Oodie launches ‘amazing’ machine-washable shoe range: ‘Boost of cosiness’

What took them so long?

There’s a saying that goes something like this: as long as your feet are cosy and warm, the rest of your body will be too.

Try telling that to the legions of Aussies who swear there’s only one thing you really need to stay warm in the coldest of winters: a big, fluffy Oodie.

Proving that you can never have too much of a good thing, Oodie has just revealed its first machine washable shoe range – meaning you can now be 100 per cent toasty from your hooded head to your fluffy feet.

We have only one question: What took them so long?

When Oodies first made their appearance on the scene, they were considered strictly for indoor wear – for when you’re cosying up on the couch, watching Netflix or scoffing bags of popcorn on a cold winter’s night.

But slowly, like Crocs and Birkenstocks, Oodies slowly began to make their way from the confines of the house and garden out into the wider world.

Pandemic lockdowns made comfort dressing more acceptable than ever before, and hardcore Oodie lovers happily started wearing their favourite fleecy hoodies out for the supermarket dash or to hit up the takeaway coffee stand.

So why not create a matching range of fluffy, cosy footwear to match?

Oodie’s solution was to release six versatile new footwear styles that go right to the current need for comfort dressing,

There are fluffy Sherpa boots, puffer-slips ons, and even a summery two-strap option in a range of colours from snow white and jet black to hot pink and bright green.

Guaranteed to get the footwear conversation going, these are the type of shoes that can be worn to lounge around the house, run around with the kids, pop on after a gym workout, or party in at a winter festival.

The two-strap Sherpa slide, $69, and platform, $79, both have moulded footbeds with arch support to offer increased comfort and wearability for long periods of time.

The platform sandal has a nifty rubber outsole so you can wear them outdoors – whether that’s on the school pickup, out for brunch with friends or on a coffee run.

The brand describes them as giving your feet a “boost of cosiness” and fans are enthralled.

“These look amazing! I neeeeed all of them,” one shopper enthused on Instagram about the launch.

The Sherpa Boot, $89, has extra toe protection for increased support and goes perfectly well with an original Oodie or Onesie.

The Puffer Slip On, $89, has the same fluffy interior featured in the OG Oodie, paired with a rubber soul for durability even in wild weather.

Finally the Puffer Boot, $89, gives padded heel support for an extra snug fit.

Animal lovers can breathe a sigh of relief, too – Oodie’s famous Sherpa-Lined interior is made from 100 per cent vegan materials.
