Do you live in your slippers from October to April, or maybe even longer? Taking off your shoes and sinking into comfortable wool slippers is a ritual which can mark the end of a busy work day. When you put your slippers on, you know it’s time to relax.
I recently discovered an amazing new brand of comfortable wool slippers called Twinnits. These ridiculously comfortable house shoes were designed by a pair of young podiatrists. As the name Twinnits suggests, Claudia and Laura are twins. They studied podiatry together, and decided to start developing their brand of slippers whilst still at university. They have managed to create comfortable slippers which support your feet, and help you to avoid foot and back pain.
I’ve been trying out a pair of Twinnits’ comfortable wool slippers for over a month. As well as keeping out the draughts from my 90 year old house, they’re exceedingly comfortable.
You can tell that the footbed was designed by podiatrists when you wear Twinnits slippers. It feels cushioned but supportive like a memory foam mattress. If you have orthotics from your chiropodist, you can easily remove the footbeds and insert your orthotics instead. You could also remove the footbeds and give them an airing from time to time. This would be particularly beneficial if you choose the closed-in boot style.
The wool felt uppers and footbed cover make sure your feet are comfortably warm, but not sweaty. This natural material has excellent properties of moisture absorption, insulation, and stain repellence.
The soles are made from textured leather, which means you won’t slip on hard floors. They’re also soft enough that they won’t mark your floors like rubber soles can. The breathable wool means you can wear them in winter or summer, with bare feet or socks.
Do you love supporting smaller brands rather than large corporates? Head over to Twinnits’ Kickstarter campaign now. You can support the brand in a small way or invest more, and be paid back in fabulous comfortable wool slippers!
I opted for the toned-down Scandi feel of the Cloud colourway. You can check out some of the other beautiful colour options available below.
