What is the difference between slippers and shoes? Can slippers also be used outdoors?
We have two separate categories on our site - shoes for indoor and for outdoor use.
1. Shoes for indoor use: slippers and indoor moccasins:
- With soft suede, thin microcellular rubber or Vibram® Wave sole.
- No lining.
- Suitable for indoor use at home or in the kindergarten.
- Ideal for first steps.
- Can be carried out in dry and hot weather.
- Not suitable for intensive running, tree-climbing and playing outside.
Important: Some indoor models (Robin Creme, for example) have a drop-down menu option for 5 mm Vibram® rubber sole which makes them suitable for outdoor use, as well.
2. Shoes for outdoor use: shoes (including moccasin models)
- With Vibram® rubber sole.
- With thin leather lining for extra insulation and water resistance.
- Ideal for both toddlers and children who can already walk well.
- Suitable for intensive outdoor use - running, playing, etc.
How much inner space does the sheepskin of the Leo Sheepskin model occupy?
The inner dimensions of the Leo Sheepskin model would diminish by 2-3 mm.
Does the Leo Sheepskin model have an insole?
The sheepskin fibers which are on the inside play the role of an insole but you can choose to purchase an additional wool-and-leather insole (inner dimensions will diminish by 2 mm).
I purchased Zeazoo shoes and sandals in the same size but they have different sole lengths. Is this a mistake?
The shoe construction requires additional space for stitching. The construction of the sandals with open toe box, on the other hand, allows for complete usability of the entire length of the sole. Sandal models with closed toe box and/or closed back have the same limitation as the shoes.
Furthermore, the open construction of the sandals requires that only the bottom part of the foot fit the sole, while the wider and softer parts of the foot are supported by the leather details. If the measurements you used to determine the correct size are precise, the sole length should provide enough comfort.
Can I get the Anemone sandals without the smaller leather details?
Yes, you can. Just please note this in your Customer message.
Can I choose a different symbol for the Ariel model?
Only a few of our smaller size symbols are available for this model as its straps are very narrow.
You can see the symbols appropriate for Ariel here and pay the additional €5 customization fee here.
Can I order the Ariel in vegetable tanned leather with an open back?
Yes, you can. Generally, we do not recommend an open back with the vegetable tаnned leather, as it is more tender and tends to stretch easily. This can cause the heel to slip out of the sandal.
However, if the model you are looking at has lining, it will have better heel support. The lining can be chosen from the respective drop-down menu. There is no additional charge for the open-heel customization, but the pair will not be subject to our standard return policy.
The open heel will add approximately 3-4 mm to the inner length of the shoe.
Can I get a symbol on the Shell sandals?
Yes, it is possible. However, to free some space for it, you have to choose which detail to be removed - the one in front of the toes or the one attached to the straps.
Take note that the customized pair will no longer be subject to our standard return policy.
What is the recommended temperature range for your boots?
Usage temperature range varies for different body and activity types and may also depend on the socks.
Generally, the sheepskin lining will provide even greater warmth than the woolen one.
The range can vary from 0 to -15 °C.
Are Zeazoo boots waterproof?
Our Yeti models are produced in waterproof leather but even with the high quality stitching and excellent quality of the material, the models are not water-resistant in rain and snow, as water can get inside from the upper part of the shoes where the hand-stitching is.
Of course, you can choose to use an impregnating product all over any and all Zeazoo shoes for additional defense.
What is the difference between the Yeti and Dingo boots?
- Yeti and Dingo are models with completely different constructions and designs.
- The sheepskin hair on the Dingo is longer than that of Yeti’s lining.
- Yeti's sole is glued and stitched to one big leather and wool or sheepskin detail which embraces the feet.
- Yeti’s sole is curved and footprint-shaped, while Dingo’s sole is wide and nearly oval - more than 1.5 cm of Dingo's sole length and width are not usable at all due to its design and stitching requirements.
- Yeti models are produced in waterproof leather.
- Yeti boots can be produced with double-layer soles.
- Dingo is lighter in weight compared to Yeti with sheepskin and double-layer sole.
What is the difference between wool and sheepskin lining?
- Wool lining is a fabric (wool fleece), while sheepskin lining is leather with hairs.
- Wool lining takes about 2-3 mm off of the inner space, while sheepskin lining occupies about 3-4 mm.
- Sheepskin lining gives even better insulation against lower temperatures.
- Sheepskin is more durable to the inside friction between the lining and the feet.
- Sheepskin absorbs more water (moisture) compared to Wool lining.
Can I customize my Dingo pair or get it in another color, size or sole?
We are constantly relying on your feedback and making upgrades on our models based on it. We can make general construction or parameters (size and color) upgrades or make a pair customized by your request.
However, we can not make any and all modifications on all of our models. The construction of some models requires new patterns for all parts. This can make the customization unreasonably expensive. Dingo is one of these models and currently color, size and width cannot be customized for this model. We only make Dingo in the specific colors and sizes from EU23/24 to EU46 listed in each product.
