Why the Red Frog Sno Boot?

The problem is there are two kinds of winter boots. Those that are warm, and those that are beautiful. Until now it was a ‘never the twain shall meet’ situation. We're here to offer a solution, The Sno Boot, the warmest winter boot, the most stylish winter boot you'll ever need.

Never again will someone ask where you parked your skidoo, never again will you have to do the I-gotta-pee dance to keep your feet warm when it's 30 below and you're waiting to get inside a club. These boots are warm, these boots are comfy and they're made of 100% sustainable materials. Beat that.

Best Grip Possible on Ice, Snow and Tile Floors

MEXICAN SNOW (AKA DETERGENT, ADAPT WE DO)

These boots are too cool to take off and leave at the door, so we made them to have the best grip on those shiny tile floors that seem to cover every mall, office and bank the world over. Can you think of anything that grips ice and snow better than tire rubber? We can’t. Even better, they're non-scuffing  and won’t mark floors.

Felt - The warmest, most natural thing for your feet

100% Natural Merino Wool-

All our wool is Merino long fiber wool from Australia and New Zealand, imported to Mexico City where it is processed in one of the few wool factories left in this hemisphere. It's long fibers ensure that warm air is trapped inside and cold air is kept out, ensuring your feet are toasty warm in the worst of conditions.

Water be gone, I command Thee! –

Wool has a natural oil called lanolin that makes it water resistant. Our wool is sprayed with the best Spanish made water repellents (three coats no less) to make water bead up and roll away like water off a sheep’s back. It all adds up to boots that winter can’t touch. Ever see a soggy sheep? We think not.

The Process (from Field to Feet)

Fieltros Finos from the BIg Machines
Fieltros Finos from the BIg Machines

We use only the finest merino wool, blended, unbleached and 100% natural. Taken from more than willing sheep in Australia and shipped all the way to Mexico where it is cleaned and carded, brushed and pressed into high density felt that traps air between the fibres (trapped air is the best insulator).

It's not the cold air coming in, it's the warm air rushing out....

That's what makes your feet cold, they try to heat up the ground beneath them and it draws the warmth straight out the bottom of your boots, If you use leather or plastic soles it won't matter what's above them, the cold air rushes out the bottom, like water from a faucet.

Risks and challenges

In the past year we've built the world's smallest factory with crowd sourcing funds that we've raised. We've made it a safer, friendlier place to create beautiful things that use materials which would otherwise end up being wasted. The greatest risk is not growing. The bigger our community the more change we can make.
