The world’s first fair-trade-certified shoe company, Oliberté calls itself a “sustainable lifestyle brand supporting workers’ rights in sub-Saharan Africa.” All shoes are made in a factory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Oliberté’s shoes come with excellent reviews from customers who are delighted with the product.
One popular choice is the men’s Gando boot (pictured above), made from a combination of goat and cow leathers, a jagged natural outsole, and cotton wax laces. Reviewers say it’s incredibly comfortable, warm in cold weather, fairly waterproof, with solid traditional-style stitching. There are many other options for men and women. Shipping is efficient.
