Hand-Painted Leather "Wink" Sandal


Hand-painted leather sandals with brown leather and rubber soles handcrafted in Kenya by Ikwetta.

Sandals run a bit small/narrow.

We recommend ordering a size up for whole sizes and a size and half up for half sizes, or larger for wider feet.

Exchanges for unworn sandals due to size is completely understandable and encouraged: email us at to arrange.

Ikwetta is a brand of handcrafted leather sandals. The line is inspired by Kenya's great heritage and abundance of artisans who are skilled in the traditional Maasai beadwork. Bold colors define the brand’s aesthetic and the natural leather ages beautifully with time and wear. Ikwetta sandals are handmade locally by skilled craftsmen combining the latest innovations in footwear with traditional techniques that have existed for centuries.
