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

Walking on air with Wolky Sandals – Review

Whenever it’s time to get new shoes, my heart sinks.  We don’t gain weight on our feet, so in theory shoes should always fit. But I always struggle to find a well fitting pair of shoes because a 5 is too small but size 6s are like boats.  Wolkyshop asked me to review a pair of wedge sandals and I prayed they would fit!

The Wolky brand is new to the UK, and recently opened a shop in Brighton.  I don’t like to spend a lot of money on shoes – boots yes, shoes no. Wolky shoes are not cheap but having worn them, I may be a convert to investing a bit more money in seasonal shoes.

Wolky is a Dutch brand with 11 shops in the Netherlands. Wolky’s name comes from the Dutch word for ‘cloud’ and their shoes focus on comfort. Their shoes are anatomically shaped with leather covered footbeds that mould to your feet. The brand focuses on good quality and soft materials so I was looking forward to trying them out.I do like shoes to be comfortable and well made.

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 colours gave me confidence the sandals would look as I expected.

Usually I find that wedge sandals start off comfortable and then get painful. I’ve yet to find a pair 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. Wearing the Wolky sandals was a big test for me.

The sandals were well packaged, with plenty of information about Wolky.  Opening the box, they were just the right colour – a mid tan. I did worry how small they looked.  I’m usually a size 5 to 5.5, but I’ve got dance sandals that are a 4.5, and other 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.

I often struggle to get straps that are long enough, but with Wolky shoes there’s 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 stretched or tight.

I could be really picky and say they look a bit clumpy and frumpy – rounded toe, style of strap. But the overall look is nice and I think I’m just being overly fussy. The Wolky sandals 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.

Disclosure: I was sent a pair of Wolky sandals for the purpose of review. All words and opinions are my own.
