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.
