Our Story

Proudly South African


SAINT&SUMMER was created much in the same way it’s now run – captivated by our local surroundings and based on a friendship foundation 20 years deep. It was in 2013 during the humid heat that is Durban in December, we began piecing together the vision for our business.

Officially launching in 2014, SAINT&SUMMER has evolved into a local company that brings together what is most loved about South Africa with a modern twist. Founded on compassion and ethics we have combined our differing skill sets and focused them to realise our shared vision – To bring you perfectly styled, uniquely designed, quality footwear.

Vision And Mission


We started SAINT&SUMMER in the hope of bringing you footwear that tells of the lifestyle we lead here in South Africa. Each of our matte jelly shoes are designed to compliment your individual distinctive style. They are all locally designed and inspired by urban styles we see around us; encouraging us to focus on some of the best scenery Durban has to offer! Guided by a strong set of values, SAINT&SUMMER set out to build a “different” kind of modern company, one founded on compassion and ethics, aiming to influence society in both fashion and social responsibility.

SAINT&SUMMER’s mission is to consistently provide a total customer experience through our people, products and company values.

SAINT&SUMMER’s vision is to give fashionable women a unique way to express their individuality through style. We envision our brand to represent a lifestyle.

We are very pleased to announce that our SAINT&SUMMER Team is growing.

Lawrence joined us as Operations Co-Ordinator at the end of 2017 and has settled in so well. He deals with all daily operations in SAINT&SUMMER’s Head Office. All online orders, store packing and dispatching, daily queries from the website, exchanges and returns. Thank you for the gracious welcome each of you extended to him.

Natalie, our newest Sales Manager, started with us in April 2018.  She heads up our wholesale sales and will be the point of contact for all of our stockists. She comes with a wealth of retail experience and knowledge having worked with big retailers both locally and in London. We are confident that she will be an asset to our S&S team.
