Tradition, Modernity & Originality


by Justin Brady

There’s an old Russian proverb that says ‘All new is a well-forgotten old.’ Say hello to Baabuk.

Inspired by Russian ‘Valenkis,’ designed in Switzerland and handcrafted in Nepal these just might be the most comfortable slippers and sneakers you will ever slide onto your feet.

We’re in the middle of a global artisanal movement – a true golden age. And when you mix together tradition with a splash of modernity and a whole lot of originality you end up with products that challenge us to consider something new and different.

Like a slipper made from just three ingredients (wool, water and soap) or a sneaker made from wool.  

We’re delighted to be able to bring these amazing slippers and sneakers to the U.S. for the first time. Comfortable, durable, handmade and ethically produced. That’s Baabuk in a nutshell.

Follow the links below to check out our slippers Gus, Jeremy and kids, and sneakers - classic and urban.
