When Michael, the leading guy behind the brand, visited India years ago, he came back with a pair of shoes that changed his life- the inspiration to start a business. 

Fast forward to today, Mohinders is based in Outer Sunset and partners with third-generation master shoemakers to bring timeless style to the modern world using ancient practices that favor weaving (no chemical glue!) and a natural dying process that uses only 3 elements: nuts, tree bark, and water.

Besides the sustainable practices, we love the simple silhouette. Thanks to their slim profile, they’re also perfect to pack. Wear with denim or a cropped pant, and as the weather cools, don’t be afraid to style them with socks-- it’s one of our favorite trends this season.
