Whenever it’s time to get a new pair of shoes my heart always falls.  Ok, so you don’t put on weight on your feet so in theory shoes should always fit, but I always struggle to find a pair because a size 5 is too small and size 6s are like boats.  But when I was asked to review a pair of shoes from Wolkyshop I was looking forward to them arriving…and just praying they would fit.

Wolky are a brand new to the UK, recently opening their first shop in Brighton.  For those of us who don’t like to spend a lot of money on shoes (boots yes, shoes no from my point of view), Wolky shoes do seem expensive.  However having had a pair, I may be a convert to spending a bit more money on seasonal shoes.

Wolky is a Dutch brand with 11 shops in the Netherlands.  With Wolky’s name coming from the Dutch word for ‘cloud’ and their shoes focusing on comfort with anatomically shaped and leather covered footbeds that mould to your feet, I was looking forward to trying out a pair.  They also focus on good quality and soft materials – I do like shoes to be comfortable and well made.

walking on aid with a review of Wolky Wedge sandals - Bubbablue and me

I decided on a pair of chunky wedge sandals.  I’m really fussy about shoes. The straps need to  be right, they can’t look too frumpy, they need to look right when looking down at my feet, the heels need to be right etc.  But the sandals I chose seemed to fit when I spotted them on the website.  I’m not keen on buying shoes from websites but with Wolky the multiple different angled pictures with all the different colourways gave me confidence that the sandals would look like I expected.

Usually I find that wedge sandals start off either comfortable and then get painful.  I’ve not yet found a pair that I can wear comfortably all day or evening.  Added to that, I’ve not worn heels apart from a pair of boots for evening meals out, for years.  It was going to be a big test for me.

Wolky sandals wedges

When the sandals arrived, they were well packaged, with plenty of information about Wolky.  Opening the box, they were just the right colour – a mid tan.  But I did worry how small they looked.  I’m a size 5 to 5.5 when I measure my feet, but I’ve got dance sandals which are a 4.5, normal shoes that range from a 5 to 6.  So I opted for a size 6 just to make sure they fitted.  These did look too small but when I tried them on they were exactly the right length.

Wolky wedge sandals

I also usually struggle to get straps that are long enough, but with Wolkyshop there’s just enough length in the strap that I don’t need to go to the final hole.  Comfort wise the back strap round the back of the heel is adjustable with velcro.  Round of applause for the person who thought of that because it really helps them fit snuggly, and gives you the ability to readjust throughout the day if needed.

The sole is padded too, so no excuses for not standing all day in them.  The wedge isn’t so steep that your legs feel over stretched or tight.

wearing wolky wedges with jeans

While I could be really picky and say, they still look a bit clumpy and frumpy – rounded toe, style of straps – the overall look is nice and I think I’m just being overly fussy.  They certainly got a good reception when I shared them on Instagram.  They’re a versatile colour, perfect for summer, and there’s a couple of other variations available as well.  I can see me wearing these during the day and evening with jeans and linen trousers, and maybe even shorts or a skirt if I get my legs out for the summer.

These sandals are available on the Wolkyshop website, priced around £85.  I think the value based on number of wears is going to be a lot better than my old pair of wedges which I can only wear occasionally for a couple of hours at a time, and if I’m not walking anywhere in them.  My only tip would be go for a half size larger as this pair did come up small for a size 6.

But, great news, I’m also running a giveaway for one lucky reader to win a pair of Wolky shoes of their choice.  Just answer the question in the comments (no need to complete the url box if you don’t have a blog), then enter via the rafflecopter widget.
