Hilltribe Jungle Shoes
These beautiful and unusual sandals are handmade by the Hmong Hill tribe who live on the Thai/Burmese border. We have worked closely with them to develop an ethical brand of footwear which is stylish and practical whether your adventures take you to cities or jungles. We call these sandals ' Jungle Shoes '.
Having a rounded toe, these colourful Mary Jane style shoes are both extremely comfortable AND pretty. The Hmong fabric is recycled from clothing and wall decorations and the cotton is variously embellished with traditional hand cross-stitch, intricate embroidery, batik or sumptuous velvet, ensuring each pair of shoes is unique. The soft suede leather lining keeps your feet cool and comfy and conforms to the shape of your foot. The tough, flexible sole ensures a firm footing whatever the terrain. The sealed hemp trim gives the appearance of an espadrille, however unlike espadrilles, Jungle Shoes will not soak up water on a rainy day, meaning you can wear them in spring, summer, autumn and winter! Jungle Shoes are so easy to wear, they feel like slippers for outdoors!
Jungle Shoes come in sizes UK3 up to UK9, with half sizes in between, however they are uniquely sized in centimetres..see our sizing page for details.
We maintain fair-trade principles through long-term relationships with our suppliers.

Shoes for Vegans
As a progressive company, we respect the fact that more and more people don't want to wear leather, we have therefore created our vegetarian / vegan version of Jungle Shoes.
