These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Issues due to lockdown in the Uk and Portugal were dealt with impeccably by Rui and Ed.
My red suede trainers are completely gorgeous & oh so comfortable. Fabulous attention to detail from materials right down to the wooden box & info booklet!
So pleased I found you Waes!
First impressions: they're incredible. I mean, even the box they come in is brilliant. They're easily the softest, most comfortable trainers I've ever worn. I usually spend around £100 on a decent pair, but oh my is it worth stumping up a bit more for these. The leap in quality, craftsmanship and comfort is huge. They're orders of magnitude better. And once you factor in the impeccable sustainability creds, why on earth would you want to buy your trainers from anywhere else?
Bought as a Christmas present for my son in law. They proved an excellent choice. Worn almost non stop since!!
LOVE my new shoes that look and feel great and fulfill such high standards with no plastic (hurrah) and vegan. LOVED the beautiful packaging ( also no plastic) especially the box and have not really taken them off since and feel proud to wear them. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. I will definitely be back for more
Order came very quickly, beautifully packaged and great quality. What has impressed me most is the Finnish of the shoes and how incredibly comfortable they are. Really nice to have a product that is both ethical and good quality. Will definitely order in the future. Keep up the great work.
When I first put them on they did not fit my left foot while the right was perfect. This was because I am recovering from a broken heal in October 7, 2020. Since wearing them the swelling went down to zero. Preparing to get them stretched.
My experience now says this, these sneakers are perfect. I saved hundreds of dollars in custom insoles and special shoes. My hunch was the Organic cotton Canvass and Natural Lactae Hevea would work for me and I was right.
Thank you so much WAES.
I loved every bit of this purchase; from the great website and quick responses to ease of ordering and speedy delivery, to the actual joy of opening the box and finding the beautifully made trainers inside.
The 1970 trainers are as soft as slippers and look so good my eleven year old son suddenly thinks I’m quite cool !!
My feet love wearing them and they make me feel all warm inside too.
Please keep up the good work.
A thoroughly good complete experience.
These are the most comfortable trainers i have ever experienced!! Ps thanks for the speedy delivery.
I got one of the first pairs of these back at the start of 2020 and have worn them ever since. Now I've got a second pair and they're just as good. They might even be a bit better, as there's a little bit of extra room for the little toes.
It is wonderful to know at last that when you're walking around you're not polluting as you go, shedding microplastics everywhere.
And these shoes are really comfortable as well as simply stylish.
Thank you WAES!
They were a gift to my granddaughter and she loves them.
They are not for me but my son, and daughter-in-law. I will see how they find them, after Christmas. And will let you know. I find them very comfortable having tried on a pair sent to my sister.
The shoes are very comfortable and warm! Also had a pleasant experience with the customer service: I asked a question about returning the shoes after their lifetime, and received a friendly reply soon after.
My second purchase from WAES and this is an amazing shoe, so comfortable and stylish with no plastic. Wow.
