If you are a fan of Mediterranean styling and natural materials, you’ll love the brand, Kanna. Founded in 1985 by John & Thomas De La Cerda, Kanna Shoes considers jute to be part of its DNA! The company is located in Murcia, Spain, which is known for its tradition of handcrafted items and natural materials, and Kanna shoes exemplify everything good about the Mediterranean.
Utilizing vegetable tanned leather, handmade ornamentation, and even precious stones with its textiles, Kanna shoes are inspired by aspects of the Mediterranean: the sun and its light, the sea and its salt, and the culture and people who live there. The casual designs work well with the natural resources applied to their products. Not only is jute a huge part of the end design, Kanna also uses raffia, wicker, straw and cotton among other natural materials. Kanna prides itself on its outstanding quality as well as environmental responsibility and use of natural materials.
Beautiful new styles for women for the Spring/Summer include:
The Namibia KV4383– this wedge has a leather and snake print leather upper and a jute wrapped wedge heel. At 2.5” the heel is very comfortable, since this shoe is a platform wedge. This shoe is very fashion forward given the interesting pattern on the wedge heel as well as the mixture of plain leather and snakeskin in the upper. It excels in style as well as comfort! This shoe is available in Black Leather or Brown leather.
The Morbidone Slide KV5125 – this wedge slide has gorgeous decorative cutout accents. Fashioned like an espadrille, the slide showcases its jute wrapped heel, and the decorative and soft suede upper. It’s another platform wedge, so that makes it really easy to wear and comfortable. It is available in Safari Suede or Black Suede, each of which add casual elegance to your wardrobe.
The Morbidone KV5051 – this is a classic espadrille-style sandal. With its soft suede upper and straps, your feet will feel comfortable and in luxury! The jute-wrapped heel is accented with decorative stitching for visual interest. The 2.5” wedge heel is a platform heel, so it’s very easy to wear even if you aren’t used to heels. I particularly love the elastic heel strap, which makes getting the shoe on and off extremely easy. This shoe is available in Safari Suede or Black Suede, which should work with all of your casual outfits.
