From a company based in London comes a modern slipper with a global design that’s made in Portugal and Italy. Fusing Scandinavian minimalism with Moroccan and Indian influence and, of course, comfort, Mahabis’ simple, clean slipper design was an idea that came from founder Ankur Shah – he wondered why slippers couldn’t be high-quality, comfortable and beautiful. Designed in Europe by a team led by designer Joe Cooke, working alongside Mr Bailey, the design of such simple footwear is actually the result of a lengthy design process that includes 3D printing.
With an Italian wool upper with a 100% lambswool liner, the collapsible neoprene heel makes it very easy to slide it on and off. I’m sure some of you walk around the house in slippers, but sometimes venture outside to get the newspaper, go down the hall to check your mail or go up and down your apartment building’s steps with your laundry. And maybe you don’t want to take off those warm, cozy slippers when you get back inside the house. That’s what makes these so unique – you can remove the detachable water-resistent sole at your doorstep, so you can keep your feet warm and cozy and your floors clean while walking inside your house. That cleverly-designed sole was developed using 3D printed rubber in a variety of experimental prints until they landed on the perfect shape.
There are currently two styles: wool and “summer,” made of a breathable mesh.
The sole is available in six colors, and you can buy one color or all six!
