Forget flimsy flip flops this summer. These genuine leather topsole sandals by Sseko Designs feature durable rubber soles, a heel wedge lift and a micro foam layer that forms to your foot. Comfortable shoes that you can actually walk around AND look cute in? That’s not the only reason to love these sandals. With removable ties and five different loops, there are endless typing possibilities. Literally, you can wear your Sseko sandals hundreds of ways (check out their style gallery for inspiration). 

Sseko Designs is based in Uganda, where they help young women achieve their dreams of attending college by providing them with a way to earn income for tuition.

Might this be the perfect summer tote? Made of vegan patent leather, it’s roomy enough to stash all your daily essentials for the office or the beach. With extra long handles, you can even toss in your yoga mat! The neon hue adds the perfect pop of color to this season’s neutrals. 

A mochila is a typical bag to carry in Colombia (even men wear them!), but these way cool options from Miss Mochila take the traditional styles to the next level. Handwoven by the Wayuu tribe in South America, the bright hues and one-of-a-kind patterns will instantly brighten any ensemble.
