You’ve heard the saying before, that shoes can make or break your outfit, right? Well, with these hot African-inspired footwear, you will definitely be the center of attention everywhere you go!
Here are our top picks for African-inspired shoes:
Osborn– Osborn shoes, in collaboration with Boxing Kitten, designed these colorful Ankara shoes. You can dress them down with jeans or cut-off denim shorts to keep them the focal point of any outfit, or you could always slip on a floaty dress for that chic, ‘cute without trying’ look.
Aldo Ankara Shoes– Spotted on everyone from Nicole Ari Parker to tons of bloggers (I need a pair myself), these hot wedges were made for your feet!
Dries Van Noten– With quite a hefty price tag of $680, it might take us a few months to save up for these pumps, but they are so worth it for date night. Don’t you agree?
Mo Saique– This luxury shoe brand by Afua Dabanka mixes European sophistication with a touch of Africa. We love the cute ankara bows on these royal blue flats. They’re perfect to spice up a work outfit.
Betty Muller– If you’re into wedges, you may opt for these Betty Muller shoes.
Ohema Ohene– And for the gentlemen — no, we didn’t forget about you — here are some kicks from Ghana–London based brand, Ohema Ohene.
K1X– The German basketball label, K1x, has an ongoing collaboration with local designers in Sierra Leone, where these Ankara sneakers are produced. Pick up a pair for your man. I’m sure all his friends will be asking where he got them.
