If you know me personally you will know that I am all about comfort these days and in the past this has led to making a choices over comfort and style especially in the footwear department.
I have low arches and can no longer walk in any kind of proper heels so had fallen out of love with footwear and just opted for comfort for the last 2 years.
Recently I was contacted by the lovely team at Wolkyshop to see if I would like to try out a pair of their stylish and comfortable Autumn and Winter boots.
Obviously the chance to find a new brand that might cater for my flat feet is always great so I jumped at the chance!
Firstly I have to say it took me the best part of a day to decide on which pair to go for as I honestly couldn’t make my mind up for just one pair and after having near on 10 pairs in my basket at one point it wasn’t an easy choice as they were super stylish.
As for comfort I obviously did some research before agreeing to try Wolky’s out as it really is no good having boots that aren’t comfortable and since Wolky means cloud in Dutch it’s certainly a good start to things! Add in the shoes and boots having an anatomically shaped footbed and the choice of removing memory foam in sole they give lots of flexibility for the wearer … but are they comfy?
I finally chose the Basky in brown oiled leather and after some advice from Wolky I chose a size 6 as their sizing can be a little on the smaller size and normally having a 5.5 in wider fit shoes it was probably best.
When the boots arrived I have to say the Wolky team were right on the sizing and they are a fairly small 6 so I would certainly size up if ordering online.
In real life I fell in love with these even more! they ooze quality and the soles are super funky on the outside with great grips and a really solid wedge base.
Inside the memory foam removable inserts are amazingly comfy, however due to the small sizing I did have to remove the inserts to be able to wear comfortably. But comfortable they are!
The wide elastic side panel keeps the boot flexible on the ankle and helps at making it easier to get them on and off.
Having finally been introduced to a shoe brand that is not only stylish but comfortable too I am certainly going to be keeping my eyes on Wolky for future purchases! … I know I am in need of some spring and summer shoes next year so can’t wait to see what they offer then too!
