Ababa Leather Kids

Ababa Leather Kids - Botanical Green
Botanical Green

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.

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).



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.


  • Sticky rubber rocker outsole – for amazing grip
  • Wild Hide Leather – naturally scarred and durable

Cute miniature version of grown up shoe

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.

Awesome shoes

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
