I recently purchased a pair of Mahabis slippers. I came across them while browsing Facebook and saw an ad for them multiple times. Eventually I succumbed to the temptation and pulled the trigger. What makes them unique is that they have a removable tread. This means when you go outside you can put on the tread so you don’t dirty the slipper and then take it off when you go back inside so you don’t get your house dirty. They also have different color soles and slippers that you can mix and match to make your own unique look.
Mahabis are made in London and look upscale. They currently sell for $99 for the classic and $187 for the luxe. The difference is that the slipper part of the leather Luxe is made of leather. I prefer cloth so I purchased the regular Mahabis. Even though I live in the United States it didn’t take that long for my slippers to arrive. Just over a week and they were at my door.
The come nicely packaged and would make a great Christmas gift. Here’s a picture of the box and packaging:
Below is a video of me unboxing the Mahabis.
I ideally wear a size 12.5 US. However, they don’t come in half sizes so I bought size 13 which felt a little big. That’s acceptable since they are slippers and I don’t expect too snug a fit. I was really excited to try the detachable soles. Below is a picture of how this all works. Basically you just slide the front of the slipper into the sole then step down and button the back.
These aren’t as easy to attach as I thought they would be. It took a while to figure out and it wasn’t something I could do with one hand which was disappointing. Maybe I need to break them in a little or just need more practice but the hole feels off center so it can be hard to snap into place.
The bottom of the slipper also has its own sole which is meant to be used indoors only.
As you can see below, there is a lip on the back where the heel is. I really like this feature as it keeps your feet from slipping out and makes it easy to put the Mahabis on. You can also see what the outer sole looks like from above. It is off center from the whole slipper. It is something to get used to since I kept thinking I put them on wrong.
Here’s a picture of me wearing the Mahabis. They can pass for casual shoes if you are in a rush or just out running errands.
I love the idea of these slippers, it makes me wonder why I didn’t think of them. I often wear my slippers when taking out the trash or getting mail. I never liked the fact that I would trail dirt into my house because of it, defeating the purpose of having slippers. Mahabis give you all the comfort of slippers with the convenience of a detachable sole for running errands or just stepping out of the house for a bit. I think they are a very worthwhile investment for people who wear slippers often and live a more casual lifestyle.
