We loaded up our DESMA machine and are bringing Forged Rubber to all our HUBs.
COMING UP: CHICAGO July 11th + 12th
Be one of the first 100 people at our CHI HUB on 7/11 and GET 50% OFF one pair of #forgedrubber sneakers. Shoes will be made. Beers will be drunk. High-fives will be given.
Our New Chrome Forged Rubber™ Sneakers are made the same way army boots were made 70 years ago, one at a time, by hand. The process uses: 70-year-old DESMA machines that we salvaged from a basement in Slovakia, virgin rubber, 12 oz. canvas uppers (the same grade used to make fire hoses), pressure, and heat – the rubber sole is fused to the upper at 300 degrees.
Yeah, we're geeking out about it – we even made a video about it:http://vimeo.com/98179718
