The Rainy Day is comfortable to wear barefoot due to its breathable pigskin leather-covered insole.
Leather doesn’t hold odour and bacteria as much as synthetic materials, and just feels better on your feet.
We start by melting raw rubber harvested from rubber trees, and then mix it with curatives and colour pigments.
After mixing it’s rolled out into sheets and the diamond pattern is pressed into the warm rubber.
Once cooled, the rubber is then cut to shape, formed by hand over a shoe last, and baked in a high temperature vulcanizing oven.
The lining is made from a soft jersey knit.
During construction, it is draped over the last like a sock and fused directly with the rubber upper.
The lightweight soles are made from EVA plastic pellets, the same material used to make flip-flops.
Flip-flops don’t have the best surface grip, so we compress grippy rubber pods on the bottom of the outsole to help with traction and durability.
Rubber is much better at gripping wet and dry surfaces than EVA plastic, and lasts a lot longer too!
