Most of our shoes fit normally, so you can choose your usual size. However, the Etoiles de Cap-Vert and Bogo models are large, so we advise you to take a size smaller than your usual size. All our advice for sizes are indicated on our product sheets.

By "vegetable leather" we mean using alternatives to animal leather such as cork and lubbugo which come from tree bark. It is not animal leather and no animal products are used in our production.

Our partners in Mali are certified by Helvetas. In Senegal and Burkina Faso, our partners are not yet certified.

The products on our website correspond to our availability. Only available sizes are offered. However, it may happen that a model is out of stock in your size or that a pair displayed as available is no longer in stock due to a computer error.

Umòja pays great attention to security issues regarding payment on the Internet. Your bank details are transmitted to our server in encrypted form using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol and transferred in a totally secure environment to our bank, the CMB. They are not stored under any circumstances. The payment is entirely secure thanks to the online payment system of our banking partner: Stripe. Your bank details only circulate on the Internet in encrypted form, i.e. they are coded in such a way as to make them completely unreadable. Moreover, they are only processed by Stripe and are never in the possession of umoja. In fact, when you type in your card number to make your purchases on umoja-shoes, you are actually transmitting it to Stripe. From a technical point of view, the security system is based on a 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. This payment solution is the most widely used in France for Internet payments.
