The Lake boot features a square toe, angled 70s inspired heel, and a genuine leather strap detail boasting a custom piece of hardware. Each hardware piece is entirely handcrafted by fair trade artisans in Kenya, making no two pieces exactly alike. The organic form of the hardware is inspired by the shape of Lake Victoria: Kenya's bordering body of water.
Proceeds from the sales of this boot and of all of our styles made with our Kenyan hardware go directly towards new initiative The Better Scholarship, a training and education program for low income students in Kenya.
