For the Nigerian man slip ons (or sandals!) are part of our DNA. We wear them with traditional, trousers and shorts…pretty much with everything. Gone are the days of your dad’s safari suits and baggy native – the modern man dresses with flare: colourful trousers, shorts and shirts; trad with expressive textures and impeccable finishing – so why kill the look with the same old boring, staid slip ons (or sandals)?

We started ATWAZI to create an alternative to the dull “designer” (or not) stuff many folks wear. We believe that after going through the trouble of tailoring your clothes to your taste, you deserve…in fact you owe it to yourself to top it off with footwear that not only matches the rest of your outfit but also reflects your personality. At ATWAZI we focus on designing, and hand crafting slippers (or sandals) with character and personality, products which speak to each person’s individualism. We relentlessly focus on creating products with the highest global quality standards. We believe that buying slip ons (or sandals) should be easy and fun. Basically, we are obsessed with making you look good.

Don’t see something that quite fits your needs - doesn’t quite match that fila or aso ebi? Need matching gear for your groomsmen? Trying to find something to go with that spanking new lime green shirt? We do custom orders. Just email us at and we will be more than happy to bounce ideas off and get you exactly what you are looking for.
