  Q: What material is a breathable mesh made from for sneakers?

  A: updated (16/03/2012)

They are usually made from fabric; while it's possible to make a breathable mesh from most materials - such as pvc plastics - the technology lends itself more naturally to flexible materials like natural and manmade fabrics. As the name suggests, a breathable mesh is designed to let the foot breath more easily, and cut down on sweat and the build up of bacteria. A breathable mesh is usually integrated alongside more stable materials such as leather and suede. Without the leather/suede placed around the toes and heel, the mesh fabric would be incapable of holding the foot in position, leading to injuries such as a strained ankle.
