How They're Made


We believe in creating the change we want to see. That's why we've chosen high quality plant-based and recycled materials to make every slipshoe®. Plus, we offset carbon emissions on every order shipped.


Sourced from apple skins and cores, our beautiful, yet durable Apple Leather is 100% vegan and made from waste recovered from the apple juice industry in Northern Italy. This reduces CO2 impact significantly compared to animal leather and faux leather made from 100% fossil fuels.


We use sugarcane EVA for our soles which has the same softness and flexibility of traditional EVA foam found in sneakers, but replaces petroleum-based material with a bio-based alternative — sugarcane! Raw sugarcane is a renewable resource that actually reduces greenhouse gas emissions by absorbing CO2 in the atmosphere.

Recycled Plastic Bottles

Soft and breathable, our lining is made from a combination of recycled plastic bottles and post-consumer recycled polyester. Any scraps produced in the process are recovered and used for future rolls of material, creating a zero waste system.


Cork is actually just the bark of a cork tree, making it a super-renewable, local resource in Portugal that can be sourced without harvesting trees. It's odor resistant, anti-bacterial, and shock absorbing. We pair it with natural latex or recycled foam to provide you with a supportive, springy feel.

Recycled Polyester

Made from post industrial polyester scrap, our premium vegan suede is luxurious to the touch, and has a reduced fossil energy consumption compared to the traditional petrol-based polyester production process.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton, which is grown without harmful chemicals, is better for workers' health, prevents water contamination, and is safer for our skin. Plus, it uses up to 71% less water than conventional cotton. We use GOTS certified organic for the lining of our House Shoes making them the perfect balance of cozy & breathable.

Recycled Rubber

Did you know rubber comes from a milky white liquid extracted from the Hevea-Brasilienis tree? Our recycled rubber soles in our House Sandals provide support, grip, an style.

Recycled Foam

Cushioning is key to Dooeys' comfort and our insoles are made from recycled plastic and provide that cushy feeling without sacrificing sustainability.

Recycled Packaging

Our packaging is made from recycled materials. The Dooeys shoe box is made from recycled cardboard and is ready to ship so requires no additional carton. Plus, we only use recycled packing paper to protect your house shoes during transit.


Dooeys provide the coziness of a slipper with all-day comfort. Whether you're cooking a meal, chasing little ones, or just getting things done around the house, our sneaker-like soles and supportive insoles are sure to treat your feet right at home.


We pride ourselves on doing small batch production, buying as close to demand as possible to prevent overproduction.

We produce our slipshoes at a small factory in Portugal that is dedicated to ethical manufacturing, ensuring fair treatment of all workers and providing a safe and healthy work environment.
