Fab Flash: Gisele Y Ikatu Xingu Footwear Collection

Since 2001, Gisele's footwear line called Ipanema has sold over $100 million dollars worth of sandals! The line is inspired by the legends of the Brazilian Indian people and the sandals are now available in Malaysia.

However, instead of just celebrating these legends, it has been reported that the shoe manufacturer, Grendene, has decided to help them too.

The Kisedje Indians have a campaign called "Y Ikato Xingu" which is aimed at preserving the waters of the Xingu River and the forests that protect this sacred and necessary water. Portions of the profits from the footwear will be donated toward the campaign.

This new collection of shoes comes from a graphics workshop that began in April, which gave the Kisedje's and Gisele a chance to create a unique product.

Gisele is responsible for handpicking the tribal images found on the inner-soles of each of the sandals within this collection, which includes footwear for women, children and babies.

So Gisele is a supermodel and philanthropist? She sure makes it hard to hate her!

The collection is really cute, (except for the pair she is holding!). I bought two pairs, (in Argentina, this summer), one is black with brown graphics, and the other one is white with golden graphics... they are great for the beach!
