Reviews

Araba Leather Mens

When the first pair I ordered arrived, they were obviously too small. I returned them and ordered another pair and although these were a size larger, they were hard to put on and take off. Eventually, however, the sole where it turns upward to form the heel began tearing through the rubber because the last stitch joining leather to the rubber was placed too close to the edge of the rubber, Now it has torn through all the way to the hole in the upper part of the heel, above the red "Africa" shape. I'm going to try to fix this tear, but I don't hold out much hope. I need another pair, one size larger.

ABABA

Great shoe. light and looks good.

Perfect summer slip-on

These fit like a glove, and the suede-ish leather has a very distinctive color. As with all of the African-made shoes, they're very well done.
