I was going through the collection of sandals available at Overstock.com when I stumbled upon these two colorful Matiko creations:
Namas Sandals, US$55
Nakia Sandals, US$
I love how Matiko used bright colors to come up with these tribal themed sandals, so perfect for spring!
The Namas features five (5) colors of beads arranged artfully to create a design reminiscent of Native American Indian markings. The bright colors are just so fresh to look at; a great change from all the jewel tones and earthy hues used by most gladiator sandals. I also love how it uses a sling back strap instead of the usual ankle strap; less height-cutting for a change.
The Nakia on the other hand, only features one bright color. But the lack of color has not stopped this pair from looking ethnic. The yellow cutouts are strategically arranged with the dark brown to come up with a geometric and tribal looking pattern. The color combination is also very striking. Plus, it’s a pair of thong sandals; definitely more flattering to wear.
