It’s still winter in many parts of the world (or some weeks it is, and some weeks it isn’t – hello, global warming!). Lasso came about when Gaspard Tiné-Berès went off to school and needed slippers to tolerate the cold stone floors. Taking a piece of spare felt and a sneaker lace, the first pair of Lasso slippers were born.

After 164 prototypes, the design was perfected and Tiné-Berès brought Ruben Valensi on board to help get the company rolling. Now made in Paris with the help of a company that provides work for people with special needs.

Lasso slippers are made from a single piece of wool felt, a leather sole, and cotton lace in five different colors. The slippers come flat-packed and easily take shape when you lace the edges together.

They are currently looking for funding on Kickstarter, so help them out with some cash while helping your feet get some warmth.
