Sseko Designs is famous for its ribbon sandals (I love mine!) which can be tied and accented in thousands of different styles, but there are also five other sandal silhouettes to choose from for every occasion. They are made of genuine leather, rubber and microfoam and they are super comfy to wear even for a full day of teaching while 9 months pregnant. (I wasn’t exactly standing a lot at that point, but I HAVE worn them on much more active, non-pregnant days.) After almost two years of wear, they are still holding up strong and I’ve saved a lot of money and materials by not buying throwaway sandals that I get bored of in a month. Every sandal is handcrafted by women and girls in Uganda who are paid fair-trade wages and earn matching scholarships for college. Now you can even Design Your Dream Sandal and get a totally custom pair of sandals handmade for you from start to finish by our team in Uganda. Take this (totally unscientific) quiz to see which sandal style fits your personality!
Disclosure: As a Sseko Fellow, I make a commission from sales affiliated with my name. But I’m a terrible liar so I would never sell or promote any products or business models that are gross or sketchy.
