The best slippers for runners: Mahabis review
Mahabis is an award-winning footwear brand known for innovation – creating eco-friendly premium slippers for men and women. As a runner, you not only need comfortable running shoes but also shoes that you can wear outside of running which offer the same comfort and keep you ready for your runs and training.
You also want something light and breathable – a shoe that has a sneaker-like sole and works well during a stretching session or just a warm down after a long run.
My Mahabis slippers review
Well, this is where Mahabis comes in. The UK-based trendy slipper brand recently sent me two pairs of breath slippers, which are super comfortable, lightweight, and breathable – for just $109 – or even less (depending on the specific style).
I also really love their beautiful and fashionable designs. As you can see below, they are nice and chic, making them stand out and feel unique. Simply enough, they are not your ordinary pair of slippers.
All Mahabis products are made with sustainability in mind, which means most of the materials are eco-friendly, organic, and made from recycled materials.
From what I’ve seen, there aren’t many brands on the same playing field as Mahabis when it comes to the combination of actual all-day comfort and a focus on sustainability. Check them out here.
Slipper with maximum comfort
On top of that, they are very comfortable and have a unique design you won’t find anywhere else. Mahabis slippers are the perfect type of shoe to wear after a hard run when you just want your feet to relax.
Mahabis’ slippers gently compress my sore and tired feet which makes them perfect for post-running activities or even just relaxing around my apartment and hanging out with my dog Cooper.
The breathe footbed is created using natural cork, which makes me feel like I’m walking barefoot. It’s actually pretty wild! And they use environmentally-friendly materials that contribute to Mahabis’ focus of working toward a more sustainable future, which is more important now than ever.
They are just as breathable as a flip flop but more stylish and a perfect accessory for warmer days. Mahabis is also perfect for everyday relaxation and to put on after workouts.
As you know, I’m training for the NYC Marathon and these are perfect to wear after long runs. In fact, after putting them on, I forget I’m even wearing them! It’s just really easy to go about my day in these while allowing your feet to feel super comfortable all day.
Mahabis is planting one tree for every pair of slippers sold. On top of that, they are offsetting the personal and professional carbon footprint of their team to create a climate positive workforce (UK-only).
In 2020 they completely redesigned their packaging, creating something that is beautifully designed and made from recycled materials while using 30% fewer materials than their previous packaging.
