Whether it be supple genuine leather, sturdy wool felt or soft boiled wool - all of our products are made of natural materials. Therefore, they are breathable and have a cooling effect in summer, whilst perfectly protecting against cold in winter. On top of that, slippers without synthetics are very long-lasting and gentle to the skin.
All of our brands are the very best in what they are doing: German manufacturer Haflinger specializes in open and closed-heel slippers made of natural, boiled wool. Swedish producer Shepherd on the other hand has unparalleled expertise in processing natural grown lambskin. German producer Berkemann remains state of the art in the production of high-quality leather sandals.
Exile the images of antiquated slippers in unfashionable shades and shapes from your memory: our house shoes not only actively relieve your feet’s muscles and pamper them with cuddly coziness, but also meet the highest expectations in terms of design. All our producers have tens of years in experience creating handcrafted quality models. That is why they are able to put their focus on contemporary designs without neglecting functionality and comfort.
As natural materials, both felt and boiled wool offer much higher thermal capacity than uppers mixed with artificial fibers. When it comes to protection against very cold grounds, you will be perfectly prepared thanks to the combination of thick footbeds made of cork or foam with our outsoles made of leather, rubber or latex coated felt.
Our brands know exactly which features and shapes have been able to satisfy our customer’s needs over the last 30 years. That is why all of our products are shaped in a way not to constrict your feet - but they will never sit too loose either. In terms of sure-footedness, our profiled rubber soles and latex coated felt soles offer the necessary safety on more slippery floorings as well.
Many of our models can not only be worn inside the house, but allow for short trips out the front door as well, notably all the models from Haflinger’s 'Grizzly' series. That is due to their waterproof rubber soles directly located under the inch-thick cork footbeds. Therefore, you can engage in gardening work or prepare your BBQ on the terrace just like that - even if a summer shower has left its mark on the face of the earth during the night.
Our anatomically aligned footbeds actively relieve your feet, preventing fatigue even after prolonged wear. There are basically two types of footbeds with the first being made of very soft foam. Those are especially pleasant if you suffer from aching feet or just love the feeling of gently cushioned steps. Footbeds made of cork on the other hand offer highest arch support, since they adapt further and further to your feet in the course of wearing.
If you rely on your own orthopaedic insoles instead, you don’t have to miss out on soothing thermal isolation and a cozy feeling either - for we carry a variety of models with removable footbeds. Those can be easily replaced with your own inlays by hand in a matter of seconds.
Thanks to their very solid rubber soles, Haflinger’s 'Grizzly' and 'Blizzard' series can be worn both inside your home and outdoors. Their water-resistant outsoles have a slip-inhibitory tread pattern and are abrasion-free to stand by your side for a long time.
Haflinger is not only known for snug oases of warmth made for winter, but also for summery sandals and mules made of organic genuine leather. The term organic in this context means that the leather was tanned purely vegetable, that is without the addition of chemicals. This not only speaks in favor of Haflinger's idea of sustainability, but also makes the material particularly supple, skin-friendly and breathable.
