Neat! I'd encountered these before but had no money at the time. I just pledged enough to get a pair of the lows! Vegan, American-made, and ethically sourced. I dig it!

I love my Mohops! I've got a pair of their older style mid-heights, and am pledging for a pair of highs once I get paid in a couple days.

There's a post here about Annie Mohaupt and all of the setbacks she had getting her company going. She's a trouper! I hope the kickstarter is successful.

Fantastic! I ended up upping my order to include a set of sari ties as well.

Yay, thanks for posting this! I have been struggling to find vegan, ethically produced shoes down here. Mostly because I get confused and bored when trying! I got some flats. So exciting!

We are all going to be so so stylish. I also want a pair of mids, eventually, but lows are more practical for me and my ankle.

I pledged for a pair of the flats. I'm kind of sad that I can't get any of the higher ones, as I want to see how wood works in shoes, but I fail utterly at wearing heels.

This was perfect timing for me as I recently discovered that my sandals had gone horribly, horribly mouldy and I'm terrible at choosing shoes, but I like the look of these.

So glad she went so far over her goal! Now for the long, long wait for the shoes.

Mine haven't come yet and I'm so excited! However, I was reeeeeally late in getting my preferences in so I expect my order will be near the end.

I got an email yesterday that my sandals are complete! They'll take a long time to get to me though, I'm sure.

They finally arrived today!! They are they perfect size for my feet and they came with so many ribbons and rings!! I tried them on with the ribbon configuration they shipped with and they are great. The key seems to be getting the ribbons pretty tight so they hold your foot down when you walk. I've only worn them around the apartment but they seem like they'd be quite comfy. If I can ride my bike in them I'll wear them on an outing this weekend.

I have old Mohop mid-heels from a sale ages ago. Shoes with a learning curve! My first attempt to wear them was embarrassing--- I had to keep stopping and re-tying the ribbons. I've since learned to tie them TIGHT at the back, since the back loosens as you walk but the front tightens. I've yet to try wearing them with tights or leg warmers like the Mohop models, but I like the idea.

I don't care for grosgrain ribbon, so I've used the ribbon sets for tying up presents and knitted long ties with a knitting doll/knitting spool/knitting nelly thingy.

Summer sale! The flat sandals are down to $36, and for the first time I've ever seen they're Not sold out of recycled sari ties.

Their gallery always makes me think "yeah, I'm cool enough to wear leg warmers and tights with my sandals!" but I never actually try it.

I know! I love that look in their photos! But I don't know if I could pull it off.
