I recently received a pair of Mahabis slippers. I originally came across them while browsing Facebook and saw an ad for them multiple times. Eventually, I succumbed to the temptation and pulled the trigger to buy a pair and now Mahabis has sent me their new Mahabis Breathe slipper to get my thoughts. What made the original Mahabis 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. All of the Mahabis slippers are made with sustainability in mind which means most of the materials are eco-friendly and recyclable.

Mahabis are made in London and look upscale. The Mahabis breathe retail for $109.  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.

Make sure you try them on inside to ensure you have the right fit and you are happy with the look. You have 30 days to figure out if they are right for you, if not you can initiate a return from their website where they will pay for return shipping. Just note that they will not accept returns for slippers that are worn.

Construction of the Mahabis Slippers

  • Made in Portugal and China
  • Tencel’s cellulosic fibres of botanic origin. this 100% natural lyocell fibre is created naturally and using the latest technology keeps your feet feeling fresh.
  • Hybrid EVA sole has been engineered with our responsibly sourced Pura-Latex™ rubber mixed with 5% cornflower to reduce environmental impact.
  •  Cooling cork feature. the footbed is created using natural cork, which makes the wearer feel as though they’re walking in bare feet and regulates foot temperature in warmer seasons/ climates.

My Mahabis Findings

I ideally wear a size 12.5 US. However, they don’t come in half sizes so I bought size 13 which felt slightly large. Since they are slippers,  I don’t expect too snug a fit.

As you can see they have a mesh design for ultimate breathability.

The sole is made with latex and cornflower to make it more sustainable. Adding latex costs more but latex is a very durable material and it provides good grip to surfaces.

I was worried at first that the cork sole liner would be too firm. I found it very comfortable for everyday tasks and running errands. I certainly wouldn’t bring these on a long hike but they are perfect for everyday use.

My Mahabis Recommendation

Mahabis provides some of the most ethically made slippers you can buy. On top of that, they are very comfortable and had a unique design you won’t find anywhere else. They are just as breathable as a flip flop but more fashionable. They are the perfect accessory for your summer wardrobe.

  1. You don’t say anything about how they feel. Are they cushy? Feel like memory foam? What are they padded with?

    1. They are cushy but don’t have a memory foam feel. I like how they grip your heel so they don’t come loose easily.

  2. How cushy? Do they provide sufficient cushioning from the hard floor?

    1. Yes, I walk on wood floors with them and they feel just fine although there are other slippers out there with more cushioning if that’s your primary need. The advantage of these is that they have the removable sole.

  3. What are they cushioned with?

    1. I believe it’s a thin layer of memory foam.

  4. LOVE the idea, but…Is there any arch support in these slippers?

    1. Not a lot. It’s mostly flat.

  5. I’ve seen other reports that they don’t hold up well. Are you still using them? Are they still together?

    1. I’m not using them much anymore. The button in the back was king of cumbersome to snap on so I just stopped taking off the sole which defeats the purpose.
