Our widest, simplest shoe pays homage to the original humans of the Rift Valley. Ababa is handmade in Ethiopia in collaboration with Soul of Africa, an organization focused on creating opportunities for employment and education across the African continent.
We're confident that after experiencing the joys of natural foot freedom, your feet won't want to go back to 'normal' shoes.
So confident, we've introduced a 100 day trial to all orders. If you change your mind within that period, we're happy for you to return your shoes for a full refund with no hassle.
Your trial will commence automatically from the date your order arrives. Simply check out with your shoes as usual and we'll take care of the rest. (Standard Ts and Cs apply).

Det er de blødeste, smukkeste og med bedste pasform. Der er 2 sko jeg kommer til at tænke på. De første Jaco form årg. 1979 og Fivefingers KSO. Ababa har det bedste fra begge sko. De er meget smukkere i virkeligheden, end på jeres hjemmeside. Min kone vil god følges med mig når jeg har dem på. Også til finere selskab. Det er mit Vivobarefoot sko par nr 5. Har selvfølgelig Ra og Gobi Soul of Africa. Et par terræn støvler og kondisko. Men Ababa er mine favorit. De har str. 42 som de 4 andre Vivobarefoot sko har.
