I usually wear a size 43, and I can just about to get away with Calla's size 9 UK, which they describe as a 42. I've been looking for shoes that would conceal my awful bones for ages, and I am very delighted that I've finally found them. The leather on these is unbelievably soft, and the design is on-trend (this is the first time I am able to say this about a shoe meant for bunions!) and I am just over the moon that my search for shoes that would fit my terrible bunions is over.

As this is the first time I've tried Calla shoes I wanted to let you all know how pleased I am and thank you again for getting them out to me so quickly. I have the Selena in black suede and Charlotte in dark grey. They are so comfortable and look fabulous.
I've actually had bunions due to my big toes leaning inwards since I was born (mum dealt constantly with children's shoe fitters telling her she'd damaged my feet by wearing tight shoes!) And now I'm in my 40's my bunions are getting bigger and finding comfortable shoes very difficult. Even shoes that were OK aren't now. 
Also, thanks for going up to size 42, many shops are now only going up to size 41.

I absolutely love my new black suade size 5 pumps. So many unwearable shoes in my wardrobe due to a bunion and a refuse to keep in adding to them I was starting to feel abit down. It was so hard to find a stylish and comfortable pair of shoes until I fell upon Calla! 
Straight away my new pumps fitted perfectly. No rubbing, blisters or soreness. 
I shall not ever need to shop anywhere else for new shoes.

These pumps have as a special feature an additional wide cut that suits me very much. It is important that my bunions are covered and the leather is soft - which it definitely is! The heel looks great and is super comfortable, I also wear the shoes regularly in the office.

A former classical ballet dancer, my feet have taken a real punishing after years of jumping around on pointe! I had despaired on being able to find comfortable shoes that would accommodate, not only my bunions but my hammer toe, too! I have recently bought my first pair of Calla shoes and can't believe how, not only are they extremely comfortable, but more amazingly, how utterly transforming they are! I would definitely recommend these fabulous shoes to any bunion sufferers! SO great to be able to be fashionable and pain free at the same time! Well done for working such magic, Calla Shoes!

Calla’s Fuschia Lana heels were absolutely perfect for my New Orleans wedding!
I don’t have bunions, but I do have relatively wide feet, a dodgy ankle and a wardrobe full of pretty but horribly uncomfortable heels...
I’ve been reading good reviews about Calla for a while, so, after falling in love with this style I decided to take a chance with them, thinking if they are work for ladies with bunions, maybe I’ll be able to wear them for more than an hour without crippling foot pain.
As soon as they arrived I realised I’d made the right decision - the colour was spot on, the suede super soft, perfect heel height and they had the support that I needed. 
And as for the wedding, not only did I wear them all afternoon, but I also walked over a mile around the French Quarter and successfully danced the night away in them. The quality was evident the day after as well, normally I ruin shoes quite quickly but the suede still looked as new and the heel tip barely showed any wear... Best chance I ever took, other than on the husband of course!

I brought six pairs of shoes on holiday and I’ve lived in the Calla shoes. As soon as I get home will be buying more.... love love love them!!  Hope you do the same style next year in other colours.

I have several pairs now and think the service you are providing is very important. I wish you had been around 3 years ago when my son got married. I really struggled to find something.

Please keep up the good work.

The heel is the perfect height, the almond-shaped toe is comfy and roomy, and the shaft hits the ankle at the most flattering part, making them the perfect height to wear with pants or skirts. Plus, as someone who suffers from bunions, I can wear these for hours without them pinching my feet. If you have bunions—or even if you just want a comfortable yet chic pair of boots—I can't recommend these enough!

I’ve been suffering with foot problems for quite a while now, the most recent being a suspected hairline fracture. My bunions have been getting gradually worse and now limit my choice of footwear. These shoes from Calla are designed specifically for people who have bunions, and they really are incredibly comfortable. The double strap ensures they are secure on my feet, while the wide fitting means there is no pinching or rubbing.

I had bunions all my life, lately getting worse.

 

Nowadays it's hard for me to get shoes that don't cause me pain and almost impossible to find some I can bear that look elegant. I looked for something like Calla online for years and I finally discovered exactly what I needed! After some trouble with the delivery that Calla managed very well, always responsive (she really cares about her costumers). I finally got my shoes (I got Jasmin cream). They looked beautiful in my feet, I felt sexy and confident and no pain!!

 

I usually keep my heels about an hour at weddings, after little time already with a lot of pain and walking like a weirdo. This time I managed to keep my shoes on for 17h!! Dancing, walking, jumping, everything you can imagine. I highly highly recommend it! I'll be ordering another pair soon! Thank you!!

I have inherited bunions on both feet, my feet are really wide and I find it difficult to buy comfortable shoes . My feet are 23.5 cms on widest part across my bunions.

I bought a pair of Charlotte flats last year...they are so comfortable thanks to extra space in the toe box...but unlike other wide shoes they are elegant...so useful when dressing up, can wear them all day.

Thank you Calla.

LOVE the flats. I took them out of the box and walked around the house, just to try, and I forgot I had them on. I then took my daughter shopping for jeans in new shoes. I don't even do that with new sneakers! And how much better they look on than my beautiful AGL flats. In 40 years I have never owned a comfortable flat. Now I'm going to order the one in pink and I'll have 2!

I am a size 38 and very wide feet. These Calla shoes are so comfortable that I can walk around the whole evening with them, at a reception for example, without even thinking to sit down to rest my sore feet. This is such a great feeling! They are very feminine too and a gentleman stopped me on the street recently to ask where my shoes would be from!

Emily praises our flats for covering her bunionectomy scars

Emily praises our flats for covering her bunionectomy scars

I love Calla shoes! The Charlotte flats are the only flats I’ve ever been able to wear. 
I had my first bunionectomy when I was 13 years old, and a second surgery when I was 21. You will see I have a lovely long scar, but these shoes glide over the scar.

Also, in my pictures you’ll see my other foot is currently injured, I have a contusion on my left foot as well. The Charlotte flats are the only shoes I can where right now, because the injury is on the top of my foot so it needs to be open there.
