You might not want to ever be caught wearing your beloved grandmother's sandals, but they do have something going for them, and that's what Nom&Ada have decided to focus on. By updating the look, they've created an uber-comfortable-looking shoe that has both a homely and hipster look to it.
The label's name, Nom&Ada comes from its founders: the "nomadic" Rie Sawai in Tokyo, Japan and the "adaptable" Kimy Andrade in Portland, Oregon. The brand's sandals are as nomadic and adaptable as its creators.
Although they met at Parsons in New York City, Sawai and Andrade actually have a bicontinental business arrangement that is tough but also yields a lot of unique benefits. Considering the Nom&Ada sandals, their distance must work.
