Meet Loom Waterproof Sneakers: Great for Rainy Days and Hiking

Last Updated on by Talita

Recently I went to Long Island (New York) for a walk and ended up testing a new model of sneakers I had just received. I wanted to test whether it was as comfortable as many of the sneakers nowadays, but mostly…. if it was waterproof! And yes, it passed the test. Besides it is being very cool and match everything, it is super light, comfortable, and has a quite good grip for mid-level hiking!

But what kind of sneakers would that be? I’m talking about Loom!!

The company is based in Hong Kong and is formed by designers, engineers, ergonomics specialists, scientists, and adventurers (like us ). Everyone came together to build a shoe that had all the best features of the team’s favorite shoes in an all-terrain package for the whole year….and that’s it, loom “was born”. And according to them, Loom is the most versatile eco-footwear/shoe ecological on the planet. That’s because Loom is vegan!

Most of “normal” sneakers that people eventually throw away contain non-biodegradable materials such as plastic, leather, and petroleum-based rubber. These materials can take about 25 to 80 years to decompose on their own. Because of all environmental issues and increasingly conscious consumers, brands are turning more to sustainable footwear, taking greater responsibility for the materials they use.

Loom sneakers are suitable for all activities on your travels

Loom tennis can also be a good option for those looking to travel and stay in places that accept your services as payment (volunteering), with gardening, for example. When gardening, the moist soil can end up spoiling normal footwear (if you don’t have a boot to wear), so the most appropriate thing would be to wear waterproof shoes such as Loom while you volunteer in exchange for food and accommodation. They are designed for all kinds of outdoor activities, whether on sunny days or rainy ones!

So if you want to go hiking or city strolling somewhere in the world, in addition to comfort and impermeability, its cushion also ensures that you are safe on any terrain. It can be used anywhere and  face any environment: rain, mud, snow, and melted snow. Although, for deep snow, I would go for some proper boots for winter

With it, besides avoid taking several sneakers (one for each situation) during your travels and save some space in your bag or backpack, it also allows you to do any activity with ease and save time when washing. Nobody likes to waste time washing their shoes after a trail, isn’t it?

These shoes are designed for use in the city or during outdoor activities, so their style and colors match all the looks you want during your trip, whether the most sporty and comfortable ones or even the most casual ones for excursions and museum visits.

Stinky feet during your trip? No one deserves it!

Did you ever happen to be on a plane and suddenly smell a strange odor? You want to pretend it’s not you, but imagine if someone notices you have stinky feet. It’s a very uncomfortable situation, isn’t it?

On a trip, depending on the activities you do, your feet may get hurt and the bacteria producing sweat and odor will bother you. In that case, in addition to hygiene care, I would also say that Loom sneakers would be a good traveling companion. Unlike people, it doesn’t care about your stinking feet!

Loom’s anti-odor material has antimicrobial properties that eliminate these annoying bacteria. In simpler terms, no matter how long you work, your feet won’t be stinky!

It is also made of breathable material, which absorbs and releases moisture from the air, so you never get our feet moist or sweaty again!


My Experience With Loom Waterproof Sneakers

After using Loom on this trip to Long Island, both to walk in the city and to walk on rocks on the seafront during a rainy day, I was able to test Loom sneakers on different terrains.

The moment that surprised me the most was when we were visiting a lighthouse by the sea, and decided to take a walk around it by walking through the wet rocks….in the rain! I can assure you that my foot finished pretty dry! Very different from Nikki’s foot!

And here’s a summary of my review of Loom shoes with its pros and cons:


Pros Loom Tennis Pros

  • Super light on your feet
  • Much smaller and easy to carry than a hiking boot
  • Really waterproof, not like other “waterproof” shoes
  • Good sole that grips really well to stones
  • Nifty style/can be used even to go out in the city on a rainy day so you don’t get your feet wet
  • Versatile design makes these shoes suitable for any weather
  • Odor-free and breathable material


Loom Tennis Cons

  • Doesn’t give too much support for your ankles if you are going to a stricter hike
  • The nylon in tennis might not be very resistant to twigs and rocks scratches during harder trekking.
  • Does not offer protection against heavy objects that may fall on your feet on a hike through most “serious” mountains
