Calla shoes is the brainchild of owner Jennifer Bailey, a bunion sufferer of the last 20 years and a serial hunter of stylish shoes to wear for special occasions. Jennifer understands the pain of not being able to find shoes to fit your feet better than anyone, having gone through it for the most of her life. 

Having founded Calla shoes after being made redundant while pregnant, Jennifer’s aim in establishing the company was to provide women with bunions with comfortable, yet fashionable shoes.

Jennifer has always had the idea to establish a brand of shoes for women who suffer from bunions like her. However, the business vision only really came together in her head after she struggled immensely to find a suitable pair of shoes for her wedding (and ended up kicking off the uncomfortable heels she was wearing after an hour).

Years of research later, Calla was launched to the delight of women all over the world, and the comfort that our shoes provide is loved by customers in 50+ countries.

Now that you know how Calla came to be, we know that you must be wondering how we actually make our shoes fit bunions and problem feet. 

Unlike regular wide fitting shoes, Calla footwear is wide in the toe box, but standard in the heel. This allows us to provide you with additional width and volume where you need it most across your bunions, without having your heel pop out of the shoe.

We only source the softest, luxury leather and suede, to accommodate your bunions and ensure that there's no rubbing.

Our uppers are carefully crafted to disguise your bunions, with vamps coming up higher than in regular footwear, to ensure that your lumps and bumps are 'tucked in'.

Comfort is key, so we have made sure that each Calla shoe features a cushioned and arch supported insole, to support your foot.

Our flats in particular are worn by ladies struggling with plantar fasciitis, Morton's neuroma, diabetes, tailor's bunions, and many more. 

To ensure the highest quality of materials and craftsmanship, all Calla shoes are handmade in the Porto region of Portugal. We are really proud of the process, and we invite you to meet the people who make your shoes
