Chrome bags and apparel out of San Francisco knows how to appreciate their messengers. They figured if couriers can ride bikes in the hills of this West Coast gem, they might as well be able to ride a barrel connected to some ropes. That’s right they threw an old fashioned rodeo right in their store.
Read the recap here.
They also know how to appreciate the feet of us riders. They’ve just come out with a new shoe…the Toburk Slip-on.
Here is a press release:
After countless requests to build a classic slip-on shoe that will hold up on the bike, Chrome is proud to announce the newest addition to their footwear line, the Tobruk.
The Tobruk is filled with details that make riding in them easier and the shoe, itself, tougher. Those features include:
Â· Low profile design to better fit into a toe cage
Â· 100% vulcanized construction
Â· Weatherproof 1,000 denier Cordura with back-padding
Â· Re-enforced nylon/glass fiber shank to support the midsole
Â· Board lasted sole to eliminate pedal hot spot
Â· Skid resistant contact rubber on the sole
Â· Polyurethane contoured crash pad insole
Â· Durable rubber heel cup with reflective safety hit
Â· Center gore slip-on design
After leading the way in both bag and apparel design and manufacturing, footwear was the natural extension of Chromeâ€™s commitment to building durable, functional products that last. It just so happens that they look great too.
