Our best shoe yet

Cala was Inspired by the city where Tropicfeel was born, Barcelona. Our concept has been made possible thanks to the feedback from travelers all over the world, and of course the incredible effort made by the Tropicfeel team. We are now more ready than ever to deliver our best shoes yet.

Marta Hutesà

Design Manager


“In fact, we've been thinking about this model ever since Tropicfeel started, even before we released our first shoe. There has been a lot of back and forth with this, and finally we’ve now got the best. We’ve got that kind of product that makes you feel something very special. You don't want to give up that feeling. I’m very very proud of this style.”

Patented treatments and tested materials

Upside Down 3D mesh , in collaboration with Ariaprene

Our newly designed material allows for higher Abrasion Resistance and better breathability. The outer surface has a closed structure compared with the inner surface. This makes the fabric more absorbent on the outside. As a result, the inner surface, where your foot is touching, absorbs less water and stays closer to your foot.

Lava XL technology

Lava XL targets and defeats bad odors also self re-generates, meaning your shoes stay fresher, for longer, no matter what you’re doing.

Abrasion Test

We performed the rigorous Martindale test during the creation of Cala. In this test, the shoe is scratched several times to test the abrasion. Usually, this test stops at the 25k mark, with Cala, it withstood 102,400 cycles of the test.

Updates

#5 Update: Production has FINISHED!

ALL DONE! ✅

Well, it’s the moment we have all been waiting for! On Friday The 26th of June, production of Cala officially finished!

It feels like only a couple of days ago we launched the crowdfunding campaign, and here we are! Thank you to everyone who has supported Cala so far, we are so excited for you to receive your orders!


Check out our Q&A below with our awesome production manager Marta! 

Q&A with Marta Iglesias

Production Manager


Hey Marta! When was your first day at tropicfeel?

My first day was 11th of June 2019!

What part of making Cala took the longest?

The slipper feature with the foldable heel! We needed to test several trials with different prototypes to be able to have the heel fold in a way that was comfortable and easy.

Were there any issues that came up when producing the Cala shoes?

As the demand was huge, we made a first order during the early days of the campaign. Then we realized we needed to place another bigger order, as there were even more orders than expected. Thanks to our great partners, we were able to add a second quantity to the production with the same delivery date as the first order!

What was the most popular color that we produced?

The 3 colors sold have been really equal, the difference is around 500 more or less, but the exact order is: Chip Grey, Night Blue and Chocolate Red.

And finally, what is your favorite color of Cala?

I'm in love with the Chocolate Red. But I also think the color of the outsole of Chip Grey is great! I cannot wait to add more colors in future!


Thanks everyone, stay tuned for the next update!

#4 Update: Production is now underway!

It's show time! 💚

Great news! We have now received all the materials for creating your new Cala shoes, and we are happy to report that production is now underway.

The fabrics have been cut and we are now beginning to stitch everything together. It won’t be long until they will be arriving at your door which is super exciting!


Shooting locations 🌍

We had a great time shooting Cala before the crowdfunding went live. We were in three different countries to make sure we had the perfect shots, check out where we visited!

Indonesia 🇮🇩

The dramatic cliffs, tremendous forests, and the bluest waters made Indonesia an ideal shooting location.


Costa Rica 🇨🇷

The long sandy beaches of Costa Rica were a great place to show off the water friendly features of Cala.


Spain 🇪🇸

And of course, the city where Cala was inspired, and where tropicfeel began, Barcelona!


Thanks everyone, stay tuned for the next update!

#3 Update: Crowdfunding stage has now closed!

Let's rock and roll! 🚀

Cala is now sitting at an incredible 8154 backers! Our Super Early Adopters stage has now finished, meaning the 30% discount is no longer available, and has been replaced with a 20% discount.

Huge thank you to all of our Super Early Adopters, you are now all Tropiclusters for life, and it's awesome to have you by our side on this amazing journey. Without your trust, support, and belief, we would not be able to turn our visions, our dreams, into realities, and for this, we will forever be thankful 💚


Product news

Things are moving very quickly, and by the end of this week all of the materials for your Cala will have finished the cutting stage ✂️ ready to be manufactured into shoes which is SUPER exciting, as this brings us one step closer to getting your new shoes ready! 💚

#2 Update: It's all about teamwork

The team behind Cala 💚

We are very proud seeing the fantastic start the Cala crowdfunding campaign has had so far! This brand new style and its successful launch would not have been possible without our incredibly talented team.

Today we want to share with you some personal thoughts from two people who were super important in the creation and launch of Cala, Marta, our product designer, and Bargu, our creative director.

Marta Hutesà

Design Manager

What did you enjoy the most about creating Cala?
It's difficult to explain in just one detail, but I’m really in love with the outsole design, and how it explains something about us!

What was the biggest challenge?
The folding heel! The balance between flexibility, strength, comfortability, and looking good is not easy as seems.

What is your favorite color of Cala?
I can’t decide, I like all of them, but I’m wishing to brighten it up more next season!

Guillermo Barguñó

Creative Director

When did you first realize that creativity was your calling?
I think when I was around 14 and I started filming sports with a GoPro camera, that got me hooked and since then it just snowballed from hobby to passion to profession.

What was your favorite part of creating the Cala content?
My favorite part was to fulfil the creative challenge of creating content that could inspire others while we are living in this global crisis. I think the polaroid transitions were a great idea and probably my favorite creative asset for the brand in a long time.

What is your favorite color of Cala?
Chocolate red!


Product news

The factory has already received the Ariaprene shoe material and will soon begin quality control before jumping into production! 🔎Go Cala!
