Butter Shoes

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.

Best shoes I have ever worn

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.

1982 - Black Organic Canvas Lite Sole

❤️ my 1982 white WAES

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!

1982 great product shame about the comfort.

Finally glad to find a company that's on the right side of history in making a great product that's stylish and ethically sound for the environment and it's workforce. Sadly after a couple of weeks of wearing, my left foot became uncomfortable and feels like my toes were pressing into the side.(almost like one shoe is smaller than the other, which it isn't) It's unfortunate as I have no issues with my right shoe! I hope that in a few more wears it might iron itself out as it would be a shame for me to stop having to wear them so soon after purchase.

Can’t stop buying Waes!

Love these shoes so much and everything about them :)


Incredible product!


Great shoes, extremely comfortable


Better than I imagined and so comfy

Great shoe, perfect service

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.

Feel Good Factor

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 :)

My new favorite shoes!

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!


My trainers are very squidgy and soft - that was the best thing about them besides the fact that they are ethically produced by a group of excellent shoe enthusiasts.

Beautifully Soft Suede

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.

Fantastic shoes

They look amazing and feel great, too. Worth the money!

Lovely shoes!

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! 

Sunshine shoes!

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.

Very comfy shoes

Pleasantly surprised by the comfort. Fast delivery, with no plastic waste!

Better than expected

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).

Comfy as clouds

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.

Best shoes I've ever purchased

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!
