Come rain, shine, or even snow, the journey must go on! We kept that in mind when crafting the Thredbo, an ultra-cosy slipper boot that puts earth-friendly comfort above all else.
DURABLE OUTDOOR SOLES – designed to take you from the couch to the back door and beyond, our signature high-grip Gumtread™ outsoles are flexible and long lasting, perfect for fireside or après-ski adventures. Plus, they're made with recycled rubber so every step loves the earth back!
SECOND LIFE & NATURAL MATERIALS - with felt uppers made from recycled plastic, foam insoles made from plant-derived organic materials, and durable outsoles made from recycled rubber, every step is a step in the right direction.
COMFORT FOR YOUR SOLE - the Thredbo's stylish high-top boot design can be worn rolled down or up, for your choice of snugness. Our super-soft recycled PET felt uppers provide a cosy, vegan-friendly alternative to traditional wool slippers, as well as being a second-life material.
FEEL GOOD, DO GOOD - through our partnership with Empower AS, your purchase of the Thredbo slipper recovers the equivalent of 80 plastic bottles worth of plastics from ocean shorelines and riverbanks. As well as providing income to local waste-pickers in South-East Asia & Africa, this converts harmful plastic pollution into renewable materials, like that used to make our cosy felt uppers!
Boot up & cosy down, adventure doesn't stop when winter begins!

Each pair of our Thredbo boot slippers feature our very own recycled rubber Gumtread™ outsole. The outsole is designed to be flexible for comfort and durable to take you further than your back door.
We use recycled PET (Post consumer plastic bottles) which make up the upper of our slippers. This plastic is turned into felt which provides warmth and comfort.
Our feather-light foam insoles are of natural, plant-based origin. They are formulated from organic, biomass-derived materials and have a lower carbon footprint than typical polyurethane foam. This material is the perfect texture to comfort the sole through its super-soft cushioned surface.
