I really do love everything about my orba shoes. They fit really well and they are really comfortable. They look smart and my feet breathe really well inside the natural fibre materials. Everything appears to be very sturdy and of excellent quality. No shortcuts taken with the production, just genuinely high quality. My only wish is that they came in a few other colours as I don't know how I am going to manage to keep them looking white. I would wear them a lot more except that being white I have to limit the environments that I wear them in.
My friend recommended getting a pair of Orba shoes to me, as I could see she was on her second pair! There and then I clicked ‘add to cart’ and have had no regrets! This is actually my second pair because my boyfriend adopted my first pair after realising that they didn’t cramp his style AND were INCREDIBLY comfy! I tend to sweat and normally any pair of my sneakers start squeaking, but so far so good with Orba! I can wear all day with no worries! I’ve been recommending Orba to all my friends and love the kaupapa behind their sustainable brand! Thanks guys!
I walked a long way in these shoes the first time I wore them and they stayed comfortable from day one. And they look good! Also, when they arrived, there was no plastic in sight: even the packaging was considered. Thank you Orba!
Beautifully crafted comfy shoes. Feels great to tread lightly also. Very happy with my purchase look forward to many kms together
I've been always struggling to find the right casual every day shoes. Let along for them to be comfy and of my size. When I ordered Orba I was so sceptical and unsure if the material/ colour would fit with the majority of my casual outfits. My feet are size 40. For those lucky enough to have smaller feet - you would never know the struggle of your feet being the actual eye sores when you put a nice outfit together. Some shoes make my feet look a couple of sizes bigger and when I say it is a struggle to find shoes that meet all my high criteria, I bloody mean it. First time I wore my newly bought Orba shoes, I thought I was making a mistake cause I knew I will be out of the door at 6.30 am and I was unlikely to come back in till, at least, 8pm. The whole day consisted of moving around. Not only did I never regret my decision, Lord or Lord, I've ordered another pair on my lunch break that same day. Not a single regret! They look very sleek, casual, super thin on my wide feet (I have no idea what kinda magic that is!), and they also make you about 2 cm taller too. I bought both of my pairs from the sale/clearance section (about $70 NZD each pair) where it says that the shoes come with minor aesthetic Imperfections. I have no idea what Imperfections these guys are talking about as I could not notice anything unusual. And, by the way, they were true to the size! Which, again, is such a problem. Some shoes sized 39 fit me best, some 41, and I've even owned a pair of shoes size 42 (what the hell). Some of my friends noticed the new shoes and been asking questions. I think my mad as enthusiasm about my new pair of Orbas kinda scares them.. Anyway, hope this review helps some other woman to pair her pair of perfect shoes. P.S. the only fault i can think of is kinda obvious. The shoes are white and not leather - so not that easy to clean. I've sprayed mine with the sneakers protection though.
I love how they wear. The more time I spend in them the comfier they get.
The cork insole is great, and I can feel the softness through the heel.
Love these shoes! They are so comfortable and the look great. You can tell they are well made and the sustainable materials and packaging are both aesthetically pleasing and environmentally conscious. Have already recommended to all my family!
I absolutely love them! So comfy from the first time I wore then and look so nice too, not to mention the story behind them! I’m telling all my friends to get some!
Love them! These are the comfiest shoes I've owned. The off-white fabric look is fantastic, plus these shoes pair well with any outfit!
Love these shoe! Super comfortable and I love the sustainable production process.
So happy with my Ghost sneakers! So stylish and go with everything! Plus they are more comfy than you would think. I absolutely love them.
Great shoes. Even though they were seconds condition they were still very good. Loved that they came with a bag. It's now my go to bag for taking the kids to the park. Only gave 4 stars as I really wish they came in more colours and they had a slight smell when first out of the box (I'm just overly sensitive to smells)
Love them, super comfy and smart :) great for wearing everyday
Great shoes, and really good value with the seconds I bought - look like new! Very comfortable, love that they are ethical, NZ start up.
I love the concept of these shoes! Love the way they look.
I’m not sure what is technically wrong with them from quality control because they look pretty perfect to me.
Only thing that brought the review score down for me was the tightness of the shoelaces in the eyelets. Very hard to pull the laces through which makes it tricky to don off and on.
Other thing is the back of the ankle could definitely rub and give blisters (not heaps of padding back there) if socks aren’t covering your skin.
Otherwise wear really well and receive many compliments on them.
Love them! Super comfy, true to size and stellar quality
I like the look of the shoes. They are light and comfortable, and I appreciate the fact that the insoles are removable.
I'm usually quite nervous about ordering shoes online, but I was so taken with the description of these shoes, plus a friend of mine has a pair and she absolutely loves them.
I was particularly keen to have a vegan pair that looked great and were super comfortable. And they've turned out perfectly! They are a perfect fit and they look great. I've worn them lots in the couple of weeks I've had them and will be telling all my friends about them too.
They need wearing in as they are a bit firm across the top, I am used to Allbirds so that was not anticipated! They also got stained walking in grass on their first outing which sucks.
My orba shoes are comfortable and fit with a variety of outfits. I love my orba shoes and the tote bag they come with.
Recently bought a pair through the seconds sale and can hardly tell! Love supporting businesses that minimize waste
My new Orbas are so pampering, hugging my feet in prefect comfort. I'm truly in love! I was looking for vegan sneakers for quite a while, to go with different outfits,and these Orba beauties were a great match! Happy with them and waiting for more colours to come...
Stylish without breaking the bank, comfort beyond belief. Ideal for work (I’m on my feet all day) but equally smart enough for nights out. Love Orba!
I got a size bigger than usual, because length wasn't quite right for smaller size. I use an additional insert in my shoes that works fine.
Its hard to get sizing right for shoes without width A,B,C etc being possible, I get it.
Wont stop me buying them. They are comfortable and I can use them for my power walks and everyday activities.
This is my second pair already. Love, love, love them.
Not just how well they fit and how good they look but also what they stand for!
I will use my older and tattered pair for 'around the house' and the new one day-to-day when out.
I love my Orba shoes. They fit well, are comfortable, and go with everything. Highly recommend!
In love with these shoes. I'm a primary teacher so I'm on my feet all day and I had no blisters from the get go! I love that they look different from others. The design works really well with casual outfits, and also more formal ones. The off white colour means that small stains aren't noticeable, which is handy for being a grub and also being in and out of the classroom! Not to mention they clean very easily.
Love them, these are my second pair of Orba shoes
Love my new Ghost shoes. Love they are helping the environment. Love the fit. Love the style. Great effort. Nga mihi
My second pair and I'm so excited! So comfortable from the very start. Love 'em.
On to my second pair, I remember the first being a bit comfier but still love them and highly recommend! Much better than similar sneakers and being compostable is a huge bonus.
Love my shoes. Love that they would take up space in a landfill. Comfy from day one. I used the sizing from my vans and they were exactly the same size. Get a pair!!!
Orba shoes are extremely comfortable and very smart looking. I would recommend purchasing these world 1st biodegradable shoes.
Love the materials in this shoe and the design is amazing! Ticks all the boxes.
