Don’t try to fit in, you were born to stand out! Slugs & Snails

Slugs & Snails

Kat and Noah - the inspiration for Slugs & Snails original boy's tights

Slugs & Snails – the original boy’s tights company. We are a small family run business which started in 2008 with the birth of our son. Living in an old house, atop a cold windy hill on the west coast of Ireland, keeping our newborn warm was a priority and to us, tights were the obvious solution, yet we simply couldn’t find any tights designed for little boys.

So we put him in the only tights we could buy, girls tight. It didn’t take long for us to really appreciate how practical tights were and so and began to come up with my own designs with little boys in mind. We wanted something extra special, super soft and durable and designs that were as playful, colourful and unique as he was! As we began to chat to other parents we realised others shared our frustration at the lack of boys tights on the market…and so you have it Slugs & Snails was born! We are the FIRST company in the UK or Ireland to design and produce tights just for boys, that makes us proud!

Why Boys Tights?

Slugs & Snails - bright tights for bold boys!

Boys, by nature, are busy, bold and robust and that’s just how we want them to stay. However we found that boy’s clothing departments lack any comfy yet flexible legwear for little dudes. Unlike jeans and trousers our tights allow your child the freedom to bend and move freely and in a way that conventional trousers just don’t allow. They feel good too, which means that your little boy (or girl) can enjoy all the thrills of being a kid unrestricted – isn’t that the best way?

Being the proud owners of a little boy we remember (not too fondly) how many times we searched for that lost sock which vanished half way around the supermarket, or how as we managed to put one sock on the other was in the process of being pulled off. What about the cold legs? When you carry or baby wear a little person their trousers end up somewhere behind their knee making for very cold little legs. Slugs & Snails tights eliminate all these problems which make warm, happy people.
