New shoes

I arrived home yesterday to find a notice in the mailbox I've received a package from abroad. I rushed to the post office, 10 minutes before closing time. Luckily it's only around the corner to pick up my new vegan sandals from Mohop.
I've been coveting them since spring  when I blogged about them:
Today I covet

Mr. C who knows me all to well waited for me at home to take pictures of me as I hastened to unwrap the package and started putting them on, experimenting with various strings and techniques.

experiment no. 1

experiment no. 2

today's choice of ribbon and tying technique

The whole idea with these shoes is to use a variety of strings, loop them in any way imaginable to end up with like a gazillion options. The shoes came with 9 pairs of strings and several wooden hoops as well as some basic tying technique instructions. Pretty neat.

 We went for a walk late in the evening and  I just had to wear my new sandals. They're confortable and easy to walk in. I'm happy.

  5. So instead of one pair of shoes, you got nine or more. Now how cool is that!
    They look really cute on your feet and are definitely age-appropriate!

  7. Those are really fun. There is a shoe place in our area, not too far, with the same idea, except the soles are wood and maybe higher. I loved to have one but don't do sandals a lot because of my work. I love yours...so versatile! xx

    1. It's quite possible it's the same brand, because the started with wedges made from solid wood block. I have enough wedges as it is and as much as I'd love love to own a pair of mahogany wedges I went with flats because I needed a new pair and lickily I work in a super casual environment.
