Chrome industries has a new line of shoes hitting the streets, made from an old-school manufacturing method. 70 year old that is.
I was lucky enough to receive a pair in advance and I’m loving them. Super comfortable on and off the bike.
These volcunized kicks are made from recycled machines found in Slovakia and were originally used to make army boots. Now they’ve been adapted by Chrome to make forged rubber sneakers, made individually by hand and maintaing Chrome’s values of making thoughtful, well-made products.
To get a better idea of the process Chrome is having a tour to show off the new shoes and how they are made:
