VOYLOK boots are crafted from felted wool in a remarkably sustainable, renewable process. The boots are sculpted from raw wool rather than sewn and use no chemicals, dyes, bleach, or glue – just wool and hot water. The only by-products are wool scraps and muddy water, which can go straight into the garden. Plus, wool felt is naturally anti-bacterial and hygroscopic, so feet remain dry and odor-free.
The boots are a clever indoor/outdoor solution, combining two shoes in one. Take the removable waterproof overshoe off, and you have a delightfully warm and comfortable pair of indoor slippers. With VOYLOKs, less is truly more: no chemicals, fewer manufacturing steps, zero waste, less weight (half the weight of rubber boots), and a smaller shoe-rack due to VOYLOKs versatility. These contemporary shoes are a ‘high concept, low tech’ solution to today’s environmental, health, and over-consumption issues.
