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.

I was after a casual shoe to wear about town; something for the pavement since my outdoor off-road choice is always my Primus FG Trail shoes, I thought it’d be nice to have a pair of shoes to keep clean and look nice enough while still being a pleasure to wear. These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. They leave my feet alone enough so as not to impose on their movement, and cling like a sock so they won’t go anywhere. A perfect product, incredibly chuffed
I was very excited to get these shoes. I love the style. They are the most barefoot feeling shoes I've owned, out of 5 different pairs of Vivos.The only downside is they are a bit small length wise. I always order the same size of Vivobarefoot, but in these my big toe is jammed into the front of the shoe. I'll keep wearing them as I got a good deal on them and the online return will most likely cost a lot of money. just wish they were a tad longer. Others experience may vary.
