Our focus is on everyday wear, fit and comfort. Built new from the ground up, OBRA serves modern utilitarian footwear.
We began by designing and developing a roomy, comfortable last without compromising sharp, modern esthetics.
Next, we spared no expense and developed the lightweight OBRA Working Footbed™—built of 20mm dual-density thermoformed EVA and lined with lush premium microfiber. It is designed to provide lasting comfort and superior stability.
The vulcanized soul of OBRA sneakers. We developed new tooling to subtly mark the brand's authenticity onto the tall OBRA foxing tape and use high-abrasion resistance rubber for durability.
Developed with foot protection in mind. As with the last, function defines our form and looks.
THE WRAP TOE
Standard extra-thick OBRA vulcanized rubber foxing with additional forefoot wrap-around protection.
THE FULL CAP:
Thick OBRA rubber forefoot wrap-around protection plus our signature biased protective toe cap.
The new OBRA outsole tooling is inspired by the imposing simplicity of Brutalist architecture. From this proprietary tooling, we output highly functional soles in soft and grippy rubber that enhance traction and comfort.
Finally, from the classic slip-on silhouette, to side zippers on the high tops, and generously large finger-loops featured on all styles, the shoes are designed to facilitate easy on-and-off.
