BEAUTIFUL BUT RUNS SMALL. Gorgeous color and design. Leather is super soft, and sole is so comfortable. For size 38 they were very small. Order a full size larger!
I love them so much!! I usually wear a 6.5 so I ordered a 7 because I thought sizing up to an 8 would be too big, and the 7 is perfect for me! They're comfortable, well-made, and look awesome.
Make sure to order a size up as they fit small. Awesome boots...my second pair!!
I've had these shoes for a week and I'm really enjoying them. I ordered a size up, as recommended, and they're great. I generally wear wide width, but since these are leather, I knew they'd adjust me to and after a week of wearing them, they definitely do. I also love how squishy the heels are!! So frickin comfortable
I love the character of these shoes! Super comfortable but the perfect pop of fashion for work and leisure. I love wearing something from Ethiopia that is authentic, sustainable and life giving to all involved.
Warning - they run a bit small. If you're even remotely a halfsize, I'd say size up. Beautiful leather, they're truly impossible to put on at first but because they're real leather I know they're soften up. Stitching across toes is really tight but again, I think that will loosen with wear. Bought the wax to rainproof them, spot tested at the heel, and it did darken the color. I haven't decided on it yet, but they're super beautiful shoes and happy to have them in my closet!
very cute shoes. I had to fuss a little with the laces to figure out the right fit and look for me but the quality is great and I love the details.
Beautiful little boots. Got compliments from the first day I wore them. I, too, ordered a full size up and these fit perfectly. But when I tried ordering a different style boot in a size larger they were too big. Costumer service was GREAT. And they are shipping me a new pair.
Like others, I purchase a size up. The first few times I wore them it was a challenge to get them on - but these are not my first pair of real leather shoes. I knew I'd be breaking them in. Sure enough, many wears later, they are easier to get on and off. If they seem mildly tight on your first wear, just give it time. Also, you control some of the tightness with the laces - loosen it up if you feel too constricted. I did that and it's been totally comfortable since.
Amazingly comfortable and super cute. I took the advise of other reviewers and ordered a size up. They fit perfectly.
I wear a size 8, size 9 in boots, so got a size 10. Best shoe ever!!!
These are okay. I ordered a size up and still could barely squeeze my feet into them. I had to take out the soles, which worked, but removed the bit of cushioning these had, making them even more uncomfortable. I almost returned them but decided to see if the leather would stretch out. After a week of wear, it did stretch slightly, but there's still some pressure on the tops of my feet. Also, one shoe is much tighter than the other. Ultimately, they're not that comfortable, but I can tolerate them. They look decent and I like the sustainability, but I don't know if I'll buy any more shoes from here. They're just not comfortable enough for the price.
I got these shoes about a week ago and they have hands down become my new favorites. They are so cute, incredibly comfortable, and very well made. The leather is super soft and the attention to detail is on point. After reading reviews I did decide to do a size up. Usually I wear an 8 / 38. I opted for a 39 and they fit perfectly. I have received compliments every time I wear these shoes and love that there was no "break-in" period needed for a good fit. I will most definitely be ordering future shoes from Oliberte!!!
So first off, I'm happy these are fair trade. They are a nice lavender shade of gray. I went a size up like recommended and they fit perfectly like a glove! The things that I'm not happy with are the terrible amount of glue seeping out between the sole and boot. It looks very sloppy and there are little frayed ends of the stitching that I'm afraid will come apart. It looks like the thread was supposed to be glued under the sole. Overall I'm going to keep them, but I really wish the glue job would've been done with more care. I guess since I only paid $80 this is what I can expect: pretty nice but not perfect!
I am loving these shoes! I am 7 in flats and 7.5 in boots and the 8 are perfect. They look even better than I expected. They are so cute and comfortable and the color is so unusual. I love it!
Comfortable and stylish. These run small so definitely size up!
LOVE these shoes but they are sized much too small. I am always a solid 8 in shoes, but in these my toes are squished at the top. I have narrow feet but these are very narrow at the top of the foot. So sad they don't fit.
Very narrow, sized up and still couldn't get my foot in. Seems soft and cushiony otherwise.
These shoes are so funky and fun. I am grateful for other reviewers who suggested ordering a size up. I'm usually a 40 but got the 41 and they're perfect. I can tell they will get more and more comfortable with wear. I have a high arch so I do wish they had a bit more arch support. I have a narrow foot and they fit well. Probably wouldn't feel great on a wider foot.
Beautiful shoes! I got the light grey, about one size up. They're interestingly almost a lavender color in the right light, which I love. The right one is still a little tight, but I think they'll keep molding to my feet. Otherwise they're very comfortable.
I love these! I have received countless compliments. They are very stiff at first so be prepared for that. It also takes some time to loosen and tighten the laces to accomodate the tightness at first so just be prepared. I will order these in the other color in the fall!
These are WAY smaller than the size indicated. I love the look, so I ordered them and I ordered a full size up as per the other reviews. Not only were they still too small, they were way too tight across the top of my foot, to the point where even if I went another size up there is no way they could fit on my feet. If you don't have extremely flat feet I don't know how anyone could even wear them! If you tend to have higher arches, these will not work.
Instant favorite! I got them in brown and I absolutely adore them. They're so comfortable and versatile. I thought they would look too preppy but I've paired them well with a lot of different looks. They're currently my favorite shoes!
This are seriously one of the most comfortable pairs of boots I have ever worn and have been since day one. I love the style too and have had lots of compliments on them. Big Kudos to Oliberte for having great shoes that are Fair Trade!
Pretty and comfortable wedge shoes, but they smell like they got stuck in a campfire. I assume that the burnt smell will dissipate with time.
Beautiful shoe! I have been watching this shoe for months and finally bought it on a one-day sale. I have wide feet and wear size 8-8.5 I bought the size 9 and it is a little tight but still comfortable enough and probably will stretch out with use. Definitely size up. Great quality and looks very unique. Of course, it's also a great company!
I love these shoes! I purchased them most of a year ago and have walked many miles in them. They are so comfortable and yet stylish. I get so many compliments about them. I'm hooked on this company with what they stand for and their commitment to quality and customer service. I initially purchased too small a size, and they paid return postage for me to return them and sent another pair at no cost to me! (I ended up going up a size and a half, which is perfect for me.) This is an amazing company and I get to talk about them all the time when people ask about these shoes.
Super stylish shoes. I usually wear an 8.5-US but thanks to reviews ordered up. I ordered brown in a 10 and they fit great with the exception of my left side toe. Hoping they stretch in that area over time. Soft leather with a worn look.
One of my fav pairs of shoes! The comfort, style, perfect wedge, heel cushion. Great with jeans, dress pants or skirts. I got them just under a year ago in MEC. They are perfect for Canadian colder fall and spring weather before snowfall actually. A bit too hot in them in the warm weather. Super comfortable and stylish. Very impressed with how well they are made. I got a size up 9 from my regular 8. Will be looking for more styles to try and stores that carry this brand. Thank you OlibertÃ©!
I got one size larger, per the other reviews, and they fit perfectly. They are very cute and comfortable. Great purchase!
These shoes fit perfectly with just the right amount of heel. They are super comfortable to walk in. I am extremely thrilled with my purchase.
Super comfy and I love the style!
Brilliant boots! Didn't need any breaking in, so comfy on the feet from first wear. I sized up from 38 to 39 per the reviews here and they fit great.
I absolutely adore these shoes. I don't think I've ever received as many compliments as I have with these shoes. My one complaint is that they are VERY squeaky, even after several months of wear, but they are holding up very well and I love wearing them. Even though I'm quite tall, I love the extra boost in height they give me as well. I'm obsessed! I hope Oliberte comes out with more styles similar to this one!
Love the style of the shoe. Definitely need to break in the leather a bit, pretty stiff on first try. Can't wait to buy my next pair!
Love these shoes.. I'm normally a 6-6.5, and ordered the 7, and the fit is perfect. I keep the top two holes unlaced!
Great shoes - My first oliberte pair and not the last one - I have already ordered another one from the Amboa range. Totally converted to oliberte. Very comfortable and great quality.
The craftsmanship is superb!
I am really behind what this company is about, but I do have to be honest. These shoes are very cute and uniqute, but there were some down sides. I got the light blue, and the color wore away after a while. The back seam has split from wear. I also find the shape of the heel a little unstable for me. But despite that, I wear them all the time, with pants and skirts. I really do like them, and I want the company to keep making them, which is the point my comments. Thanks for what you do, OlibertÃ©!
Lovely shoes, second pair of Oliberte. I love their hip style and received many compliments. They fit fine with same size as I regularly wear perhaps due to my feet being a bit slender.
Very sturdy and unique shoe. I sized up from my usual 38 to a 39. I find it tight - not in the length, but at the top of the shoe around the laces. Pretty sure that won't take long to break in. I used the gorilla wax and it darkened the leather to a rich, deep orange brown. I love the color! Quick shipping, love the lifetime warranty. I'm looking forward to enjoying these shoes for years to come. Thanks Oliberte!
I've been eyeing these beautiful boots for a long time, and finally ordered them. They are absolutely lovely! I'm glad I sized up as suggested.
This company is so much fun to work with from start to finish! I wanted to keep the remarkable Oliberte shoes (talk about branding) but in the end was afraid the sole was not wide enough to prevent turning an ankle on the cobblestones of Ireland!
I love these boots. So beautiful, but unfortunately, they run VERY small. I am normally a US size 7 and so I ordered an 8. The 8 is even so small I can't get my foot into it. And now they are out of 9s. I am so disappointed. Hopefully they can fix the sizing issue and will re-release these boots.
As with any boot, you are supposed to buy them in one size bigger for a proper fit. These boots are comfortable and very cute. I get compliments everywhere I go. They go with a lot of different styles and fashions as well so they are very versatile. It only took one day to break them in but now they don't hurt my feet anymore.
I LOVE these shoes. I bought them in brown size 41 and they fit perfectly. They get more comfortable the more you wear them, and when you put on the gorilla wax they turn an even more beautiful reddish brown. I have definitely been wearing these a lot! Thanks and keep up the awesome work Oliberte. You know have a life customer and an advocate for your Fair Trade company.
Beautiful shoes, but definately run small. Trying to exchange for next larger size now.
These shoes are as cute as expected. I followed the recommendations by other reviewers for the sizing and it worked great. They fit well and look great.
My larger size does not look or fit like the small sizes as I did try on a 40. The left boot was marked in several spots upon arrival.
These boots are lovely color and very cute. One shoe seems to be a bit smaller than the other, this is noticeable because my other foot is the one that is normally a bit longer, and that one fits perfect. And with lace up boots, the laces need to be a little longer. By the time you loosen to put on and tie, you are left with very little. And I have narrow feet. But I really appreciate the concept of this company, and I wish you much success.
These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned! I have a high instep and they were a little tight on the tops so they needed a little time to break-in (about a week). But the sole is nice and thick so they are great for walking. I have gotten so many compliments on them. I am very happy with my purchase!
These boots exceeded my expectations all the way! I originally ordered them because they looked good and I love what oliberte stands for. But once in my feet, they became the best pair of boots I had ever purchased in terms of look, feel and comfort! I had to do an exchange (originally ordered a size up as per suggestion, but turned out true to size) and the customer service and communication were top notch. Best experience all around! Thank you very much =)
It's like my feet live in butter :) I was worried because I was unable to go a size up as recommended in the comments (because they were out of that size), but my usual size 7 fit great! I can't wait to wax them and break them in.... Squeeeee!
The adorable camel shoes are just that...adorable. They fit wonderfully well, look like a million bucks and I can only thank you!
Amazing shoes! All the reviews were right they are very tight on the top part of my foot but I know they will relax once I break them in. They fit true to size. These are so beautiful and the quality in stitching and material is suburb!
My purchase came sooner than I anticipated. I love the look, except I will need to have them stretched a little, because my foot is too wide for the boot. I would (& have) recommended this purchase to my friends.
I LOVE these shoes. Perfect right out of the box! My only issue has to do with the glue used to keep the sole attached. After the third wearing both shoes separated. However I bought shoe glue and I believe the problem to be corrected.
Comfortable right out of the box. The only issue I've had has been the sole separating from the shoe after the third wear. I bought a clear shoe adhesive that seems to be working fine so far but otherwise I'm in love with your product.
Love love love these shoes! They are very firm, but being leather will soften up and be even more comfortable. They are a bit more camel coloured than the picture seemed, but I put the wax on them and they darkened a fair bit. I had some trouble with the stitching on the first pair and got in contact with Paula about the warranty. She gave me a paid postage address and sent the new ones as soon as I told her that I sent the original ones back, best customer service ever! Very impressed, will recommend even more to my friends!
Love these shoes and what they stand for! Shipping was so fast! Thank you!
I am loving these shoes! They're beautiful, and the souls are so unique!
Beautiful shoes. The leather seems to be very high quality. The tongue of the shoe seems a bit stiff, but I am hoping it will soften with a little wear. The shoe overall seems comfortable. I love this wing tip boot style. I am happy to get these high quality, stylish shoes from a company that helps others--a win-win!
These are really beautifully made shoes. The leather is gorgeous, the style flattering, the color perfect for a variety of outfits. I look forward to wearing these with everything from jeans to work-appropriate dresses in my fall/winter wardrobe. After reading other reviews, I sized up, so they fit fine, but of course will need to be broken in. This is my first purchase from this company, but it will not be the last. I'm so happy to have found a fair trade company producing such beautiful, practical, and high quality shoes. (But yes, if you buy these, do size up.)
Most adorable boots I own. These are made SO well. The quality was even better than expected. Beautifully made. I do wish I had listened to other reviewers concerning the size though. Mine are a bit tight and they were final sale. Hoping they stretch a little. Order a size up!
I am IN LOVE with these boots. I ordered the wax with them and it gave these shoes such a nice finish. The Camel color was a little more orange than I thought but the wax darkened it a bit which was really nice. Like the other reviews said, I ordered a size up, I am usually a US 8 so I ordered the nice and they are perfect. Time will tell how great these shoes are in the winter, I am going to be using these as my everyday boots for this fall and winter in Canada. These are so pretty in person, and sooo comfy. Cannot recommend enough!!
These shoes are gorgeous! Absolutely quality hand crafted goods as described. I will agree with others in regards to the sizing recommendation, I am normally a US 8 and opted for a 39. Can't wait to rock these this Fall
they're perfect. high quality. sightly uncomfortable at first as all good leather products are, but really, very wonderful shoes.
very happy with the construction of shoe. top quality leather. had to return the first order wear size 7 and had to size one size up. to 8. but once i got the 8 they fit perfect.
Love my Dark Grey Nubuck Lalinas! Oliberte has the BEST service. They happily exchanged 3 pairs of shoes to help me find the perfect ones.
These shoes are FANTASTIC. I ordered a 36 and regularly wear a size 6, and at first they were TIGHT. They pinched a little at the very bottom of the lacing. That said, these shoes are 100% leather and guess what, leather breaks in! Now the shoes are like perfectly formed to my feet. They are gorgeous and pair with seriously anything from dresses to jeans and work to the bar. My only criticism would be that where the leather meets the sole in some parts it seems like it might lift eventually.. but no problem so far!
I got these in both black and brown, and they are BEAUTIFUL. Currently breaking them in, but they look great and I've already gotten compliments. One thing I will say though is that these DEFINITELY fit small. I have a size 10 foot (every once in a while I need a 10.5/11 cause of my long toes), and the 11s fit like a snug 10. Size up and you'll be happy!
I got the Lalina in Dark Grey Brushed Wax, and ordered a size up. They are beautiful, very comfortable and nicely made. The tanning of the leather is a little uneven (the tongue on one boot was lighter than the rest), but it just adds to the artisanal feel. Highly recommended!
These shoes are amazing! I ordered them in dark grey brushed wax, but they look lighter than in the picture. I was impressed by the quality, it is way better than I expected and these boots look really cute. I wore them for only a day and got compliments from a few friends. Also, shipping was fast, it arrived in 3 business days.
The quality and craftsmanship of this shoe is amazing. After reading previous reviews, I decided to order a size up, and I'm glad I did. My toe box is wide but my heel is narrow, but the shoe fit perfectly. I am so happy with my purchase. I would love to have every color.
They are one of those shoes that when you walk up to meet a friend, they have to talk about your shoes right away. These shoes complete me. Super comfy too.
I don't want to be unfair and give boots that are admittedly beautiful a bad review based on sizing, so I'm giving a good rating, but posting my complaint about sizing here. The size 11 is not actually a size 11 (which is normally an EU size 42). It's an EU size 41 which is a generous size 10 at best. I didn't notice the sizing issue before ordering and was so disappointed to discover that not only were the boots way too small when they arrived, but also that a company that is often promoted as an option for women with large feet doesn't actually carry a proper 11. I'm hopeful Oliberte will expand their line to carry EU 42 in the future, as they're beautiful boots.
Awesome pair of boots. Great super soft leather. I have received compliments already on them!
I love these shoes. They're comfortable, look great, and are very good quality.
Love the shoes and love everything that this company stands for. They are very comfortable, easy to match with anything and I have received tons of compliments already. This is my first pair of Oliberte shoes, and I will definitely be buying again in the future.
