I bought these for me and I think I made a great choice! These shoes have very thick, comfortable soles and inner part. Good quality, very nice leather, great value for money. I bought them one size smaler than what i usually wear and they fit perfectly.
Very nice and stylish shoes, the customer service is also fantastic, had a problem with the product and was responded to quickly and got the problem resolved ASAP
Love these! Unique! It comes with a life time warranty too. Service was fast and furious.
Bought a pair for my boyfriend and dad, both of them loved it. My boyfriend has a wider foot and the size he usually takes fit him properly. He just needed a few days of normal wear to fix the new shoe "snug" feeling and they feel perfect now. The shoe is made great, the sole is stitched to the body instead of glued, which will make it last a lot longer.
Great looking shoe. Im 9.5 size normally and went down a size. I had to break them in for a few days (rubbed both sides of the feet) before they fitted properly.
Confortable, quality seems good, great shoes all around.
Absolutely beautiful shoes with outstanding craftsmanship! I'm something of a indie-shoe-company fanatic, and I have to say these are my favorite to date. And the fact that you get to feel good about supporting a Fair Trade company doesn't hurt either!
Fits true to size and id definitely recommend as it is extremely stylish and the quality of the leather and stitching is top notch.
shoes fit perfectly, excellent quality and perfect style
Pretty nice shoe though at least in my size it comes with a pretty wide width. Have to wear thick socks with them.
The shoes I received were of remarkable quality, and the expediency with which they arrived was of commensurate quality.

My husband likes these shoes. I hope they'll last a long time, he goes through shoes quickly.
I've been wearing my Zabilo just about every day for three months now, and I am loving them. They are comfortable, and seem to be holding up well.
Zabilo Camel Pullup Review: Beautiful shoe. Soft to the touch inside and out. Fits true to size. When I first wore them they squeezed up against the outside of my pinky toe. That's all better now. Every once in a while I'll notice the shoe rubbing, but it disappears quickly. The laces come short, maybe 2.5 inches to work with, but I didn't find it to be an issue.The shoes stay on my feet. Lots of compliments when worn. I recommend the Zabilo! Thanks, Oliberte!
These shoes have an excellent look and feel. Even to the very details of the soles they are a work of art. I'm so excited to have my first pair of Oliberte!
Beautiful shoe Happy to support Oliberte, bought another pair today
Bought these for my husband about 5 mos ago. Love the stylish look and so far, they've held up well and been comfortable for him. Pretty true to size (he's a 13). The camel color is a bit brighter in person than on the site, but it's very nice and the shoes are eye-catching in a good way. My dad and brother want a pair now.
Bought these for a two week trip to Europe in summer. So far so good. My feet are normally pretty sweaty but these haven't been the best at breathing. Still love the quality and overall style!
Perfect casual style - exactly what I was looking for to wear with jeans or khakis. I've only just tried them on, but they fit nicely.
A pleasure to wear. A pleasure to look at. Very comfortable. Seem to be very well made. I am still new to the shoes but they fit very well. I like them very much.
Love the shoe, looks great and feels very comfortable. Only issue is that it is just one full size too big (awkwardly so). I bought the smallest size in the men's shoe as that normally fits me ok with other shoes. I would love to see a similar clean, classic leather sneaker in smaller sizes (anything in women's or 6/6.5 in men's) as I would absolutely buy another pair if I can get a good fit. These would easily be my favourite shoes if they were the proper size for me. Thanks for a great shoe, looking forward to more options in the future.
Love my new Olibertes. Can't wait to buy another pair.
Very comfortable, well-made and beautiful shoe. The leather has the aroma of a shoemaker's shop and I really enjoy the maps of Africa on the sole and insole.
I bought them on sale, but the are worth full price. A great pair of shoes.
As other reviewers have said, the shoes look nice and are good quality, but the way the leather is stitched there is a seam right along the side of your feet that really rubs when you start walking in them. After a few wears I think my feet developed some calluses, but be warned that they will hurt for the first few days of use at least. The shoes are also pretty low-cut, so I highly recommend wearing no-show or loafer socks with them. I don't recommend going barefoot due to the aforementioned issue with the front seams.
Great looking shoes that wear comfortably right out of the box. Just wish the soles had more rubber for a bit softer feel.
Love the shoes, and love the company. I will say the color is definitely lighter than it appears in the picture, but they are still very stylish.
The black pair I bought, do have a blue tint to them. I think it is part of the natural dye. It works out for me because I wanted them for work and they work with many of my business casual outfits. The blue makes them work a little better when I wear them outside of work. It makes them more tennis shoe like. I bought a 1/2 size up. I have wide feet at the front of the shoe. They fit well. I bought another pair of Oliberte shoes a half size down. They fit just as well. I think it is best to read the reviews, look at the shoe then how it looks like it would fit and make the size decision accordingly. I like this brand far more than toms. I am proud of my shoes.
Great shoes, great deal, great company! Love the style quality, fit and comfort. Highly recommend. This is not my first Oliberte pair of shoes nor will it be my last.
This is a well made shoe. Comfortable right out of the box, and I can tell it will only get more comfortable with age. Note: I wear a US woman's size 11, sometimes 12, and the Oliberte men's size 10/43 fits perfectly in length; this particular shoe is fairly narrow, so it doesn't flop around on my foot the way men's shoes usually do. I've definitely found my new favorite shoe brand.
Couldnt be more satisfied, great shoes
Good quality, nice looking shoe. However shoe is slightly smaller than expected (us11) - will take a few hours walk to get it in shape and comfortable.
I purchased these shoes very recently. I normally buy 8 1/2 wide shoes when shoes can be bought in various widths. The 9s I got are very comfortable - almost as comfortable as slippers. The shoes seem very well made. A word of caution though: The rustic brown color is rmuch more orange than the web site picture suggests. OK for a fairly casual occasion. I also bought a pair of the black ones and their colour is what I expected. They are just as comfortable, of course.
These shoes are very comfortable and they fit perfectly.
Comfy, cool looking, clearly made with a higher level of quality than a lot of similar sneaker-ish shoes
I use to buy "ecco" brand shoes which are made in The United Kingdom. The eccos cost me $225. I would wear them 2 to 3 nights per week after work and one day on the weekend. I've bought two pairs of Olibertes so far. The "Zabilo" which I'm reviewing here are an easy 10 out of 10 for the money...and a 9 out of 10 at any price of shoe I have ever bought. I saw one person who reviewed them said that Oliberte's sizing was off. My experience is the U.S./Cdn. sizing on the shoes I've purchased has been right on the money. I've worn this pair for a 6 hour journey at the Zoo on my second wearing. My feet were super comfortable while wearing them, and weren't unusually sore in any way after I got home. I've had compliments on the style of the shoe which includes a lot of "that's cool!" when I show them the bottom of the natural rubber sole...which happens to be a map of Ethiopia where they are made. Well done Oliberte - You have a customer for life.
Really love these shoes. First of all, they are beautiful and clearly handmade. They receive many compliments. Secondly, they are very comfortable. Although they take some breaking in, as with any leather shoes, they have great cushioning and arch support. Very pleased!
I ordered rustic brown, they are more of an orange color. Definitely not at all what is pictured. As the other reviewer said, they seem to have a weird spot between the toes and the tongue. I'm not sure if it's that it doesn't bend, but I do know that after walking in them all day, that part starts to really hurt. Hopefully it's just a break in problem that will go away. I like the idea behind the company, but that's 2 strikes against this particular shoe.
Beautiful, comfortable shoes. They do bend a lot in one place - between the toes and the tongue of the shoe. I'm hoping this doesn't overstress later on. Great shoes, though, overall!
Awesome shoes! fit is spot on, and the look is killer!
The sneaker looked great but it was not a US13, like I ordered. The box said 46/13, but It felt like I was squeezing my foot into a size 11.5. The sizing is off.
