My Mama Style // Baabuk Shoes

I have never really been a trainers kinda girl.  I wear boots from October-ish to April-ish and then swap into sandals and there is no inbetween.  Well there wasn't until recently.  The people at Baabuk got in touch to tell me about their wool shoes and I fell in love with a pair of blue and yellow sneakers (my favourite colour combo!).

What really fascinated me though, was the materials.  The couple who started the company, Dan and Galina took inspiration from the Russian's who use wool to keep warm and developed a range of cosy slippers that had no seams, were completely breathable and naturally antibacterial.  From these slippers came the idea to make sneakers and the more I read about them, the more sense they make!

Wool is breathable, naturally antibacterial, naturally water repellent and renewable amongst many other great qualities.  This means that these shoes adapt, keeping your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer.  All my other shoes are so season specific, but here is a pair that can be worn whatever the weather.  Because wool is antibacterial it means I don't even need to wear socks with the shoes (a huge bonus in this weather) and they get comfier every time I wear them as the wool adjusts and adapts to your feet.

The material is really soft with no seams as it is felted as one piece and the shoes are machine washable (there are instructions on the website).  I love how they are ethically produced and made and I love the style which is fun and colourful and so easy to wear.  I have worn these shoes everywhere recently and they seem really versatile. There are two varieties of shoe like this, the sneaker and the urban wooler and they come in a variety of colours to suit men and women.

I would love to try their boots in the future and am considering purchasing some for the winter as they look amazingly comfortable and warm!  They do a range of slippers for adults and children too on the Baabuk website.

The shoes were sent to me by Baabak for the purpose of this review but all thoughts and opinions are completely my own.
