From the video.
Oliberte is an African footwear company making shoes, paying people well and taking care of them. While using the best materials on Earth.
After learning about this company, I feel this is the way to break the poverty that has been put upon Africa by corrupt Govt and out of country
There is only one reason Africa is poor, corruption. It is a natural resource power house with the population to make things happen. Perhaps this shoe
company is the way to level what is becoming an untenable wealth gap that is showing it's ugly head all over the world.
The shoes offerings are a mix of nontraditional and traditional with the good looks to satisfy any hipster neck beard or Gen X loaner. And they
supposedly take care of the workers and are sustainable with a cost that isn't out of the norm. I would rather give my Dollars or Crypto (when and if
that happens) to a company that allows workers to prosper with the company.
And this is the founder, Tal Dehtiar, going in front Canada's version of Shark tank in 2011, Dragons Den. They refused to fund because of cheap cheap
labor (China) and the cost of paying workers is too high.
Tal does not want to be a cheap labor exploiter and will pass if that is what is needed to be successful. Oliberte is trying to change the labor
market in Africa, working with the different countries to push wages UP.
2018 and Oliberte is still here.

They have a pair of boat shoes that look pretty nice....don't know if I can get away with spending 135.00 but for a good pair that's the going
rate...had my other pair for 5 years...I may consider this..thanks
Worth the money to buy good shoes,to fit my foot properly I need special made shoes,as my foot has extra large instep and my foot is 13 in by 6 in
wide,I wear Nikes or extra wide shoes,the sides rip,but for dress shoes cost like 600.00,so I avoid dressing up as I have like 3 pair,but not in
style, but then again I'm no slave to fashion
