Sneakers have been around for well over a century. Charles Goodyear invented vulcanized rubber in 1839, and by the 1860s people were wearing rubber-soled shoes to play croquet and tennis. In the 1920s, Converse introduced the iconic sneakers that became known as the Chuck Taylor All-Stars. In the 1960s, Oregon track coach Bill Bowerman invented the modern running shoe and founded Nike with Phil Knight. And in the 1980s, Air Jordans were born. Over all those years, there have been a lot of significant innovations that have made sneakers lighter and more comfortable. Now a company called Indestructible Shoes is taking the evolution of sneakers one step further by making them—yep, you guessed it—indestructible.
Today, sneakers are the most popular form of footwear in the world. In fact, Americans alone spend roughly $20 billion on sneakers every single year. Unfortunately, while traditional sneakers are light, comfortable, and stylish, they aren’t very durable, and they don't offer much protection for your feet. So while they’re perfect for working out or running errands around town, they’re not well-suited for vigorous activity in the great outdoors, let alone a physically demanding workplace where your toes might get crushed by heavy machinery.
That’s where Indestructible Shoes comes in.
The folks at Indestructible Shoes realized that there’s a huge hole in the shoe industry. So they set out to make shoes that combine the protection and durability of heavy duty work boots with the style and comfort of sneakers.
The results are nothing short of revolutionary. Indestructible Shoes have all the features you would expect in a high-end work book, including steel toes, skid-proof grips, shock-absorption technology, anti-puncture heels, electric shock insulation, and ultra durable materials. However, they don’t look like work boots. They look like sneakers.
For anybody who wears work boots on a regular basis, whether it’s for a living or simply to do work around the house, that probably sounds too good to be true. But it’s not. And right now Indestructible Shoes has some pretty insane deals off their most popular shoes.
CamoX Black White
One of the newest designs from Indestructible Shoes, the CamoX is the ultimate year-round, all-in-one shoe. The outsole is extremely flexible and the insole features extra padding and 3D arch support, providing you with superior all-day comfort. They’re also easy to slip on and off, saving time and your back. But the CamoX doesn’t just offer comfort. With European steel toes, a puncture-resistant sole made from military grade kevlar, and shock-absorbing cushioning in the midsole, the CamoX also offers serious protection. And it’s completely waterproof, so you can always count on your feet staying dry and comfortable.
The Ryder is very similar to the CamoX. For convenience, the Ryder is easy to slip on and off with it’s no-tie lacing system. For comfort, it has an extremely flexible outsole and a padded shock-absorbing insole. For safety is has European steel toes, a puncture-resistant sole made from military grade kevlar, and shock-absorbing cushioning in the midsole. However, whereas the CamoX provides protection from the elements, the Ryder features a flymesh upper that provides ultimate temperature control and breathability.
Indestructible Shoes — Hummer Black
Last but not least is the latest design from Indestructible Shoes, the Hummer, which is something of a cross between the Ryder and the CamoX. It has all the safety and comfort features we’ve come to expect from Indestructible Shoes—including European steel toes, flexible puncture-resistant soles, and shock-absorbing cushioning—with an ultra-stylish knit upper and traditional lace enclosure. They’re tough enough to wear on a construction site, but sharp enough to wear to a nice restaurant or bar on the weekend.
So if you’re looking for the perfect all-in-one shoe that can handle work, play, and everything in between, you need to take a look at Indestructible Shoes. And there’s no better time than now, because all the styles mentioned here are currently 44 percent off the regular price.
