With supreme quality, leather lining, leather uppers, and crepe rubber soles, the premium footwear brand Oliberté presents the Obida chukka boot. This clean and versatile chukka boot will have you looking sharp in any stomping ground.

What’s most astonishing though, is that Oliberté is the first international shoe company to market casual footwear that is solely made in Africa. In addition to the aesthetics of the Obida chukka boot’s understated style, Oliberté focuses on its overall brand philosophy and aims to play a role in creating a sustainable economic system in Africa.

"The only real way to alleviate poverty on this beautiful continent is to build a middle class with fair paying jobs," says Canadian owner Tal Dehtiar. "And if we can build a successful company that also helps build Africa, then maybe we can inspire others companies to follow suit."
