Claudia has found comfort with Calla shoes

I have been in so much pain for years until I met Calla Shoes. I never thought shoes could be comfortable and beautiful! I wear a US 11 and have medium width. NEVER have I felt so great walking and looking! Thank you!

I bought these shoes at the end of last year and I was very skeptical even when I took them out of the box.  I have not been able to wears flats for I don't know how long - I just wear boots in Winter and then straight into sandals in the Summer.

So I was very shocked and pleasantly surprised when I put these shoes on and then even after wearing them for a day - no sore bunions!!  What a pleasure plus they even disguise the bunions.

Thank you for creating lovely looking shoes for people like us.

After suffering with an unsightly bunion for as long as I could remember and always dreading any kind of event that would require me to wear heels, I was beyond happy to discover Calla. 
The fit is perfect and cushions my feet better than any shoes i’ve ever tried previously, even wide fitting ones.
My confidence has increased and I feel happy knowing that I can still wear heels and not worry about being in pain or taking my shoes off half way through the night. 

The style has been a great addition to my summer outfits and has enabled me to feel stylish and comfortable all at once!

At last, the weather is good enough to wear my new Calla Charlottes. Love them! I might even have the confidence to go for heels next time. Thank you! Judy x

Just wanted to say how happy I am with your shoes! Three pair and counting. I’ve struggled to find shoes that are comfortable and stylish due to rheumatoid arthritis and accompanying bunions. So thrilled! Thank you!

    I have just received my new sandals, my fifth purchase of Calla shoes. Perhaps the best way of putting their comfort is to say that after attending an event last June I realised that I hadn't thought about my feet at all. I was comfortable. I have my beige Sophia high heels for my son's wedding soon. I love them.

    I am a business trainer and frequently am standing on my feet for 10 hours a day all week.  At the end of every day my feet would be so painful I would be walking on the sides of them. Then I found Calla Shoes and they are amazing. The toes are roomy without feeling huge, and without the heels feeling baggy.  They are so soft they feel like a pair of slippers even with the heels. I love my Calla shoes and have replaced every pair of shoes that I had.  I cannot recommend highly enough. Only suggestion for improvement from me would be boots too please, ankle and long boots!!  Thank you Calla Shoes

    I have already a few pair of callashoes and just want to say thank you. My bunions are not massively big but they make my feet very uncomfortable and sore on daily basic. My favourite are Sophia heels (black & grey). From now my wardrobe is complete.

    I bought these red shoes to brighten up my winter wardrobe.  They are really comfortable,  and with the kitten heel, still stylish at the same time.  I love wearing them.  

    Everyone should have a pair of animal print shoes this season and these snake ones fit the bill perfectly.  The colour grey goes with most outfits and the kitten heel gives them style, they are great with trousers or dresses, a very  versatile pair or shoes.

    I absolutely love Calla shoes. It's been so liberating being able to purchase pretty shoes, and knowing I don't have to despondently trudge around the high street feeling more and more depressed.  I also have the silver sandals. Will definitely be purchasing more.

    I have a pair of your Sophia in nude beige. They fit perfectly and look chic and on-trend with a variety of outfits. My bunions have never felt so comfortable either! I’m hoping to purchase a pair in red too, as I’m following the fashion for red stuff at the moment.

    Since my bunions became more pronounced I was hesitant and embarrassed to wear open toe shoes though they were my favourite kind. And then I discovered the gorgeous ones from Calla. And my love affair with open toe sandals has restarted. Thank you for making shoes that are helpful with the bunions and are gorgeous and glamorous.

    Thank you for your beautiful comfortable shoes. I love them.
    I am sending some pictures for your photo reviews.
    I haven't worn the beige sandals yet....can't wait for summer.
    The red ones, sooo comfortable, make me feel so sophisticated and stylish.
    I have had the black ones the longest, I love them so much I wear them at every possible opportunity. 
    Keep making more lovely shoes for bunion sufferers, they make me feel like a woman again.

    I suffer from quite large bunions and after many years of wearing wide, flat shoes I was very excited to try Calla shoes. Not only were they trendy and very fashionable but extremely comfortable.
    They also disguised the fact that I had bunions!
    I am looking forward to a family wedding soon where my shoes will not dictate the outfit that I choose.

    I have worn heels all my life and I'm not about to stop wearing them now.  
    I always wear some kind of heel, even if it's a wedge or a low one but I prefer the high ones!

    I am always on the hunt for a pretty pair of heels that can hide and fit my bunions but finding them is getting more and more difficult because of the size of my bunions.
    I tried on the low heel sandals and the high heel shoes (which were my personal favourite) and they both fit beautifully.  
    They look elegant and stylish and will be perfect for my cruise around the Med next year!

    When my ex-work colleague, Jenni Bailey, first emailed me about her shoe business I was surprised but very interested – I was the Podiatrist with the expertise, I could definitely help her especially because I suffer with enlarged joints too. What I didn’t bargain for was her experience with her own painful feet, leading to her considerable practical research into materials, pattern cutting, shape, comfort; she had already done all the hard work.
    Bunions (Hallux Valgus) cause not only pain and deformity, they make shoe buying a complete nightmare especially for ladies who want something for a special occasion other than a standard wide, flat shoe.
    Jenni has changed this concept, her shoes have not only extra width and extra depth but there are soft areas over the bony prominence of the big toe joint – which rubs in normal shoes. I tried her flat ballet pumps, because they are padded on the ball of the foot they give the second metatarsal phalangeal joint some extra cushioning, the leather over the enlarged 1st joint area is softened by perforations, the upper is extended to cover the joint so it limits any rubbing. The sides of the shoe and the heel counter are stiffened and supportive.
    This is a shoe you could wear all day, the style is very well thought through, I would say, it’s a shoe which not only accommodates bunions but looks great, feels good and fits well.

    Well done, Calla is definitely worth recommending.

    I have the Charlotte pumps which I wore all summer so a little scuffed now, so thought best not to photograph those!! But I have attached photos of my black Sophias.
    I have not worn heels for such a long time due to the throbbing pain but I've worn these 3 times now and adore them. Thank you.

    Here are some photos of my feet in the Sophia nude heel. My shoe size is US 9, the width of my feet is 241mm (E). I don’t have any other issues with my feet.

    My bunions are small but they do increase the width of my feet, so it’s impossible for me to find high heels that are wide enough/have enough space for my toes without cutting across my bunions.

    I love this Sophia heel because the toe box is the perfect width to fit my toes comfortably without them being cramped.

    The shoe cuts at a perfect spot to not hurt my bunions, and they are truly the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever worn!

    The leather is also really soft. Based on my experience with these shoes I think someone with even wider feet could fit in them comfortably; I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for a classic heel.
