The best sandals come from Uganda.
I’ve been a firm believer since 2005 when I found my first pair of Ugandan sandals at a market in Kampala. Those shoes have served me well (and beautifully) for five years – and counting!
So discovering Sseko Designs confirms what I already knew was true. Their sandals are made of the same leather-and-rubber combo as my Kampala market shoes. These things are built to last. But Sseko adds a crazy-fun twist: the sandals are held on with interchangeable cloth straps, which can be tied in a variety of ways. Check out their website to see what I mean. I’m telling you. They’re the only pair of sandals you’ll ever need.
