With a focus on style and ergonomic design, Tsubo began selling their shoes in 1997. Comfort is one of the top priorities of each design, and Tsubo answers this problem with shock absorbing bubbles placed at the pressure points of your foot. These shock absorbers are reinforced with layers of foam for cushioning and steel shanks for stability. This construction design gives your foot the support and flexibility it needs to preserve your natural foot movement. Combined with the quality leather uppers and textile linings, you can never go wrong with Tsubo.
