Riomar Deck Drivers | RY Outfitters Spotlight

Riomar makes waterproof leather shoes with interchangeable bearings designed for anyone looking to go from the beach to the boardroom without missing a beat. The aesthetic is dressy but the functionality is big. For anyone who gets out on the water at the crack of dawn just before work, these are going to be your bread and butter.

Riomar’s Deck Driver shoes are a crossover of the functionality of water shoes and the style of boat shoes. The Deck Driver performs equally well on or off the water. Form-fitting and flexible, the Deck Driver was made from the sole up for superior all-around performance. Their Soles are Nonskid and Non-marking so they’re great for walking around on docks, boats, and wet surfaces of all kinds plus, you have the added benefit of not having to worry about scuffing up your boat.

Obviously, when things get soggy they can get a little ripe. Luckily that’s not the case with Riomar’s shoes because their inner lining is Odor-proof and Antimicrobial, but, most importantly, comfortable. Their leather Insoles are surprisingly comfortable when dry or wet.

What really sets Riomar’s shoes apart is their patented interchangeable bearing design. While with most shoes, what you see is what you get, Riomar added a wide variety of bearings to choose from to personalize your look. Think of it kind of like a tie for your shoes. This shoe comes dressed with the Riomar Burgee Bearing. But, you can pick up a bunch of others. These hand-tied bearings add a lot of character to the shoes and make it a little easier to

If you’re looking for an incredible pair of water shoes that are great for multiple occasions then Riomar’s Deck Drives could be a great option to check out. After all, functional fashion is a huge time saver!

#263 PNW Bushcraft // Heather Saulsbury – Creating Tools To Enjoy The Outdoors & Making Room For Women in the Wilderness

Matt sits down with PNW Bushcraft co-founder Heather Saulsbury. PNW Bushcraft makes outdoor gear specifically for bushcraft but, even bigger than that, they give their customers the tools to have the most fun in the outdoors.

Heather built PNW Bushcraft with her co-founder and husband out of a hobby and passion that grew like wildfire after she began to make gear and sell it on Etsy (it sounds like a simple progression but, when I say they attacked this thing and won, that’s a huge understatement). As the dynamic duo dug deeper into the industry they slowly expanded their product line, doing countless R & D testing, and even began to host meetups, demonstrations, and workshops. One of the bigger things Heather’s been trying to tackle is to open up the outdoors to women and encourage them to learn new skills, and just become comfortable when roughing it. The Outdoor Industry has been marketed as a boys club but, the barriers that exist aren’t solid and Heather wants to break them down once and for all for women and really anyone who wants to get outside and have some fun but, might not know where to start. You don’t need to be perfect or do things flawlessly, you just need to be safe and have fun, and that’s exactly the message Heather wants to promote!

In this episode of Built On Passion Heather Saulsbury walks us through how PNW Bushcraft got started and the steps to grow to where they are now, how she’s been building and nurturing a wave of wild women getting into the outdoors, and her how and why behind starting PNW Bushcraft.
