Mohinders x Sean Spellman: Men's City Slippers

$185.00

We met Westerly, Rhode Island-based artist and musician Sean Spellman at one of our favorite festivals, Mercado Sagrado. We admired his minimalist yet playful collection of paintings, and he admired (and bought a pair of) Mohinders. Soon after, he had the brilliant idea of using a heated tool to burn his designs into the upper of our slides. He gave it a try…and it worked!

We’ll release 25 pairs of Sean Spellman x Mohinders City Clippers in this limited collaboration. Each pair is a unique composition featuring Sean’s signature depictions—a rolling sea, a golden sunset, traditional abstractions in minimalist forms.

Pairs are made-to-order and will take a minimum of a two weeks between ordering to arrival.

    Don't worry if they feel like they're slipping off at first; within a few wears the leather will form to your feet and they'll stay on.


    A note about the break-in | Our leather goes from raw hide to leather in a cleaner, small-scale artisan tanning process. It’s stiff, like raw denim, so the upper has a bite at first; after a few wears, they will soften.

    If you have wide feet | these may feel too narrow or a squeeze at first, but give them a few wears—they should also widen to your foot size.

Size Guide / Wool Slippers

The felted wool in our Wool Slippers add a layer of coziness. Take a full size up, and good news: you don’t need to break-in quite like our usual leather slides and shoes. For example, if you’re normally a 6, order a 7.

If you are normally a half size, take one size up. For example, if you’re normally a 7.5, order an 8.

After a few days of wear, toe box and footbed will mold to your foot for the perfect fit.

Sourcing + Discovery

We were dreaming of a Mohinders slipper, with a built-in layer of warmth. Then last year, we learned about a centuries-old tradition of Kashmiri felted wool. This kind of wool has been cultivated and made into rugs (called Namdas), saddle blankets and cloth since the 11th century.

We connected with Arifa Jan, a textile expert and activist based in Kashmir, who has taken up the work of reviving the regional art of felted wool. Arifa and the artisan communities she works with provide this beautifully undyed felt to the master shoemakers in Athani, to line each pair of The Wool Slipper.

What Makes The Wool Slipper Special

The key feature for maximum coziness: a layer of undyed, 100% handmade felted wool. The wool is sourced from Merino sheep that are raised in the Himalayan hillside villages of Sonamarg, Pahalgam and Tangmarg. When the artisans shear and felt a batch of wool, it’s never dyed; so the color of felt that lines your slippers is the exact color of the sheep’s fleece – making each pair unique. This also means that your felted wool may vary in tone, from soft oatmeal to smoky grey.

A Light Break-in Period

Because of the added soft layer of felt, The Wool Slippers don’t need a break-in quite like our usual leather slippers and slides. So while it won’t take long, you can still expect to give them a bit of love to make them your own, resulting in your own custom and toasty warm footbed. Allow a few days for the top of your slide to soften and form to fit your foot exactly as they should, cozily.
