The UNISEX BAABUK BOOT: our new Kickstarter campaign

The UNISEX BAABUK BOOT: our new Kickstarter campaign // March 14, 2017


For the past two years, Dan has been working on a very unique project: a boot made of wool. A boot? Yes! But not just any boot, a boot made of a single piece like the Baabuk slippers.

This new product combines the felting expertise of the Nepalese people we work with since the beginning of our entrepreneurial adventure and the know-how in shoe making of our Portuguese collaborators.

But what makes these winter boots so special? They will keep your toes extremely warm even if it is -20*C! It’s wool, are made of natural wool fibbers, and are 100% Swiss design.

We have been working on various prototypes during two years, always improving details, such as the sole, trying out various leather reinforcements, or coming up with funny patterns. After long conversations and post-it reunions, we are proud to announce that our UNISEX WOOL BOOT is live on Kickstarter!

 

But this project could not have come to life without the great help of an amazing team!

 

We would like to thank our backers from our previous Kickstarter campaigns, as well as our current backers and friends!

Woooooolly greetings!

 The Baabuk Team

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).
