CHI Chrome Factory Tour: Forged Rubber Sneakers
Chrome turns modern manufacturing upside down by resurrecting 70-year-old Forged Rubber machines originally used to make army boots. Discovered in eastern Slovakia, an area of the world known for its demanding city landscapes, the Forged Rubber machines were refurbished and adapted to make sneakers that embody the brand’s spirit of making thoughtful, well-made products.
Each Forged Rubber sneaker is individually made by hand using heated pressure and fused directly onto the upper to ensure no separation between the upper and the sole. A reflective heel and odor resistant technology are also integrated for daily city survival.
