Tough Kicks

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 onto 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.

    I'm a woman who commutes most days on flat pedals on both hybrid and road bikes, and I prefer a riding shoe with a stiff sole that blends in with everyday clothing. These fit the bill well, after I removed the stock insole and inserted my Specialized insole over another simple, foam insole; it's as close as I could get to a fit that I'd get with a shoe modeled on a women's last. The quality of the materials is very high and unlike any other shoe I've worn to ride. The sole, however, is the sticking point: as others have noted, the soles are dangerously slick in wet conditions (and I'm usually riding Wellgo pedals with pins!). And, the pins in my pedals are chewing up the soles - no surprise there. I really want to buy more Chrome shoes for riding, but I really, really need to have a pair that I can depend on in wet conditions with no hesitation. (A women-specific fit would be the ultimate, but I can adapt.)

    Sizing is a little weird, at least for me. I usually wear an 8.5 shoe, with these I found the 7.5 to fit and they leave a ridiculous amount of room in the toe. I would recommend trying them on in store. Also, the tread is abysmal; they have very poor grip when wet and what tread there is wears down quickly. The only reason I got these was because Chrome no longer makes the Truk in Black/Black for some reason. If you're a stickler for an all black shoe like I am, shell out the extra for the Storm Truk in Black.

    Tops any topsider

    I never had Topsiders so I went shopping for them. Couldn't find one Sperry shoe that was comfortable, so I gave up. Visting Seattle, I dropped into the Chrome store because the bags looked good. Saw these shoes, tried on one pair, bought them on the spot. (Shopping for shoes usually takes me hours -- I'm particular.) I wear them every day except when it rains. (I want to keep them looking nice.) Most comfortable, best-looking canvas shoe I've ever had. It tops any topsider. Incredibly well-made. Great little extra features like the pull on the back, the reinforced eyelets, the orange accent, the reinforced back. These are the best. Wish I could get another pair -- please make more!

    Just got these shoes in the mail. They looked even better than anticipated and my wife noticed me wearing them and said so herself so these shoes also happen to be wife approved. They are comfy and the material feels durable. I lookforward to wearing these for quite some time. I usually wear and nine, but read the last guys review and bought an eight point five rather than nine. And it was the right decision.
