About SUBU

SUBU TOKYO - streamlined Japanese design

Japanese brand SUBU is a new category of footwear. When you slip them on, SUBU wrap your feet in a pocket of warmth. 

The slide is made of a four-layered insole that allows one to wear them barefoot and keep the feet warm and comfy; the Teflon-coated nylon outside repels water while the rubber soles make them solid for wearing them outside.

“Meet the down jacket for your feet. SUBU Slippers comfort your feet after a long day with a soft, spongy footbed and an insulated exterior. They also boast a rugged outsole, meaning wearing them outdoors is not out of the question. SUBU Slides are like cladding your feet in sleeping bags that rest atop foam mattresses. In other words, once you put these on, you may never take them off.’’


Mother and daughter duo, Juliet and Georgia Sullivan share a passion for retail. When discovering the edgy Japanese brand SUBU, they jumped at the chance to join forces and import the slides into New Zealand.

They love brands that design modern, functional products. SUBU was no exception. These practical yet stylish indoor, outdoor slides are fun and very comfortable. In fact, some have said the only problem is that you may never want to take them off!

Based in Christchurch, each pair purchased online are packed and sent by Juliet and Georgia. If you have any issues with your order or you would like to discuss sizing, don’t hesitate to get in contact via Facebook or send an email to hello@subu.nz and they will be more than happy to help you.
