Her Own Two Feet is an artisan line of stylish, socially responsible sandals handcrafted by Pakistani women. Each pair sold doubles a woman's income in Pakistan and provides a school scholarship to a Pakistani child.

Research shows that as women are engaged in the formal economy and as children are enrolled in school in the developing world, countries become less prone to being used as a base for extremism. 17-year-old Malala Yousafzai recently won the Nobel Peace Prize for her human rights advocacy for the education of women and girls, which has become an international movement. Her Own Two Feet's mission is the same as Malala’s: empower and educate women and children to reduce violence and create a more peaceful world.

The flip-flops are super comfortable, stylish and they help make the world a better place. Featuring beautiful blue and red beads, the shoes are an elegant and sustainable alternative to big name brands.
