QUESTIONS ABOUT GENUINE CAMBRELLE®
WHAT IS CAMBRELLE®? Cambrelle ® is a superior non-woven synthetic fabric used primarily as a lining for shoes, boots and slippers. It is also used in some luggage, uplhostery and clothing items.
WHAT MAKES CAMBRELLE® TECHNOLOGICALLY MORE ADVANCED THAN OTHER SHOE LININGS? The technologies that went into developing Cambrelle® are complex. With patented fiber, Cambrelle®is specially engineered through a process which spins two types of nylon together. The fiber is melded into a non-woven fabric which features an extremely high absorption rate, excellent breathability and resistance to odor, abrasion and pilling for strength and durability.
HOW IS CAMBRELLE® TEXTURED? A special pattern, made up of hundreds of soft breathable pores in every square inch, is the feature of all Cambrelle®linings. Soft and flexible yet very strong, Cambrelle® linings are equally suited to high fashion as well as to rugged boots. Colors and patterns imprint easily for design and styling purposes.
HOW DOES CAMBRELLE® COMPARE WITH OTHER LINING MATERIALS ON THE MARKET? Leather, cotton and man-made synthetics such as tricot and vinyl are the most common lining materials used today. Cambrelle®does not compete with leather, rather it complements leather shoes as a lining or reinforcement. While it remains in reputation as the “ultimate” shoe lining, leather is becoming less frequently used to line shoes today because it is so expensive. Although leather is absorbent, it takes a very long time to dry once soaked with water or perspiration. It also tends to crack and rot. Cambrelle® on the other hand, absorbs three times its weight in moisture and perspiration and dries out in just four hours. Further, Cambrelle®has an extremely high resistance to fungus, rot, chafing and cracking .
Cotton, although very absorbent, wears very poorly because fungus, mildew and bacteria get into the material and eventually cause it to rot. The fungus will also foster foot odor.
Tricot has been very popular in shoe linings in the past years because it is inexpensive for shoe manufacturers. Friction caused while walking produces heat, which in turn produces perspiration and discomfort. Other man-made fabrics, such as vinyl, cause these very same problems because they are not permeable.
Some fabrics, such as polypropylene, “wick” allow moisture to pass through without absorption. There is no comparison between absorption and wicking. Wicking only transfers the foot acid problem deeper into the shoe, affecting the leather and multiplying the cause of rot, mildew and foot odors.
Cambrelle®absorbs more liquid and dries out faster than any other lining in use today. It allows feet to breathe and gives a soft, cushiony feel. It will keep the perspiration from penetrating the outer material and will thus serve to protect the shoe. A Cambrelle® lining is guaranteed to last as long as any shoe.
CAN CAMBRELLE® HELP RELIEVE THE DISCOMFORT OF WOMEN’S HIGH-HEELED SHOES? Yes.
Most people think that the extreme soreness results from the pressure high heels put on the balls of the feet. While this is true to a point, one overlooked reason is the foot’s inability to be dry and comfortable with certain types of linings that don’t absorb. In these cases, the pressure causes the feet to become very hot and sticky, and, if the moisture isn’t absorbed into the lining, a burning sensation results.
IS CAMBRELLE® APPROPRIATE FOR SPORTS FOOTWEAR, WORKSHOES OR OUTDOOR BOOTS?
Definitely. One of the ultimate tests for any lining is when a shoe is subjected to repeated starts and stops and excessive perspiration. Time after time….in hockey, tennis, running, hiking or during tough working conditions….Cambrelle®has proved that its high absorption capability helps keep feet dry and comfortable, and that it endures the friction and wear caused by strenuous activity.
