Wolky Roll Clog Review

Must Have Monday


Wolky Roll Clog Blog

If I want to be reminded of how good balance feels- when everything else is chaotic- I simply slide my soles into one of my pairs of Wolky's. They are truly the perfect balance of firm support and cushion. I can feel the smile ease onto my face just thinking about them...my feet hugging the arches...my heels kissing the cushioning...my body finding postural bliss. Aaahhh...

Undoubtedly, my favorite pair of Wolky's are surely the most eccentric wearable style of shoes in my collection. They have an odd enough look to garner stares and unrestrained comments in grocery store lines. I smile with the satisfaction that my quirky shoes continue to steal attention from the check stand tabloids. Some folks expect me to be offended, but I just grin and wiggle my toes in the giddy-ness of my own little love affair with these shoes.

The Roll Clog looks like a pair of elfin closed-back, box-like clogs with the toes squared off (and I mean really squared off) with the leather rolled into a thick base of polyurethane. The soles are chunky looking but are so light weight and they lift my feet a good solid two inches off the hard ground, carrying me in a namesake cloud-like walk (Wolky means cloud-like). Added to their element of eccentric “cool” is the way they fasten to ones feet. A full coverage heel strap wraps around the heel and closes with velcro and a snap. And if I am not smitten enough, I own them in my favorite shoe color...one the novice might call reddish while the shoe professional will toss about shoe color lingo like cordovan or oxblood, but I prefer to describe them as a delicious shade of cabernet. No matter what anyone calls them...they always make my day. Thank you Wolky!

If your local shoe store doesn't carry Wolky, or you can't seem to find the style or size you're looking for, you can often find Wolky's at Zappos, PlanetShoes, SierraTradingPost, ShopWiki and other online retailers.

Fitting Notes:

European sizing. A size 39 fits like a womens 7 ¾ perfectly. Good for folks with average depth insteps with medium to wide feet. When they fit properly they should have a bit of slip in the heel since they are clogs that simply have some heel protection. Be careful not to make the back strap too snug as this will push your toes too close to the end of the shoe and push the arch too far forward. They should have an overall loose fit and feel. The footbed is not removable, and therefore not orthotic friendly.
