Ababa Leather Sandal Kids


Our Kids Ababa Sandal is a simple shoe on a mission, walking in the footsteps of our ancestors to take barefoot to a whole new level. Made with Ethiopian Wild Hide, this subtle, naturally-scarred leather is provided by small-scale farmers. As part of our Soul of Africa range, Ababa Kids are handmade in Ethiopia, empowering makers, supporting local communities.

Hand-stitched in Addis Ababa directly providing sustainable jobs, the shoes are made with Ethiopian-sourced Wild-Hide naturally tanned by our partners Pittards meeting international environmental standards. Sourced from Ethiopian small-scale, independent farmers this soft, flexible leather shows individual markings that reflect a life with freedom to roam.
Ababa shoes carry the Proudly Made in Africa award, as they are independently verified for their quality, materials used and ethical production.

Excellent children’s sandals

My grandson loves these sandals. He says they are “super comfy”! . I love viva barefoot, so I am so happy the children’s footwear is of the same excellent quality as the adults. I heartily recommend.

Just what we've been waiting for!

This really is an amazing addition to the kids range! My little girl has needed something like this for ages! They are perfect! She only feels comfy in Vivos these days but really needed a sandal and now she's got some! Even Mum was wow'd by them and she's my hardest convert so far; go Vivo!! X
