Translating to ‘diamond’ in Swahili, the Almasi boot takes inspiration from the diamond’s clean lines and geometry. Available in both vegan and genuine leather options, this boot is super sleek with a pointed almond-shaped toe, and a covered heel with diamond inspired stitch detailing.
The custom designed zipper pull, also shaped like a diamond, is entirely handcrafted by fair trade artisans in Kenya. 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.
