When you go into the office, you’re most likely wearing dress shoes, or at the least shoes. But now that the vast majority of us are working from home thanks to all the pandemic restrictions, putting shoes on seems a bit much—after all, when was the last time your Zoom meeting involved seeing what’s on your feet? But that doesn’t mean you don’t want something on your feet, especially with colder weather on the horizon.
Keeping your feet warm and comfortable will in turn keep you comfortable. Most likely, then, that means slipping on a pair of slippers. Greats has just the slippers you need. Dubbed The Foster, the slippers are as comfy and cozy as you could ever wish, and they’re environmentally friendly as well.
Greats is making The Foster Slippers available in two colourways: an olive drab paired with orange titled “Cargo” and an all-black version called “Nero.” The slippers are made of a quilted nylon upper that is made from recycled fishing nets and carpets—the same material used in puffer jackets. Under the upper is the mesh lining, which again is made from recycled materials, this time recycled plastic bottles. These materials are combined with a cushioned footbed wrapped in locally sourced, soft leather.
The outsole is made of 100 per cent natural rubber, making these slippers perfect for indoors and durable enough to go outside should the situation demand. The result is a stylish set of slippers that you would be proud to show off in that Zoom meeting, and one that you can feel good about because of its impact on the environment. While your dress shoes are collecting dust in the closet, you can walk around in comfort and style with the cozy The Foster slippers from Greats.
