Ababa Basquiat Mens

Paying homage to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the Ababa Basquiat is part of our collaborative multi-piece capsule showing off three of the late artist's Neo-Expressionist works. This shoe is made from Wild Hide, the naturally-scarred leather of free-roaming, cage-free cattle, sourced from small scale farmers in Ethiopia. Handmade in Ethiopia, the production of the Ababa empowers makers and supports local communities.

Features

Consciously crafted shoes, empowering makers & supporting local communities

  • Hand-stitched in Addis Ababa, and directly providing sustainable jobs to local communities, these shoes are made with Ethiopian-sourced Wild Hide leather.
  • Naturally tanned by our partners, Pittards, our leather meets international environmental standards.
  • This shoe is printed with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s eponymous ‘Tuxedo’, one of the late artist’s highly acclaimed Neo-Expressionist drawings.
  • Ababa shoes carry the Proudly Made in Africa award, as they are independently verified for their quality, materials and ethical production.
