Handmade Designer Shoes

Our trademarks are inspired feminine footwear that combines bold colours with a holistic approach to shoe making. Each pair of shoes is a bespoke custom design and by definition is one of a kind.

Made in Cape Town

Coast & Koi was created in 2005 with the aim of creating a chic and stylish, proudly South African brand. We have since established ourselves as a mark of quality and distinction with exclusive buyers and at international events such as the Cape Town Design Indaba, where we exhibit annually.

We fuse together the functionality of a comfortable shoe with stylish and original design, by utilizing high quality fabrics and design led production. Our vision of the African renaissance is an essential component of who we are.

The women who choose Coast & Koi are distinctively unique, independent and free thinking. When you embrace Coast & Koi, you embrace so much more than just shoes, you resonate a certain lifestyle.

Exclusive Designs

We stock many exclusive boutiques across South Africa, and supply clients abroad. Look out for our label or order footwear directly from us.
