Baabuk started as a husband and wife team who came up with the idea to create woolly shoes inspired by her grandpa’s Russian Valenki felt boots. Traditional Valenki shoes are made of sheep’s wool and have been known to protect people from weather conditions as severe as the Siberian cold. Wool also adds benefits like comfort, versatility, stain resistance, moisture absorption and biodegradability. Baabuk has spent years perfecting their stitchless, seamless one-piece felted construction shoes, and the end result are these Urban Wooler Sneakers. Available in some cool contrasting color options, each pair is a perfect alternative to the Vans, Chucks and Adidas options you’ve been wearing all Summer. Best of all, thanks to the materials and construction, they’ll keep your feet dry, warm and clean–without sacrificing style.
