What does Karibu mean?
Karibu means 'you're welcome' in Swahili - and is a common greeting phrase in Tanzania and Kenya - where Karibu Sandals are manufactured.
What are Karibu Sandals made from?
Karibu Sandals are made from a high-quality and very malleable PVC - with similar feel to a Havaiana flip-flop. The sandals mould into your feet and have stylish cut-outs, which allow your feet to breathe. They are incredibly comfortable and provide support - so that you can wear them for most summer activities.
What is the social footprint of Karibu Sandals?
$1 from each pair of Karibu Sandals is donated to not-for-profit Shukuru - which provides microfinancing loans for women's education in Sub-Saharan Africa.
We manufacture Karibu Sandals in Mombasa, Kenya - helping to support a thriving community whose life-blood is around shoe manufacturing.
What is the US / European size equivalent?
- UK Size 5 = US Size 7 = EU Size 36-37
- UK Size 6 = US Size 8 = EU Size 38 -39
- UK Size 7 = US Size 9 = EU Size 40-41
