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.)

    These shoes were a 1/2 size too large. I ordered the same size Chrome sneaker as the ones I already had thinking these would fit the same. Funny thing was a co-worker's ordered shoes from the same Chrome sale and his were 1/2 size large as well. If I believed in conspiracy theories I'd suggest a whole batch of shoes arrived from the Chrome factory with mislabeled sizing and rather than fix the problem, Chrome just slapped a 'sale' tag on the lot and got rid of them on the internet. No returns makes it convenient. I won't be buying anything online from Chrome any longer.

      Comments about Chrome Ishak Sneaker:

      I waited two years to make this review. Needed a sort of dressier shoe for work, but that I could bike to and from in. These are comfortable, look good with slacks and a polo, or jeans on a casual night and so far have held up very well. They are minimal cushion which is what I like, on the heavy side, but durable. I sprayed mine down with a water guard right away. I think this helped. I have wide feet and these have a nice toe box. The heels are stiff, it was not an issue for me as a woman, but men tend to have a thicker Achilles and I can see how that could be an issue. After about 2 weeks the heels were broke in. However within the 1st year the forged rubber began to wear smooth. I have toe straps so it was OK on the bike for a while but wet or ice, forget it. So even though the tops of the shoes look great the bottoms are done. So I am looking to replace. 2 years is one year 3 months longer than I got with my Keens so I'll take it as a win. I'll buy a new pair but look at the other models with a thicker meatier sole. Also, my nephew is a shoe collector and loved these. So bonus points for this old lady.

      Great shoes

      Comments about Ishak Sneaker - Final Sale:

      These shoes are good looking, sturdy, and comfortable. The reflective detail on the back on along the laces is great for late/early dark commutes. Ive worn them in light rain and they kept my feet dry; and dirt brushes off easily. I wear a women's size 7 and ordered a size 5.5--they fit well with insoles in.

      I take a size 9 for most shoes but these shoes run a bit long. I take a size 8.5 for these shoes.

      Perfect for an extra pair of business casual wear to store at the office when using my bicycle or motorcycle to commute.
