Thanks for the feedback!
Athletes use rubber shoes instead of leather shoes for a couple reasons. These include the rubber not conducting electricity like friction and providing a comfier "bounce"… when running.
It's a preposition.
golf shoes have rubber soles because it is a game played on the grass which needs to have stops at every step as rubber will increase the interlocking of friction, golf shoes …have rubber soles
You can: Use White toothpaste and a toothbrush or a small scrubbing or cleaning brush of a sort and put a stripe of toothpaste on the rubber. Then, wet the toothbrush and scr…ub the soiled parts on the rubber with the toothpaste. Add more toothpaste if needed. Then wash the toothpaste and dirt off with lukewarm water and let it air dry or with a hairdryer. (Don't use colored toothpaste because the coloring can stain the rubber or fabric part of the shoes.) or you can: Make a solution of baking soda and water. Then, dip the scrubbing/cleaning brush into the solution and scrub the rubber areas of the shoe. After you are done scrubbing, wash off the rubber areas and let air dry. or you can lastly: Make a solution of bleach and water. Then do the same with your scrubbing/cleaning brush like I said in the second idea. Wash all of it off completely and let air dry. Make sure no solution gets on the fabric or else the fabric could turn white. I hope any of these helps!!!! Thanks!
Maybe, maybe not. Rubber shoes (such as rubber boots) can help prevent electrocution because rubber has a high resistance to the flow of electricity. Electricity needs a path …to the ground, so if it can't get through your feet, then you won't be electrocuted. However, it's important to note that while rubber has a very high impedance, this doesn't mean it's invincible to electricity. Lightning carries an extremely high voltage. High-voltage electricity can arc - jump from one place to another. If, for example, you're standing near a grounded object and you're struck by lightning while wearing rubber boots, the lightning could strike you and then arc to the nearby object, thus electrocuting you. If someone has been electrocuted by an electrical outlet and you need to pull them away from the source, you could use rubber boots while standing on a newspaper and then use a wooden pole to push them away from the outlet before attempting rescue and resuscitation. However, if you're outside in a lightning storm, rubber boots or no, it's best to get into a safe structure and get out of the open.
Answer In 1927 Mr. Dario Vercelli of Fiorentina, Italy, tailored a size 40 (nine and a half) lounge shoe, constructed of 97% Nepalese rubber. This shoe was… ordered by a Mr. Morgan Brankwell of Dublin, Ireland. Mr. Brankwell paid the handsome sum of 42,000 pounds, 3d and sixpence (approximately 420,000 US Dollars today). What made the shoe so expensive, was the fact that the Nepalese rubber was of the 1909 crop that is commonly held to be the purist rubber ever extracted. Not only that, but due to the scarcity of the rubber, the only available sample was recovered from the wreck of HMS Titanic which as you know was sunk in April of 1912. The whole process from recovery of the Nepalese rubber, to delivery of the shoe took four and a half years, and by the time the shoe was delivered Mr. Brankwell was on his deathbed. He was nonetheless impressed by the detailing and suppleness of his new shoe and promptly handed over the remaining balance immediately. Mr. Brankwell died two months later and the shoe was donated by his estate to the Fükenbade Shoe Museum and Hotel in Munich, Germany where it has been on display ever since.
Runnign shoes have flexible rubber soles to absorb impact.
Depending on type of rubber. Here is one way, you boil water in a large pot, then place one shoe in pot, let it sit for about 30 seconds. Then takeh out carefully, can use a f…ork, run it oder warm/hot water. Then wearing 2 or 3 socks, thicker the better, place a plastic bag over foot and insert into warm rubber shoe. Repeat for both shoes. Then wear shoes around the house, or go for walk/run/jog with them on. If this does not work, you can boil (step one), but then place a screw driver with handle inside shoe(toe area), and the metal shat of driver place downward on counter. then with body weight pull sides of shoes downward as hard as posible. Always be weary of any glue seams, especially because you boiled shoes. Last option give to Good Will, and go out and buy the right size. Good luck. RG
Rubber is an insulator, so lightning cannot effect rubber shoes.
Yes they do due to how much you walk on them. When your soles start wearing out it's time to get new shoes!!!!!!
because the rubber gives you a grip as it produces more friction and is also waterproof.
Rubber soled shoes have better traction than leather soled shoes, and you do not want to slip when you are engaged in some sport of exercise.
When I bought Simple Sandals from Whole Foods, the paper said that the average rubber shoe can take up to 1000 years to fully decompose- the sandals take 20.
I think No, plastic is not a better insulator even compared to rubber shoes... Another Answer Your question is a little like asking, "Is metal a better condu…ctor than a electrolyte?". The reason for this is that there are lots of different types of plastic and various types of rubber. Without knowing exactly which sort of plastic, and what type of rubber, there is no way of knowing which is the better insulator.
