I really looove the shoes, it is like my feet are free again. I'm used to heavy shoes like dr Martens, or biker boots always a size too big and correction soles. I bought the ababa to feel the ground under my feet again and it was an awesome decision. At first I had to get used to the appearence, I literally laughed about the width, and with my small size 35 it looked like a hobbit shoe. Also I was afraid that they would be a little too short, but the size fits perfectly. My friends are actually impressed about the weird shoes looking like cute hippie grandpa slippers, but fit very much with who I am as a person really . The delivery was in within 10 days, also very fine, and completely traceable. I would recommend it to any one.
Ik vind het mooie schoenen, en goed gemaakt. Eerst was ik bang dat ze een beetje te krap zaten (in de lengte, niet in de breedte) maar omdat het leer meegeeft zaten de schoenen na een weekje inlopen als gegoten. Het is echt net alsof je op blote voeten loopt, wat ik heel fijn vind.
