SKOS shoes all summer

You just can’t beat casual kicks. Even more so when they come in glorious shades of romantic dusty pink, best-selling vintage green, and vibrant sunshine yellow. And if there’s one pair of shoes you need this summer, it’s these…

SKOS offers lace-ups and espadrilles in more than 40 colours

Say hola to Victoria Rose* – fashioned from breathable cotton, with soles of natural, 100% biodegradable jute, created by SKOS in the homeland of the espadrille, Spain.

All of the materials in SKOS shoes can be recycled and reused

SKOS is an online store founded by two enterprising Dubai-based engineers in December 2013, aiming to recreate the humble espadrille using premium European materials in unique designs. They also wanted to ensure their shoes were as green as they could be.

The fabric is hand-stitched to the jute sole for extra durability

Ordering my SKOS was quick and painless, with my lace-ups landing on my doorstep within 48 hours. The first pair were a little snug, and SKOS happily exchanged them for the next size up. The hardest part of the whole process was choosing from the amazing selection of colours and styles.
