Up the cozy and comfy factor this winter with Mou boots

Mou is a French adjective that means “soft to the touch,” and it’s a fitting brand name. Mou boots are destined to be your go-to comfort shoes, with a flexible moulded rubber sole topped by a supple upper made of natural hides from antelope, sheepskin, goatskin, and calfskin. Designs are embellished with faux fur, sequins, and metallic finishes for an off-beat, playful attitude.

Mou Origins

Shelley Tichborne launched Mou in 2002 from a small shop inside London’s Portobello Road, selling to travelers, tourists, and locals who happened upon the curious-looking shoes. Slowly, word of mouth expanded awareness of the label, and today, Mou’s flagship shop resides in the famed Burlington Arcade, alongside other cult names like Fabrizio Viti, Church’s, and Manolo Blahnik.

Now considered one of London’s first cult eco-friendly labels, Mou is committed to ethical, handmade, and high-quality production that results in durable and long-lasting styles. Celebrities like Gwenyth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz are fans.

Mou Boots Styles

The Eskimo boots are the quintessential Mou style, characterized by a low-profile sole, just-above-the-ankle height, and wide variety of finishes, from metallic faux snakeskin to rhinestoned-studded suede.

We love variations like the quilted and felted wool short Eskimo boots (18 centimeters tall) and camel suede tall Eskimo boots (40 centimeters tall).

Mou Boots Fit

Mou boots fit true to size, but because they only come in full sizes, we recommend to go up to the nearest whole size if you are between sizes. This allows for plenty of roominess and room for socks or leggings.

Mou boots are designed so that you can tuck your jeans or trousers into them, for full coverage and warmth retention.
