Canvas sneakers are footwear made of canvas. Crafted with the same material often used in sails, these general purpose sneakers are the perfect summer footwear for all ages and sexes. The closely woven canvas fabric is sturdy yet lightweight and flexible, and allows heat to flow through the pores of a fabric. The soles of canvas sneakers are usually made of rubber and offer good grip on wet surfaces.
Latex is a chemical substance which is used to create rubber. Natural latex is obtained from the sap of certain plants and can be later vulcanized and finished into a variety of products. Latex materials are known to have many applications especially in the footwear industry where they can be used to make shoe insoles and outsoles to add flexibility and extra cushioning.
