When we set out to design shoes, we knew two things: 1) a super stylish pair of leather and suede high top sneakers had to be on the list, and 2) we wouldn’t be able to resist naming them Lamu after our inspiration for our all-new line of sneakers and apparel. We focused on making the fit and feel exceed our sneaker fans’ expectations, including additional ankle support, memory foam insole, and added sole flexibility. The result is a pair of high-top sneakers with a clean, modern silhouette and a few tasteful nods to tradition. The Lamu begs you to push boundaries with your day-to-day style—they pair as easily with a pair of cropped jeans or that new pair of palazzo pants you bought for work but are just dying to wear out on the town. Contrasting stripes of Kenyan Kikoy cotton adds just the right amount of color to almost any outfit. And as always, American Rhino’s shoes and handbags feature responsibly sourced leather that is processed according to the higher environmental standards.
