MADE IN AFRICA, WORN BY THE WORLD
In 2003 Lance Clark, the 6th generation shoemaker who brought the world the Wallabee and Desert trek boot, was invited to Durban in South Africa to advise on the shoe industry. Witnessing poverty and unemployment Lance decided to pursue the idea to give the people the means, the ambition and the pride to help themselves through shoemaking.
From that beginning, Soul of Africa has been making shoes in South Africa, Tunisia and Ethiopia.
