Tropicfeel is a brand that I’ve been keeping an eye on for a while. They make really great-looking products, designed for people who love to travel and live adventurously. From backpacks to shoes, their innovative range is well thought out and adds a whole new level of innovation to the travel clothing and accessory market.

So, when I was offered a chance to try out a pair of their Monsoon Shoes, I jumped at the chance.

Features

  • Water Friendly
  • Quick Dry
  • Lightweight
  • Slip Resistant
  • Breathable
  • Machine Washable

The Monsoon shoe is designed to be worn with or without socks, but as soon as you try these on, you’ll realise that they are so effortlessly comfortable that you’ll never want to wear socks again. Just slip them on and head outside.

The upper is made of a mesh, and this serves two purposes. Firstly, the shoes remain completely breathable and your feet feel cool, even when you’re not wearing socks. And secondly, the shoes are 100% water-friendly and will dry within minutes.

There is loads of grip on the shoes too. I’ve worn them scrambling over rocks on a Cornish beach, I’ve worn them hiking up a steep coastal path, and I’ve worn them on a wet paddle board. In every situation, I’ve felt completely secure, like I was wearing an expensive, technical hiking shoe. Tropicfeel calls them ‘All-Terrain Sneakers’ and it’s a pretty good description. As long as it’s not muddy, these shoes are a good bet.

However, despite the fact that the shoes grip like a hiking boot, they’re actually really lightweight. Most shoe manufacturers will tell you that their shoes are lightweight, but these ones really are. There’s not much difference in weight between the Monsoon shoes and a pair of flip-flops, which makes them a really great option for sticking in your backpack when you’re travelling.

There’s also a great sustainability element with the Tropicfeel Monsoon shoes, with a portion of the uppers being made from recycled plastic bottles. I’d always opt for a company that is making an effort to become more sustainable.

The Bottom Line

I love the Tropicfeel Monsoon shoes. They’re lightweight, unbelievably comfortable, and they’re just about the most versatile shoes you could ever need. I’ve been wearing them constantly all summer and I even have the tan lines to prove it.

Tropicfeel are making some great products for adventurers, so if you haven’t already, it’s time to check them out.
