DO you need “home” shoes? Looking to have a cleaner home? Looking to have a healthier home? If the answer is, “Yes!” , you do need “home” shoes, enter Giesswein house shoes. “Shoes for the house?”, you say? Yes! We are lucky enough to have hard wood flooring throughout our entire home. It has been very beneficial to me as I have a host of environmental allergies and I love a clean home! We have instilled a “no shoes” rule in our home to help cut back on the dirt brought into our home. The professional cleaning industry states that over 80% of dirt comes from your shoes! EWW! The EPA agrees, no shoes inside. But, how do you care for your tootsies?
Giesswein is a family owned, (3 generations!)eco -friendly , German company that offers a full line of comfortable, stylish and al natural boiled wool house shoes. Wool often makes people think of itchiness and winter, not true. The house shoes offered by Giesswein (pronounced Geese-vine) all are made of boiled wool, cutting out the itch factor and wool is an all natural material that breathes and is comfortable to wear all year round. Giesswein house shoes are washable, made with a natural rubber latex, non marking sole that provides plenty of traction without trapping in the dirt! They provide anatomically correct foot support and since wool is naturally anti microbial, the will not get smelly if you wear them all the time (as I am sure you will), they are THAT comfy! Giesswein uses eco-friendly vegetable dyes (HOORAY!) and are made in Europe, with a high focus on little eco impact and are packaged in an eco-friendly manner.
As they do retail between $50-$70, I want to mention that Geisvein are made to last, made to be passed down (another HOORAY!) and are meant to be worn 365 days a year. They will last, and last and last.
Both Big B and I currently own a pair of Giesswein house shoes, and guess whose are on their way? Giesswein house shoes are a lifestyle decision. They offer shoes for men, women and children.
You can even try a pair and if you are dissatisfied, send them back with their free return shipping policy!
We are very pleased with our cleaner, healthier home and know you will be too.
