How does the Microban Fresh Fabric System™ work?
Footwear is unavoidably subjected to sweat and heat on a regular basis and is difficult to keep clean, providing an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive and generate odors. In fact, a recent study indicated that over 80 % of consumers were interested in having antimicrobial technology incorporated into the fabric of their footwear. Microban built-in product protection for textile applications shows high antimicrobial efficacy, inhibiting the growth of bacteria and fungi by up to 99.9 %, keeping footwear fresher for longer. This technology helps to prevent odors, stains, and premature disposal, prolonging the useable lifetime of the product and reducing textile waste.
