Design

To celebrate handcrafted genius in 2022, the Explorer Slip-on Sandal sits among our shoes as a brand new iconic silhouette. Taken from original designs that have been present since decades ago. The Explorer Slip-on has strong features in the construction and elaborated artisanal design process.

To start, the Explorer Slip-on has a large whole-cut leather as the primary piece for the shoe taken only from the best, unblemished, and structurally immaculate pieces of full grain leather that Mikoleon has produced.

To achieve such dedication to the integrity of product quality and refinement of aesthetics, all leather taken for this style is carefully curated by the artisans in order to eliminate from the production any pieces that don’t hold to the highest of standards for the entire cut. Visually, the leathers for these shoes are dense cowhides rich with an elusive but warm patina appearance.

Features

Truly, the Explorer Slip-on sits in a group of its own as artisanal curation of the best materials. Vintage hardware. Vegetable-tanned leather soles, rubber slip guards, memory foam insoles, and leather interior tie the shoe into a timeless, innovative, and classic collection.

MEASURE FIRST: Always measure first with socks and find your size using our Size Chart. Sizes fit true to size and they are American Medium Width. We don't make half sizes if you wear a 7.5 size up to an 8. 

One free size exchange is available for adult shoes.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally
