Did you know the vulcanised rubber sole of your Komrads makes the shoe flexible, yet very strong and durable? Today is the day we stop our fast-pacing lives to think about the secrets and wonders of the Komrads ICNS sneaker.
With Komrads ICNS it was our goal to keep a timeless piece of footwear alive. Komrads sends out sustainable, vegan and ethically manufactured sneakers into the world. Both for men and women. For the minimalist, we have neutral colors. For the color-lovers, there are plenty of vibrant & bold options to choose from. We make ICNS for everyone!
You may have already noticed that Komrads are made of two different soles: the camel sole and the white sole. The camel sole keeps you on your feet and prevents you from slipping, falling and eventually embarrassing yourself in public. It is skid resistant and protects the vulcanised, white sole.
Vulcanised rubber sole
The white sole is literally the soul of the sneaker. Without the vulcanised rubber sole, the shoe wouldn’t be as flexible as we know it. Because of the vulcanisation of the rubber, the material is very strong and durable. So, go ahead and kick a wall if you feel like it, your Komrads will survive. Your feet might not.
The canvas is undeniably the most loved part of the shoe. But did you know that the canvas fabric is actually very sustainable? Using organic and sustainable fabrics, cutting back on the resources needed for production, and keeping waste down are the major points of focus at Komrads to contribute to a more sustainable fashion industry.
Are you having a bit of a rough time? Are you in need of some extra comfort? That’s what Komrads are for. With its ergonomic inside the shoe provides you with extra comfort.
You can easily take out the insoles and replace them with your own custom orthotics.
This is what Komrads are made of.
Fun fact: to this day, we still produce our Komrads ICNS in the factory in Partizánske Slowakei, just like in the olden days.
