Mukasuns make you feel good.
Mukasuns are made of comfortable, hand-woven wool and other upcycled materials – creating a wonderfully cozy “slipper sock” with leather sole that can be worn around the house, at the beach, on the plane or just hanging out on the couch. Each pair is carefully woven together by the Hazara tribespeople of northern Afghanistan, who employ a quality of craftsmanship that inherits techniques used in legendary rug making. So grab a pair and give your feet some love. Whenever you slip into Muks, life just feels really good!

What’s the history?
The beauty of the Hazara’s handiwork is their ability to adapt available materials like local sheep’s wool, leather and colorful winter sweaters to a practical need – but to do so with caring hands that knit hundreds of years of tradition into every sock. This makes each pair of Mukasuns both unique in design and inherently special: you’ll be wearing protective footwear made by a mountain people who have witnessed legendary crusades, the rise and fall of empires and the very forging of the Silk Road, over which today’s modern caravans of trucks and the occasional nomad continue to travel. Mukasuns are history in the making, made to make you feel good. Click below to learn more.
