Mahabis describe themselves as ‘a brand centred around downtime’, a portion of our day that is vastly under catered for in the field of minimalist design. The designers of Mahabis slippers drew upon the traditional casual footwear of Morocco, Scandinavia and India for inspiration while creating their shoes, and this cultural exchange was coupled with a refined aesthetic from the London based design studio to create these elegant yet practical slippers.
But Mahabis slippers aren’t intended to serve exclusively for around the home. They can also be combined with detachable rubber soles which were designed in conjunction with the grey wool footwear to provide additional grip and protection from the elements for outdoor wear. These rubber soles affix to the base of the slipper via a simple fastener at the rear of the shoe. And Mahabis slippers also feature a collapsible neoprene back around the heel to allow them to be worn either as loose slipper, or as a conventional shoe.
The upper felt portion of the slippers will initially be made in just two rather minimalistic colours, larvik light grey and larvik dark grey. But if you’re hoping to inject some colour into your slippers then you’ll be happy to learn that the detachable rubber soles are available in 6 different colours, grey, black and the four more vibrant options pictured below.
This is not a slipper designed for athletic performance or built to help you win. This is about the rest of the day, your other adventures. Helping you wind down. Feel at home.Mahabis
Mahabis slippers are admittedly somewhat expensive for what they are, but the £60 price tag is by no means excessive for a pair of quality, comfortable slippers and they could make a great Christmas gift idea. The fact that they also function as outdoor shoes with their detachable rubber soles also makes Mahabis slippers quite a unique proposition.
Mahabis Summer Slipper
Mahabis have also recently unveiled their new ‘summer slipper’ which is made of a material more appropriate for wearing in warm weather. As opposed to the felt and wool body of their ‘classic slipper’, this new summer slipper design is made from a highly breathable mesh material and feature a lightweight lining. The body of the summer slipper is available in 4 muted tones which include: agen aqua, nora navy, gya grey and sala stone, and these colours can be paired with the same vibrant rubber soles shown above with their grey wool slippers.
