The Rutt Shoes & Co.
Functionally,
I would like you to wear it with longer attachment.
From that feeling,
The outsole also uses a rubber sole that was originally developed.

About 1/3 of the year is raining in Japan.

I personally make many business trips, and I often think, "I want shoes that I can wear without worrying about the weather."
Before the brand was launched, we decided that the outsole would be rubber.


Created a wooden pattern that considers the Japanese foot type that can correspond to the coordination that incorporates American trad, casual, military elements,
I tried combining various parts to select a sole that fits this wooden pattern from existing sole parts.

If you use this part, it will give you the impression of a casual shoes.
On the contrary, if you use those parts, it looks like a little delicate dress shoes.

result,
"Let's develop our own! ”,


A functional rubber sole that conveys the meaning created by the original,
Aiming for a rubber sole that incorporates new specifications ...


The design produces two types of unevenness for high grip
Based on Vibram # 700,
The chevron-shaped (mountain-shaped) block pattern carved on the surface does not become too brave,
The width of the chevron shape is reduced,
Designed to fit the ball joint with a wide space between the chevron patterns.

The biggest feature of this sole part is
It is on the back (not visible when the shoes are made)

It is pulled out in a rod shape and has a slit.
This shape is used because rubbers interfere with each other when bent by simply making a notch.

As a result, the flexibility of the sole is greatly improved, and at the same time,
It has become a lightweight and practical sole part.
