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.

This is my first time trying a Vivo Barefoot product. I really like the make-up of the Ababa, lots of space for your toes to spread, but fits snugly around the upper foot so doesn't slide off. High quality material, and the rubber heel makes it easy to slide them on.Still getting used to the minimal sole and lack of cushioning but this is a transition that will take some getting used to.Very funky looking shoe, the pattern takes away from the wide look which I like
Great shoes. Wide and really comfy, but they are also very secure and don't fall off.
