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).
Profits generated by the sale of Ababa are donated to Soul of Africa Trust to support local projects focused on building futures for disadvantaged kids.
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.
Neither tight nor loose and nearly disappear to the touch. The heel design hugs below the ankles with a brilliant cut. They fit like a hat and walk without shifting or sore spots. (I have a wide-dish foot so I would rate these middle width for my bias but I am compensating my evaluation based on that and the product description.) I have the desert boot too and they make the bulk of my hiking shoes obvious. I thought I would see wear on the souls with lots of walking but there is far less than any other shoe I've worn. I have yet to see if the white soul bottom's of these discolor but I have confidence in the brand.
I bought these for my 19 year old son, who was looking for a slip-on minimalist shoe that didn't look like clown shoes. The Swipe print on white is very summery and casual chic for a stylish young man. He loves them. Very comfortable and easy to wear. The design simplicity and vegan-friendliness also appeals to him. Thanks for making this special shoe design.
