UPDATE 6/12: Reposting as the last day to back this Kickstarter is Thursday June 13th

Occasionally I see some interesting travel related products being crowd funded that I think you guys might be interested in.  We’ve talked about the Tropic travel shoe, the Cleansebot bacteria killing robot, and the Hypercube charger, among others. Here’s a few of the travel related crowd funded projects that I’ve seen.

Travel related kickstarters:

Today I wanted to talk a bit about the second version of the Tropic Travel shoe – the Tropicfeel Ultimate travel shoe. This is a second version of the wildly successful Tropic travel shoe which was on Kickstarter about a year or so ago.

All Kickstarter / Indiegogo links in this post may pay me a commission if you boost the project through my link.

Tropicfeel travel shoe features

The Tropicfeel Canyon shoe bills itself as “the all-terrain sneaker with 4-in-1 versatility: providing the benefits of aqua shoes, the comfort of sport shoes, the technical outsole materials of hiking shoes, and the styling of your favourite daily pieces.”

Here are a few pictures of the Tropicfeel travel shoe
