Siblings Francesca and John Kennedy witnessed a shocking need for clean drinking water while traveling in Guatemala. Driven to make a difference, they created Ix Style huarache sandals, with a portion of sales earmarked to help Charity:Water develop clean water projects for communities in need. The Ix name, pronounced “eeks,” is a nod to the Mayan calendar day meaning “water.” The huaraches themselves are just as refreshing — lovingly, locally crafted with vibrant hand-woven Mayan textiles. $89, at ix-style.com.
