The wide range of crochet shoes are made with extra width and extra rows to leave more space for your foot. They also use nylon yarn for the base row for strength and longevity.
Luludu shoes are lovingly handmade using a slow and sustainable approach to production. The high quality comes from the attention to detail given to each shoe.
Our ethical shoes are made using a high quality, long lasting hemp yarn. Hemp needs little to no pesticides to grow, thrives on less water, grows fast and is incredibly strong, making this the perfect yarn to use for these intricate shoes.
The inner sole is made from high quality vegan 'leather' meaning no animals are harmed in the making of these shoes.
The 'leather' is then attached to a 4mm rubber base - the rubber is then doubled at the heel making it 8mm.
The rubber is very flexible and comfortable, and is soft enough to bend with your foot when you walk giving them a barefoot feel.
These shoes are designed to fit measurements of approx 16-17cm on the ball of the foot (the widest area) - measuring from the ground, over the top of the foot, and back to the ground.
Choosing the right shoe size
To ensure a comfortable fit, we recommend choosing a size between 1-9mm longer than your foot. Here's how:
1. Measure your feet while standing barefoot on a ruler or measuring tape
2. Measure the distance between your heel and the longest toe. The width is best measured at the widest part of your foot.
