What people are saying

Love them!

I have had these for about 4 months and I can’t tell you how many compliments I get on them. They are wonderfully detailed and the embroidery really stands out. They look great with casual outfits and I’ve worn them to work all day as well as to festivals. I love them and can’t wait to see what other designs come out!!!

Super Comfortable! 

I’m obsessed with my Solanas. Since I purchased them they have been with me all over the world! They’ve stolen the place of my Tom’s! They’re so comfortable that I can literally walk in them for hours. And I have. 

Halah, Jeddah

Great Concept and Design!

Love these shoes because there is rich culture and history behind every pair. Plus they look really cool. I have yet to have day pass when someone hasn't complemented me on them.

Aya Abdallah, New York City

Stylish and comfy

I happened upon the Solana stall at a nearby street market where I purchased these beauties. They are so comfortable and stylish as well. As a new mom, I need things that are efficient and I can just slip these on and go. Get so many compliments on them! Will definitely be buying more in the different designs!

Stylish & Comfy

I love my Solanas, they are so trendy and comfortable! Most importantly is that if u wear them without socks, they still feel cool and not sweaty! We need new designs plz:)

Thuraya, Lebanon

Definitely Five Stars!

Super comfortable and well designed. Works perfectly with hot summers because of the pleasant suede insoles! Always receiving a ton of compliments on the design of the shoe and the embroidered Dabke!

Yasmina Yehia, London

Best Shoes Ever!

Made for everyday adventures and tell the coolest story. It’s awesome having a piece of art on my feet, that tell a lot about home. Can’t wait to take them everywhere with me!

Basma Mosly, Colorado

Fantastic & Unique

The name first captured my attention and then I saw it + read the description. Everything about them attracted me and I am so happy with my pair! And so unique. Who knew a beautiful hand & MobileMe rider would go so well together . Thank you Solana!!

Dani, San Franscisco

Lovely Shoes!

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Solana at the launch party in Beirut (at one of my favorite coffee shops!) and bought a pair of the dabketna shoes on the spot - I love them! I've only worn them with the heel folded in - they're super comfortable as sliders, and look great with jeans or black pants. Would definitely recommend these (and have).
