Vibram’s (re)creation of the vintage corded sole that came about during World War II. When rubber production was scarce, US manufacturing infused cords into the soles for the production of military boots. While these (re)creations don’t have as many cords as the originals, they do still maintain some cords for durability and superior longevity. This is a limited run sole that can also be seen in our combination sole category.
WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
Rubber has superior grip, weather protection and comfort over leather soles. Vibram Corded soles are better than leather soles in the rain, as they provide more grip and will last longer than leather when they get wet.
