Summertime Sseko Sandals

How cool are these shoes?! Sseko sandals can be tied into over a dozen different styles so that you can wear them however suits you on any given day. Jenny discovered them at a wedding last week where all the bridesmaids were sporting them, aren't they cute and fun?

Wait, it get's better. They are made by women in Uganda who are in their "gap year" between high school and college and need to save money to pay for their tuition. Watch the video below to learn more about why there aren't many economic opportunities for women in this stage and how these shoes enable Ugandan women to get higher education.

They are offering free shipping until Monday on orders over $65 with the code "birthdaylove" so get shopping!


  1. Wow, very cool! However, I'm not terribly coordinated with clothing, I feel like I would master 1, MAYBE 2 styles and just stick with that rather than untie to try something new every time.

    1. I was thinking the same thing Michelle! I'm so tempted to buy them but I'm not really a DIY-type girl. :)

  2. How fun!!! Affordable and a great story as well. Thanks for sharing!
