About us

Our handcrafted boots & shoes are made of high-quality leather and are made in a small factory in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa. Our style is clean and unisex, making our shoes suitable for everybody, every day. In fact, our mission is to give everyone sustainable & stylish shoes without compromising comfort. We’re based in Amsterdam, but Ethiopia is where our journey began. In 2015, in a barbershop in Addis Ababa, we came across a man wearing a fine looking pair of leather boots. We asked him where he had picked up these great looking shoes and he led us to a factory of highly skilled craftsmen where the boots had been made. At this moment, we knew that we had to create our own style boots using Ethiopia's finest materials and our Amsterdam influence. So, we decided to create a sustainable footwear range handcrafted by local experts. In April 2016, TDleatherboots was born. However, perfection doesn't come straight away and much of our time at the start of our journey was focused on quality control. It's essential for us to bring to you the highest quality shoe, ethically made in a developing nation. Updating our models continuously enables us to ensure that we fit your feet with the most comfortable and stylish shoe possible and that's what we have today!

 

Proudly made in Ethiopia

We are proud to work with local designers and shoemakers to ensure our boots & shoes are truly authentic. Our commitment to ethical trade and investing in our country of origin means we will never make our shoes anywhere else. Our bootmakers work in a proper factory, in good conditions and we pay a fair price for their craftsmanship.  

Mission 

Our mission for the future of TD is to create shoes that not only look great but also help local communities in Africa while supporting the longevity of sustainable fashion. In fact, we believe so strongly in working towards a fair and green world that 1% of our yearly profits will be going directly towards communities and charities that support fantastic and urgent causes. As we grow, we will share with you exactly which projects and organizations we will be helping out so that you know precisely what you are supporting by wearing TD's on your feet. So let's bring TD leather boots to the world together and make sure that the future of fashion is sustainable and honest!
