One of the best times of the day is come home and slide your toes into comfy cozy Nuknuuk slippers. Even in the summer. Really. We never pack our slippers away. Why would we when there are so many reasons to keep them on our feet? Read on to find out why your slippers may become your best friends this summer.
1. Avoid Chilly Feet
It’s true, summer has most of us looking forward to warm temperatures, blazing sun, backyard barbeques and swimming pool bliss. But not every part of North America gets swelteringly hot and stays that way all summer long. Temperatures may dip during the night, and it can get chilly once the sun disappears, especially in early summer and early fall.
Sporting your Nuknuuk slippers will help keep your feet stay warm.
2. Ward Off Bugs Outside
No matter where you live, there are probably tons of mosquitoes, black flies, horse flies and other bugs waiting for you to venture outside, ready to pounce. It’s almost impossible to escape them, even with all the bug repellents, sprays, candles, zappers and traps that are supposed to help control them.
According to experts, a little insect repellent, some bright, tightly woven clothing and mosquito-repelling plants throughout the yard are your best bet for bug control. Crush some leaves of plants like lemon balm, catnip, basil, lavender, peppermint or sage in your hand and spread the oils on your skin to prevent mosquitoes from catching your scent. You can also use a fan because they make it difficult for mosquitoes to fly. And don’t forget to keep your slippers on for extra protection. Anyone who ever had itchy bug bites on their feet knows how aggravating they are. Nuknuuks to the rescue!
3. Give Your Feet A Break
People love to get together in the summer for all kinds of outdoor activities. Picnics, pool parties, barbecues, you name it. And while summer dresses and high heels make for a fabulous outfit, feet are often the first to suffer, especially if the shoes are new and the weather is hot.
Break in new shoes gradually, and give your feet frequent breaks. If they could talk, they would sigh with relief whenever they slide into their comfortable Nuknuuk slippers. We are 100% sure about that.
4. Stay Comfortable While Working In And On The Home
A small, informal survey showed that men and women alike love to wear slippers while working on renovations, chores or other projects around the home.
When we asked the men around us, they said they would wear their slippers whenever possible during home renovations, including measuring, installing and finishing their projects! There could be many reasons for this, but we think it’s mostly because they are just soooo comfortable. It simply doesn’t feel like you are doing hard work when you can wear your slippers and loungewear at the same time.
So when you plan your next hammering, painting, cleaning or crafting project - make a point of wearing your slippers and see how it feels! We trust that you will use your judgment and leave them in a safe place when you have to tackle messy jobs.
5. Wear Them … Because You Can!
Nuknuuk slippers offer a wide range of features that make them the perfect choice for wearing at home in the summer.
First, the materials. Most Nuknuuk slippers hug your feet with a soft layer of natural sheepskin, which is breathable and wicks moisture away from the skin. Bare feet stay warm and dry as well as comfortable since the slippers will mould to the shape of your foot over time.
Next, the soles. Nuknuuks are designed with ultimate comfort and wearability in mind. Many of them come with indoor/outdoor soles, meaning they are the perfect choice for that morning coffee on the deck, emptying the pool filter or checking the car for lost phones. The soles make them durable so you don’t have to worry about damaging them.
And last but not least, the styles. If you often feel chilly, Nuknuuk’s popular moccasin-style slippers will provide instant comfort - see Lacey for women and Spencer for men. If you are often in a hurry and need to slip them on and off quickly, try our Joy and Alexa styles for women and Ed or Todd styles for men.
