Fashion sneakers are shoes designed based on trends and aesthetics, rather than on athletic performance characteristics. Fashion sneakers are as diverse in style and design as the trends they follow and can be found in a wide variety of materials and colors. Still, fashion sneakers maintain a sporting look and are widely worn as stylish casual footwear.
TPU, or Thermoplastic Urethane, is synthetic material used in the footwear industry to manufacture shoe outersoles and as an added compound on the midsole to prevent overpronation. TPU soles generally provide enhanced slip and abrasion resistance as well as durability.
