ABE Canvas Home Shoes
$ 62.00 USD
A trusty pair of slippers are an easy way to slip into relaxation without dragging the outside elements into your home. This pair, from one of Japan’s leading slipper makers, checks all of the boxes with its good looks, functionality, and comfort. Its shell is made from “No. 8” duck canvas, a material often found in sneakers thanks to its excellent strength, breathability, and ease of cleaning. Taking inspiration from the traditional slippers of Morocco, its 2-way “babouche” heel allows you to wear it both down, like a slipper, or up, like a shoe when you’re on the move. Underfoot, a soft lightly-padded suede-like sole offers subtle traction and protects floors from scuffs and scratches.
