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).
Ababa is a simple, hand stitched, comfortable canvas shoe on a mission. Profits generated by the sale of the Ababa are donated to the Soul of Africa Trust to support local projects focused on building futures for disadvantaged kids. Original prints by Akaso designed by Kara painters of Ethiopia.
Patented, ultra-thin, puncture resistant layer. 5x more puncture resistant than a standard sole of the same thickness.
Made in Africa in collaboration with the Soul of Africa social enterprise. Profits go back to supporting local employment and education initiatives.
Produced using animal free products and processes.
Love the idea of an ethical shoe and the feel of the barefoot soles. Didn't feel as good quality as I was expecting based on price and past experience of Vivos. The fabric also slightly rubs my ankle bones. Would love to see more Soul of Africa shoes in different styles.
I love these shoes! The canvas construction and barefoot shaped tread on the sole is comfortable. The print on the front of the shoe is super cool and really makes them stand out.They are special and I’m looking forward to wearing them all through the summer!
