Since coming across these on the Brightside Project a couple of days back, I have been completely enamoured with these gorgeous hunks of wood...
The ingenious idea is a shoe which can be created new as often as you please just by changing the ribbon that is threaded through the base. The base itself is made from sustainably grown cherry wood, and the sole comes from recycled tire rubber.
There are a number of different base options available, and each purchase comes with five ribbons of your choice, although you can use whatever works to tie them up.
I just think they're awesome. Coupled with the fact that 'Mohop' is a totally catchy word, I have found myself more than once in the last couple of days just going 'mohop, mohop, mohop' in my head, a little crazily...
And read about the woman behind the shoes in this interesting interview: http://thegreenloopblog.com/mohop-builds-the-american-dream-shoe/237
