We've hit the affordable, handcrafted jackpot. In our continued support of Black Footwear Designers, we came upon Kwame Baah Brands (thanks Facebook ads) and his highly affordable, handcrafted, Kente print and woven sandals and sneakers. One look at the super cute Kwame Baah Fryie Sandals and you see why it stopped us while we were scrolling our timeline. These easy, slip-on-sandals feature a Kente print fabric, perfect to add a pop of color to your wardrobe or celebrate the ancestors. The cotton upper keeps these casual sandals comfortable, while the rubber soles made from recycled tires keep the style environmentally friendly. Each shoe also boasts a soft and comfortable insole that molds to your feet over time. This particular silhouette is available in a solid black so those who prefer to be less bold, but it the prints, like the above Fryie, and the below Dunu (green/gold Kente print) and Waaba (orange/red/blue Kente print) that steals our hearts.

Apart from these being beautiful, they are amazing affordable. All three styles are currently on sale for $15.00-$20.00 each on beauty and price is just one of the things that make this label amazing.

Founded by George Kwame Baah, an engineer from Akim-Oda, Ghana, wanted an avenue to help raise his family and hometown out of poverty. He train artisans from his hometown and nearby regions to make sandals and accessories following his own designs. They currently have eleven artisans that handcraft their shoes and accessories in Ghana, providing a living wage that has improved their lives.
