Assure footwear quality, safety and performance
Footwear testing is a suite of tests that provide quality control and assurance of footwear to chemical, quality, safety and performance requirements. Footwear for men, women & children of all material types including leather and synthetics can be tested to these standards. Examples of tests include insole stitch tear resistance, outsole tensile strength, sole bond peeling strength and more.
Businesses that engage in footwear testing assure end users that their product is compliant with quality, regulatory and safety standards. Providing such assurance is vital to maintaining a quality product offering and strong brand reputation.
Without footwear testing businesses are exposed to potential quality and safety concerns and may not be able to reach certain target markets.
