free patterns with geometric shapes, and a light sole without any traces; both flat heels and Slope heel bottom and mid-heel suspended bottom; some sports shoe soles have nails and rake devices, and some special sports shoe outsoles are equipped with functional devices such as pulleys, ice skates and iron frames. Leather shoe outsoles rarely use sole fences, sports shoe fences are quite common, and there are many styles of fences.

Shoe last

Comparing sports shoe lasts and leather shoe lasts, there is a big difference in styling changes between the two. In order to facilitate the movement of the feet, the front and rear skewness of the sports shoe last is small, and the change in the bottom center concavity is also small, so that the last skewness curve changes relatively smoothly. In order to improve the foot-holding capacity of the shoe cavity, the sneaker last has a larger genetic girth, which makes the last plump, and the angle between the front and back of the last body is larger. The curve of the heel of the sneaker last is straighter, and the bottom line of the inner waist is also straighter. From an overall point of view, the changes in sports shoe lasts focus on the forefoot and the fore tip. From the perspective of the shape of the last, there are four main types: pointed, round, square and square.

(2) Square-toe type is generally used for the last design of bicycle competition shoes, and belongs to the more typical special sports shoe last.

(3) Square head style is generally used for ball sports shoes, such as basketball shoes. Because the front tip is stressed when landing, the stability requirements are higher, and the square-toed sports shoe last is the most used kind of sports shoes.

(4) Pointed-toe, generally used for the last design of shoes for special track and field competitions, and is not suitable for excessive landing in sports.

The change of the last of the sports shoe determines the head shape of the sports shoe. Generally speaking, unless there is a higher requirement for the force of the front tip of the sports shoe or the direction of movement, the round head, square head, and square round head can replace each other.


The application range of sports shoes materials is wider than that of leather shoes and cloth shoes.
