A method of making an article of footwear (24, fig 4) comprises the steps of applying a matrix material or "sock" 14 to a die 12 , placing the die 12 within a mould 16 , injecting liquid plastics polymer into the mould 16 such that it comes into contact with the matrix material 14, allowing the polymer to set, and removing the resultant article of footwear 24. The matrix material 14 is a breathable material such as nylon which may also have anti-bacterial properties, while the polymer is a compostable or biodegradable plastics material such as a thermoplastic polyurethane. The invention also extends to an article of footwear (24, fig 4) made according to the method, which may be a dance shoe.
