There is a Christian Legend on felting origins that prooves even saint people love comfortable shoes! The legend says that it was St. Clement who invented felt. Setting off on a mission, he put a bit of wool into his sandals to prevent abrasions. After some time the wool has been felted influenced by sweat and friction. In this way he made kind of felted shoes.
Nowadays felt insoles are very common. We can buy them in many places and many people use them for health and comfort. But are they as cozy as a little fluffy piece of natural merino wool?
Felted shoes shown on a picture are taken from the blog of a Norwegian artist. They made a career, when I added them as an example to my Facebook post. Seems it is a good niche for someone who want to start his own business, as a lot of people dream about felted shoes! You can follow the Facebook discussion below.
