Mens Cable Knitted Slipper Boots, handmade in Peru
Mens Cable Knit Slipper Boots lined with Merino Fleece - why let the women have all the fun? After the success of our Slipper Boots for Women there was quite a demand for a cosy variation for men. These hand built slippers are lined to the toes in merino fleece for comfort. They have suede soles and a chunky cable knit exterior. A great, luxurious gift idea for the man who has everything.

The Alpaca fur used in Samantha Holmes’ products is ethically sourced. The Alpacas from which the skins are removed are not killed for their fur.
There is a tradition in Peru which has developed as a result of the death of weaker and very young Alpaca in the harsh Andean Winters. Alpaca roam freely in their natural terrain on the Altiplano of the Andes where temperatures can plummet in the Winter. The fur Samantha Holmes sources is mainly from baby Alpacas - or “cria” - which have died of natural causes.
The farmers do not kill their baby alpacas for their skins because it is not financially viable for them to do so. The skins are tiny. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.
Available in Charcoal and Taupe in two sizes: 9-10 and 10-11
