One day – back in 2009 – a thought crossed my mind. Wouldn't it be great to turn my espadrilles into easy going, leather-free boots to wear barefooted in the summer? The search began for a classic espadrille enhanced into a casual boot – but nothing was found. Then I thought about creating them myself. I cut my old espadrilles into pieces and created a model. It started with a set of samples for my circle of friends. Then it grew into a small, eco friendly, vegan shoe line. CUMINs feel fantastic whether you wear them over your bare feet or with stockings. They are always a perfect match to any style from morning to night and they can be packed flat for travelling. I hope you have as much fun wearing them as I did creating them, Vanessa
