About

Felts Health Shoes are certified for sensitive skin. From the wool to the dyes and all to way from manufacturing to delivery. Felts Health Shoes has been working together with the Allergy, Skin & Asthma Federation to make such a product available. We are very proud with the endorsement as we are the only one in our category to reach the pinnacle in skin friendliness. 

What are Felts Shoes?

On average we spend more than 10 hours every day putting some kind of pressure on our feet and most of the time is actually spent at home. One thing that we continuously neglect is how important the care of our feet is. 

You wear business footwear at work and fancy footwear at events, don’t you think when you are indoors your feet deserve the softest, most breathable slippers in the world? At Felts Health Shoes that’s what we created for you and they are here now. 

Felts shoes are organic and made with 100% natural materials. If your feet perspire, no problem! We Paired Merino wool with nettle fabric to create the most luxurious, form-fitting shoes that will keep you dry and comfortable all year long

What is Merino Wool?

Merino wool is one of Mother Nature’s most amazing fibres. Not only is it soft and comfortable, but it’s also breathable. It naturally resists odour causing bacteria and regulates temperature to help you stay cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not. 


 You Gave Your Feedback and We Listened  

Why you don't have insoles in your otherwise machine washable shoes? 

- Now we do and they are done with the same luxurious 19-micron wide Merino-wool. Walking on the new Felts is literally like walking on clouds.

Can you make the outsole with any other material and have them still breath the same?

-  To have the shoes breath as they do, we have to use nature's handmade materials. To nail our in-house shoe, we doupled the outsoles nettle fabric and sticthed it in place.  

Can you wear medical insoles in these?

- Our shoe moulds were changed to have this done & and now the shoe also fits better for our North American customers.

Risks and challenges

We are aware that no project comes without challenges. We have tried to take everything into consideration and it is our second time, but still, there are circumstances that we cannot fully control, if something unexpected happens, we will communicate with you. In the UK we have Brexit happening and hence our added shipping fees. I am working my heart out for you to get your Felts as soon as possible and establish Felts for all. Be happy!
Kind regards

Long-lasting design

We are so proud of Felts.
Felted wool shoes are known throughout the ages and the Felts brand will be also. In my second generation shoes, I doubled the outsole layer of the nettle fabric and stitched it so that if a break happens with time it won't spread.
The Merino wool is felted to last and I have used a lot of wool in my shoes to make them really soft, breathable and stylish as they are. We recommend washing Felts once every second month to keep them in mint condition.

Reusability and recyclability

100 % Natural & Biodegradable. When you wish to purchase a new pair, the old one can be used for birds nesting material.

Sustainable materials

Our dyes are chosen to pass every test and standard in every country in the world. We take pride in our skin-friendly shoes. Felts use New Zealand's Merino wool to support their animal rights up front Merino wool industry. Our nettle is collected from the hillside of Nepal where it grows free.

Environmentally friendly factories

At Felts, we concentrate on operating using fair trade principle and really pleased with how the principals are implemented by our chosen manufacturer since their opening in 2014 https://healthshoes.co.uk/10-principles-of-fair-trade/

Sustainable fulfillment and distribution

The operation is powered by myself, it is a well organized and tested system using the Royal Mail and Nepalese shipping agency and we hope to fulfil the order with only two shipments from Nepal. We use 100% Nepali cotton shoe bags, and our shoeboxes are recycled and come two miles from our office in London.

Something else

Customer Feedback

Absolutely love the Felts, I wear them every day and have had no problems.

I'm diabetic and the one thing most diabetics are aware of is the number of us who have feet amputated due to complications of diabetes. So, I'm always buying different shoes to try out. These are perfect. When I first tried on the Felts, I could not believe how soft and comfy they were (it blew me away honest) and a perfect fit. So yes, if you can find my size, I will buy 1 or even 2 pairs if you have them. Colour is not so important. Thanks for your hard work and look forward to the next project shoes. The way you have set up a project is so special, plus how comfy, warm and cool, good wearing, good looking Felts are. I'm also impressed with your dedication to the updates and comments.
