Sanuk Nice Bootah – Unbelievably Comfortable and Stylish
Sanuk Nice Bootah
In a market saturated with house slippers and booties, the Sanuk Nice Bootah (MSRP $80) is my favorite to wear around the house. They are comfy to wear and keep my feet toasty warm without overheating.
Constructed from synthetic and mesh, the ankle-high upper and yoga mat footbed is lined in soft faux shearling that wraps your foot in warmth. The ultra-flexible cupsole allows for unparalleled support and cushioning.
Quite frankly, I have never owned a better-fitting pair of slippers! I have two pairs of these (one pair I keep at home, the other pair at a ski condo) and wish I had more.
Unlike similarly designed ankle slippers, the pliable Nice Bootah fit almost like a glove; not too tight, but no pockets of space on the uppers where I could occasionally feel drafts of cold air on my ankle.
I wear these most often without socks, so it is necessary to use the convenient suede pull along the back to assist on getting them on.
Sanuk’s M.O. is comfortable in an unassuming design.
While there are other similar designs to the Nice Bootah, they can’t compare to the softness the absorbing yoga mat footbed provides. After a long day of skiing, my feet welcome the Nice Bootahs.
Also, I love the minimalist appearance. The Nice Bootahs is sleek and cozy with a slightly modern appearance. The shaft is approximately 5” in height and has a stylish cut where the lining overlaps nearly to the sole.
Not only are these my apres-ski slippers, but they’ve also become my pandemic slippers, and I delight in slipping them on and wearing them in my home office.
The final word? Sanuk’s Nice Bootah are unbelievably comfortable, stylish and will be your go-to lounge booties for spring skiing and beyond.
