Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9628054A1] An article of footwear having a ventilated sole (1), the sole being formed of a substantially impermeable resilient material and having internally an air reservoir arrangement (2/3) connected to the interior of the footwear via perforations (9), each of which has along its length a relatively wide region (9A) open to the interior of the footwear and a relatively narrow region (9B) connecting the relatively wide region (9A) to the air reservoir arrangement (2/3). The sole has a ventilation arrangement (4/5/8) serving for venting the air reservoir arrangement (2/3) externally of the footwear. The sequential compression, during the wearer's step, of reservoir chambers (2A, 2B and 2C), and the interconnecting ducts (3), in combination with the synchronous sequential occlusion of the perforations (9) by the wearer's foot, restricts or prevents back-flow of moisture laden air within the sole.
