My Beachy Side crochet “barefoot sandals” are unique hand-knitted accessories guaranteed to make you the hit of that beach-side wedding this summer. Whether you are lying on the beach, lounging around the house or in search of something to accessorize your shoes, these barefoot sandals are a bold way to accessorize your look.
They also come in a wide variety of colors and styles, including ankle length and knee high. They can also be worn on your hands or as a choker.
My Beachy Side is also unique because Ates employs many under-privileged Turkish and Syrian refugee women to craft the design. She has partnered with an NGO to employ hundreds of women, changing their lives with a steady income. Ates describes her Beachy Side makers as “under-privileged and over-achievers.” Each woman hired has the opportunity to name her non-negotiable cost of her labor.
My Beachy Side barefoot sandals range from $28 to $95 depending on the embellishments and length of the style.
