Kumak by TSUBO

Our trip to Cubao last night was not only to attend a post-xmas party but to buy a pair of shoes for the husband in Res Toe Run.  Everyone who knows him well should understand why he needs one. His last good footwear purchase was way back 3 years ago!  


We were lucky to avail of the 50%-off sale on Tsubo footwear. But ofcourse I had to make sure it also fit me well.  The advantage of having almost the same foot size as your husband :-). Actually i have bigger feet than him...

The husband needed something rugged, something to use during field work and Tsubo's Kumak are just perfect.... Over Sanuk, which are not actually shoes, but sandals.. :-)

The footbed - our obsessive attention to detail means we use double density polyurethane footbed/midsole, so it's firmer in the heel where added support is needed and softer in the foreparts to give extra cushioning and comfort. Feet get hot when used - we all know that which is why we have perforated air channels to allow air to circulate around your feet on the right side of toasty warm. The midsole provides contoured lateral and longitudinal support


My favorite part is the sole...

The sole - No one wants to slip over, it makes us feel stupid and can ruin our clothes. Which is why our rubber soles are both abrasion and skid resistant. Banana skins, do your worst. Another unique feature of our shoes are our bubbles. And not just any old bubbles, but rubber ones for shock absorption. And believe us when we say your knees will thank you in later life (source)
