Our Kids Ababa is a simple slip-on 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.
Take your socks off and enjoy the best underfoot performance nature has to offer.
African leather tanned by Pittards®, from the hides of free roaming animals that have lived a little and made love under the sun.
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.
This shoe is mainly made of leather.
These are the second pair of these we are trying. The stitching on the first pair came apart within a week. My daughter isn't wearing these so much as they gave her a blister on the top of her foot. Once that heals we will see how they hold up. It is fun for her to have a smaller version of the same pair of shoes as mama. These shoes also turn her feet a little blue from the dye. I am a fan of Vivo Barefoot and hope that the quality of this shoe is as good as it used to be.
The shoes are awesome. This is the second pair I got for my kids. A bit expensive. But my kids like them a lot. The design is super cool my kids love to look a t the stitching. Very durable and the kids seem to be comfortable in then. I will definitely recommend this and other products from this company.Thank you Jorge, Joao, and Jean Carlo
