I know it might be unusual to buy wooden sandals from a stranger on the internet. Are the shoes comfy, is Annie responsive to questions, is it possible to walk in these things?*

I haven't made a product review/testimonial page on mohop.com, as 1) I don't know really how to do that and 2) the only thing I would know how to do is make a list quotes from customer emails, and that seems weird to me. But, there is currently feedback from over 100 customers at Etsy.com, so if you're the type of person who likes to do a bit of research before you make an important purchase (and aren't shoes so important?), then check out the comments here!

*the answer is emphatically yes ;)


Socks + Sandals

So, it's that time of year again where I start campaigning about the awesomeness of wearing sandals with socks, tights, legwarmers and other lower leg accoutrements. We still have a good two months more of summer weather here in Chicago if the pattern of the last couple of years continues (just ask my husband, who's been running the marathon here in early October in stifling heat...), but I just want to emphasize that Mohops are great to wear pretty much year round!
Socks and Sandals Bot agrees!

(I have a bunch of bots from the Robot a Day collection, they're all lined up on my desk looking at me right now.)


Yay, thong shoes!

We've introduced a new style of shoes this morning, available exclusively on Etsy! I've been putting off creating a thong sandal for ages because I'm one of those people who hates anything between my toes. But these are comfy for even the thong-averse because the shoe can be tied so that there's no pulling or abrasion between the toes. Seriously, they're really comfy! And of course you can wear them like flip-flops, or tie them around your ankles for a completely different look.

I've strived to make this new line as budget-friendly as possible, and with all the different ways the shoes can be tied, I really do think they are a great value (especially when I know how many hours of painstaking labor go into each pair! ;_) ) If you tie your shoes in the nine ways shown above, that's only $10 a pair for artisan shoes - and that's just the tip of the iceberg for styling options! [Yeah, I'm really excited about these new sandals!] Your order comes with an ispiration booklet with illustrated instructions for 10 different styles of shoes to get you started.

By the way, there's only a couple days left in the Facebook tying contest! There's some really amazing designs there, check it out!
