"Like wearing sparkly gemstones on your feet!" is how this style has been described. The three circles elongate the look of the foot and the single, soft leather straps ensure an easy fit. While the leather ankle straps are super fashionable, they are primarily cosmetic and can be removed if you’d rather just slip your foot in and go. If you’re on the narrow side, the ankle strap can help make the sandals more secure. This style is equally popular as a wedge or a flat.
Global Girls sandals are entirely handcrafted by skilled artisans in East Africa. The beadwork on the shoes is hand-done primarily by women, though there are talented men beaders as well.
Global Girls' mission is to support African women and promote the traditional crafts they make by providing much-needed jobs at living wages. We're excited to be creating an international marketplace for the handmade sandals and other unique fashion accessories made by artisans.
Global Girls strives to encourage self-sustainability specifically among women and to develop income generating opportunities especially for the disenfranchised. For example, in Kibera, Africa's second largest slum and home to approximately one million people, Global Girls works with women who make our horn and bone jewelry.
