Right now the Disney Store is partnering with Zazzle to bring customers these amazing Baby Yoda Ubuntu Afridrilles Espadrilles shoes.
They come in men’s and women’s sizes. You can customize your lining color choice to personalize these shoes even more!
But was is a Afridrilles?
An Afridrilles is “a one-of-a-kind slip-on shoe that’s perfect for doing good and feeling good.”
According to the Shop Disney site:
“It’s been affectionately named Afridrille because it’s inspired by the Spanish espadrille style, but it’s 100% made in Africa. The shoe retains the look and feel of the espadrille while weaving in the local African flair through unique custom designs, indigenous African patterns, and the kanga fabric (a colorful triangle garment worn throughout East Africa).
The Afridrille is fully customizable. Each customer can create a unique shoe that fits their own personal style by selecting the color of the canvas, the style, and color of print, and the inner kanga lining.”
What is Ubuntu?
It’s an “African philosophy of unity: ‘I Am Because We Are.’
“UBUNTU is also an organization that embodies this principle and believes the products we buy should connect us to the people who make them. Each Afridrille is handmade by UBUNTU Mums in Maai Mahiu, Kenya.
UBUNTU gives back to health and education programs in Kenya, creating jobs and providing impact in communities on the other side of the world. The UBUNTU model creates a new cycle of livelihood between social business and non-profit growth. The earned and charitable income from UBUNTU Enterprise feeds directly into the well-being of Zazzle’s social impact initiatives.”
So you can look good while doing good for others. Wear Baby Yoda shoes to help others and inspire change. That is definitely a “win-win.”
You can order these shoes through the Disney store.
Here’s how you choose your size:
“The Afridrille fits true to size. Order your regular shoe size if you plan to wear your Afridrilles without socks, or size up a 1/2 size to wear the Afridrille with socks. Wide sizes are not available, customers who have wider feet should order a half-size up.”
Also: “Due to the unique nature of these items, phone orders are not possible.
Customized items may not be returned or exchanged unless damaged or defective.“
Keep that in mind when ordering!
