Boot Bananas

Designed by model maker Alex and her partner Phil, a climbing instructor, Boot Bananas were born out of their battle to banish the stink of Phil’s smelly shoes for good.

They'd just moved into their first flat together and the smell of Phil’s climbing shoes had become a problem he could no longer hide. They tried everything on the market to deodorise them but nothing was up to the challenge. So, putting their best feet forward, we decided to fight the funk ourselves.

Wanting to avoid any synthetic chemicals, Alex and Phil perfected their own powerful blend of naturally deodorising salts and minerals. Alex got to work designing the optimum shoe-friendly shape, and when combining this with yellow fabric, had her ‘light bulb moment’ and Boot Bananas were born. Once Phil’s fruity-footed climbing friends had rigorously tested the Bananas, their little South London flat became a hub of lavender-infused activity.

Over the following year they had hand-made nearly 8000 Boot Bananas from home, before teaming up with Troll Outdoors in 2013. Today, Boot Bananas are made by their dedicated team in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Learn more about the ingredients that go into Boot Bananas.
