Caribbean Sandal Brands You Need to Know

 
When we think about regional fashion creatives we don’t often think about Caribbean shoe brands. Clothing, bags and jewellery tend to get all the shine since there are definitely more people making them.

And of course, those leather craftsmen who can be found on virtually every island usually aren’t on social media. It’s more of a word of mouth/stumble across them in the city kinda thing.

This post highlights some of the more well-known brands but it is by no means exhaustive. Feel free to comment with other brands and shoemakers you know so I can include them.

Bridget Sandals

Bridget Sandals haven’t updated their social media pages or website in several years. I’m still including the brand since this was one of the first major Caribbean sandal brands. From what I can gather the store in Kingston is still open.

 

Is there a brand I’ve left out? Drop me a line in the comments.
