My Jesus Sandals

A year ago, I wrote a post at the Green Phone Booth about needing new flip flops/sandals, and a reader recommended Sseko Shoes. I instantly fell in love with the concept - handmade by young women in Africa who need money for college, Sseko sandals combine a leather sole with interchangeable fabric straps that can be tied in as many ways as you can come up with. My sister calls them Jesus Sandals.

Last year, I didn't have the money for new sandals, so I suffered through my old dirty Simple flip flops for one more year. But this year I was able to splurge!

Here are a few ways I've tied my Ssekos:

These sandals are not cheap (relatively speaking - remember I am the Conscious Shopper), but because you can change out the straps and tie them in different ways, you can feel like you have multiple pairs of sandals when you really only have one.

Note though: If I ever buy them again, I will size down. Unfortunately, Ssekos don't come in half sizes.


  1. Those look awesome! I just poked around the website. That is funny that they have a wedding line though. :)

  2. Looks fabulous!I think this sandal design looks different and more attractive.
