Established in 2005 by architect Annie Mohaupt, Mohop is an eco-friendly footwear company that specializes in interchangeable shoes, which allow customers to choose from nearly infinite design options with just one pair of soles.
A socially-conscious company, Mohop ensures that all of its collections are produced with sustainably-sourced, recycled, and/or fair-trade materials. Each collection is produced by Annie and her team of talented artisans in Chicago.
Dubbed the ‘infinity sandal,’ Mohop’s innovative shoe comes with interchangeable ribbon ties of different lengths and styles to create a variety of custom-fit looks with only one pair of Mohop’s vegan and eco-friendly soles. Handmade from scratch in USA, Mohop shoes come with 7 sets of ribbons, as well as inspiration cards illustrating several ways to style them.
Best of all, Mohop shoes provide the utmost level of ergonomic comfort and are meant to be worn frequently. The curved shape of the footbed provides even support along the length of the foot, alleviating the typical fatigue points at the heel or ball of the foot. Mohop’s proprietary elastic loops allow the ribbon ties to move with the foot, eliminating the blisters and chafing associated with most new sandals.
Mohop has partnered with Jhoole, a non-profit social enterprise in India, to create beautiful recycled saree ties. Each pair of saree ties is a one-of-a-kind product handmade by women who earn fair-trade wages so their children can attend school, with the goal of ending the cycle of poverty in their family and community.
Jhoole is currently building a beautiful, eco-friendly, energy-neutral training center that will allow Jhoole to work with more than 500 women in Maheshwar, India. All proceeds from the sale of the ties go to the construction and outfitting of a computer lab, as well as the salary of a lab instructor, for this new training center.
Design with Benefits features Mohop’s Moped collection, a line of handmade flexible-sole wedges, and the Besoke line of hand-shaped wood-soled shoes.
Designed for your creative sole, Mohop sandals are environmentally friendly, comfortable, and best of all, infinitely versatile.
