Boot Bananas come to fruition when Alex and Phil moved in together. The stench of Phil's climbing shoes was something he could no longer hide, and nothing they tried seemed to helped de-odourise them.
They set to work on their own solution in a small South London flat using Phil's funky-footed climbing friends as test pieces. Eventually, they came up with the unique and effective banana shaped shoe deodourisers we have come to know, love and appreciate.
As a testament to their popularity, as well as Alex and Phil’s dedication to the cause, they hand-made nearly 8000 Boot Bananas in their first year. Needless to say, they don’t make them by hand anymore.
