Our Forged Rubber™ Sneakers are the best city sneakers in the world. They're made by hand, one at a time, on 70-year-old machines we salvaged from Slovakia. The rubber is harvested from nearby rubber tree farms, fused directly on to our 12oz canvas upper at 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and will not delaminate - even at the flex point. We added our signature reflective heel and an antimicrobial sock liner with quick-dry contoured footbed for sockless summers and the occasional river crossing. Forged Rubber™ Sneakers look like sneakers, built like army boots.
- Signature reflective heel for night visibility
- Contoured impact-resistant PU Footbed for all day comfort
- Made in Thailand near the rubber tree farms

great slip ons but...
I wanted to love these shoes and i do, dont get me wrong. However being hand made each shoe is a little different, these are only a month old and the left shoe has blown out the elastics from day 1, so one shoe is loose one is tight, also forged rubber is also soft rubber so in one month the bottoms are smooth no more traction, and pedal pins eat these shoes for breakfast. I had the prototype sf courier slip ons years ago that lasted longer than these will. look great as well, but id take durability over looks any day.
I have a habit of removing my shoes in the mudroom before entering the house. I have found myself forgetting to take these off since they are so comfortable. Definitely the most comfortable shoe I have ever owned. No need to break them in.
Much thanks to customer support for answering my sizing question before ordering.
