A newly minted addition to the permanent Mohinders lineup! Iron dye is colorfast and won't rub off on feet. Each pair is dyed by hand, so natural variation in color tone is to be expected.

This diamond-centric style is another design that evolved in Athani, Northern Karnataka, like the rest of our collection. Each pair is customized with all the Mohinders-specific design tweaks for cushion, ease & durability.

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

Order your true size. Size up if you’re a half size.

It’s ok if your foot is very close to the back edge when they’re brand new, as long as your heel isn’t hanging over. They’ll stretch and soften to make more room.

How does Iron-dyed leather work?

The same kind of leather has been used to make shoes in Athani for generations. It’s tanned using just a few ingredients: water, acacia tree bark, and myrobalan (the nut of a Terminalia chebula tree). Every piece of leather is infused with myrobalan, which is also a natural dye; when mixed with iron, myrobalan reacts to create a deep black. So, we can simply dip our shoe leather in water + with iron for a colorfast black dye that won’t fade or rub off.

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.
