Rarely do reviews but very happy to with my red trainers which are unbelievably comfortable and look great too, plus no plastic! Perfect
I feel like I'm walking on a pillow, it's truly luxurious.
I have been searching for something like this for so long, and you've made this dream a reality for me, I cannot be grateful enough. In the future, I'd love to see products suitable for a formal workplace environment, or slippers/sandles made by you.
You wouldn't know that these shoes are plastic-free which is part of what makes them awesome. Look great and very comfortable also. My only complaint is that it came with an unnecessary wooden shoebox and bag which will probably end up in landfill, which clearly goes against the whole sustainable ethos. Please review your packaging!
super comfy and beautiful
Thank you everyone... I love my high tops.. and I love your company... delivery too was wonderful... I had them within days of my order.. stay safe everyone...
I am very happy with the quality, fit and look of my new trainers and ethically made too.
Vibrant red trainer, extremely comfortable and looks great. The wooden box and packaging is a quality touch
Great fitting shoe, looks brilliant. Extremely comfortable to wear and made with high quality materials and workmanship. Arrives in a very collectible wooden box with branding.
From the moment I unpacked the beautiful, sustainable shoe box that contained my red shoes - it was true love. Not just lust. These have to be the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned and the shade of red, is a constant source of joy. Thank you all at Waes for your vision and the way this has been brought to life.
Lots of compliments and so cosy. Only problem is my golden retriever keeps picking one of them up and walking round with it! I think he loves the feel of them to.
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!!
