Commute in Functional Style with Chrome

If you’ve ever lived in a bustling metropolitan area like Los Angeles or New York, you know that long commutes are the norm and public transportation is gold. It’s much easier to take a bus or train downtown and walk a few extra blocks to the office than it is to fight highway traffic and waste gas. But power heels, business footwear and briefcases aren’t ideal for this sort of weekly travel. You need a sturdy bag to carry your necessities (like those stylish office shoes) and durable yet comfortable footwear to get you there. Chrome products have you covered for both.

Chrome messenger bags are made for your commute. Originally big on the urban cycling scene, these travel bags gained huge popularity for their well-sewn, well-made designs. Whether you’re into a minimalistic pack or a larger, high-functioning bag, Chrome ensures all styles have the same features. Waterproof fabrics, quick-release shoulder straps and functional pockets are in every bag, with some having built-in bottle openers and military grade liners added on.

A highly functional, ultra-durable design is put into Chrome’s footwear too. Antimicrobial insoles and skid resistant rubber bottoms are standard, making each shoe tough enough for all sorts of weather. Cool materials like fire hose canvas, fiberglass and reflective coating are used in their shoe construction, and some footwear is even made completely by hand. This attention to detail proves Chrome is dedicated to creating top-quality goods for city commutes, travel-heavy weekends and any unexpected event in between. Check out some of their unique craftsmanship and urban styles below.
