I wrote about Cushe a few weeks back on their Coastal Supremacy collection and this is another installment covering their Universal Traveller collection. This collection is a rugged, robust and hardwearing range designed for outdoor sports (including on snow) and in transit (travel).
Inspired by the outdoors and adventure travel, Cushe uses premium, rich full grain leathers and protective features to get you where you need to be. Looking at the end use of each style, Cushe has turned the benefits and features required into bold design statements, such as the signature oversized protective toe bumpers and multi-directional sole grip.
The Baja Mocc WP is a chic waterproof shoe. The shoe weighs 11.6 ounces, has a stack height of 32mm and is about a 6mm drop shoe. The toe box is wide enough to accommodate my wide feet.
The Baja Mocc WP has a durable leather upper that is easy to clean and maintain. It has suede accents on the toe area and heel for style.
It also feature a single piece ventilated stretch mesh sock liner for a snug fit and moisture wicking. There are also pull tabs on the tongue and heel for easy on off.
Finally, the Baja Mocc WP is comprised of a waterproof seam sealed construction.
Just like the Wild Run, the outsole is made of molded Vibram® rubber with a unique 2-color footprint tread.
These shoes are designed to be rugged and durable (Vibram soles). The shoes are very comfortable and they flex at the right spots on the forefoot. The materials used for the construction of both models are top notch and gives you great value for the money.
Cushe Universal Traveller are also great with jeans for casual and business wear. So start living the Cushe life and grab yourself a pair of Baja Mocc WP and let your journey begin!
