Reviews

Nice but runs small

I love the feel of the Ababa Canvas but it simply runs small. I need to return and order the next size up as my current pair (in my regular size) has my toes touching the end. I am hoping the next size up will fit better!

Delightfully simple shoe

Not much to say. This is a very simple pair of shoes, and I happen to find them quite comfortable. I'd prefer if they were flat black, but I'm not complaining. I'm considering drawing little faces on the gray spots or covering them up completely with waterproof black ink.

Love this shoe

Most favorite everyday shoe. Awesome if you don't wear shoes in your house like me because they slip off easily. If I have to wear shoes, these are my go to.
