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.
A friend sent me the link to these shoes as she knows I have a love of African cultures and designs. I love that there is an option to have a wide foot bed! I returned my pair as they were a half size too large. I usually wear an 8. I think the 7 1/2 would work for me. I enjoyed the painting on these shoes but realize its too bold for my everyday.I'll be watching for the other painted style to come back in my size.Overall I think this is great concept and will definitely be sharing with friends.
Where do I start? The project behind the shoes? The design? The comfort? The feel? I love everything about these shoes, they are my definite to-go, no matter the occasion, with or without socks. Bonus point: for people who drive a lot, the rubber sole going up the heel makes for a perfect driving shoe. I wear US9, bought these in US9/EU40, they fit perfectly. If they had other designs in my size, I would've bought more.
