SOM Footwear celebrates our first full year of being in production this month! We want to take the time to sincerely thank each and every one of you for supporting SOM Footwear. Whether you've purchased a pair of shoes or simply show your support by helping us spread the word about SOM, we would not be where we are today without all of you!
To celebrate this milestone, we will be hosting a special Happy Hour at the factory on July 31st from 4pm-7pm. If you're in the Montrose area, stop by and meet the creators of SOM! We will also be giving factory tours. Please RSVP on our Facebook page if you plan on attending.
Olie and our research and development team are always looking for ways to be innovative in our design.
In our new soling process, we've found a more environmentally friendly way to make our sole. We use the same Vibram soft sole that you love, but we've attached a Vibram reinforced rubber band to the bottom edge of the shoe (see photo below). This band provides even better abrasion resistance and makes the final product .1oz lighter.
This process greatly reduces our amount of waste created per shoe and offers a cleaner finished product. It's a cleaner and more efficient production process for us and a better finished product for you- it's a win-win!
New Pattern Released
As we were getting ready to retire our now sold out Flower Power pattern, we asked our Facebook fans to choose our next pattern based on a few concept drawings. We had an excellent response and the results are in! Check out our latest pattern, Summer Floral-

The outlet is located next to our factory at 1006 N. Cascade Ave in Montrose, Colorado. We look forward to seeing our locals and those traveling through Colorado on August 13th!
