SUBU Slippers : Comfort Wins
If consecutive lockdowns taught us anything, it’s how to appreciate life’s simple pleasures. We can only speak for ourselves here, but during those times we became fully-fledged homebodies, both physically and mentally. For us, the slower pace of life and quality time spent with loved ones made the experience a little lighter. Ah, and let’s not forget about the idea of loungewear 24/7. While we reckon we’re up there with the trendsetters, and wouldn’t miss an occasion to throw on a Stone Island sweatshirt and our favourite pair of Nudies, the concept of comfy clobber day-in-day-out really was bliss and only added to our contentment at home.
If like us you’re all about comfort lately, then SUBU should be on your radar. Not familiar? SUBU is the latest brand to join our lineup. The label originates from Japan with a penchant for functionality. Both form and function mix in the SUBU collection to deliver a footwear offering like no other. Winter sandals, as this label fondly refers to them, or more simply – slippers – whatever you want to call them, SUBU’s shoes are equal parts authentic as they are game-changing.
Made with a billowy, nylon ripstop upper that’s akin to your winter duvet, the classic SUBU slipper boasts an external Teflon coating which means you and your shoes are protected from the wet, so don’t worry about putting the bins out on a rainy day, these beauties have got you covered. Internally, you’ll discover a plush, velvety fabric that’s raised high so that when you step into the shoe it cushions each and every step, imagine walking on a cloud… This is as close as it gets! There’s also a four-layer cushioning system underfoot, in place to absorb shock and keep you high off the ground. And finally, a durable rubber sole hits the ground, it’s solid and sturdy enough for the outdoors but not too rugged for inside your home.
If since lockdown you’re all about the anti-uniform way of life and you just can’t shift your creature comforts, give SUBU slippers a chance to woo you, they’ll slot right into your routine at home. Browse colourways online and in-store now at Aphrodite.
