Oliberte

Friday, December 06, 2013


Oliberte started in 2009 as a way to support long-term change in Africa by sourcing materials and manufacturing its goods within the continent. By creating high-quality product that can stand on its own, the company has spread the word of sustainable change.

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!

Oliberte employs over 70 full-time workers who take care of everything from management to patternmaking to craftsmanship -- over 60% of employees are women! Employees have the right to form a workers' union, maternity leave, weekly doctor visits, and health insurance. There are even coffee beans and lettuce growing on the property for staff. Oliberte believes that fashionable, quality product can and should do good for the world -- they truly demonstrate it by supporting local jobs and economy in Africa, and by showing that workers everywhere should be treated with respect and pride.
