Sorbothane® Insoles Conquer Mount Kilimanjaro

Sorbothane Insoles

After several years of dreaming and a full year of planning, Dr. Barry Newton Ph. D. was on his way to Africa to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. The problem was that the airlines lost his luggage.

“I was forced to climb Kili using borrowed equipment and gear from my outfitter. Most of my equipment was discarded by previous climbers. In particular, the outfitter had only one pair of boots that came anywhere close to fitting my foot. The boots were tattered and very worn. I didn’t see how I was going to climb Kilimanjaro in a pair of worn out boots. Fortunately I had a pair of Sorbothane inserts in my street shoes. With the inserts the boots actually became comfortable to walk in. We climbed Kilimanjaro by one of the most difficult routes…I never would have made it to the top if I hadn’t had the Sorbothane inserts.” – Dr. Barry N. Newton, Ph D.

Sorbothane – Protection & Cushioning Comfort

Sorbothane is a unique material that cradles the foot in comfort and helps protect the entire body by absorbing up to 94.7% of impact shock. Unlike many standard insole materials, which can bottom out and lose effectiveness, Sorbothane performs even in extreme conditions. Durable and long lasting, Sorbothane Performance Insoles retain their cushioning comfort significantly longer than other insoles on the market. Sorbothane insoles are an excellent choice for anyone who walks, runs, works, plays sports or spends time on their feet.
