Cool Online Find: Shoes by Aminah Abdul Jillil
By Giselle Williams-Thomas

As a professional dancer, Aminah Abdul Jillil graced stages with superstars such as Janet Jackson,  Britney Spears and Cirque Du Soleil. On her downtime, the Anchorage, Alaska native and Los Angeles transplant started working on shoe designs in her living room, cutting and pasting material together, eventually taking some of her homemade prototypes to a sample maker in LA. Those samples were developed for her first collection in 2012. Since then, the brand has flourished considerably. If you’re ready for a fun, fresh and fashionable take on shoes, you’ll want to check out  Aminah Abdul Jillil.

The offerings are young, fresh and dually beautiful for its simplicity of design and for stunning embellishments.

At $165.50 the Coin Sandal has emerged as one of my personal faves. It’s minimalist appearance in the front and silver coin embellishments at the back simply make my heart skip a beat or two.

    I like the one with the bow but when you see the picture of the pink one, they do not look comfortable at all. Anyone here owning them ?
