The Brubaker Brothers have added another winner to their rugged MTN collection with the Cloud Stryk Gobi.
In a quest to build a less corporate more independent footwear brand, Clearweather was started by Josh and Brandon Brubaker. Brandon was a huge influence on his brother Josh as a shoe designer in the early 90’s designing some of the most iconic pro model skate shoes of the era, motivating Josh to begin drawing shoes through grade school. Many of skateboarding’s truly unique shoes have come from the minds of or have been influenced by these two. And now they’re working together on Clearweather to bring their best ideas forward without having to navigate through the corporate red tape. Their efforts have resulted in some of the illest recent footwear builds to date.
In case you didn’t know, Clearweather MTN is the brand’s specialty line of innovative products that are built for the trail ahead. Utilizing Vibram rubber with a touch of Mother nature, the MTN Collection is inspired by Clearweather’s obsession with vintage outdoor gear and the need to build products that can withstand the path to your next adventure. The Cloud Stryk is one of the most popular and longest running silhouettes that Clearweather Brand has in its portfolio and now they’ve added Vibram! This is a versatile runner that has proven to be a fan favorite over the years. This Gobi version might just be the brand’s best iteration to date. Taking inspiration from the Gobi desert in East Asia, subtle earth tones with a bright red color pop and premium materials set the Gobi up for success. Don’t sleep on your size and yes these run true to size.
