Reviews

So comfortable!

Most comfortable shoes. It's like I'm wearing slippers, but so much more stylish.
They are feather light and easy to get on and off.
I love the design, just a little something different.
Looking forward to trying them out in all kinds of conditions and see how they do.

Super comfy

Lovely quirky design, so easy to wear. Plus supporting craftspeople. Ticks all the boxes for me.

Lovely summer shoes

Lovely shoes for summer. Found difficult to walk with them at the beginning as they were my first barefoot shoes but after a few days, I loved them, light and comfortable! It is like being without shoes all the time :)
