Glerups shoes, slippers and boots are known for their exceptional comfort. This is due to the foot-shaped and unique design combined with the softness and warmth of the wool.
The designs are also based on a long tradition of hand felting, which we have transformed into innovative products of highest quality. The craft has been translated into Glerups.dk's industrial production where parts of the production are still done manually, since they require a special skill to accomplish. A manual dexterity which cannot be replaced by machines.
Simplicity and optimal use of the attributes of the natural material are the basic elements when developing the product range. Through these we aim for the optimum mix of functionality, beauty and durability. The result can be described in three words: Beautiful - Natural - Warm
Firstly, both leather and rubber soles have the same shoe structure and apart from the soles, they are made using the same material so both are extremely comfortable!
Leather soles are almost weightless, like walking on air, gives bare foot feeling but still gives stability too. Great on carpets, tiles or wood floors. Not so great on slippery surfaces or wet weather.
Sturdy, flexible, waterproof and non slip, the rubber soles are made from natural tree rubber and good for indoor and outdoor use. Great if you want to pop outside for a minute and not think about changing your shoes. They are robust and hardwearing but cosy and comfortable too.

Well, it really depends on the personal choice.
Boots are great for cold winter days, covers your ankles so no room for any cold to sneak in. Having said that, they are made of 100% pure wool so it is not only breathable but they also keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Glerups Slip On
If you are after max comfort but least physical effort (like bending down to put them on) then the slip ons are great as they can be easily put on and off. The slip on model has to be snug so definitely measure your foot before buying them as you don't want them to flop. Don't buy size smaller either as this would cause different issues later on (you will poke a hole in them). If you want a second opinion, just ask us via our Chat Bot, we love helping our customers!
If you are looking for a "house shoe", rather than a slipper, then the shoe model is just the right thing for you. You put them on in the morning and we promise you will forget you are wearing them in the afternoon. Comfy, cosy and stylish!
Yes they are. So if you wear UK size 9 shoes 99% of the time, buy a pair of size 9 (or EU 43).
If you want a second opinion, just click on the Chat bot on our website, we would be delighted to help you choosing the right size.
As these are made in European sizing, there is no exact match to UK 7 or UK 10. We recommend buying size 7.5 or 10.5 instead. There is only a few mm difference for half a size and this won't make a big difference in the fit.

I love supporting small businesses. I have bought Gleurps before from My Little Wish and would do do again. I was late ordering a birthday present but the parcel turned up the next day. I also love the fact they recycle boxes and are mindful about packaging. Fantastic little shop.
