Long banished as a faux pas that could have those daring enough to try it arrested by the fashion police, socks with sandals are now one of the hottest looks of the season! Why the change of heart? Well, with our not so sunny economy and fashion focusing (ironically) on moving away from fads and working with what we already own, looks that extend the lifecycles of our clothes make a lot of sense. Not to mention that once you try it, it looks really cute. Who better to show us how to green this inherently eco-conscious trend than the makers of the revolutionary Mohop sandal? Dubbed the ‘infinity sandal’, these wooden platform footbeds with sturdy rivets allow you to loop in any ribbon you want, turning these smart shoes into thousands of different pairs!

How do Mohops work? Different lengths and styles of ribbons can be used to achieve a virtually infinite number of looks with just one pair of wooden soles. That means that Mohops are not only friendly on the pocket, they’re friendly on the environment too – think about how much less money and energy must be spent to make just one pair of shoes compared to 5, 10, 20 or 100! Plus each pair is individually handmade by designer and owner Annie Mohaupt in her studio in Chicago.

And now that the weather is getting chillier, stretch the window of time you can wear your Mohops even further by pairing them with tights, legwarmers and socks. Some tips to mastering this look? Combine opaque tights in rich colors like mustard yellows and royal purples with contrasting ribbons on your Mohops. Layer chunky legwarmers on top of sheer tights, covering the tops of your feet slightly just like a pair of straightleg jeans would for flattering, leg-lengthening styling. Last but not least, give your funkiest pattern socks a chance to shine by wearing them under your Mohops instead of hidden away underneath boots.

    Have long been a fan of Mohop sandals – they are gorgeous and the sculptural heel is divine. Formed to fit the natural curve of the foot, they really are incredibly comfortable. So fun to reinvent your shoe daily, key for fashion emergencies!
