Tropic sneakers are made for all sorts of outdoor adventures. Including the underwater ones. The sneakers use a 3D mesh, so water passes right through. Add comfort for sports and toughness for hiking and it’s easy to see why this startup has raised almost $2 million on Kickstarter.
These sneakers are perfect for travellers looking to lighten their load. Tropic weighs just 200g and dries faster than regular shoes. Wear them with or without socks thanks to the anti-odour technology. Go from the beach straight to dinner. There’s no need to take multiple pairs of shoes on your next backpacking adventure.
Other Tropic features include patented elastic laces, an elastic counter heel and a removable and perforated footbed shape for increased comfort. All the materials and treatments are done in an environmentally responsible way.
Tropic is a Barcelona-based startup focused on creating versatile, long-lasting pieces encouraging people to focus more on the outdoors and less on packing the right gear.
Tropic is campaigning on Kickstarter raising almost $2 million, and there’s still plenty of time for that to increase. A pair of sneakers costs approximately $91 AUD with shipping expected September 2018. Tropic sneakers are available in Black, Khaki, Sea Blue, Light Grey and All Black colourways.
