Ripple sole shoes are any shoes, boots or sandals that have a ripple sole. The ripple sole is characterised by its lines of triangular jagged rubber, or whatever that particular sole is made of, running horizontally along the sole of the shoe. Ripple soles are good for gripping on slippery surfaces and are very durable. They are often used by the army or on sturdy work boots because they provide superior grip on surfaces. 
They are often used in the jungle or muddy places as well because the design of the sole means that it is very difficult for mud to get lodged in the dents of the sole. This means that ripple sole shoes should maintain grip where other soles won’t. They last a very long time due to the thickness of the rubber required to make them. They are very chunky to aid balance and wide to aid grip as much as possible.
If you are looking to buy some ripple soles, there are many outlets on the internet, including endclothing.co.uk and if you are looking for some that are cheaper, there are quite a few pairs on eBay in varying designs, sizes and colours, including black, beige and tan. You are most likely to find ripple soles on boots and shoes because they are too chunky for slighter footwear.
The ripple sole was invented by Nathan Hack in 1955. Investors in the sole include Reebok and Columbia trading company, both huge players in the shoe and boot retail industry. If you type "ripple sole” in to Google you can see pictures of ripple soled shoes. They are quite hard to describe without looking at a picture of them.

I have no idea but it sounds intriguing! Ripple shoes.... hmmm. reminds me of something funky like outdoor footwear or shoes with some sort of weird groove pattern for trekking. Could I be right?

Good day. Skechers shoes are known for their memory foam technology. When you read skechers reviews you will know that this material is pressure and temperature sensitive and allows it to mold to the shape of the foot, providing increased shoe comfort. The foam also provides extra cushioning and makes the shoe very comfortable. Thanks to the practicality of the shoes, it will be easy to run and train in it.
