Not that one would want to dance on the toasty warm grave of summer so soon, but given that autumn is regrettably upon us, it’s not unreasonable to think ahead to a time in the not-so-distant future when toes will require something a little more heavy duty than open sandals to keep them happy.
The demise of the ugg boot is something that has been predicted—nay, hoped for—on this site recently with the launch of Gypsyz booties and HowBigIsYourEco has recently come across another worthy contender for the title of can’t-live-without-em winter warmer.
Flocks hails out of Melbourne and their sheepskin lace-ups are undoubtedly more streamlined and stylish than old school uggs. The soles adopt a natural crepe rubber, a crude form of natural rubber that is claimed to be more environmentally friendly than your standard issue rubber.
The skins (and, yes, they are skins so not the thing for those who prefer a vegan wardrobe) are sourced from Dynasty, a company that employs only chemical-free tanning on their textiles. Flocks also sells a couple of spiffy-looking handmade sheepskin laptop covers.
