It is clever technology that makes Wolky shoes the ultimate destination for comfortable footwear, and right now, the brand is applying that to everything from chic flats to go-to trainers Whether you are in the market for a stylish slipper or a pair of summer-ready sandals, Wolky is worth having on your radar…
I have been struggling to find stylish comfortable shoes with a great fit and engineered not to cause pain. It can be difficult to find shoes that make comfort a priority whilst not compromising on style. Ever since I discovered Wolky’s footwear, I have been a massive fan of their shoes that are designed for the ultimate comfort and ease of fit. And there is no need to forfeit style for comfort with Wolky. With almost 40 years of expertise, Wolky is a Dutch family-run company specialising in good-for-your-feet shoes that are not only extremely comfortable but also attractive looking.
Wolky’s namesake is the Dutch word for cloud, wolk. As soon as you set foot in a pair of Wolky’s, you will understand why the company has a dedicated following of fans who know what “walking on a cloud” truly means and feels.
Synonymous with quality, style and above all comfort, each pair of Wolky shoes for men and women is well designed that stylishly encourages natural alignment, orthopaedic comfort and good cushioning. All of this is accomplished without the look of traditional orthotic shoes.
Wolky shoes have both on-trend and classic picks in different models, colours, heel heights, materials and weather-resistant finishes to satisfy every preference. From sandals to slippers to heels to sneakers or boots, there is a style for every occasion. Some shoes come with extra widths and half sizes, so finding the perfect shoe size and fit is effortless.
Wolky shoes are special both inside and out. The features outlined below are unique to Wolky’s shoes and give you a glimpse into the Wolky difference:
ANATOMICALLY SHAPED FOOTBED: The unique footbeds are designed anatomically so that the the body’s weight is distributed evenly, making the shoes as comfortable as they can possibly be. The design of the footbed also reduces the shock and impact on the foot. This minimises the strain placed on the joints and bones, including the feet, knees, and lower back.
LEATHER-COVERED FOOTBEDS: The leather-covered footbeds are carefully engineered using the finest materials like high-grade memory foam and natural, contoured cork to create a cushion that moulds to the shape of your feet and absorbs the shock of all those steps you are taking.
REMOVABLE FOOTBEDS: In many cases, the footbeds are removable. Find your own sense of comfort in shoes with removable footbeds that allow you to insert your own bespoke insoles, helping with orthopaedic needs.
LEATHER-LINED UPPERS: This allows shoes to breathe and absorb perspiration. As a result, Wolky shoes are extremely durable and last for a long time. The uppers won’t get stretched out; they will provide you with comfort and value for ages.
SOFTEST MATERIAL: Made with high quality and breathable materials such as durable leather and soft suede, Wolky footwear mould itself precisely to the foot. The shoes are created for all-day wear so that your feet can be comfortable no matter where you are going.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOLES: Design and materials are what make Wolky soles exclusive. The material used to make the sole depends upon the style and purpose of the shoe. Types of soles include: EVA – ultra-lightweight, shock-absorbing, flexible, and energy-absorbing; Polyurethane (PU) – lightweight, shock-absorbing, energy-absorbing, wear-resistant, and insulating; Rubber – very flexible, wear-resistant, durable, and perfect for producing very detailed soles; Smartlite 660 – extremely wear-resistant, ultra-lightweight, flexible and springy, complies with the European ECO Label, and energy-absorbing; and Technical Rubber (TR) – wear-resistant, flexible, and lightweight.
STYLES FOR EVERY OCCASION: Whether you are looking for lightweight sandals or shoes to wear on vacation, dress shoes for work or boots for those cold winter months, Wolky has versatile shoes no matter the occasion or the season. For women, stylish loafers and comfortable flats are perfect for a casual workday while heels are great for going from your day at work to a night on the town. For men, find a pair of sneakers that can be worn anywhere and anytime or a pair of comfortable men’s lace-up shoes made to impress at the office. Wolky even has supportive shoes for medical professionals or comfortable shoes for teachers who are constantly on their feet all day.
TRUSTED AND APPROVED BY EXPERTS: The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is the leading resource for foot health information, representing the vast majority of the estimated 18,000 podiatrists in the United States. Wolky has been granted the APMA Seal of Acceptance, a testament that their shoes are beneficial to foot health. During the certification process, a group of APMA podiatrists reviews and analyses a shoe to determine its quality, safety and effectiveness.
Also, Wolky has launched the Odd Sized Shoe Programme, which is the solution for odd sized feet. Some have odd sized feet. Often the size difference is less than half a size. But for some, the size difference can be bigger than one size. People with odd sized feet are often forced to buy two pairs of shoes, which is wasteful. The Odd Sized Shoe Programme allows you to buy just one pair of shoes.
After having tried the clog-style slippers – Seamy Slide and Roll Slide – from Wolky’s Roll Moc range, I can attest that they are wonderfully comfortable. Apart from being optimised for comfort, they check off all the most important boxes: they provide enough cushioning and shock absorption to pamper and protect my feet in the long term. The cushioned footbed is removable, should you wish to replace it with an orthotic or orthopaedic insert.
The well-cushioned footbed means I can be on my feet all day without experiencing any fatigue or pain. The slippers are so sublimely comfortable that I frequently have to talk myself out of wearing them with everything. The slippers come in a variety of materials (such as leather, lack and nubuck) and colours. I would not ask for more.
Wolky has earned a stellar reputation for making some of the best shoes on the market. With an anatomically formed footbed and a well-thought-through design, attention for styling, carefully chosen materials and a sound production method, Wolky takes comfort to a new level. Hitting the perfect balance between fashion and practicality, you will definitely want to add Wolky to your closet.
