Release Date: Available now

Price: Retail ranges from $75 to $85 USD

Editor’s Notes: The “Made for the Makers” collection does exactly what it says: the pack has been designed for everyday creatives that are constantly on the move and always on their feet, hence the “heavy duty” construction.

Whether you work in music, art, or sports, the UltraCush sockliner will guarantee superior comfort, while the water and dirt resistant canvas uppers mean you don’t have to worry about where you rock the kicks.
