Who should NOT buy it

If you're looking for a no-stretch pair that comes in half sizes, trade the Hey Dude Wally for the Vans Leather Slip-On. Also, check out the Greats Royale—it comes in a box by default and has a slimmer profile than the featured sneaker.

The Wally's solid construction

Many reviewers gravitate toward the Hey Dude Wally for its sturdiness. They find it reassuringly firm despite its minimalist design.

Smooth and easy access

Getting in and out of the Hey Dude Wally is a breeze, according to quite a number of reviewers. Someone who has super-wide feet says he "has no issues sliding in and out of them." Another one says that wearing the Wally is "like putting on a set of bedroom slippers that have style!"

Questionable shape retention

The Hey Dude Wally, based on several reports, stretches out of shape. It "started fitting loose right away," says one sneaker fan. The shoe "stretched out quickly," said another.

But it's washer-friendly

One of the Hey Dude Wally's aces is its easy-to-wash construction. Whether by hand or through the washer, this lightweight sneaker gets clean in no time. Tip: use moderately warm water mixed with a little bit of soap to remove dirt faster.

Hey Dude Wally equals surprisingly supportive

These shoes "provide great support," says an avid Hey Dude fan. It might not look it, but Wally's sole unit has a level of plushness and firmness that makes walking and standing about all day a great experience.

Available only in full sizes

Its lack of half sizes is among Hey Dude Wally's few criticisms. "Wish it came in half sizes for a better fit," says a not-so-amused sneakerhead.

Hey Dude Wally: Not the slimmest-looking shoe in town

Despite its low-profile build, the Hey Dude Wally has a somewhat bulky appearance. It can "make your feet look huge," says the individual who still finds the featured kick great.

Bagged not boxed

A minor issue, perhaps, but the shoe being shipped in a bag and not a box isn't very appealing to some. A verified purchaser has beef with this, saying that if a shoe comes in a bag, its price should be lower.

That being said, this Hey Dude kick is already quite affordable. Compared with the average price of slip-on sneakers, the Wally is $38 cheaper. For other budget-friendly kicks, click here.
