The Ababa, it's minimalist, slips on, lux leather featuring a flexible hand-stitched sole with a bare-footprint design inspired by the oldest recorded human footprint, enabling natural movement like our ancestors. Slip on and off with ease for a natural barefoot style.
Crafted from naturally scarred leather of free-roaming cattle sourced from small scale farmers, The Ababa features the Ababa Sole with a 4mm ergonomic hand-stitched sole and heel rocker. Its signature footprint design is inspired by the oldest human footprints ever recorded, dating back to around 3.7 million years ago in Tanzania.
Handmade with care in Ethiopia, The Ababa is Foot-shaped (not shoe-shaped) to let your feet do their natural thing, providing natural stability while enabling you to feel more. Our collaboration with Pittards ensures that a portion of our profits goes towards supporting local employment and education initiatives.
This footwear is made from renewable natural materials and contains no insole, keeping you grounded and even closer to barefoot. Feel everything, every day with The Ababa.
