Footwear styles, just like boyfriends, come and go. While some styles you may keep around for use every once-in-a-blue-moon, most footwear styles are seasonally appropriate. So during those winter months when you really want to rock your espadrilles because they are comfy and casual, they must stay at the back of the closet at least until the temperature begins to rise.
Well, we have good news for you. It’s officially espadrille season, because SUMMER IS HERE. This means that flats and slip-ons are taking front row in your closet. Yet, you can’t just have any slip-ons slipping onto your feet. You need the best of the best this season. That’s why we’re suggesting Kaanas Shoes as your summer selection.
Nati and Lily Acevedo launched their brand Kaanas, in order to share a story of a steadfast Colombian tribe that sustains themselves through the art of traditional weaving. The people of this tribe are known as the Wayuus. The patterns and designs used for the Kaanas collection of women’s espadrilles are directly inspired by the Wayuu’s signature weave. The handcrafted artisan women’s slip-on shoes are unique in their own right. Each skin is painted individually so that every stripe and shape is an original, making each pair of Kaanas a one-of-a-kind piece of fashion. These organic cotton shoes are the perfect complement to any resort wear outfit, making it a new must-have beach accessory.
