Boot wearing season is upon us as autumn graces. If you’ve worn out your old boots, now may be the time to invest in a new pair of classics. Sustainable lifestyle brand Oliberté features womens and mens footwear that is timeless and comes with a lifetime warranty.
For Fall/Winter 2017, Oliberté’s womens collection features the round-toe Yabela boot – above the ankle boots in goat leather and a slight rubber wedge sole, and Nabali – kiltie boots with a removable fringe that adds a light touch to a bold and sturdy boot.
The mens Fall/Winter 2017 collection features Lallo – a mens capped-toe boot made from cow leather and a raw rubber sole, and the Mullo X McNairy – a mens ranch boot in suede.
Oliberté is a sustainable brand supporting workers’ rights in sub-Saharan Africa. The brand – which sources locally and uses sustainable and eco-friendly materials where possible – started life in 2009 as a small footwear company partnering with factories and suppliers in Africa.
With a focus on creating fair jobs and workers’ rights, Oliberté partners with suppliers, farmers, and craftsmen to produce premium products.
Since 2012, Oliberté has been manufacturing its collection at its own factory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. In September 2013, Oliberté’s factory became the world’s first Fair Trade Certified™ footwear manufacturing factory.
