I wear a size 10.5 in Merrell boots, Vans and Reebok Nanos. I wear an 11 in Altra Lone Peaks trail shoes and Tera Hurricane sandals. I also have a medium- wide foot and the US 10/ EU 43 in the Narivo fit me very well considering that I have about 1/2 of an inch of space at the toe. I am fairly active and like my shoes to be more or less snug. However, I plan on using these shoes for casual and semi- formal occasions, so the extra bit of space doesn't bother me. If you prefer a more snug fit I would recommend sizing down, too bad there are not half sizes. I really like the style of these shoes, specifically that there is no heel (like in a traditional Oxford) making for a suave, low profile look. Plus the leather is a sort of matte, which allows for multi- occasion use. Read "Our Story".
I do believe Oliberte has replaced Doc Martins as my 'go to' casual shoes. Quality is excellent and they have a certain elan missing from mass manufactured China product. They run a little to the large in terms of sizes, but require arch inserts for me since are essentially flats so it's all good. This is also my first purchase.
Nice pair of shoes. Soft, sturdy, and well made. Only issue is that it is quite narrow...and the size definitely runs large.
So far amazed! The night I got the pair of Brown Narivos I put them on and my wife and I went out to dinner. The shoes felt as if they were my oldest most broken in show. On Friday I wore them all day at work and then my wife and I went to Disneyland and walked all over the park! Totally comfortable.
Love these shoes! Just as comfortable as the last pair and I love them just as much!
Advice on fit in these reviews was spot-on. I'm usually an 11, and the 10 fits me just fine. These do indeed tend to run wide, but even on my narrow feet it's not a huge deal. They do indeed have some "character," but they are very stylish and the quality appears excellent. And the story of these shoes does matter to me. Very pleased!
Love these shoes! I usually wear a 10.5 in US shoe size, but heard that these can sometimes run a touch big. Went with size 43 and they are perfect. They're comfortable and look Great!
Comfortable shoes that fit well for my size 10D feet. Soft leather and cushy soles. Retro style. I replaced the insoles with a pair of Superfeet blue insoles and they fit great. Nice to support a fair trade company trying to make a difference in Africa.
The Nubucks look great! They fit a bit small on my left foot but they may need to be broken in a bit. The colour is closer to a blue. It would be great to have more of a grey colour with this shoe. However the shoes do look to be fabricated very skillfully! I also bought a pair of the Tompa boots and they look awesome! I am very happy with Oliberte and I've been recommending them to all of my friends. Free trade, Human rights, Environmental Stewardship, Canadian and Ethiopian partnership and quality shoes that last! What's not to like?
I purchased my Naviros when they were made with a smooth black finish. They are my everyday "dress" shoe. they are extremely comfortable. I dont know why they quit making them in shiney black. It is a classic shoe that goes with everything. Awesome product!
I've worn these shoes numerous times a week over the past year and they're fantastic. They have held together incredibly well through the rain, snow, and salt. They still look great and are exceedingly comfortable. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a nice casual leather shoe. I've turned my best friend and brother on to them and I am getting a different pair from Oliberte this winter. They are definitely made to last and I don't have to worry about replacing them anytime soon.
I love my new shoes, and I love your mission. I ordered a size down because of the suggestions from other comments, and they fit so so well. These shoes make me feel like me.
My favorite pair of shoes hands down. Cole Haan has got nothing on Oliberte. I bought mine when they still came in green about 6 years ago. I've had them ever since, still fit like a glove and are incredible comfortable. They can be a little hot at times in Tampa, FL, but I love them to much to even notice.
Great shoe, works well with jeans or chinos for business casual. A bit to raw for proper dress slacks. Very comfortable. Size is on the narrow side (more of a European fit)!
Great shoe, perfect fit (ordered 1/2 size small), and arrived several days before I expected. Could not be happier. Feels good to know that this shoe is fair trade and that an honest wage is being paid for honest work!
RUNS BIG. These are amazing shoes, super high quality, super comfortable and obviously you gotta love the Oliberte story. But FYI I'm a 12 and got size 11 and they fit perfectly, maybe even a little big. So definitely order one size down.
Loved the design, quality and comfort. They definitely ran a little bit big, I own 3 other pairs of Oliberte in other styles and always wear a 44, however, I needed a 43 here. I would factor that in to your order.
Great shoe overall. It is however much too wide
ordered these shoes for my husband & had to send them back, much to his disappointment...they are really wide! his feet were practically swimming in them; he does have relatively slim feet, but not to the point of needing narrow shoes (although if these came in a narrow, he would). too bad because they looked really well-made, versatile, and have a classic style. plus, the shoe company that makes them is rad.
I could not be more stoked on these shoes, not only are they very aesthetically pleasing but morally responsible (supposedly this in the internet after all). They are very soft to the touch made from what feels like a high quality leather. I have been looking for a pair of nice casual leather shoes, these fit the bill perfectly. They go great with jeans or nicer office attire with out looking out of place. I purchased the dark grey which were more blue than grey. After i added some water proofing leather conditioner they darkened up beautifully. Not the most comfortable shoe out of the box unless you have super flat feet as there is no arch built in to speak of. After some quality insoles they fit great and are comfortable for all day wear. I found a couple small imperfections and inconsistencies which i feel adds a lot to the authenticity of the shoe and the mission of the company. Bottom line these will not be my last pair of Oliberte's
Extremely happy with these shoes! I found the fit to be right in line with my "normal" size - 44. For NIKE sneakers, I'm usually a 45. The quality of the leather is top notch - they look and feel very well made. And the styling is just "different" enough to be cool.
awesome these are the best shoes
Really stylish and its rare for such a nice shoe to be so comfortable! Excited for whats next.
Fit's slightly larger than expected
raveled Europe with these shoes. Didn't want to look like a tourist and I think they worked well for me.
Killer oxford style. Great for the summer. My wife bought these for me and they are super comfortable.
Really liked the style of these shoes, but the 46 was too small...felt more like a 12 than a 13...and they don't make it in a 47, so I reluctantly had to send them back. There's not much arch support in them, which I didn't mind, but if you need arch support, it might be an issue.
