coat- ny&co., jeans- ae, t-shirt- kelly wearstler, shoes- kuna kicks c/o teysha

you guys.. this could very well be the first time i’ve EVER worn jeans on LA Inspiration. ever. in over 3 years. this is because i quit wearing jeans for awhile. i guess it was kinda by accident, i just wear/wore skirts & dresses 90% of the time. but winter in LA has actually been kinda cold (in, like, the 30s and 40s at night) and so on a whim i threw these on a few weeks ago to stay warm, and i kinda haven’t taken them off since. or this tee. or these shoes.

anyway, that’s the real point of this post: these shoes! it’s also been awhile since i’ve worn flats but i loved kuna kicks as soon as i saw the funky ass colorful patterns (which are all one of a kind, btw!), and fell for them even more after i read that they are fair trade! i was a little nervous because usually i have to break flats in (which typically involves me getting really painful blisters on my achilles tendon and never wearing them again), however i am really happy to say that instead of causing me blisters, kuna kicks stretch a bit to make sure that doesn’t happen and after wearing them several times – still no blisters! it’s a miracle, really. they are perfect.

“Teysha is an Austin-based, fair trade company importing 100% handmade, unique goods from around the world. Their flagship product, Kuna Kicks, feature a completely unique mola fabric (native Panamanian pattern), a signature of the Kuna women who produced it, and a guarantee that the sale made has direct impact in her community, over 1800 miles away.

The co-founders, Sophie Eckrich and Travis Breihan, have created a bridge across cultures through conscious enterprise and beautiful, functional handmade goods that improve the quality of life for every individual involved in the trade.

The Austin born-and-bred couple has brought their inclusive, eco-conscious mindset to Panama and has developed business relationships that are beneficial to the local community, a rarity in Panamanian international business relations.”

    Had I known about these shoes 2 weeks ago during Christmas vacation…I would have peed “I heart KUNA” in the snow.
