The casual shoe that fits your active lifestyle.
It'a all about the journey. The #jibsjourney
Founded in the summer of 2015 in New York City, Jibs Life is the result of our passion for style and travel and a reflection of the values we hold high; fun, play, life energy, enthusiasm and the excitement of discovery.
Our journey of discovery led us to create The Jib; a perforated leather slip-on shoe that reigns from tropical Brazil. The shoe strikes a balance between simplicity and classic style that meets head on with contemporary flair and comfort. This means we stride in style, comfort and color, with the wind between our toes. From nautical to neutral with shiny in between we know you’ll find your perfect, endless summering shoe, here in our collection.
Born in Brazil
With great love and laughter your Jibs are hand crafted in the beautiful backdrop of Três Coroas on the southern tip of Brazil. We are ever grateful to work with an intimate family run factory where not only are your shoes built with care but all earnings the factory receives are incredibly impactful in strengthening their local economy.
Jibs Life offers three classic slip-on styles of the perfect perforated leather shoe: Classic Jib, High Top Jib, Slim Jib. With a light-weight recycled PVC out-sole and memory foam odorless in-soles, the un-lined authentic perforated leather upper softly molds to fit each foot's natural shape.
The loveliness of Leather
When it comes to sizing, if you're between two sizes, order the smaller one for a perfect fit. A snug fit is recommended as the un-lined authentic Brazilian leather will naturally take on the unique shape of your foot. Due to this natural stretch, anticipate up to half size of expansion after as short as an hour to a day of strolling the streets. Some say like skinny jeans if they are super snug (not painful) at first then they relax to the perfect glove like fit; if they are too loose they then stretch a bit too much and slip off your feet.
Summering and Wintering
Fact of the day: authentic leather remains neutral regardless of the temperature, and does not retain sweat or odor, allowing Jibs perforated leather shoes to be worn barefoot and get better with age.
