For Oliberte's Fall 2013 line, they introduced a new combat boot style (the Mibio), several new colorways, and reintroduced signature styles. The boots vary from traditional chukka to military styles with a rugged African inspiration, and style excellently for outdoor jaunts or days in the office.
These boots don't only look good; they also tell a story: They are made with over 1,000 stitches from African leather and rubber by Oliberte's craftspeople in Ethiopia who are paid and treated fairly. Plus, the shoes are handcrafted for quality and guaranteed to last, with a lifetime warranty against defects.
I was able to review the Toria chukka boot. They're definitely study - I would recommend breaking them in before wearing them out. Afterwards, they're pretty comfortable & I love the look of the moccasin toe front!
