YDS is the leading producer of Dual Density Rubber (DDR) injected soles in the world. This is a special formula of rubber compound which is injected in two densities to the uppers; a tough rubber outer skin and a lower density midsole where air is injected into the rubber to create a lightweight shock absorbing cushioned bed for the foot. This technology is important for those working and existing in harsh conditions where a highly durable but comfortable solution is required, so is an enormous advantage in footwear.
YDS has a license to produce GORE-TEX® footwear. This is not only a product and performance benefit but an assurance of product quality as the stipulated lab testing of footwear by WL GORE as part of the agreement is so highly rigorous.
