Summer is the season we all wait for, it is the time to let our hair down, travel and explore the world while working on that much-loved summer glow. Highlighted by long active days and easy-going evening attire, it is important that we look down at our feet and make sure that we not only look stylish but feel cool and comfortable as well.
Contrary to popular belief, leather shoes are the best option for summer.
Because natural breathable materials are imperative for the health of your feet.
A summer shoe should be light in weight. It should also be breathable, so the more natural the leather the better. The quality of the leather used also plays an important role, cheaper leathers are treated to hide blemishes on the skin reducing the material breathability.
Lightweight soles, like single leather or micro, also help to keep you feeling cool and comfortable throughout a warm day.
This is exactly where the Rana Cheikha production stands and the reason behind choosing to create our handmade shoes in natural leathers. We do not stop at the uppers, but make sure that the soft leather lining of every pair of our sandals, slides or shoes will ensure breathability for your feet, and that the padded leather insole will also guarantee your long-lasting comfort.
We do offer some style in fabric materials, but always chose to line them with natural leathers as well.
The Hiyat and Mina from our main Label Rana Cheikha are two of our favorite options for summer shoes. The supple leather used and exquisite hand-finished weaving will keep your feet healthy while looking fabulous.
The Rasha, Alma and Medan, also from the Rana Cheikha Collection, are unique because of their trans-seasonal quality. Not only are they great for cooler autumn and spring seasons, but the soft and breathable materials used to construct these shoes make them ideal to wear throughout warmer months as well.
The Buko, Bara, Roko, Moyo and Akai from our Wander by Rana Cheikha Collection are all optimal choices as summer shoes.
Because the entire concept behind the Wander label is about that summer ease while you are busy conjuring up stories of travel and exploration.

It is an understatement to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed every aspect of our lives. The virus has reshaped our day-to-day activities, routines and habits. Hygiene has been the main force in fighting the risk of contamination and caused a dramatic shift in the way we keep everything we are in contact with, including food, clothes and even entire spaces, clean.
If you live in locations of strong heat where the summer season extends to most of the year, this becomes even more necessary. And if you are in countries that have extreme sun exposure, like the Gulf countries of Saudi Arabia, Qatar or Kuwait, this becomes imperative.
