Like Crocs? You'll love Floafers



Editor's note: Crocs are the ultimate oxymoron. They're ugly and they make my feet sweat. But they clean up easy and they're indestructible. I don't wear mine anymore, but my camping friends and relatives wear them constantly around the campsite. For them and Croc-lovers everywhere, here's some info about Floafers, a new product from a startup company. (Although, I have to admit, the white ones have a sort of Cousin Eddie look about them.)


Floafers, Lightweight, Waterproof Shoes that Combine the Elegant Look of a Loafer with the Versatility of a Croc, Launch on Kickstarter

Floafers, versatile shoes that feature the style of driving loafers with the utility of true, slip-resistant water shoes that can literally be worn anywhere, today launched on Kickstarter.

For Floafers co-creator Hayes Brumbeloe, the idea for the unique shoes has been three years in the making.

“My wife and I were planning a trip to the Bahamas and I really wanted a pair of loafers I could wear to the beach, in the water or on a boat… a pair of shoes also stylish enough to fit right in, even when worn at a restaurant or an office,” Brumbeloe said. “What we eventually came up with was stylish loafers combined with the utility of crocs.”

Developed as a stylish lifestyle shoe brand, Floafers are made of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) foam – an environmentally-friendly material that is lightweight and waterproof. The soles of the shoes are made with scruff-proof and slip-resistant Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) rubber – which makes them ideal for wearing on boats or any kind of wet surface.

“When it comes to vacationing, especially on short weekend outings, with Floafers, you only need one pair of shoes,” Brumbeloe said. “They even have a utility hole in each pair that allows you attach your Floafers to your backpack, your bike, your golf bag – or even to a tube as you float down a river. Floafers even float.”

While Floafers have the versatility to be worn at the office, they are ideal for many outdoor activities including: 
  • Boating: sailing, yachting, power-boating, windsurfing, kayaking & canoeing
  • Fishing: recreational, competitive, deep-sea & weekend warriors
  • Leisure: Biking and walking, tubing & paddle-boarding
  • Outdoors: hiking, backpacking & camping
  • Travel and cruises: resorts, beaches, water parks & pool parties
  • Golfing:19th hole approved!
Since they have the stylish look of loafers, and with their slip-resistant soles and comfort, Floafers can also be worn in doctors’ offices by nurses, X-ray/lab technicians, etc.; at restaurants by chefs, line cooks, wait staff, dishwashers; or at any job, like retail, where employees are on their feet for long hours.

They are breathable, designed with strategic vent holes and side gills to allow for fast drying, and are also anti-microbial and odor-resistant.

Brumbeloe also notes that Floafers were made to be very affordable compared to crocs and other similar shoes on the market today.

Goodyear launches American-made 'Endurance' trailer tire

Editor's note: This press release from Goodyear is huge news for RVers everywhere. Google "RV Tire" and you'll be bombarded with hits about Chinese-made tires prone to blowouts. Just last summer we had a blowout on our way to a campground in Cooperstown, N.Y. If these Endurance tires from Goodyear are any good at all, they will quickly dominate the market.

For years, hobbyists who tow boats, jet skis and snowmobiles to recreational destinations have asked for an American-manufactured trailer tire to help carry their cargo with confidence. Millions of workers who haul equipment from job to job have echoed that desire.

The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has answered that call with the new Endurance trailer tire, which was unveiled this week during Goodyear’s 2017 Customer Conference in Orlando, Fla.

“Goodyear is proud and excited to introduce the Endurance, the only radial special trailer tire built in the United States,” said Ryan Patterson, president of Goodyear’s North American consumer tire business.

A tire capable of transporting the heaviest and most crucial cargo, The Goodyear Endurance features Goodyear Durawall Technology, which helps resist sidewall cuts and punctures.

Available in Load Ranges D and E to accommodate larger trailer load capacities, the entire Endurance trailer line carries the N speed rating allowing consumers to travel at highway speeds. The Endurance also contains a wide range of features, including:
  • An optimized tread depth and decoupling groove, which help it remain cool while towing heavy loads;
  • Rugged fabric-steel construction, which offers improved durability and carrying capacity while remaining compatible with tire pressure monitoring systems and typical tire inflation stations;
  • A specialized inner liner, which minimizes air loss in trailer applications; and
  • A scuff guard, which helps protect sidewalls.

In addition to introducing the new Endurance, Goodyear has unveiled a brand new, special trailer size: ST 255/85R16. The Endurance is the only tire on the market available in that size.

“The launch of the Goodyear Endurance is an exciting development for consumers who want a durable, domestically manufactured tire that they can trust to carry their important cargo,” said Patterson. “Goodyear is proud to meet this need with the new Endurance.”

Goodyear is one of the world’s largest tire companies. It employs about 66,000 people and manufactures its products in 48 facilities in 21 countries around the world. Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio, and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg, strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry.
