My new favourite everyday lounge around shoe!
I really liked the look of this shoe when I first saw the promotional e-mail. I also like the general concept of supporting the artists and the community in Ethiopia. The actual product is also fantastic. The shoes are nice and wide and comfortable, but the canvas and rubber construction makes them hug your foot nicely so it doesn't feel floppy. As with all Vivo's the rubber sole is very durable and I expect these will last a very long time. I have already washed them and they stand up well to the machine with no visible wear (I air dried them). I have been wearing these a lot since I received them 4 months ago and over time, the canvas has frayed a bit around the edges where it meets the rubber sole, which I think enhances the look.
These shoes now live by my door and they are my first choice if I need to slip something on quickly to run an errand.
