Summer days call for flats. All kinds of flats. To pair with everything from cut-off shorts to an off-shoulder dress.
ONE / the ROPE
From the collaboration between Elin Klingʼs Tôteme NYC and Gurkeeʼs, a rope sandal handmade by American artisans in West Virginia. No glue or stitching involved. (€80 TÔTEME NYC + GURKEEʼS)
TWO / the BABOUCHES
Picture this pair of Brother Velliesʼ babouches with a white linen kaftan. Tempting, right? The brand is committed not only with the best sustainable practices, minimizing production impact on environment, but also with empowering people and local economy in several African countries. ($265 BROTHER VELLIES)
THREE / the ESPADRILLES
A summer classic is always a good idea. Especially when the fabric used to produce it is ethically handmade in Ethiopia, where supermodel Liya Kebede was born. Kebede and her brand Lemlem are engaged with providing maternity care to women in Africa. (€67.95 LEMLEM + SOLUDOS)
FOUR / the SLIDES
A sleek, minimal design from Everlane, which will go well with pretty much every summer outfit. These slides are made in a small factory in Italy, using vegetable-tanned leather i.e. chromium-free. ($98 EVERLANE)
