Our widest, simplest shoe pays homage to the original humans of the Rift Valley. Handmade in Ethiopia in partnership with Soul of Africa, an organization focused on creating opportunities for employment and education on the African continent. A truly collaborative effort, the print of Ababa Canvas is by Akaso, a Belgium-based label that works with Kara painters of Ethiopia to create unique and authentic designs.

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).

Good product

I ordered this on a men's size as there was no women's in dark in stock left. It was too wide as I suspected, so if I order men's in future I think I'll order a smaller size. I should have checked the measurements before ordering. Aside from that it's a very comfortable and stylish shoe! My husband actually has it too!

Beautifully made

I already have these shoes in black leather so I was excited to get my summer canvas ones. The fabric is quite stiff and actually gave me blisters the first day but I can already feel it loosening up and I'm sure it will be fine. The shoes are really well made (of course) and I expect them to last for many years to come.
