Counters are integral to the structure of the shoe and must be sufficiently durable to withstand regular deformation during wear. They also need to be able to tolerate high levels of moisture without losing strength or shape. It is also important that counters do not move out of position during wear.

Mason Grogan supplies an extensive range of high performance toe puff and counters that vary in thickness, hardness, density and adhesive coating to suit a wide range of footwear styles. Both heat activated and solvent activated products are offered to meet different production methods.
