Poly Labs legacy as a polyurethane footwear components manufacturer dates back to our origins of building shoe lasts, midsoles, outsoles and insoles. Our polyurethane (PU) and injection molded Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) and Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) polymers are utilized across various footwear products. We offer limitless options: static dissipating and anti-slip, color options, and more.
We will manufacture an outsole, insole, midsole or custom footwear component specifically for your application. We will then formulate materials and polyurethane molds depending upon your desired mechanical properties (i.e. resistance, weight and durability). Contact us today to discuss your shoe-making and shoe-crafting needs.
PU, TPU, TPE and TPR Footwear Products
The polyurethane and polymer materials we use for our footwear products exhibit excellent mechanical properties – from slip, tear and abrasion resistance, to high elasticity, to overall durability. The footwear components at Poly Labs are our specialty, our strength and our legacy. The material, designs, and formulations we use in our footwear products follow our methods of striving for continuous improvement for close to 100 years. The following is a small sample of the footwear components we manufacture here at Poly Labs:
- Outsoles: single, double or triple density

Insoles, Midsoles and Outsoles
Poly Labs polyurethane (PU) insoles, midsoles and outsoles are made-to-order in our state-of-the art facility in Lewiston, Maine, USA. For decades, we’ve molded soles for a range of shoe, boot and sneaker needs. Here are a few of the properties we take into account when manufacturing our soles:
- Exceptional comfort
- Motion control
- Lightweight cushioning
- Rugged performance
- Overall durability
- Shock absorption
- Abrasion resistance
- Anti-slip properties
- Static dissipation
Our team’s combined experience in materials science, engineering and sales gives us a solid understanding of the manufacturing process and a unique ability to meet our partners’ every requirement.
Our History with Polyurethane Footwear Components
Prior to contributing to other markets (industrial, medical, impact protection), the Poly Labs heritage stems from shoe-crafting and shoe component manufacturing over a century ago. Since that time, we’ve applied our footwear-derived expertise in polyurethane (PU) and other industrial synthetics, then implemented our knowledge into a wider array of markets requiring small-pour polyurethane solutions.
Today, we work with large-scale international and small scale independent footwear brands to deliver insoles, midsoles, outsoles and custom components specific to customers needs.
