You’re standing in your bedroom, staring down at your overstuffed carry-on and deluding yourself with the idea that maybe, if you just smush everything down a bit harder, you’ll be able to pack that second pair of shoes and avoid spending your entire vacation in ugly airplane sneakers. Suddenly your phone buzzes; your Uber has arrived, and you realize in a moment of cold, sweaty clarity that you’re too late. The shoes won’t fit. Airplane sneakers it is.
At least, that would have been the case prior to the launch of the footwear brand Rakoh. After finding himself in precisely this predicament one too many times, Rakoh’s founder, Raphael Kohlberg, took it upon himself to make a shoe that was comfortable enough to walk around in all day and stylish enough to wear out all night; a shoe that works hard and wears easy. Enter the All Day Chelsea Boot: a handsome, handmade Chelsea boot cut and sewn in Italy from premium Italian leather, combined with lightweight technical materials for flexibility, comfort and traction. This is the go-anywhere, do-anything shoe that you’ve been waiting for — a shoe for where you’re going, and for wearing while you go. All you have to do is pick a color.
