Ben.ya | f. South African name meaning to be bright, to shine
Perky yet polished, this derby is a sophisticated way to dress for fun in the sun. Take a break from sandals or espadrille sneakers to give the Benya a chance. The two-tone lace-up comes in three colour options, one that's bold and colourful and two others that are traditional and easy to match. With a name that literally means “to shine,” these shoes help you look and feel like the star you are thanks to a distinguished cutout design that supports local South African craftsman. An almond toe and low stacked heel complement the final product.
Made of soft, trophy-grade metallic cowhide and olive aniline leather
Cosy cushioned insole
Vegetable-tanned leather soles
Resin grip heel
Made by human hands in Cape Town, South Africa
*The Benya fits like normal. It is normal for your shoes to fit slightly tight in the beginning. After a few wears, the leather will soften and mould perfectly to your feet.
