HOW DO YOU DEFINE WHAT YOU DO?

We make jewelry that are unique pieces. We started our silver and gold necklaces last summer!

HOW DID FLOKY START?

We used to make bracelets as gifts for our friends. Then we thought why not turn it into a brand and that’s how Floky was born. 

MOST INTERESTING THINGS THAT DEFINE WHO YOU ARE?

We are two best friends who thought, hey why not spend hours making bracelets on the side of our studies and turn it into a small business?

YOUR LUCKY CHARM IS:

SHARE SOME “WORDS TO LIVE BY” WITH US

If you want to start something, no matter if it’s big or small, just go for it. “ Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” Samuel Beckett said it better ;-)

Sizing Chart

 


To find your perfect size, please use our Size Finder page.

This is the BAABUK sizing chart for our sneaker/urban wooler collection

Choosing the right shoes online can be difficult, in addition to regular sizing, we offer additional measurements in the chart below so that you can measure your foot to get the perfect fit.

Note that our shoes are made of wool. Wool is a stretchable material that will adapt itself to your foot. I general we recommend that if you have a larger feet or if you are in between two sizes  to take the size above (e.g EU 42 1/2 -> 43).

In order to choose your perfect pair just measure the length and girth of your feet.

To measure the length you can put your feet on a with page of paper and draw the line in front and at the back of your feet (the highest point at the front and at the back). The length can vary between 1 and 2 mm. To measure the girth you will circle your feet at the ball part. Check this link how to measure the ball girth.

If your feet is large we suggest that you choose the size above that is matching to the girth given in our chart.

The pictures below will help you with these measurements :

Please not that if the size you choose doesn't fit you perfectly you can exchange your shoes.

Slipper Sizing:

The slipper are hand-felted in one piece without any stitching. The advantage of these kind of slippers is that with the time, your feel will continue to felt the slippers and they will take the shape of your feet.

We have cut the opening of the shoes a little bit tighter. For the kids and female sizes we have cut a litle 'V' cut to make it easier to entre the shoe. In case you feel its still too tight, just cut with a scisor the 'V' a little bit bigger. That is only possible with hand-felted wool slippers.

Converting US/EU Sizes? Use our Size Finder page.

Conditions : Please contact us if you want to exchange the shoes. Once we have validate your request you can ship us the unused shoe (on your charges). We will ship you back a new pair (on our charges).
