Established in 2016, SUBU is a Japanese brand that’s specialized in cozy slippers. Inspired by a design of a well-known outdoor brand, SUBU took the concept to a whole new level by adding Japanese design aesthetics to the iconic creation and even raising its comfort. SUBU slippers are synonymous with warmth and comfort, while a sturdy sole makes them suitable for the outdoors. Functionality and beauty fuse in a previously unknown category of footwear – SUBU.
Japan is a country where sandals are far more than just shoes. They’re a traditional footwear item that’s a vital part of a kimono outfit and go along with Buddhist monks on their spiritual journeys. But sandals or slippers are also a symbol of freedom. In November, the temperature in Tokyo often falls below 10°C and chilly days continue through winter. During that season, inside and outdoors become different worlds – and SUBU footwear designs are a way to connect these extremes. Besides offering a whole new level of functionality and comfort, SUBU slippers are also equipped with a contemporary, streamlined design that matches well with any outfit. No matter if you’re at a bonfire, enjoy a laidback trip to the green spaces of your favorite park or just stroll through your hood at late night, the SUBU slippers provide you with a comfortable, softly bedded walk.
