After a long winter of heavy boots and thick socks, you might be looking forward to a change in seasons – and a change in your footwear. With temperatures finally rising, you might be seeking a stylish yet comfortable new shoe for spring and summer 2019. We don’t think you’ll need to look further than our great range of Hey Dude shoes.
Many People Wear Poorly Fitting Shoes
In research completed by the College of Podiatry, it has been found that an increasing number of people are suffering from foot health issues due to improperly fitting shoes. Not having their feet measured, ‘fashionable’ shoes being made of poor quality materials, and online shopping resulting in people not trying shoes on before buying them are all fuelling this problem.
However, our Hey Dude range of shoes is revolutionising stylish footwear – without compromising on comfort.
What Are Hey Dude Shoes?
Hey Dude shoes are an Italian company founded in 2008 with the sole (pun intended) aim of making the world’s most comfortable shoes. By combining modern lightweight materials, durable soles and removable insoles, a pair of Hey Dude shoes is sure to be a worthy investment in your wardrobe.
One of the big design positives with a pair of Hey Dude shoes is the removable memory foam insole. Designed so you can look as effortlessly cool walking the streets of Britain as if you were on the Amalfi Coast or the piazzas of Venice, the removable insole means you can wear these shoes barefoot without worrying about foot odour ruining your style. The insoles can be wiped clean, and the rest of the shoe machine-washed to maintain freshness.
Many people already know the benefits of a memory foam insole, which include improved comfort and support. They have been used in sports shoes for some years and are said to improve runner’s comfort by reducing impact stress, and improving arch support and stabilisation. So why not aim for this level of support on a daily basis?

Hey Dude shoes are designed with comfort in mind, so the shoe uppers are as seamless as possible; there’s no annoying stitching to rub your feet. The soles are made of patented rubber, which is lightweight and streamlined. In fact, the weight of Hey Dude shoes starts as little as 150 grams – about the same as two pairs of socks – so you’ll feel like you’re walking on air!
The ‘upper’ term is fairly self-explanatory – it refers to the part of the shoe that isn’t the sole. By using breathable materials, Hey Dude has designed shoes that will keep your feet at a comfortable temperature, while looking stylish too. Materials include canvas and felt, which can be washed to increase their casual appearance.
Bearing our changeable climate in mind, we’d also recommend spraying the shoes before you wear them for the first time with a waterproofing treatment to help prevent staining or damage to the fabric of the shoes. This will keep them looking great, no matter what the weather decides to do.
We know how important comfort is when it comes to choosing footwear, so you can visit Sweetfeet Shoes in our Totnes shop to try our shoes on before you buy them. The great thing about Hey Dude shoes is that they are designed for comfort – so even if you can’t try them on first, we’re sure you won’t be disappointed!
