Comfortable Women's Shoes - The WOLKY CLOG at SHOE MILL in Tempe Arizona...

My husband and I did a "Light Rail Adventure" this past Saturday and took the new and beautiful Light Rail from Central Phoenix down to Tempe where we had a fabulous lunch at Cafe Boa after which I promptly dragged him into a shoe store that my patients have been raving about for quite some time...

in Tempe, Arizona...

What a great store! I was really impressed by their wide selection of comfortable shoes and - let's just say it - pretty shoes! From the awesome shoes to the charming, lovely (and knowledgable!) staff, I highly recommend my patients put in the travel time and check this place out.

Although the store had hundreds of wonderful shoes, I focused on four and the first of those four I will review today and the next three will follow shortly...


As all of my patients know, I am a huge fan of the Wolky shoe line and my favorite sandal of all time is the Wolky "Tulip" (which the Shoe Mill also has) but since not everyone lives in sunny Arizona - this is a great enclosed shoe for when the weather gets cooler. This shoe has a supportive sole with decent arch support, a wide toe box and good midfoot and rearfoot control.

This shoe is recommended for patients with:

*Mild to Moderate hammertoes
*Mild bunions (Moderate Bunions - the leather may need some stretching?)
*Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Pain
*Mild to moderate osteoarthritis and dejenerative joint disease
*Hallus Limitus/Hallus Rigidus (Limited Range of motion or arthritis at the 1st toe joint)
*Mild (possibly a moderate) Morton's Neuroma
*Plantar plate injury in the forefoot
*Mild to moderate Tailor's Bunion (the leather may need some stretching?)
*Mild to Moderate Achilles Tendonitis
*Mild to Moderate Tendonitis
*Mild to Moderate hypermobility/ankle instability
*Mild swelling

This may not be recommended for patients with:

*Moderate to Severe swelling
*Charcot Foot
*Severe Degenerative Joint Disease
*Severe Bunions & Hammertoes
*Diabetic Patients
*Neuropathic patients (Nerve damage)
*Patients who need to wear AFO's (custom molded braces)
*Ulcer patients

Cost $164
Rating: Excellent!
