Today, let’s talk about “can Yeezy slides shrink?”.
As we all know, the material of shoes is made of EVA foam.
Before starting to discuss this issue, I think you should first understand that EVA foam will shrink under high temperature conditions.
Do not believe? you can google it.
EVA material is made by copolymerization of ethylene (E) and vinyl acetate (VA). EVA foam sheet has good softness and elasticity, and the surface gloss and chemical stability are also very good. The material is anti-aging, odor-resistant, non-toxic, soft and shock-absorbing and biodegradable, so it has a wide range of uses.
The material used in EVA Yeezy slides is ethylene/vinyl acetate copolymer (also known as ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer), which is obtained by copolymerizing ethylene (E) and vinyl acetate (VA). The full English name is EthyleneVinylAcetate. Referred to as EVA, the content is 5% to 40%.
EVA is a relatively common midsole material, usually called primary foam, which has a certain buffering effect, but this material is very slippery, so it is usually mixed with hard rubber.
Characteristics EVA resin is characterized by good softness, rubber-like elasticity, good flexibility under 0℃, good transparency and surface gloss, good chemical stability, anti-aging and ozone resistance Good, non-toxic. Good blending with fillers, good coloring and molding processability.
However, EVA generally has a heat distortion temperature of 60-80 degrees and a melting point of 80-120 degrees.
Do Yeezy Slides Shrink under the Sun？
Yes. Yeezy Slides will shrink under high temperature. So try not to put your Yeezy slides under the sun for a long time.
But if your Yeezy slides have shrunk! So what to do?
You can try soaking your Yeezy slides in hot water to see if they swell, or let them air dry after soaking, out of direct sunlight.
But you can rest assured that washing in water won’t deform your Yeezy slides.
