These lightweight leather sandals sparkle with silver-hued glass beads handcrafted by members of Kenya’s Maasai tribe, for whom beadwork is an important part of the culture. Kenyan brides wear beaded necklaces that have been passed down through generations, and young male warriors are adorned in many beaded accessories. The leather lining and sole mold to your foot. Rubber outsole with an EVA cushion.


Handcrafted in Malindi, Keyna. Leather upper with EVA outsole. Women's European sizes 37-40.


The Maasai live in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, where they’ve herded cattle for centuries. All members of the Maasai but the youngest boys wear beaded accessories such as headdresses, belts, bracelets, and arm bands. Women also wear large, flat collars, sometimes several at a time. Women string glass seed beads in a variety of colors—preferences vary throughout the Maasai’s region—on sinew or wire to construct geometric patterns and sculptural, structured designs.


Beadwork has always been important to Maasai culture. Brides wear necklaces that have been passed down from mothers and grandmothers, and the young men who serve as warriors are often adorned in many beaded accessories at once.


When contact with Europeans increased during the 20th century, these beaded accessories served as valuable trade goods and it’s around this time that the colors of the beads came to take on symbolic meaning, mostly inspired by the Maasai’s agrarian lifestyle. Blue is the sky and green is the land. Orange and yellow are colors of hospitality. Red signifies danger and strength, but because it is the color of the blood shed by cows that are slaughtered for celebrations, it also symbolizes community.
