The Assata is named after Assata Shakur. Assata Olugbala Shakur is an activist, and former member of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba in 1984, gaining political asylum.
Our sandals are hand made in Kenya with rubber outer sole and leather insole. Should the footwear get wet, dry them in a cool place and not direct sunlight.
The Assata fits true to size. The leather has a snug fit, but stretches to your foot over time. If in doubt, size up.
