Sometimes I like to browse Kickstarter to see what cool new products people have created and a few days ago, this one caught my eye. The ‘Ultimate Travel Shoe’ by Spanish company Tropic. Designed to be the ultimate all in one shoe for travellers, it claims to be lightweight, comfortable, breathable, anti-odour, quick-drying AND durable. A mash-up of a sports trainer, a water shoe and a hiking shoe.
The ultimate travel shoe
Apparently, it’s for everything from the beach and the sea to the city and the trail and, from first glance, I like the style of the shoe and the concept is great. It’s super convenient and saves space when packing! But given that it’s just launched on Kickstarter, with expected delivery in September, there’s no way of discovering if it lives up to the claims.
I mean developing a water-friendly shoe that you can also hike in, is a pretty tall order. That being said I admire Tropic for trying and the fact these are marketed as vegan-friendly gets a big thumbs up!
If you’re interested take a look at their Kickstarter page. The brand has already exceeded their goal by £360,000 (at time of publishing) with 41 days still to go. So it appears lots of others agree that this could be game-changing invention!
