They say they are destined to be the next Crocs. Well, they might need to paint them pink for that, but Fairtrade Maasai Treads are probably a much better use of rubber. The Kenyan made sandals use rejected new tyres which would have ended up on the scrap mountains. Based on a design that the Maasai people have worn for almost a century the shoes also provides people in the Kibera Slum with an income, now the largest slum in East & Central Africa and the second largest in the world.
Very reasonably priced at £29.99 and featured on Jambo Jambo, who are the sole importers of Maasai products into the UK. Also, check out the Maasai Tread boots priced at £49.99. Brilliant!
