Made in Africa in collaboration with the Soul of Africa social enterprise. Profits go back to supporting local employment and education initiatives.
every time i ordered a shoe from vivobarefoot i always ended up buying another one than the ababa. But now i finally bought them and i can only say its one of the most comfortable shoes i have from any barefoot brand. Nicely finished and great to wear without socks.
This is by far the most comfortable and "like-a-glove" feeling shoe I have ever owned and perfect for the workplace! Thinking of getting another pair for home! They seem to run small though, because the 46 I normally wear turned out to small, but the 47 is the perfect "loose" fit.
