Julius Otieno the founder, started Kshoes as a social enterprise that cuts across several issues including environment, education, gender, youth and talent empowerment. Their environmental target is to utilize 40% of waste materials to produce quality and durable shoes as they distribute what is not used to other recycling companies. Kshoes facilitates a 2 months incubator program where they train and mentor individuals on the process of making quality designed shoes. 30% of the revenue generated is reinvested into training more individuals in different regions so as to reduce the high rate of unemployment thus encouraging youths to be self-sustainable.
Kshoes designs both male, female, and unisex shoes from sandals, slip on, lace up, boots to heel toe. Their prices ranges from Khs 1500 to 3000 depending on the shoes type. Kshoes exports shoes within and outside Africa, so if you are aboard don’t hesitate to make your order. They have already made shoes in store but they also accept custom orders.
