Treads are comfortable, minimalist sandals handcrafted by local Malawian artisans. The soles are sourced from high-quality tire treads that have been cleaned, recycled, and hand cut for a perfect fit. Two strong upper bands made from handwoven cotton wrap softly around your feet. Your purchase will provide a week's worth of food for a family in Malawi, and will help protect the environment from tire waste. You can learn more about how we give here.
Please note that Malawi is a third world country with poor transport, communications, and energy infrastructure. This means delivery times may be longer than you are accustomed to. We estimate your Treads will be delivered within 1 month of ordering, and will send you updates throughout the journey. We do not recommend you purchase Treads if you need your flip flops immediately. Thank you for creating a better future for the world!
