The Akonmi CollectionCreating beauty out of tragedy.
We have designed Africa’s first foldable ballerina flat that is fashionable, comfortable and so convenient that they can fold up and fit inside a small handbag, office drawer or the glove compartment of a car.
Each purchase results in shared profits for designers who were crowd sourced or selected as brand ambassadors. In addition, a percentage of corporate profits will support charitable causes in Africa.
We only make a limited number of shoes per style per collection and we don't re-release them. So each pair is a limited edition. If you see something you like, we HIGHLY recommend you get it before its gone!
Thando's shoes come in multiple colors and styles including African fabrics which are machine washable
Comfortable enough to provide superior foot relief
The split sole doesn't just allow for the shoe to bend but it creates two points for energy to be expelled in your walking and running motion
Thando's shoes come in different styles including a limited quantity per season
Durable enough to wear on city streets and stylish enough to inspire self-expression and individuality.
The split sole doesn't just allow the shoe to bend but it creates two points for energy to be expelled in your walking and running motion. Most shoes have a one piece outsole that is stiff and locks up your foot. We have measured the optimum distance between each split sole for a comfortable foot to shoe to ground ratio.
Don't take our word for it. See what customers have to say about our shoes.
Thando’s shoes were more than just the best shoe investment I ever made in these most recent years of my life—they were the most apt, functional and aesthetically-pleasing solution and culturally-centered fashion statement in shoes I had also made to-date!
