I loved my old shoes. They were comfortable, broken-in, and I had been wearing them so long that the laces were more of a decoration than anything else. So when human resources decided to start enforcing the dress code, my old kicks were in trouble.
"They're old and dirty, and they reflect badly on the company." Oh, so that's the problem? Great. "Time to go find a new pair of uncomfortable loafers or something, " I thought. Fortunately for me, I found something better.
Looking through the slip-ons, I found a shoe that was different. It had the polished leather exterior that my boss wanted, but it had the comfort of my old pair of sneakers. The Tsubo Rhyt has a soft, padded interior with a simple but obscured elastic strap system to keep the shoes on. They constantly feel like they are being held to your feet, but never too tight, and never too loose.
I would recommend the Tsubo Rhyt to anyone looking for a professional-looking shoe but with a comfort that surpasses your favorite athletic shoes.
