Bought Dawson's from Canada, similar to Lallo's from Ethiopia. The present shoes are made with thicker leather and better soles. I'm hoping they soften up like the Lallo's. The increase in price hopefully goes to the workers in Canada. I paid $104 for the Lallo's and now $168 for the Dawson's on sale.
I had bought Oliberte shoes made in Africa and was very happy with them. The Dawsons are an almost exact duplicate of an African named shoe I had previously bought. I hope the stiffer leather softens up. Also the soles are thicker.
Great boot, well made. Get you some
These were my 6th pair of olibertes and I have to say I did not expect such an increase in quality from the older styles to this newer style. Not to say that the older ones were bad but they definitely have been improved greatly. The sole, being a vibram sole, is of course fantastic. The boot fits me a tad tight in the toe box but that's ok since it has become much more comfortable after breaking in. Compared to a lot of other boots these were surprising easy to break in despite the leather being very durable. I would definitely recommend you pick up a pair asap!!
My first pair of Dawson's but not my first pair of Oliberte shoes. As always the quality and comfort is second to none, really excited this brand is continuing it's journey in the Canadian market.
My third pair of Oliberte boots, first from Canada. I love them; tough and great looking. I bought the Kodiak Brown as I think they will age and mellow beautifully. I live in Australia and we have a wide temperature range, dry summers and wet winters. Boots have to be tough. I go up a size and wear woollen socks. Great for walking, travelling, and exploring the hidden alleyways of large cities. My boots have climbed volcanoes, crossed oceans, been lost in rainforests, and parked under cafe tables whilst sipping coffee. Get a pair and put some miles (kilometres), under them.
Quality construction, stylish, and ethically sourced. Soothing to the feet and the soul...in style!
I bought the Dawson's and am so happy with them. High quality and comfort! I wore them around on a trip to NYC and my feet stayed dry on the wettest of days. I will definitely be buying another pair!
True to fit
This is my first week in my Kodiak Brown -Dawson boots and I'm excited at the quality and comfort this footwear offers. When I received my boots I could smell the quality leather through the box. Then I put them on...It was like meeting somebody for the first time and knowing that you would be life long friends. Yes, there will be a break in period, but I know that the relationship of these boots with my feet will only get better.
