    What is a gum rubber sole?

    The gum rubber sole is usually implemented into sports shoes developed for indoor, hardcourt sports, such as squash, badminton, and tennis. There are some advantages to a gum rubber sole:

    1)  The rubber does not leave marks upon a hard court surface.

    2)  The rubber heats up as you play, providing additional grip.

    3)  It is Natural Rubber as opposed to synthetic and can be cured by vulcanizing.

    4)  It is usually a tan or brown color.
