Kees and Jan believed that the future belonged to shoes that were ‘good for the feet’. Following feedback from customers that the cork footbeds were too hard, they developed their own concept of comfort. Kees went in search of a model more in tune with their ideas.
Not much later, he launched Wolky’s first sandal. It was wide and flat, with a footbed that moulded itself to the foot thanks to an extra layer of memory foam. The Velcro closures made the sandal almost infinitely adjustable. Kees named it the Alto, and Wolky had its very first model.
