I tried on 9 pairs of sandals. This was the only one of the bunch that fit well enough to keep. I have flat feet, bunions, Morton’s neuroma, calluses and other foot issues, as well as a bad knee and other structural problems. I realize I’m asking a lot from my footwear. I need adjustable straps, good support and cushioning. These provide those things better than others I’ve tried. One of the consistent problems with other styles was that in order to secure the ankle strap tight enough to keep the sandal from flapping or my foot from slipping forward, the top strap Velcro only connected with about half of the other side, which wasn’t enough to be really secure. These make nearly full contact, and come up high enough toward my ankle to feel secure yet comfortable. I wore these for the first time yesterday, all day, including a trip to farmer’s market, and they were fine. They’re also very attractive and versatile, looking equally good with jeans or skirts. I could probably even get away with wearing them with plain toed stockings, since they almost look more like a shoe than a sandal. They aren’t as cushy underfoot nor as soft inside as I’d prefer, but though I was afraid the edges would be scratchy or the inside would rub, they were no problem. They’re also lighter weight than some others. I’m hoping they’ll hold up well. The last sandals I really liked with Velcro straps became unwearable because the Velcro lost its grip so they didn’t stay on securely.

These are excellent slides! I have a bunion and was concerned they wouldn't accommodate it, but this was not a problem, they are plenty wide & the leather is very pliable. I had to get used to the style, as they are somewhat masculine looking. I am sure there is a prettier shoe out there, but the comfort makes up for this. They do run short, I had to size up. I typically wear a 39 or 40 and I sized up to a 41 in these. I wear a size 9 in US sizing. They are very comfortable at my stand up desk and can be worn with many summer outfits, and I like the extra height.

I really liked the look of the style, and they should have been comfortable... except they are really just far too wide. Wide might not be the word for it... there's just a surplus of fabric in the upper and no way to secure it to my foot. Even with my inserts, my foot just floated around. So very sad, because this was a great look and such nice quality. Wish they had at least been adjustable.

The strap is not long enough in the front. Too much velcro showing. In general, a poor look for my feet.

I've have worn this style previously for six years, and it was time for a new pair. Unfortunately, I had to return them because Wolky increased the height of the shoe behind the ankle, and it hits the back of my ankle. Why change a good shoe?! Overall, they are excellent!

I usually order Jewel from Wolky but thought I would try this style, however, it is not the great fit I get with Jewel, it runs quite a bit narrower.

I love my new Wolky Ripple sandals in Orange. I think they are very stylish and yet full adjustable. I have a long, narrow and shallow foot with high arches and these accommodate it well, except in the heel which is definitely cut for a regular to wide heel. As these are so fully adjustable, I can make these work. They are not nearly as comfortable as my old Wolky Nimes - which was my go to sandal, but I am happy enough. Finally, a note on the color. I think the Zappos site makes the orange look slightly more brilliant in color than they are. This sandal is a winner!

Although these are medium & I usually wear a wide, Wolky's medium have fit me in the past. These were too narrow in the toe box. Cute, but just not the right fit for my wide feet & short toes.
Kathy from Northwest Washington on May 21, 2020
The brand was recommended by my sister that has a very hard time finding shoes that fit. I love the pair I ordered so far. I haven’t done distance walking yet but I’m sure they will be great.
Betty from Clermont on May 20, 2020
Good fit. The straps are placed well for my feet. I would buy again.

I was looking for an alternative to a Birkenstock Arizona and thought this might fit the bill nicely. It is really cute and provides nice support especially for those of us with foot issues. Unfortunately, my feet don't do well in shoes whose straps secure with velcro. My foot tends to be on the narrower side of medium and I'm unable to tighten the straps enough to make me feel secure in these sandals. It's important that my feet don't flop around in sandals. I guess I really have to stick with sandals whose straps secure with a buckle. Back to Birkenstock I go! Otherwise, recommend for those of you with true medium width feet.

The insole is removable so I can fit my arch supports. It’s a little uncomfortable the first day but now they are very comfortable!
Zappos Reviewer on May 09, 2020
Sadly these did not work for me. Loved the flexible sole, great arch support, and Velcro closures. What did not work was the over abundance of straps. The center need to be omitted, and the front moved back about an inch... so it wouldn’t bite my toes. I do not keep toe biting sandals... I was grateful they were still an inside trial shoe, and have returned them. Sad.

not made for low volume feet. Leather is very stiff!
Zappos Reviewer on May 05, 2020
Highly recommend these shoes for comfort and style! Ordered a size 37 as my usual size is 7M. Fit perfect!

I have 3 pair of the Wolky Ka...which sadly seem to be gone. Most comfortable sandal I own. Absolutely no break in period, 0 blisters! I needed a slip on style for my tile floors, and dog walking. These look very geriatric.... 2 straps would look allot better. I am hoping they are the perfect alternative to a Mephisto or Berkinstock. I do not have a metatarsal arch... at all. These have a less aggressive front arch than the competition, but totally support my Uber high center arch. Great heel cup and very lightweight. I hope they get less slippery when they have been out-and-about. Love the Velcro adjustable straps. As far as sizing... just go by the EU number. For some reason this brand coverts incorrectly to US sizes. Their house tour is still on.... but I have allot of faith in this brand. Fingers crossed.

I’m a fan of Wolky but recently their styles haven’t appealed. This shoe, though, is a winner. Wear with cute ankle socks or not, they look good and fit really well. We are still under a Stay at Home order in Chicago but I wore the shoes around the house and yard and they felt fine immediately.
Cookie from Evanston, IL on April 29, 2020
I have had good luck with Wolky. They are consistent in high quality, unique design and generally run true to size. These are both super comfortable and excellent for walking. I have had a variety of foot problems and at one point wore custom orthotics. Now I seem to do fine with the support offered by this brand. I'm still just wearing them around the house as it's early spring and raining, but have already tossed the shipping box - they are keepers!
Elizabeth from Pacific Northwest on April 22, 2020
The Wolky Lisse is similar to the Jewel in fit. The cross strap gives good adjustability. I have a somewhat low volume foot and the fit is too roomy for me. The newer style is nice, just not as cute as I had hoped. This sandal is excellent quality and is comfortable.
Zappos Reviewer from Seattle on April 14, 2020
Love this sandal the minute I put it on my foot! Look forward to walking in them soon!
Cristin from Lomita, CA on April 09, 2020
Use with prescription orthotics. Thankful for shoes with removable foot beds.
Zappos Reviewer on April 01, 2020
I love these shoes. They are so comfortable I was able to wear them the first day, right out of the box.
Zappos Reviewer on March 16, 2020
I have a wide foot and these are quite wide. They differ from one foot to the other--the left one is fine, the right one is very loose. The heel strap does not adjust so the only way to compensate for this is by tightening the toe and ankle straps which are velcro--there are limits to this. I have a low arch and these have virtually no arch. They are comfortable and stylish, but I will probably have to go to a shoemaker to try and tighten up the right shoe.
Linda from Portland on March 15, 2020
These are incredibly comfortable and light.
Zappos Reviewer on March 14, 2020
These shoes are very wide for my narrow feet. Fortunately I was able to adjust the Velcro straps to fit better. However, the back strap is not adjustable. The sole is comfortable, but it is too cold to wear them outside right now to find out how well they really fit.
