I have to say that I had expectations about these shoes and after two months of wearing them I can really say that’s the best shoes I’ve ever bought! I am so happy, everything is perfect: design, sustainability, quality, foot support, water-repellent, comfort… I can definitely feel the difference when I wear Waes and my old shoes, I never have back pain when walking for a long time with them, walking with them feels like heaven :) Thank you and keep going!
I am delighted with these trainers. My instinct is not to buy shoes on line as I find most shoes uncomfortable. The insoles ensure a cushioned walk. Added to this their ecological background is superb. Win, win.
They look amazing and feel great, too. Worth the money!
I bought my first pair of Waes trainers after reading a review of them and am delighted. Great colour, very comfortable and plastic free - fantastic!
I love these shoes, they are the most comfortable trainers I own and the warm yellow colour gives me so much joy when I look down. Summer in a shoe! The fact that they are plastic free and biodegradable is a big bonus. Thanks WAES, I will be getting myself a boot for the autumn too.
Pleasantly surprised by the comfort. Fast delivery, with no plastic waste!
I had already bought a leather pair and was so impressed I decided to try these too. I am not disappointed, same great service, really well packaged. Love the shoes. They are expensive compared to other products on the market but they look and feel great. I especially like the darker sole (my other pair are red soled).
Al round feel good sneakers..
Love everything about waes
I am so happy everything about my new shoes. The delivery, packing and notifications exceeded my expectations. The shoes themselves are like walking on air. They look great and feel wonderful. I am very pleased with them and planning my next pair. I have already recommended them to everybody I know!! I have been searching for an environmentally friendly product that actually works and looks good and fits - thank you they are perfect.
I absolutely love everything about these shoes! They're incredibly comfortable, fantastic quality and they were shipped out so quickly! I'll definitely be ordering more, great value for money!
Awesome customer service, awesome shoes!
As a textile engineer working in the sneaker industry for eco-conception, Waes is my top pick for leather kicks! Apart from the fact that the shoes look even better in real life, I was struck by the quality of materials (which I know quite some about) and the comfort they offer. I'll probably never buy anything else than natural latex sole from now on.
Congrats for all the work behind such beautifully crafted products!
Also love the customer experience (booklet is fire) AND customer service. I can only recommend this brand. Thanks for offering such a good option in this industry.
Bought as a gift and he loves them! In fact many of my friends are ordering now.
1971 - Red Suede Trainer
My first pair had a tear within a month or so but the team responded amazingly and straight away sent me a new pair. These shoes are a game changer for the planet and for having something casual but smart enough to wear at work. Also as a surfer from the West Country it’s awesome to see such innovation locally!
