Missibaba Men’s Leather Sandals For Stiaan Louw

Missibaba - Espinsands

Granted when it comes to women’s footwear there is so much more to choose from than men’s, and with the mercury rising as summer approaches people will be looking towards a more relaxed laidback approach, especially if lucky enough to go on holiday. So if you are a guy shopping for yourself or a woman looking to spoil your man, then South African luxury leather accessories brand Missibaba is branching into men’s accessories with a new range of men’ leather sandals that I spotted on the blog, Man of the Cloth .Created for South African fashion designer Stiaan Louw’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection, the leather sandals are perfect for the lazy summer days ahead.

With all the signature hallmarks of Missibaba’s style, the leather sandals have yellow suede inners and come in colours ways of charcoal or pale camel and charcoal. There is also a more colourful pair of Espisands sandals in pale camel and grey/blue leather with bold red and blue zigzag sides also in leather. Available in sizes 7(42)-11(46), the sandals are made-to-order via the Missibaba website and if you need some cues on how to wear them, then look to menswear designer Stiaan Louw’s recent fashion show where models wore the sandals to accessorize the collection… very nice!

  • Eight years ago I started a blog as a place to document the interesting things I was discovering with regards to the design and creativity emerging from Africa. From the moment I created my first blog post little did I know where the journey would take me. Fast-forward to present day I have not only been privileged to witness the development of an industry, but to also have an active role in creating awareness about it.

On this journey, I have seen Africa’s design industry grow from a handful of names from a handful countries to a continent wide-reach. Some names that were just starting out have become internationally respected leaders in their field, whilst behind them, a new generation of names are coming up and claiming their place in the industry.

To say that it is an exciting time for African design and creativity would be a gross understatement! We are in a time of rapid advancement and unbridled creative expression, that is setting the foundations and standards for future generations to build on. And like many other emerging industries in Africa, creativity is opening up opportunities to those who are willing to seize them. And seizing them designers are!

And as Atelier Fifty Five begins a new chapter it is an opportunity for me to renew my commitment to supporting the development of the African design industry and helping those I work with and write about, and work with to fulfill their potential for creating world-class brands. 
I invite you to visit our website to discover more. [Link in bio]
