If you haven’t yet heard of Baabuk, it’s a company that makes wool footwear. You can find a variety of models, from slippers to the awesome Wool Sneakers. But first, why wool? This is a natural renewable material that is extremely comfortable, breathable and will provide you a lot of comfort.
Wool has many more features. It reduces body odor which is especially useful for footwear, it’s flexible to breakage, water repellent, slow to burn and very easy to clean. The shoes are made in Portugal and every piece is handcrafted.
The upper is made from 100% pure, natural wool that’s hand-felted. There are no seams and no stitches so you can wear them without socks and you’ll feel very comfortable. As for the lining, it uses merino wool that comes with moisture-wicking properties. With having a casual street style, you can pair them with all sorts of outfits.
It’s very easy to get the Wool Sneakers on. The thermoplastic rubber sole is durable and helpful for wearing these sneakers on different surfaces. Also, since wool regulates heat, they will keep you warm during winter and cool during summer.
In order to clean them, first make sure to vacuum the dirt and dust from them. Then, you can put them in the washing machine but pay attention to use the wool program at a maximum temperature of 86° F. Once they are washed, put them on in order to shape them according to your foot and then just leave them to dry completely.
