"How do you tie your Mohops?" Facebook Contest

We want to see all the cool ways that you lace your Mohop sandals.

If you have come up with an ingenious new lacing technique, made your own fabric ties, or dress up your pair with beads and fabric flower- we want to see it!

You have until August 15th to come up with a unique design for your pair of Mohops, document it and post it on our Facebook page. The entire staff at Mohop (all 4 of us) will decide on the most creative tie.

The winner will be announced on Facebook on August 20th. They will be featured on our Fresh Shoes Daily Blog with instructions on how to replicate their signature tie. They will also receive a prize pack containing the following:

2 pairs of silk fabric ties
10 pairs of Mohop ribbons
A Mohop hardware kit containing a variety of metal, wood and plastic rings.

How To Enter:
Take a photo of your laced up Mohops.
Go to the Mohop Shoes facebook page and click on the comment box.
Write "Contest Entry" and any description of the shoes you'd like.
Click on the attach photos icon.
Select Upload a Photo.

You may submit up to 5 different ways of tying but please upload all pictures separately so they go into our Fan Photos Album and not into a separate album.

Have fun tying! We can't wait to see what you come up with!


Etsy shoes

I added a few shoes to Etsy - there are a few sandals from the now discontinued ply line, as well as a couple extra overstock wedges. They're already made, and ready to ship within two days! [By the way, if you're waiting on custom sandals you've ordered at mohop.com and there's a shoe on Etsy that you'd rather have right away, you are absolutely welcome to exchange!]


Hey, a new post!

My Siamak has been asking me for ages to write a new post, as "hands off ladies" and his cute mug have been at the top of the blog forever now. When did March become July? And when do I get a nap?

Anyhoo, it's been insanity around here: trying to keep up with production while also trying to figure out how to make things faster (not so much luck on that end...), and generally trying to run a business. There's so much I'd love to share about what's been going on around here, and I have lots of shoe tying ideas and customer photos to share in the "fresh shoes daily" realm, but right now I must concentrate on making shoes for you fine people as fast as possible. So this is my apology for the lame blog...
However, my talented and gorgeous assistants Michelle and Sara have been doing a great job of keeping our facebook page updated. Michelle just uploaded some new photos, check them out! While you're there, I'd be thrilled if you became a fan :)

Michelle and I tag-team saw a mighty chunk of walnut into blocks for carving into high wedges.

Wishing you, dear reader, a wonderful summer! I'm off again to cobble some fancy kicks...
