Vivo's widest, simplest shoe pays homage to the original humans of the Rift Valley. Ababa is handmade in Ethiopia in collaboration with Soul of Africa, an organisation focused on creating opportunities for employment and education across the African continent. Africa range, speaking directly to the Laetoli footprints, the shoes are handmade in Ethiopia, empowering makers, supporting local communities.
CONSCIOUSLY CRAFTED SHOES - SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES:
Hand-stitched in Addis Ababa directly providing sustainable jobs, the shoes are made with Ethiopian-sourced Wild-Hide naturally tanned by our partners Pittards meeting international environmental standards. Sourced from Ethiopian small-scale, independent farmers this soft, flexible leather shows individual markings that reflect a life with freedom to roam.
Ababa shoes carry the Proudly Made in Africa award, as they are independently verified for their quality, materials used and ethical production.
