Bombproof sneakers by Chrome

Forged Rubber: 70 Years in the Making from Chrome Industries on Vimeo.

CHROME BUILT THEIR FORGED RUBBER™ SNEAKERS BECAUSE THEY WERE TIRED OF CANVAS SNEAKERS FALLING APART. THEY WANTED AN EVERYDAY SNEAKER THAT LASTS, SO THEY TOOLED A MORE BOMBPROOF WAY TO MAKE SNEAKERS. ALL FORGED RUBBER™ SNEAKERS ARE COMFORTABLE IMMEDIATELY, DON'T STINK, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, ARE BUILT TO LAST.

As always, we're too small to keep all of these in all sizes in stock, but we are happy to get them in for you, which usually doesn't take much longer than a week.

 

Forged in Rubber. Worn Through Hell. Chrome's Forged Rubber™ sneakers are made by hand, one at a time, on 70-year-old machines they salvaged from Slovakia. Forged Rubber™ is a slower, more bombproof way to make vulcanized shoes. The rubber is harvested from nearby rubber tree farms and forged directly to the canvas upper at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. The result is a bond that is durable, a sole that is incredibly flexible, and a shoe that can survive even the harshest conditions of the city. Chrome Forged Rubber™ is a resourceful way to make a durable city sneaker.
