Shop Green Today brings POKEBOO Packable Rain Boots to the UK


Yorkshire-based Shop Green Today has launched Japanese company POKEBOO's game-changing packable rain boots in the UK. Winners of the Good Design Award - 2018, the boots are fully waterproof and pack away into a compact carry case.


Perfect for a spring and summer of outdoor socialising and beyond, the boots lend themselves to urban trekking, camping, picnics, outdoor events and festivals.


"We're set for a few more months of restrictions, plus of course the great British weather, and POKEBOO Packable Rain Boots are going to be absolutely brilliant for safe, al fresco get-togethers - we've worked closely with ATOM and POKEBOO and we're so excited to bring these to the UK market," said a company spokesperson for Shop Green Today.


Made from eco-friendly Thai natural rubber by ATOM Corporation, POKEBOO Rain Boots are available in a range of colours to suit all tastes. But the boots are not only stylish, each pair is so lightweight they weigh no more than an average-sized water bottle. Thanks also to a handy carabiner, they can easily be stored and carried anywhere, and brought out at a moment's notice.


The innovative Japanese design is form-fitting along the calf for a comfortable, snug feel. The unique design of the sole includes a reinforced heel, meaning better grip and surer footing when out and about. Handmade by skilled craftsmen in Thailand, POKEBOO Packable Rain Boots are made using the same manufacturing techniques ATOM has used for over 60 years in the production of rice planting boots.


The boots are ideal for use in all kinds of outdoor settings and light duty activities - walking, fishing enthusiasts and keen shoppers alike will appreciate their convenient and flexible design. Combining portability with functionality, these compact boots could be a strong rival to the bulkier, more traditional wellington style British shoppers are used to.
