So you are out and about, you have been in heels all day, your feet hurt but you can't wear slippers to meet your friend for dinner even though it is a chilled dinner. What do you do? Thando's offer a great solution. The shoes are easy, foldable, and comfortable. The idea of Thando's is what has made it our product of the week.
We love that this is a Nigerian brand by a Nigerian. We also love the fact that the founder is a woman. Trump might not agree with us but women are on the rise!
Thandos' are foldable ballerina pumps. They com in a variety of colours, some more subtle than others. The range starts with black and navy and moves to an exploration of ankara fabrics. There is also an introduction of patent toe tips and there are also open toe styles. I personally prefer the plane or ankara versions as a simple and colourful alternative to sandals.
What makes Thandos' unique is that they are machine washable and you can also get them in large sizes. I do know a number of people who find it difficult to find nice simple shoes because they have large feet. There aren't a lot of Nigerian shoe brands let alone shoe brands that cater for people with large feet.
Overall, we love the idea of Thandos' and we are keen to see what they do next within the African artisan space either with shoes or other products. You can purchase a pair head to heels.com.ng and you can find out more at www.thandos.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
