Ok, so I’ll hold my hands up. I missed these out of my top ten and I’m happy to accept the ridicule that will come my way. Thought my ear is usually as close to the ground as my footwear, I simply wasn’t aware this brand existed. But then, why would I, they’re from South Africa. Miles away, that.
Shaka comes from a place where breathable footwear need not be technical and space-age. Taking the traditional sandals worn by natives, Shaka has found a formula which walks the fine line between heritage and modernity. Popular in Japan, obviously, you can get your pair of these from Goodhood. Again, obviously.
