Calla Shoes - Specially Designed For Problem Feet

Hi Everyone
I'm sharing shoes with you today. A girl can never have enough shoes right?
These shoes are pretty special though. They are designed for women with Bunions.


These shoes caught my eye on Instagram, and I got chatting with the Calla shoe company, explaining that they were specially made for women with this problem in mind. So I thought I would share what I had discovered.

 A common problem apparently, luckily for me I don't have Bunions. Quite surprising really considering the conditions I have had my feet in regards to high heeled shoes for so many years!



 Super soft cushioning inside and extra wide fit You can read about them  here 

I just loved the classic style of the shoe! And they are so comfortable! But if you have problem feet, then I hope these can be of help to you. The site has many different styles and some lovely court shoes are available.



I've chosen to style the shoes with this M&S stripe dress that I bought last year. I like the change in the stripes direction and I thought I liked the slanting hemline on it too. but after looking at these photos I have decided to have it altered to a normal hemline.I don't like it! Does that happen to you? You love something one minute and dislike it the next? I can be so contrary! I will never tire of a classic stripe dress though!

 I never realised that Bunions were such a common problem for women. Apparently, 38% of women over 30 suffer from them.These women must find it hard to wear shoes that are comfortable yet stylish. That's where Calla shoes stepped in. A fantastic idea.




They don't feel like high heels to me. Easy and comfortable to wear. They are quite wide fitting too. That's the problem I have.Wide feet! nearly as wide as they are long!



Considering that they are made with more technology I'm impressed with the prices that the shoes and sandals are. These one's that I'm wearing are £130.00 and are available in Silver and Black too. 



So. I hope this may have been helpful to any of you ladies out there? Do you have any problems with your feet? I think so far I have been very lucky.

  1. I saw these shoes recently in a magazine- fantastic solution for women with bunions because most shoes for this are flat and velcro'd! I have a different type of bunion called a tailor's bunion on my right foot. All my shoes are now too small for that foot! I'm tearing my hair out.

  4. Although I do not have bunions either, I'm always on the lookout for comfortable shoes as I have what I call "difficult feet". This is especially apparent in summer, when I'm not wearing tights. So, I might check out Calla shoes. I love, love, love the dress you are wearing, by the way! xxx

  5. These are beautiful shoes, indeed, Laurie! I love when a shoe company can combine style, sass, and comfort into a high heeled shoe. I recently am loving wearing heels, but they really do cause a lot of pain after a short period of time. Unless, of course,t hey are made well! Thank you for sharing.

  7. You look very pretty. I like the dress with the asymmetrical hem, but it would look pretty with a straight hem as well. Very pretty shoes. - Amy

  15. They look flattering, comfy and stylish at the same time, so a great design and great news for sufferers. Amazing that technology comes up with these things, I remember my poor Aunty Dot had to cut pieces out of her shoes to accommodate her troubled feet. I'll check out the site. I have what I prefer to call widened feet, I don't want to think I may have the B word!
    The dress and shoes really suit your colouring, lovely outfit.

  18. I don't suffer from bunions but my mom does and she finds it really hard to wear any shoes. Most of the time she wears sneakers. So I will tell her about Calla.
    P.S. I am organizing a link up. Feel free to join and share your post.

  29. I don't have bunions, but I still find nearly every pair of shoes I own hurt me in one way or another so maybe these would be the answer! I love the design and the price is nothing if they are actually comfortable to walk in
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes :)
