Welcome to the Family: Beach Dogz Sandals

We’ve welcomed some new arrivals to the Dogz family, and we’re so excited to share them with you! We’re proud to introduce you to Beach Dogz!

We’ll never deny that slippers are the perfect addition to your wardrobe, they always are. But when you’re outside of the house, they aren’t always the right choice. So when you’re out and about, we’ve got something new for you to try.

These brand new additions to the family all come with just as many features as their fuzzy counterparts. That means that every pair has suede footbeds, memory foam underfoot and EVA soles for cushioning and shock absorption. This means that Beach Dogz are the ideal choice to wander through the English countryside with. They’re also great on sand, so feel confident in your choice to take them to the beach (the clue’s in the name after all!). But what really sets them apart and we’re particularly proud to say that they’re classically and endlessly stylish. So they look at home walking along the Riviera too!

If you’re overwhelmed by the number of choices we’ve just thrown into your life, we’re not sorry. We love each of our designs equally, they’re like our children after all. With that said, we can give you some guidance based on what your own style preferences are.

For Her

For the subtly sparkling ladies;

ROSIE SILVER LEATHER

The Rosie sandals in silver combine style and comfort with a little bit of shine. Beyond being ridiculously comfortable, these are also shoes which are very easy to style. For our photo shoot, we paired our sandals with white skinny jeans and a blue and white striped shirt. They’re also perfect as the accent item for an all black ensemble, or alongside any other block colour outfit. The beauty of the Rosie sandal is that she can be as dressed up or dressed down as you like, the power is in your hands… or rather, it’s on your feet.

For the statement shoe lover:

REBEL RED LEATHER

If you’re the person who loves having shoes which stand out from crowd, you’re not alone. We love bright, statement accessories, and the Rebel sandals are a fantastic choice, with vibrant coral hues contrasted against matte silver buckles. How you style these wonderful sandals is entirely up to you, we love them as the cherry on top of a smart casual outfit. With that said, they’re perfect with floaty skirts, casual shorts, and they even look great with a pair of jeans. Despite being statement shoes the Rebel in red can be placed alongside a wide variety of colours and textures, so they’ll never sit unused in your summer wardrobe. If you’re on the fence about buying these gorgeous sandals, take our word for it, you’ll get plenty of use out of them.

For Him

The staple shoe

MILO BLACK LEATHER

Some days are gloriously busy, and you might be at the beach, on a boat, and roaming through the city all in one afternoon. So you need a shoe that you can take into every new situation, that’s where Milo comes in. The classical leather styling screams effortless sophistication and can easily move between smart casual and relaxed events. Couple all of this with the suede footbed and you have the perfect blend of style and comfort. How you choose to style Milo is of course intensely personal, our initial recommendations would be khakis and a relaxed shirt, but we can’t wait to find out how you’ll choose to wear them.

So what pair is your favourite? We really do want to know, because your feedback will help make our future collections even greater. Until then, we hope you’ll embrace the new members of our family just as warmly as you all embraced Lazy Dogz.

Feeling Lazy? Here are 5 Sports That Don’t Require Much Effort!

Rio 2016 kicks off this weekend, and it looks like everyone is gripped by Olympic fever. While it’s sure to be an eventful and exciting spectacle, we can’t help but feel that being an Olympian would just be far too much effort – we’d much rather sit back on the sofa in our Lazydogz slippers and watch Mo Farah run the 10,000 metres than attempt it ourselves!

That said, there are still sports and games that you can get involved in without putting in too much effort – which is ideal if you enjoy lazing around a bit too much! You can even win Olympic medals for excelling at some of these sports, so they’re not to be sniffed at. Here are our top five sports that don’t require too much physical exertion…

Golf

Golf is undoubtedly an incredibly difficult and technical sport to grasp, and we’re not trying to offend any keen golfers by calling them lazy! But it’s definitely one of the least physically-taxing sports you can play. Buggy rides from hole to hole, the odd swing here and there and spending most of your days outside in the sun – it can be an incredibly relaxing sport and is a great way to unwind!

Archery

Archery has been contested at the Olympics since 1900, and requires incredible levels of composure, mental strength and, of course, a good aim. However, it’s unlikely to burn off a lot of calories, so it qualifies for our top five. If you fancy yourself as the next Legolas or Katniss Everdeen, why not give it a go?

Darts

Just like archery, darts requires a good eye. A notable difference, though, is that you can play it in the pub – winner! Darts players aren’t exactly known for their super-fit lifestyles (far from it…) but it’s still a challenging sport that requires great skill and dedication. So, dig out your best oversized shirt, head down to your local and step up to the oche!

Lawn Bowls

Lawn bowls isn’t at the Rio Olympics, but it is a regular feature of the Commonwealth Games. If you want to play a competitive sport outside but don’t want to break sweat, lawn bowls could well be for you. It’s got a bit of reputation as being a game for the older generation, but hey – standing around in the sun with your friends, bowling the odd ball? Sounds good to us!

Pool

Another sport which has the added advantage of being playable in the pub! Pool is a great game, all about angles, composure and technique. It takes years to master properly, but you can have lots of fun while you’re learning by playing for fun with friends. You don’t have to be physically fit to play it, but the ability to think under pressure and plan your next move is vital.

So there you have it, five great sports and games to get involved in that are ideal for us lazy lot!

Still not convinced? Fair enough – enjoy sitting in front of the TV, relaxing in your handmade Lazydogz slippers and watching Usain Bolt and co do their thing in Rio!

Give a dog a chance this Christmas

Last year, Manchester Dogs’ Home was the cruel victim of an arson attack, which devastated the shelter and resulted in the loss of more than sixty animals. They have been able to repair much of the damage done by the fire thanks to kind donations over the last year, but they still need more funds to make the shelter block a permanent fixture.

No dog deserves to be left out in the cold and we decided to do something to help. From now until Christmas Eve, we’re going to donate £1 to the Manchester Dogs’ home every time we sell a pair of our slippers.

Manchester Dogs’ Home helps so many vulnerable dogs throughout the region and do all they can to provide shelter, food and love to every animal. Any money is greatly appreciated by the charity, as Matt Cassel, fundraising manager at Manchester Dogs’ Home said: “we’ve been overwhelmed by public support over the past eighteen months and are delighted that LazyDogz has decided to support us this Christmas. Traditionally, we get a new influx of homeless dogs every January, but with our current kennel block offering only a temporary solution, we still need extra cash to fund the construction of a permanent home.”

We’re so pleased we can do something to support Manchester Dogs’ Home as they give dogs the shelter they need before they find a new, loving family. To be part of this campaign all you have to do is Tweet a picture of your pooch to @LazyDogzUK and @ManchDogs with the #LazyDogzMDH – simple.

If you’re looking to treat yourself this Christmas, buying LazyDogz slippers means you can help us to treat our canine friends too. If you want to give them something extra, why not give them a donation now before you have a look through our for him and for her range.
