FUBUKI (吹雪), the way people know it today, was founded in Stockholm, in late 2018, by two Swedish skiers/university students. 2018, however, was not the year things originally started. The idea behind the company was formed two years earlier when one of the two founders returned from a season-long ski trip to Niseko, Japan. Among the many things he had fallen in love with during the trip, the most noteworthy one was the orange rubber boots he had seen on the feet of the local mountain workers. In fact, his fascination for these boots, looks and function, immediately caused him to start working on his own version of them. When later joined by his partner in crime, it didn’t take long before FUBUKI was a fact. The name? Meaning “snowstorm” in Japanese, FUBUKI was an obvious pick.
"it’s a little ironic that the best version of the classic japanese rubber boot is produced by a couple of swedes under the name FUBUKI."
"we highly recommend that if you live in a cold, wet environment, you’ll be super pleased with these “slippers”.”
"extremely warm, exceptionally light, exceptionally stylish"
"whether you’re shoveling the driveway or shoveling nachos into your face during après, FUBUKI boots should be on your feet."
where design and comfort meets function and resistance. or, to cut a long story short, where sweden meets japan.
not your average winter boots.
if you find a pair that you want, make sure you grab them quickly. working with a small, family-owned boot factory means working with a limited number of production lines. therefore, it might take some time before you see them back in stock again. also, overproducing isn't really our thing.
