Welcome to the world of shoe comfort. Your struggle to find stylish and comfortable footwear is over. Our range of European-made shoes is designed especially to fit the feet of women with bunions (hallux valgus) and problem feet.
Shoes designed for bunions, by people who know the struggle
Founded by a bunion sufferer
Calla was founded by Jennifer Bailey, a long-term bunion sufferer, who worked in conjunction with a team of experienced shoe designers and foot experts to create a range of the most comfortable shoes you'll ever wear.
We have incorporated an array of comfort features within our shoes suitable for wide feet and for bunions. Wide fitting toe boxes, hidden stretch panels, ultra soft, luxurious materials, cushioned and arch supported insoles. These all add up to create a shoe experience that will make you feel like walking on air.
We believe that the perfect pair of shoes for bunions should be a combination of three things: comfort, style, and quality. Our talented shoe masters in Portugal put supreme care and craft into making your shoes. Here in England, we enlist the help of podiatrists and shoe professionals to design them. We invite you to meet the people who make your shoes.
Bunions affect an estimated 23% of people aged 18-65, and 35.7% of people over 65 (source). Medically known as hallux valgus, a bunion is a bony lump at the base of the big toe. Bunions occur when the bones in the front of the foot move out of place, and slowly begin pushing towards the toes. Bunion pain is very uncomfortable, and foot health can make all areas of life difficult, making shoes with a comfortable fit around your bunions vitally important.
The bunion bump can cause you pain when walking in normal shape shoes from the extra pressure. Shoes can also hurt your joints and make it hard to balance if you have arthritis. Calla footwear has been designed for bunion sufferers, with plenty of extra cushioning, arch support, and room in the footbed, using soft leather for comfort, and providing plenty of sizes to make sure your shoe is comfortable. Our fashionable bunion-friendly shoes range includes formal dress shoes, loafers, pretty pumps, dressy high heels, cute sneakers, flat sandals, and designer heeled sandals. We also provide wide-toe box shoes for those who need extra comfort, and adjustable straps so you can find the perfect fitting shoe for your foot pain.
