Designed by Brooklyn-based Aurora James — who worked as a casting director and curator before launching her own brand two years ago — Brother Vellies produces sustainable shoes handcrafted by artisans in South Africa, Kenya and Morocco. And they're gorgeous: beaded gladiator sandals, fur-trimmed mules, elegant slides with just the perfect amount of heel, all inspired by traditional African footwear.Now, do we have to wait till Spring to get them into our closet?
