Woven Leather Slides

Handcrafted, woven leather slides from Northern Karnataka, India, by Mohinders. Each pair is made by master shoemakers using full-grain water buffalo leather that molds to your feet over time for the perfect fit. Handmade leather patinas to a rich, deeper color the more it's worn. Features a soft leather lining, cushioned footbed, stacked leather midsole and durable, grippy crepe rubber sole. *Half sizes size up. Available in natural leather only.

Mohinders works with families of 3rd-and 4th-generation shoemakers and leather tanners and strives to uphold respectful design and sustainability from start to finish. This means heirloom, regional processes, intentional choices to reduce waste and use lower-impact materials, and creating shoes that last and age beautifully.
