FItFlop & Net-A-Porter Launch Exclusive Sandal for Charity

FitFlop sandals and boots are shoes with a dual purpose. They're stylish and help you burn calories and tone with every step.  FitFlop is also committed to giving back.


Manyano thong sandal
The company's Manyano thong sandal ($130) launches April 20.  The natural leather sandal was hand-beaded by the women of the Wola Nani cooperative in Cape Town, South Africa, and has FitFlop's patented Microwobbleboard™ midsole built in. Manyano is available exclusively on FitFlop's website and premier online retailer Net-A-Porter.  


“At FitFlop, we believe fashion has the ability to unite women across the world,” says FitFlop Footwear founder Marcia Kilgore.

“We are extremely proud to support Wola Nani and help HIV sufferers to take control of their lives with confidence, dignity and hope.”

Kilgore is inspired by “the amazing craftsmanship of the Wola Nani community and the incredible support, education and skills training the charity provides,” and is proud to contribute to the Wola Nani by commissioning this limited edition sandal.

FitFlop will donate 100% of its net profit from sales back to the Wola Nani organization and Ne-A-Porter will donate 20% of its net profit.  

Everything She Wants wants a pair. How about you?
