Addis is Vivobarefoot's minimal retro lace-up design. This shoe is made from Wild Hide, the naturally-scarred leather of free-roaming cattle, sourced from small scale farmers in Ethiopia. As part of their Made In Ethiopia range, the Addis shoes are handmade, empowering makers and supporting local communities. A portion of their profits generated by the sale of the Addis are donated to support local projects.
