If we could shrink our giant adult feet down to miniature size, we would definitely be wearing pickings from the new Chankklas SS15 collection on our tootsies this summer. Instead, we will have to make do living our wardrobe aspirations through our children… which to be honest, is just as fun!
These beautiful sandals are handmade in the USA using high-grade European leathers making them soft and supple for little feet. Featuring beautiful muted colours and striking criss-cross designs, these shoes are a must-have staple in your child’s shoe collection.
The concept of Chankklas was born to bring together the unique talent of craftsmanship and the timeless elegance of clean-cut lines. The Spanish word ‘chancla’ (pronounced chàn-kla) can vary in meaning, but in Mexico (where the brand’s creator Karen is from), it is a fun way to say sandal! Add two K’s for the creators behind it and Voilà. Chankklas.
The inspiration for this collection originated from the designer's love of two worlds. Each pair draws inspiration from traditional technique and designs used for centuries in pre-colonial Mexico and with a background full of history and nostalgia, and the introduction of fine European leathers and clean aesthetics offers a unique line in between comfort and chic + tradition and technique.
You can shop the full range on the Chankklas website.
