When creators of the most stylish slipper known to man hinted about a kids collection at their launch last year, I was excited to say the least. Kids slippers are a bit of a bane to be honest, they’re either covered in gimmicks which become old and boring when the novelty wears off or they’re badly made. Given that I wear my beloved mahabis every day at home (and out in the garden) I couldn’t understand why anyone hadn’t already put an indoor/outdoor slipper in production for kids. It’s just common sense, right? As expected, mahabis did not disappoint and Reuben has been walking a little taller in his “grown-up slippers” since his arrived at the weekend. They share the same minimal design as their adult counterparts, they’re just a little bit smaller.
The kids collection comes in the Classic and Summer slipper design with the same choice of coloured soles to choose from – Reuben went for Gotland Green. The only difference is that the outdoor sole is perminantly attached, so you don’t have to try to put on or remove them in a rush (kids never stay still).
Sizes range from 28 to 35 (that’s UK 10 to 2.5) and there are plans to make smaller sizes soon. I’d go so far as to say that shopping for kids slippers is going to be whole lot easier from now on…don’t you think?
