Does anyone know of a flat synthetic slipper that is still made? I am essentially looking for a synthetic/non leather moccasym.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help =)

Never mind, I guess the Stonelands slipper is still leather. Weird, doesn't really feel like it.

Steph Davis is currently working with Evolv on a synthetic slipper similar to the Moccasym:

The older grey evolv rave and the five ten anasazi slipper were a couple of shoes I used to love. Really comfortable.

Hard to find a good all around synthetic slipper anymore, I've bought a bunch of them. I've never climbed in Red Chili but saw those Nachos in person just yesterday, the construction looks good. Looking forward to the evolv offering.

I think there might be a photo of the prototype on her latest blog post. I posted a comment there for confirmation:

Any reason for synthetic besides a "vegan" option?

Potential advantages - less stretch, won't get stiff after repeated wettings, more abrasion resistant

Possible downsides - stink, less breathable, less "mold to fit"

Valid points actually. Never had the chance to try out a moc (scared I'm going to get the wrong size post stretch and be fucked)
