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.

We fought the funk

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

It’s…a banana!

Wanting to avoid any synthetic chemicals, we perfected our 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, our little South London flat became a hub of lavender-infused activity.

Fruits of our labour

Over the following year we hand-made nearly 8000 Boot Bananas from home, before teaming up with a factory to create a dedicated manufacturing process. Learn more about the ingredients that go into Boot Bananas.
