Item Description

The shoes I have created have an original mandala design that I drew freehand. The outside design of the shoe is done in black and the inside of the shoe is a rainbow pattern. I was inspired to do this because I didn?t know who the person wearing them would be, so I wanted them to be somewhat subtle on the outside, with a bit more personality on the inside.

Sizing: Mens 8.5 / Womens 10
