SAINT & SUMMER
Saint & Summer shoes was founded in 2014 by two friends, Julia James and Roxy Message in Durban. It’s such a great story of besties making it big in the shoe business. They went to the same school and are now both raising their families in KZN.
Their easy-going, casual shoes are always on-trend and perfect for our South African climate. The aesthetic is casual and current. And it’s awesome that they don’t cost the world. As Saint & Summer proudly state: “Our shoes make you feel like a million buck without cost it.”
Julia and Roxy’s aim is to create beautiful shoes for busy women. They, like many of us, are moms, wives, career girls and are always on the run. They like trendy shoes but are not trend-slaves. But you’ll notice that their shoes have been created after doing research on international and local trends. You know and trust that Saint & Summer shoes are “cool” and that you’ll feel great in them.
Equilibrio loves that Saint & Summer shoes are fun. They make use of stunning prints, like leopard print, and texture, like studs. They always look abroad for inspiration when designing shoes but also get inspired by home, like their fabulous Nguni print that we’re obsessed with.
Most of their shoes are produced in Julia and Roxy’s home town, Durban, South Africa, with a few of the styles being imported. They are however steadily and where possible moving more and more of their shoe production locally.
We think that Saint & Summer shoes will be a household name. And we’re proud to display them on Equilibrio.
