Got a pair of the Love Ankara ballet flats and boy did I make a statement! Amazing color pop addition to my outfit. Brands like this tell the story of the movement of our print usage. From straight up kaba and slit and dukus to now using them on fashion products such as shoes!
The ballet flats are foldable, machine and hand-washable. They are made from premium leather and authentic limited edition African prints. The in-soles are soft and soooooo comfortable. The best part is that they are hand-made in Ghana. AS an owner of big feet, it was good to know that the shoes are availablein sizes 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43 and 44!!!
