Do you find that rain boots are sometimes a pain?
Bulky. Heavy. Uncomfortable.
And too hard to match to most outfits.
If you agree, then we got the perfect shoe for you.
The Rainy Day is a lightweight hand-crafted waterproof slip-on.
Weighing only 275g (8.8oz), it’s as light and comfortable as a flip-flop, but will keep your feet protected and dry.
The Rainy Day is comfortable to wear barefoot due to its breathable pigskin leather-covered insole and soft knit lining.
This is one of the lightest waterproof shoes you’ll find.
And it comes in enough colours to match any outfit.
We think it’s perfect for camping trips, beach walks, gardening, and running quick errands around town.
Leather doesn’t hold odour and bacteria as much as synthetic materials, and just feels better on your feet.
Because machines can’t handle the intensive construction process, each pair is fully made by hand.
We start by melting raw rubber harvested from rubber trees, and then mix it with curatives and colour pigments. After mixing, it’s rolled out into sheets and the diamond pattern is pressed into the warm rubber.
Once cooled, the rubber is then cut to shape, formed by hand over a shoe last, and baked in a high temperature vulcanizing oven.
Cement is then applied to the bottom of the rubber upper and pressed onto the sole.
The lightweight soles are made from EVA plastic pellets, the same material used to make flip-flops.
Flip-flops don’t have the best surface grip, so we compress grippy rubber pods on the bottom of the outsole to help with traction and durability.
Rubber is much better at gripping wet and dry surfaces than EVA plastic, and lasts a lot longer too!
This means you get the comfort of a flip-flop, with the traction of a rubber shoe.

Fun and classic, the newest delivery from UCHUU is designed and priced to have on point for the spring season. Prices from $175 and sized S-XXL, designed in Canada. Modern art in clothing is a key this season with classic contrast of black and white play. Straight black hems with white finishes or a black flirty applique on a crisp white blouse are easy examples of modern art in fashion. Be artistic with your look this spring with sophistication and style from UCHUU.
Modern art includes artistic work produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the styles and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency away from the narrative, which was characteristic for the traditional arts, toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art. More recent artistic production is often called contemporary art or postmodern art.
Model and artist Sasha Pivovarova paints portraits of women for the label's seasonal ad.
