Reach for the SKYE: SKYE Footwear Launches the Ultimate Sneaker-Boots

In our multitasking lives, we are always on the lookout for items that go the extra mile, including our footwear. So when we heard about the new Sneaker-Boot hybrids from SKYE Footwear, of course we were intrigued. We love footwear that do double duty, especially when it comes to comfort and style. Boasting the durability of boots and the comfort of sneakers, the SKYE Footwear Sneaker-Boots provides everything you need in great footwear - comfort, protection, and most importantly, style.

The new sneaker-boot hybrids come in two styles, the Stnley and the Pembrtn, each of which comes in two colors. The new shoes are ergonomically-engineered to support the whole body, not just the feet. They boast sculpted insole supports for the arch and heel, which relieve pressure points to provide all-day comfort. The shoes are easy to slide on and off with a convenient zipper closure system and no-tie lace design. In addition to providing comfort, the shoes bring an unmatched level of protection, engineered with military-grade Cordura. Strategically placed welded TPR provides a weather shield and supports high-wear areas. We mimicked the Japanese Dou method to weatherproof the new sneaker-boots, providing ultimate protection and durability. Additionally, a sawtooth outsole grip, inspired by Formula One tires, provides excellent traction in all types of weather, while the added mudguard protection prevents damage to the toe box.

The Pembrtn merges the slip-on sneaker style with boot functionality to keep feet warm, comfortable and prepared for any activity.

The Stnley style combines a traditional hiking boot appearance with the modern simplicity of sneakers to keep feet dry while taking on new adventures. We had the wonderful pleasure of rocking the Stnley in during the many days of monsoon levels of rain last week. Not only were they incredibly comfortable (each step we took felt like we were stepping on pillows), the lightweight Stnley fully supported our high arch, and snugly kept our ankle in place without feeling stiff or hurting. We happily waded through and jumped into the puddles of rain without worrying about our feet getting wet (check out the Stnley in action on our insta post).

As the only sustainably made sneaker-boots, SKYE Footwear uses eco-friendly materials without sacrificing style or function. All rubber parts are made of 100% biodegradable natural rubber, while the outer shoe material is made from recycled water bottles.

The SKYE Sneaker-Boots are currently available for preorder on Kickstarter for US$99.00, which includes one (1) pair of SKYE Sneaker-Boots for 50% off the future retail price. For more information about the campaign or to place an order, visit
