the global nomad. All terrain vehicle. a project shelved in 2002 as we waited for both materials and our abilities to be able to create this how we wanted to. Simple but far more advanced than any of our other models. This one we use one layer footbed (doesn't get as wet) and add multiple layers of Eva (that same material that helped start the running boom in the 60's, although much lighter and more resilient then the Eva from then) This material is super light and doesn't moosh out. The outsole we use an ultralight vibram super flex which is both grippy, light, and flexible. *Chris has been testing these out for over 1 year, in rivers, skateboarding, hiking- its the all around nomad. Outsoles, midsoles, and assembly are made using vintage sandal machinery, and new material in North Carolina. Uppers are made in our facility in Nicaragua like always... Peace. You need a pair of these. Sandals in action in above pictures have over 6 months daily wear on them from someone who weighs approximately 170 lbs and travels - always trusting his cape.
