WE USE TO DO WHAT WE DO...
Red Frog, The Felt Boot Company
We are a small family of friends and we make winter boots, beautiful, warm winter boots
and now we make sandals as well
We use only 100% sustainable materials.
From our felt uppers to our Caucho Rubber soles
it's all 100% SUSTAINABLE
Hand made, hand pressed
(limited quanitities as it is all the way from Nepal and yes, it is hand made)
100% natural unbleached sheep wool felt (bleaching really sucks)
Pressed long fibre felt and that translates into really really soft boots.
Felt is probably the oldest fabric ever created by humans. To keep their feet warm as they migrated north, sheep hides were turned inside out in their sandals, that wool eventually pressed down into felt which enabled humans to spread north without freezing their toes and there was no turning back.
(Too bad for the Neanderthals, they should have had a pair of Red Frogboots.)
And double bonus, wool grows back, year after year, like leaves on a tree.
100% recycled tire rubber soles
(yup, that's our Caucho Rubber).
Caucho Rubber is absolutely the best thing to use for soles on winter boots. What better than tires to grip the ice
and it takes a little bit off that mountain of tires we've all inherited
100% reclaimed coach leather (no synthetics)
We made a deal with the big car makers to save the smaller pieces of their beautiful leather from going into landfills. It's just the right size to use our our boots.
And that's good because it's coach leather. It's waterproof, mud proof, even coffee proof (but we advise against wasting your coffee on your boots, that's just crazy)
And it is real leather. No poly-vinyl-ethyl-synthetic-whatever. No dinosaurs were dug up to make this product.
Sustainable, easy to clean, easy on the eye.
Even our boxes are 100% recycled cardboard.
