Designed in collaboration with actress & activist Sophia Bush, the Espresso & Silver Crossover Slide is the ideal slip-on sandal for any warm-weather adventurer! While visiting the Sseko workshop in Uganda, we got to sit down with Sophia and design her dream sandal! The result? This beautiful slip-on slide, handcrafted from genuine espresso brown leather and bright silver milled leather. The sandal's simplistic crossover design is breezy enough for the beach, but sturdy enough for all your excursions!
Handmade in Uganda by women working to pursue university and overcome poverty
These sandals run narrow but the leather will stretch to accommodate wider feet over time. If you have a wide foot, we recommend sizing up.
Sseko Sandals are produced in Uganda and help enable young women to attend university. Sseko hires academically gifted young women during the nine month gap between secondary school and university to earn money that will go directly towards their education. At the end of their nine month term, Sseko will match 100% of their savings with a college scholarship.
In addition to providing opportunity to college-bound students, Sseko employs women from all walks of life who are ending the cycle of poverty. By wearing Sseko Sandals, you're providing opportunity and making a direct impact in the life of a woman. Sseko sandals and accents are made with material sourced locally from the East African region. You can learn more about our social impact by visiting our “Mission & Impact” page under “Our Story”.
