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 across the African continent.
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).
Ababa is a simple, hand stitched, comfortable leather shoe on a mission. Profits generated by the sale of the Ababa are donated to the Soul of Africa Trust to support local projects in Ethiopia focused on building futures for disadvantaged kids.
Take your socks off and enjoy the best underfoot performance nature has to offer.
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.
African leather tanned by Pittards®, from the hides of free roaming animals that have lived a little and made love under the sun.
After learning now to walk properly, I converted from standard shoes to these shoes. My feet feel so free and I can actually feel things beneath my feet as I walk. No arch supports are needed when you know how to walk the right way. My toes can spread out and they love the extra room. The shoes are very well constructed. I have a second pair that I use for roaming around in the woods and the leather cover provides great protection from briers and sticks. Actually, I'm on my 3rd pair. Love these shoes!
These shoes feel so good and flexible. This shoe really does make me feel barefoot. Another thing that is a bonus: the sole on the heel. Such a great thing on the shoe. I can sit on the ground with my feet out and not worry about damaging the leather or hurting my heels. They also pass for shoes at work- at least the black ones.
