Sasawashi Wool Room Boots
$ 82.00 USD
The room shoe gets a reboot with this cozy take on a Japanese classic from Sasawashi. Keep your feet warm and comfortable around the house in the cold winter months with a pair of Sasawashi Room Boots, which feature a plush wool surface layer and washi fabric lining that's pill-free and lightweight. The weave of these boots also allows them to effortlessly absorb moisture and odors from the skin, thanks to the addition of antibacterial Kumazasa fibers, so you'll stay fresh after a bath or shower.
Room Shoe Sizing Tips: Room shoes are designed for maximum comfort and are very forgiving when it comes to sizing, but it is important that your foot is not larger than the footbed. To ensure a proper fit, put on the type of socks you plan to wear with your room shoes and measure the length of your foot (in centimeters) while standing. Compare this measurement with the Japanese sizing in the chart below - which is also measured in centimeters - to determine the appropriate size. If you fall between sizes, round up, and if you have particularly wide feet, consider moving up one size. For more tips, check out our Rikumo Journal post on achieving a perfect fit.
Sasawashi was founded as a reaction to the wastefulness and ephemeral lifespan of the textile industry. Made from absorbent washi paper threads infused with antibacterial kumazasa plant fibers, this innovative fabric offers natural deodorizing properties that prevent mildew growth and fiber deterioration. From Japanese-style room shoes to personal scrub towels, every piece in the Sasawashi collection stays true to the brand's fundamental values: comfort, longevity, and simplicity.
