THE BURKINA SANDALS

BROTHERS VELLIES Burkina Sandals

BROTHER VELLIES Sandals (also available here hereand ) // STELLA McCARTNEY Jeans 

I’ve come across a lot of really great slides this season (including these and these!), but this pair you see right here might just be the best yet. They’re called the “Burkina” (cute name, right?!) slide from new-to-me line Brother Vellies. They feature a fab, oversized bow and come in several different really fun prints (love this yellow one!), but their shining star is that they’re insanely comfortable. As in almost-too-good-to-be-true comfortable. Think: house slippers that you can actually wear out to dinner. The leather is super soft and even though the sole itself looks thin, it’s surprisingly cushion-y. I’m telling you: they’re dreamy.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love them more, I did a little research and found out that they’re eco-friendly, too. It turns out that each pair of Brother Vellies shoes (really loving this feather pair) is handmade by local artisans in Africa. They’re made using materials that have been sustainably-sourced and the production is 100% ethical. You can learn more about the mission behind the brand here. Bottom line: these sandals are a feel-good (literally, though) purchase all around.

BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE... //
