Vivobarefoot Addis Womens Everyday Shoes
The Vivobarefoot Addis Womens Everyday Shoes bring together a smart, classic style with incredible comfort thanks to their wide and stable shape, thin sole and high flexibility. Made in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, a portion of the profits from these shoes goes back into supporting employment and education initiatives in the area.
Materials used are from renewable sources and the natural leather upper is from free-roaming cattle on small scale farms. This is paired with an Ababa 4mm sole, complete with heel rocker, for the most natural movement and ground feel. The shape of the sole takes inspiration from the oldest recorded human footprints, found in Tanzania and dating back 3.7 million years. A lace closure delivers a retro finishing touch and allows a dialled-in, comfortable fit.
