Merino wool & Nettle fabric traps air, giving a fantastic insulation against the cold whilst regulating temperature; you will never be too hot nor too cold with our shoes. If your feet perspire, moisture is absorbed and wicked towards outside of the shoe. Stay dry and comfortable all year long with Felts. WWW.HEALTHSHOES.CO.UK

Hi friends, my name is Antti. I design luxurious garments from the finest of raw materials in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal. This Merino shoe project came from necessity. My young sister’s feet were suffering from skin issues. I wanted to help her. Using knowledge of the health benefits of wools and different fabrics, I knew that in creating a shoe to assist the skin, I had to use Merino wool for its unmatched breathability and its highly medicinal ¨wool oil¨ Lanolin. Similarly, I wanted nettle fabric to be the chosen sole that it is a ¨hollow fibre¨ and shares the same breathing properties with Merino wool. After seeing how this idea helped my sister's skin to heal. I understood that I had a product which had a significant health benefit. Six months into the project, we have made our shoe in many sizes and are starting medical clinical tests. Now we hope to bring Felts to you with crowdfunding. I am doing this with most talented artisans in Nepal. We are taking every step to be Fair Trade certified.
Welcome to Felts family.
