Do you suffer from cold feet in the winter? Me too it’s awful as they start hurting when they get too cold. Well, you needn’t worry about that anymore with Pomobuk eco-friendly slippers. They were launched just last month and are proving a huge hit.
A little about POMOBUK
When the world’s foremost manufacturer of freeride and ski mountaineering skins meets innovative start-up redefining felted wool shoes an extraordinary collaboration was born: A limited series of up-cycled slippers that celebrate the sustainable commitment of these two Swiss brands, POMOCA and BAABUK.
Together they upcycled the cuttings into durable and versatile bottoms for a limited series slippers that embody their mission. Of making a positive impact and delivering the most comfortable wool footwear.
The slip-and-glide bottoms are great for sliding across wood floors to fall into your lover’s arms while the felted wool uppers are perfect for slipping into something more comfortable.
Each sole is randomly crafted from Pomoca’s seven shades of skins so you’re in for a colourful surprise when you open the box. Don’t worry, no matter what style you get you’ll be going green with these unique and comfortable, eco-friendly slippers.
Available in sizes EU 34 – 48
I received a pair of Pomobuk slippers and obviously, I didn’t know what colour soles I would be getting as they are all different when sent. Mine had yellow soles. I tried them on straight away and they are comfortable.
I did find they were a bit on the loose side, like both wider than regular slippers. The soles are strange as if you drag your feet towards you there is some resistance like grip on the carpet. But sliding them forward, they glide smoothly, like wet feet on a slippery floor.
They did keep my feet extremely warm though. I couldn’t wear them without socks as I do not like the feel of the fabric of the slippers. They are a wool felt fabric but they are okay with socks as I cannot feel them on my skin.
I do really like the slippers, the fact that they are eco-friendly is a huge positive. They do exactly what they are supposed to do. They are soft on the soles of your feet because there is an insole in them. There is only one colour to the slipper right now though and that is a light grey. I would like to see more variety in the colours available. I do like the surprise of what colour sole you are getting. It makes the slippers a surprise to you too even if you have bought them for yourself.
A perfect gift for anyone who gets really cold feet, or those who just need a new pair of slippers.
BAABUK have a wide range of boots, shoes and slippers and now their first eco-friendly Pomobuk slippers. There is something for everyone, men, women and kids too.
