Chrome Introduces the STORM 415 Fabric and Cordura Footwear Mar 5, 2013

Today, Chrome launched the 415 Urban Work Boot and the STORM 415 Urban Work Boot. These aren’t your normal sneakers. Think of them as mobility work boots: all the stability of a boot with the comfort of a sneaker. The STORM 415 is made from waterproof cordura (pictured) and the 415 Urban is fabric. I like the look of these boots and there’s more information below, including the official PR from Chrome.

Chrome’s designers saw the need for a boot that was lightweight and brilliantly utilitarian (not heavy and clunky), and the 415 line delivers, whether you’re on your feet all day or always on the run. The 415 (the area code of Chrome’s San Francisco HQ) is designed for superior out-of-the box comfort and year-round survival in the city.

Built to last and offered in both waterproof-breathable STORM fabric and 1,000-Denier Cordura, the 415 features 100% vulcanized construction with a skid-resistant sole, a tight heel cup, and a slightly wider toe box for a better fit—and pain-free pedaling when you’re on the bike. Other design highlights include a padded ankle collar, a reflective heel pull-loop for night visibility, and a low-profile design for great looks and easy toe-cage compatibility.

The STORM 415 combines Chrome’s waterproof-breathable STORM technology with oiled full-grain leather, which weathers and distresses well over time while providing abrasion resistance and defense against the elements. Constructed with a breathable neoprene membrane that lets heat out while preventing water from getting in, the STORM 415 is a truly innovative work boot that outperforms any other in its class. With a comfortable, flexible, athletic fit, the STORM 415 is made to be worn all day, every day.

Like all Chrome footwear and apparel, the 415 Work Boot comes with a 365-day warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

RETAIL AVAILABILITY: 3/5/13 in Chrome HUBS in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Portland—and online at chromeindustries.com.

RETAIL PRICE:
Cordura 415 Urban Work Boot: $120

STORM 415 Urban Work Boot: $150

    If they made this in a pro series version with an spd i would get them in a heartbeat. Yet as is they are forgettable.

    I will totally buy these if the sole is reasonable.  It’s too bad they didn’t come out late last fall…as it is, I’ll only get them if they are around late next summer

    I’d buy that if they came with an spd possibility…
