Great shoes guys, you cant go wrong with these.
Nice shoes everyone, good fit, nice materials, comfy, even the 14 yr old approves!!!
First time I wore them it was accidentally on a rainy day - splashed with dirty puddle water on the way to work and I thought I’d ruined them! But after they had dried - the dirt just dusted off. I was so impressed! Lower arch support than I’d like though.
these were really comfortable from the day that i got them and they look great - thank you!
Love them! I bought them for their "ghostness" but would buy them again for their comfort and look.
LOVE these shoes. I think I've found a shoe that I'll actually buy again! I love how sturdy they are, I can wear them confidently while carrying kids or running after them. 10/10!
I was worried the cork wouldn’t be comfy but after 1 day they have moulded to my feet perfectly. Love the feel & shape.
Great unisex shoes, comfy, smart and knowing buy purchasing I’m making a positive choice for the planet is a good feeling. My new go to shoes!
Absolutely love these shoes. Stylish, comfortable and ethical. I try and buy most of my shoes second hand from charity shops but when it comes to dressy sneakers the pickings are slim. If I’m going to buy new shoes I plan to only ever purchase these from now on. I bought a pair for myself and the other 3 members of my family and everyone loves them. Thank you so much for making an all round great pair of shoes. Can’t wait til the day there are some more colours!
I had to do a lot of walking the day I first wore my Orbas, and they stood up to the test!
Getting these sneakers has made me realise every previous show I’ve ever owned is still sitting in the landfill and won’t break down in my lifetime. It made me feel sick.
It’s a relief to know that my Orbas will rot down when they are at the end of their life :)
These are without a doubt the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn!! I will certainly be buying more.
Love my Orba shoes! Comfortable and look great.
Love them. I was after simple white shoes I can dress up or down and these completely satisfy my needs. So comfortable, I've traveled in them spent more than 24 hours in them (on a plane!) And they still remain comfortable.
Can't fault them. Plus the whole background story to the shoes make them just that bit more special
I love the look of the shoes, but find them quite stiff in the sole so wouldn't wear them on long walks. Love the company ethos.
Love the look of these sneakers! Fairly comfy but wouldn't wear them on long walks...
Absolutely love how comfortable and light these are! I’m on my feet all day at work and walk everywhere in them and I can’t wait to get another pair xx
I was really hoping to love these shoes but I still don't find them comfortable to wear after several months and they are not flexi enough or with enough sole grip to walk up and down my steep slippery concrete driveway without slipping. I would still love to see
a laceless version in black!
Great pair of shoes, fits well with a good amount of streth. 6 Months of continuous wear, and soles and uppers have help up very well. After shoe brush, the off white colour comes back. Love them!
Really good fit even though my feet are slightly wider than normal. Feel good on my feet and feel good in my heart knowing they are made of sustainable non-polluting materials. Also good to support a NZ business. I'm looking forward to some new colours one day, although the cream colour, not white, is perfect for me.
Love these shoes. Super comfortable and look really nice.
Love these shoes so much! Super comfortable and sustainably made. LOVE!
Apart from being uber comfy and fabulous looking to dress up or down, it’s fantastic to know these are completely sustainable. Well done Team!
Loooooving these!!! Little Ghost feet are very comfortable, stylish and feeling totally noble wearing biodegradable, environmentally friendly footwear! My feet tend towards the wider side - even so they’re totally happy. Thanks, thanks, THANKS!!
These are my second pair of Orbas! I loved my first ones to the very end of their life, before sending them back to be upcycled Soooooo comfy!! Love this kaupapa!
Love em, just wish they came in more colours :)
I adore these wee fellas! I was a bit worried they'd fit like a skate shoe but they're so well proportioned and so COMFORTABLE. Highly recommend.
I was a bit nervous buying these online but they fit great! I really like them and have had a number of compliments on them already.
After beating cancer, my outlook on life and the environment of Mother Earth has changed. Being able to support a Kiwi company and Mother Earth is wonderful. The shoes are fashionable and so comfy! I get sore bones from medication, but these shoes feel just right.
As soon as I opened my Orbas I fell in love! You can really tell that these are a well made, top quality shoe. I love that they are biodegradable and environmentally friendly while still being aesthetically pleasing and relatively affordable. They fit true to size and the cork footbed is super comfy and feels supportive for my high arches. Love them! ❤️
I was worried that my wide feet wouldn’t fit well or be uncomfortable but these fit like a glove! And they don’t look like a wide style to the naked eye, so they don’t cramp my style
Very happy with this purchase! For me, it’s the perfect balance of understated to trendy. Added bonus is the ethics behind it all. Will be recommending to friends!
Look great, and reasonably comfortable so far. Although I do feel they will take a bit to soften and then I expect they'll be even more comfortable. I do find them trickier to get on, always having to loosen the laces first. Overall I'm very happy with them though, and love that I'm supporting a sustainable brand.
Love my new shoes! A great every outfit staple. I was worried about them hanging onto dirty being canvas but they have a repellent coating that seems to be doing its job. Very comfy and very happy!
Perfect - exactly what I've been looking for for a long time
These are very comfortable and so breathable with all the natural fibres. I like how they look, and I love the ethos behind the brand. The only slight concern I have is that I am on the heavy side, and occasionally on a heavy/awkward step I can feel the structure inside of the sole sort of collapse, and then spring back, so it will be interesting to see how the shoes last.
Very comfortable, even for wearing at work all day, and they look great!
Very happy with my shoes. I was worried they may not fit my slightly wider than normal feet, so got a larger size. They were too large, however I was able to exchange them easily. The correct size fit perfectly, and are very comfortable from first wear. Great colour for someone can't wear white. My only wish is that the laces were slightly longer (wide feet).
I love the way they feel! Super
Comfortable - great looking, classy while sporty- and awesome for the environment-
they tick all my boxes - so
Much so that I got a pair for my 18-year old for Xmas to wear in Sydney and spread the trend there!!
Love the shoes, beautifully made. Feel a little stiff at first but I'm sure I'll loosen them up in time. The only comment I'd make is that they're NOT good on wet concrete/pavement. The soles are very flat with no ridge detail, which means I'm going to have to put some grip tread or something on them, as I went skating the first time I wore them. We had a very light shower (so not very wet), just enough to give me fair warning that I'm going to have to fix them if I want to walk down any sort of slope. The path was on a slight decline.
I was considering a pair for hubby, but I think I'll wait until the sole is updated. I do a lot of walking so unfortunately these shoes wont be suitable for all surfaces.
Really comfy and stylish although I've noticed the cork insole seems to squeak a bit so any hints to help with that are most welcome!
Love my new Orbas, they are comfortable and well made! You won’t regret!
Bought 2 pairs - male and female. Fit was perfect from the moment they were put on. OK we are both in our 70's so a little help from a shoehorn (showing our age) is required. I (female) have trouble getting shoes that are comfortable owing to a rupturing my Achilles 7 times. The back of the shoe if not cutting across my scar and causing the foot to swell - so very happy. I never thought I would be seen going out wearing the same shoes as my husband, but both very happy to tell the story and pass Orba's name on.
The only suggestion I would like to make - have you ever thought of putting all the wording on one side of the bag. I love "now you see them now you don't" but also understand advertising is very important. If it is all on one side, then all is covered.
New Zealand needs more businesses like Orba looking after our environment.
I love these shoes! Was a bit unsure on buying shoes without knowing the fit, but they are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've ever had. I mainly wanted to buy them for the environmental attributes and I'm pleased with everything about them from the fit to the packaging. I have worn them in the rain and walking to and from work (around a 50 minute walk) and they are great.
The only downside so far is they are quite stiff to put on at first and I have a bit of trouble getting them on my feet. It's getting easier over time though.
I wear shoes until they unravel, so I'm curious to see how long they last. But so far I'm very happy.
They are very comfortable, no rubbing and fit me perfectly. Very pleased and they look great too!
Love my pair of Orbas! They are fantastic and perfect for summer. :)
Very happy with these shoes. They’re comfortable and look great.
Super comfy, love them
I love my new Orba shoes. I have wide feet and they fit very well. They are solid shoes that will last. I am a size 11 and they are true to size. I will definitely buy more pairs in the future. Great price for a great shoe.
Love them cute and comfy
Really happy with these. Would not usually buy shoes without seeing them in the flesh first but took a chance on these and am pleased I did. I think they are great value and would be happy to get another pair when I have worn these out. Such a great product.
Old woman with difficult feet needed walkers saw then on daughter in law ordered immediately - stiff for a minute then marvellous - am smitten
It looks great and trendy, but the shoes are a bit tight and firm. This is my first pair of sneakers, not sure how they are supposed like. Wish you to be the next Allbirds and gain popularity worldwide! Best of luck!
Super comfy and versatile. My go-to footwear since they arrived.
I like the shoe and the kaupapa behind it. Although these pair of shoes unfortunately didn't even last me a whole year. But this is maybe due to my life style or maybe I was crouching down to tie my shoe laces or picking up something too often, it started to rip and eventually just broke. I would wear this again but the life span was not what I was expecting :((
So comfortable and versatile... Dress up and dress casual. The perfect colour to do every event! Thanks Orba Love them to bits.
Love them! The perfect white sneaker, instantly comfy and go with everything, plus the added win of having super low environmental impact. Found my new go-to!
Orba, these shoes are the best! The most comfy sneakers I've ever owned - thanks so much !
I just love the look of these shoes! They are surprisingly comfortable but do need a bit of wearing in initially. They go with everything though and I love knowing that I'm wearing a shoe that is good for the planet. Ka rawe, Orba shoes!
LOVE my Obra shoes. Super comfy and great for wide feet. Shoe laces are a bit stiff but they have loosened up after tying a few times
I've been thinking about buying a pair of orbas for a long time but I'm always hesitant to buy anything that I can't try on first. However, the size guide was really helpful. These are ever so slightly on the bigger side of a 36, but still fit well and are extremely comfy and I figure it's a bonus that I have space for insoles if I want! So glad I finally bought a pair
These shoes are awesome for wider feet, they fit perfectly and are super comfy!
A little stiff for the first few days but have softened and are extremely comfortable. I have enjoyed letting people know where they come from when they have commented on how good they look.
I am enjoying wearing shoes that will not harm our planet when they are worn out.
Thank you for your care in the design and making of my new favourite footwear!
We are finally meeting up with our family for Christmas after the pandemic and have bought 6 pairs of Orba shoes as Christmas presents for them all!!!!
Thank you all for taking care of our planet!
I love how they look, but they take some wearing in as the soles are very firm.
The first time I wore them, my feet ached overnight (admittedly I didn't wear them in slowly but launched into a beach-walk).
The second time was better though I wore orthotics and wore for a shorter time.
Worn for the third time all day yesterday, no orthotics, outcome somewhere between the prior two wears so I think they'll be more comfortable over the next couple of times worn as the sole adjusts to my foot.
I love the concept and how they look, so will keep wearing but recommend going slow.
They very comfy and looks good too.
I love these! Comfy right from the start, and so good to know they're made ethically, unlike most shoes.
Love them! Super comfy - would highly recommend.
I find the shoes to be very comfortable and quite stylish.
Very comfy right out of the box and look great. Was worried the upper material would be stiff/scratchy but it really isn’t. Laces are a little tight to begin with and not the easiest to adjust. I usually wear a women’s US 7.5 but have a narrower foot- I went by the size chart measurements (my foot measures 245mm) and bought a size 38- they are a perfect fit, even with a slightly thicker sock.
A little stiff and the sizing is a little narrow for people with high arches and wider feet. But they are very well made and very comfortable. Well designed and attractive shoe that I know will last.
Really smart looking shoes. Still breaking them in but they’re very comfy to wear! Thank you, love what you do
Comfy and great look!
These Ghost shoes by Orba are so comfortable from the first step. They also look great with any outfit and occasion. I wore them to my friends 50th with a little black dress.
I love my Orbas, and have been spreading the word about how they're 100% biodegradable. Not only that, Orba is taking responsibility for their disposal. We need all our manufacturers to take a whole of life approach to their products so thank you to Orba for helping to lead the way!
Super comfy - I've worn them every day since they arrived
Truth be told these are stiff, so it's hard to get them on and off with my arthritic fingers. I'm hoping the inners will become more flexible with age; might replace them otherwise. I wore them while playing bowls all Sunday afternoon and my feet weren't too bad afterwards. No blisters or pinching at all.
These are super comfortable and lightweight. I can’t wait for more colours. Ka pai Team
Great shoes! Ethical and stylish!
Super comfortable and they look good with dresses or jeans.
Love them! So happy to be supporting such a great brand
Great shoe, even for larger feet! I’m a 42 and they fitted me perfectly.
I love these shoes! They are super comfy and look fire. Feel really good about them eventually breaking down in landfill, and durability isn't compromised because of it - mine have worn really well so far :) :)
Such great shoes - incredibly comfortable and really stylish.
They only problem with my order is that I only bought one pair, and not two! So far, all the positive reviews have been spot on. Happy camper right here.
Was dubious that they would be wrong shape for wide, short feet but there is plenty of space - wore them all day at work no probs
Really love these shoes so far! They are on the stiff side but as others have said, they didn't require any breaking in (no blisters!) And they feel like they will last a while
The most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn, and I have very blister-probe feet. They are lovely for summer and the ethical production makes me so happy! Will buy again.
They are so comfy!
Super happy with my new Ghost Sneakers! Great design which wear comfortably all day. Good to know they're ethically & sustainably made too ☺️ thanks Orba!
Love the look and style of these shoes and that they're so environmentally conscious. They're a bit stiffer than I expected so taking a while to soften up and my personal insoles fit but are squeaking, but hopefully those things settle once I break them in!
They’re a little stiff. The inner sole is a bit hard and the back rubs a little, but not enough to give me a blister yet. I love the way they look though, and they’ve been complimented a few times since I started wearing them. I’d been looking for environmentally friendly shoes for ages and it was so good to finally find some, so thank you! Keep doing what you’re doing!
These shoes are a surprisingly good fit, for a shoe bought online. They are comfortable, the heel fits particularly well. I like the colour, an attractive off-white.
My only dislike is the lacing style the shoes arrived with - it makes it very difficult to loosen the wide laces and shoe top enough to easily get a shoe on or off. I'll be changing the lacing style as soon as I can research one that is easier to work with!
Comfortable, stylish, and so great to know they can be 100% recycled!
A very comfortable pair of shoes. Comfort immediately and comfort all day. Thank you!
Love them, they look great and feel so comfortable
I had my doubts when ordering but IM EXTREMELY HAPPY!
nos a single complain, they are even more gorgeous than in the photos.
The size chart was great; I wasn't sure of the size, but they fit me perfectly.
Thank you for a great considerate product.
Absolutely love them! Comfortable from the very first wear. Stylish. Environmentally friendly. A great purchase. Thank you!
Love them soo much and the kaupapa is awesome. Everyone who has seen me in them asks about them and wants to buy some for themselves so I hope that you the love continues to spread.
Súper comfie but also supportive. And stylie too
