Swap your stilettos for some san-dals

SANDAL / KICKSTARTER

The Kickstarter campaign behind the brand San-dal has been a great success among those in the know, with almost £100,000 raised for San bushmen through sales. One of the oldest cultures on Earth, this Kalahari tribe originally developed this footwear as a means of protecting their feet against the hot and thorny sand when hunting animals. They are completely natural, made from ethically sourced eland skin sealed with beeswax. Handmade, durable and designed so that they mould to your feet, these simple shoes could spark a new fashion trend for 2017. Be sure to get your hands on a pair soon, though, as only a few thousand are made each year. Profits are reinvested into the community, allowing for a circular economy.
