Who should buy the Hey Dude Wally Sox

This Hey Dude moc would be a great choice for a guy who needs the following:

  • a no-nonsense slip-on shoe that can be worn anywhere and styled with many outfits
  • a super-light yet comfortable shoe for walking
  • an easy-to-pack shoe for traveling
  • a spacious toebox to medium-to-wide feet
  • a budget-friendly sneaker (it is a really cheap option considering that sneakers cost $110 on average).

Who should not buy this shoe

If you are someone with narrower feet and fly out of the shoes easily, you would prefer a more foot-hugging shoe, like Skechers GOwalk Max or Vans Slip-On.

This Hey Dude moc also doesn’t offer a lof cushioning for all-day wear. It also lacks arch support for those with flat feet and overpronation. Consider getting Skechers Arch Fit if you need a more supportive platform. There are also more than 30 shoes from 7 different brands that come with additional arch support.

It’s a well-fitting shoe but check the size chart first

Those new to the brand experienced some difficulties selecting the right size. Especially given that Hey Dude doesn’t offer half sizes. To increase your chances of getting the correct size in Hey Dude Wally Sox, we highly recommend checking with the brand’s size chart. If you fall in between sizes, try going with the larger one.

As for the shoe’s fit itself, the wearers agree that the name “Sox” really matches the in-shoe experience. The stretch-polyester fabric on the upper molds and conforms to the foot really well.

The moc has a really spacious toebox which could be a problem for those with narrower feet. However, it is absolutely ideal for wider feet. As one lady reports, it perfectly fits her son “whose feet are shaped like bricks.”

Easy-breezy on-and-off

The no-tie system is highly appreciated by the reviewers as it makes the process of putting the shoe on and taking it off so fast. “Easy to slip on and go in a hurry,” says one of them. However, a few wearers had issues with the shoestrings themselves: some found them too long and had to shorten the laces while others complained that the “little things on the laces always fall off.”

So comfy you’ll want to sleep in the Wally Sox

The vast majority of reviewers highlighted how comfortable the Hey Dude Wally Sox feels: “like house shoes,” “comfort is outa this world,” “I live in them.” Some of them are also happy that it doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort, nor does it aggravate their existing foot issues. The cases include gout and neuropathy.

The ergonomically-designed memory foam insole also contributes to underfoot comfort a lot. And if you need to wear a custom orthotic, it is also easily removable.

A few religious fans of Crocs report that the Hey Dude Wally even became a new go-to shoe for them.

Lightweight and “barely-there”

Many people were impressed with the lightness of the Hey Dude Wally Sox and agree that it’s “crazy light.” They love the lightness of the step in the shoe and some felt like having nothing on their feet.

This characteristic makes it an excellent choice for travelers. Together with the flexible sole, the shoe takes up little space in the backpack and adds very little weight.

Surprisingly durable

Those who have worn the Wally Sox for about a year report that the shoe has held up rather well. With its lower price range, really lasting quality isn't expected but the shoe is a nice surprise.

Hey Dude Wally Sox is easy to maintain

All Hey Dude shoes are machine-washable to the joy of most wearers. Just take out the insoles and throw them into the machine.

An attractive casual style that goes with anything

The guys are really satisfied with the Wally Sox as it can be worn for so many different occasions and with so many outfits. Be it more casual or a more formal business casual, the moc can fit them all. Some are also glad that the shoe’s color ended up looking the same in person as it is in the pictures.

“My wife is hitting on me when I wear them,” says one proud wearer.
