The Ammern houseshoe is the perfect work-from-home/stay-at-home essential that combines orthotic-quality support with natural materials for year-round comfort.
We make ‘houseshoes,’ not slippers. What is the difference? For us, it’s a philosophy about what purpose our footwear serves. We prefer to use our work/play shoes for their intended purpose, which is, well, work and play. We don’t like to track the dirt, germs and funk indoors. Houseshoes, on the other hand, are exactly that: shoes for your home. So, we set our minds to designing the Ultra-Comfort Collection which allows you to have the support and stability of a ‘shoe’ while also feeling relaxed, comfortable, and energized. You have the option of enjoying our removable anatomically-correct footbeds with arch support or replace them with your own custom orthotic. Our 100% boiled wool uppers are temperature-regulating and wick away moisture, creating a dry and healthy environment for your feet all year long. Naturally anti-microbial boiled wool is never itchy or scratchy and our edge-free mid seam ensures form-fitting comfort with no rubbing or chafing. Our patented, slip- and water-resistant latex-dipped outsole will not mark or scuff your floors. And they are machine washable (air-dry only). Keep a pair of Giessweins near your front door: they are the comforting conclusion to a long day or the perfect start to a new one.

BREATHABLE BOILED WOOL + THE ULTIMATE SUPPORT = THE GIESSWEIN HOUSESHOE
Breathable boiled wool is never itchy or scratchy. And contrary to popular myth, wool doesnt make you hot. In fact, it will cool you down when you start to warm up. Conversely, it will warm you up when you get a little chilly. (Not convinced yet? Why do you think sheep love their wooly coats ALL YEAR ROUND? Answer: the design of individual wool hairs allows it to regulate your temperature naturally in summer or winter.) Our anatomically-correct, removable footbeds are designed to offer you the widest comfort options: enjoy the amazing arch support, metatarsal arch, deep heel cup, & foot-molding contour of our patented footbeds OR insert your own custom orthotics. Whos to say you cant have it both
