Just retrieved my shoes from having them weather proofed. Where form, philosophy, and function come together. Lovely fit,foot bed provides nice cushion yet with some of the characteristics of minimalist "barefoot" trainers. Overall the quality is ace in a brand one will be pleased to support.
Had to go a size below my normal (I’m an odd half size, so it’s can be difficult when ordering online), but it was painless to get them exchanged. Very comfortable every day shoe, very happy with purchase.
Of course the ethics of the waes shoe brought me to want to buy, but I wasn’t expecting them to be so comfortable to wear. These shoes are beautifully made, thoughtfully presented and a pleasure to wear.

I love my new WAES. Great canvas shoe, that’s comfy, great looking and plastic free. Quick process to buy and get delivered. I’d recommend 10/10!
Love these shoes so much and everything about them :)
Great shoes, extremely comfortable
Better than I imagined and so comfy
Really pleased with such a stylish option that is ecologically sound.
My shoes were delivered with a minor fault and the service team were incredibly helpful and quick to respond throughout.
Comfy, stylish, well made. Eco credentials make me feel good. Hope they last. Wooden box was a bit over the top. Gonna try and convert it into a bird box.
Completely love!! Above and beyond, the shoes are the most comfortable I’ve ever had including against Nike. Also, going to grow some strawberries in the wooden box they arrived in :)
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!
