Meet Joab, the label bringing Turkish-style espadrilles to Australia

Joab shoes campaign

The king of summer footwear.

Now that we’re well and truly in the swing of the summer season, it’s high time you sorted out some appropriate footwear for the warmer months.

An espadrille is the king of summer footwear – it offers protection for your feet while still leaving you cool on 40-degree days. On that note, let us introduce you to Joab, the label bringing handmade Turkish espadrilles to Australia.

Each Joab shoe is handstitched and crafted from leather, in a workshop employing Turkish locals and refugees displaced by the Syrian conflict. You can expect the expertise of five generations of shoemakers behind each design, ensuring meticulous attention to detail with every shoe.

The espadrilles are available in men’s and women’s styles, using a variety of high-quality materials like leather, nubuck and pony hair in a range of colours.  Due to the artisanal nature of the production process, no two pairs are identical.

Joab has just launched in Australia, which means there’s never been a better time to get acquainted with the label.
