Introducing the newest addition to our footwear line,the Lamu Mule! Handmade from high-quality locally sourced leather & the same comfortable jute soles as our classic Afridrilles, these brown leather mules will have you ready to hit the streets in style.
We have named our new Lamu Mule after Lamu Island - part of an archipelago just off the east coast of Kenya. This idyllic roadless island, full of narrow cobblestone alleyways and footpaths, old forts and elegant rooftop cafes, inspired us to create this effortless shoe. Not only is it one of our favorite places to relax, it is also the perfect place to stroll and explore in a pair of our new Lamu Mules.

Liked shoes but too narrow for my instep. Returning them.
Thanks they are well worth the wait.
Great color. Will need to stretch, wear, them a bit as my feet are a little wide. Hoping for warmer weather to show them off. Would recommend
Bought these for my Aunt for her birthday and she loved them!!! She said, “the leather is so soft”. I am pleased that I made the purchase; will be buying more!
I love them, they are a bit narrow...i read a comment before my purchase, so i bought them .5 bigger, but they are still snug...im sure they will stretch with use! Proud to help in ur cause!

I’m very fond of these, love the color and construction, received compliments and good curiosity when I wore them at our family Thanksgiving gathering... but the inner lining on the left shoe is not glued down properly; its corner flips over and irritates the outer top side of my foot. I’ll try to re-glue it, but it created a blister. Otherwise, they are nicely made and unique.
I love my afridrilles! ! I live in Southern California so these espadrilles and mules fit my lifestyle perfectly. I leave them by my door so I can slip them on & off easily. They are comfortable & good looking & the colors are great, I have 2 pairs. Bonus- they have totes, weekenders & pouches to match or coordinate with any style or color (check out the light turquoise!).
The quality is so good, I'm sure I can count on having them for many years to come.
I think I need another pair but I can't decide between the Lamu mule in indigo or mustard or maybe both!
Nice looking slide, feels very comfortable
The mules are well made and comfortable. It’s more than I expected. So much so, that I’ll be purchasing a second pair.
They are beautiful! Super comfortable, love them....delivered super fast!
Good shoes, but too big. Going to exchange for a small size.
So excited when the package arrived. The mules looked just like the pictures. A little tight when I initially tried them on. Walked around the house for a few minutes. The next morning a much better fit They’re my go to shoes for most everyday. Fit true to size. Well made and good quality materials. Love the African imprint on the soles. Want more colors for the mules, please.
I love the color of the leather but the sole is not flexible or comfortable! Shoe is well made!
I normally wear a 7.5 medium width. I wish I had ordered a size 8. The shoes are a little tight, but I'm hoping that with time they suede will stretch some. The shoes are a dark camel color and beautiful. They are classy, preppy looking and I think I'm really going to enjoy wearing them as a casual shoe with jeans. Even though they are running a little small, I'm still glad I ordered them.
Wow, from the moment I slipped these gorgeous mules on they were comfy, cozy AND chic! I can’t get over how perfect they fit but also how beautiful this chestnut color is! I have worn them everyday since receiving them and they will go right into the warmer months with the jute and opened back!
I got these mules when they first came out and wear them ALL the time! Love love love these and need more in every color! Such a great find!
I absolutely LOVE my Mules! These are my go to shoes, they are extremely comfortable and fashionable at the same time (which is hard to find both). These are a must have!!!
