As far back as I remember my wife, the kids and I spent so much time rushing in and out of the garden through the kitchen door in all weather getting soggy socks and then walking onto the carpets to find dark grubby patches appearing daily - always a bone of contention!!
The situation intensified when after some time living on the beautiful island of Mallorca in 2001 we moved to a modest family 3-bed house in Bournemouth and decided in our wisdom to move work out of the house and into a large wooden hut in the garden. I was in my element, peace at last! I even insulated it and installed heating. As well as hosting my sacred office it had a dartboard and a running machine (which we did actually use).
However, nothing had really changed with the soggy socks and slippers scenario... It was time to make a plan.
I just needed a sensible pair of waterproof shoes to sit by the threshold of the back door in order that I could make the short trip to the hut elevated by just 3cm from the perils that ruin your carpets, slippers and socks.The whole point was that they needed to be easy on , easy off so not boots. I thought long and hard and eventually borrowed a pair of traditional medical theatre clogs from a friend. They were white, heavy and uncomfortable but most importantly to me at that time they were waterproof and I could slip them on and off in quicktime. The next 2 years saw prototype after prototype, my wife and I really put a lot of time and effort into designing the perfect and most comfortable Backdoorshoes® you see today.
