We travel the world, one country at a time, and collaborate with local artists to create a collection that tells the story of their home.
We started our journey in Lebanon, the Land of Cedars, home of the Phoenicians, and beacon of civilization. To unravel the mysteries of this ancient place, we collaborated with five artists and visited various places in and around Beirut.

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!!!
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.

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.

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:)

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!

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!

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!!

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).
Solana was founded in New York in the summer of 2017 with a vision to inspire authentic travel through a product as simple and as necessary as a shoe. Each collection tells a unique story. Through the universal language of art, Solana passes the paintbrush to artists from around the world to design shoes that reflect their culture.
