This footwear innovation is called TI:ME Slippers and is a combination of slipper/sneaker that can be worn indoors and outdoors. “It’s a slipper that has that true sneaker aesthetic,” explains founder Ryan Doughtery. “You can wear them out of the house without looking like you just rolled out of bed.” The basic problem, according to Dougherty, is that slippers are comfortable but look terrible and sneakers look cool but aren’t always comfortable. The key to achieving comfort is in the construction of the slipper. The TI:ME Slipper has elastic laces that hug the feet, eliminating the stress of tying and untying. A unique V-cut entry allows easy on and off turning high-tops into slip-ons. The real innovation is the insole, which is made of the same material as yoga mats. Click here for campaign details.
