Frequently Asked Questions

Are Ripa® sandals water resistant or waterproof?

The Sedona sandal is waterproof. The Himalayan uses only real sheepskin that is naturally water resistant, but not waterproof. We recommend you don’t get them drenching wet. A small amount of water is fine, it will bead at the surface and the shearling will take on a curly texture. If you’re looking for even greater resistance, you can spray your fleece sandals with a water repellant shoe product.

Will any of the Ripa® sandals mark my floor if I wear them in the house?

No! All Ripa outsoles have non-marking rubber outsoles giving you comfort and the reassurance that you won’t mark your floors.

Can I wear my Ripa® Himalayan sandals outside?

Yes! Unlike many fleece lined sandals, or slippers, the patented Himalayan design incorporates athletic soles giving you the freedom and confidence to wear them outside! The ribbing will give you non-slip wear and they are non-marking should you wear them inside.

Are my Ripa® sandals washable?

If want to clean your Himalayan sandals, we recommend gently hand washing them with cold water and a mild soap. Rinse, then simply air dry. They will fluff naturally, to a curly texture. Do not machine wash or put in the dryer.

The Ripa Sedona sandals are washable.

Will the Himalayan sandals be too hot for my feet in the spring/summer or make my feet sweat?

Unlike many fleece sandals on the market, the Himalayan uses only all natural shearling which is breathable and moisture wicking allowing you to be comfortable throughout the seasons, without sweat build up. Synthetic fleece, on the other hand, can leave you too warm and sweaty.

Does the Ripa Sedona sandal have padding?

Yes. The Sedona features extra layers of padding and arch support all within a cork wrap footbed.
