Woven Sandal / Oiled Leather


Minimalist, lightweight and made to travel with you for years to come. Each pair is hand-oiled with a blend of plant-based oils, beeswax, and propolis, so natural variation in color tone is to be expected.

Each pair is made by master shoemakers in the shoes’ town of origin: Athani, India. The leather keeps getting softer, richer, and custom-formed to your foot the more you wear them.

Details / Iron-dye

Every pair is dyed by hand in a simple process using water + iron. The myrobalan in our leather reacts with iron for a colorfast black, which won’t rub off on your feet or fade over time. Iron-dyed shoes can be easily re-conditioned at home to restore the deepest black; some natural variation in color tone is to be expected.

  • Natural iron-dye process: nothing synthetic, no hard-to-pronounce chemicals
  • Colorfast black won’t rub off on feet
  • Full-grain water buffalo leather molds to your feet over time for the perfect fit
  • Cushioned footbed
  • Soft leather lining
  • Stacked leather midsole
  • Durable, grippy crepe rubber sole
  • Styles with a back are great for long days of exploring
Size Guide / Slides + City Slippers

Slides fit true to size, take your normal shoe size.

If you are normally a half size, take one size up. For example, if you’re normally a 9.5, order a 10.

Once you put a few miles on them the toe box and footbed will mold to your foot for the perfect fit.

How does oiled leather work?

Every pair is oiled by hand using a Obenauf’s Leather Oil—a blend of plant-based oils, beeswax, and propolis. Several well-applied coats turn our water buffalo leather a deep chocolate shade. This kind of leather has been used to make shoes in Athani for generations; it’s tanned nearby in a small batch traditional process that makes for beautiful, high quality leather; the oil adds a rich color that lasts well over time.

Where are they made?

We believe in products with a sense of place. Mohinders are made by master shoemakers in Athani, India, whose designs are iconic to the surrounding region: Northern Karnataka. Follow our off-the-beaten-path journey through Karnataka’s red-rock climbing walls, cave temples, and outdoor sandal markets along the way.
