i ((heart)) my sseko's

We're going to move things around a little bit! This week's sponsor highlight + giveaway will be on Thursday, along with last week's giveaway winner! There's still time to enter :)

---

When I find a product this great...I just can't keep it to myself!


Sseko's have been on my radar for a while now, but I just got around to buying a pair for myself...and let me just say

I

LOVE

THEM.

Here's why:
1. The quality is incredible. Seriously, the shoe is super sturdy and the loops are too
3. You can buy extra ((WAY affordable)) straps & replace them as your heart desires
4. They're WAY comfortable
5. It is an incredible cause

From Sseko Designs' "story" page
"Sseko Designs is a not-just-for-profit enterprise that recognizes the power of business and responsible consumerism to support sustainable economic development, which in turn affects a country's educational, justice, and health care systems. The goal of Sseko Designs is two-fold: provide university tuition for these promising young women through a sustainable monthly income, while also contributing to the overall economic development of Uganda."

I bought two straps ((the above brown ones and the below robin's egg blue ones)) and then made a pair with some extra fabric I had from a custom order. 
These sandals are so versatile!


So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Sseko Designs and get yourself a pair. They are *perfect* for summer and you just can't go wrong with these pretty sandals!

((FYI: I went down a whole size from what I wear in close-toed shoes and they were a perfect fit!))

love.

  5. I like the brown strap. You did a great job reviewing them for us-the size thing would be a really unpleasant surprise if we ordered our normal size. They look great on you too!
    xo,

  7. (That previous post was from me. Forgot to log out of her username. Sorry, Linds. haha) This is an amazing cause, and I can't wait to order some of my own once my preggo feet have stopped being swollen and I know what size shoe I wear again! ;)
