ART & SOUL - WULKURAKA DESIGNS + WOMBATS

All of our SOLES with SOUL collaborations are close to our heart, but this one really is so very dear to our SOUL. 

Being an Australian brand, and recently having travelled to the heart of this amazing country, Uluru, we have had the opportunity to feel the spirit and connect with the land that is so sacred to our First Nations, the Australian Indigenous people.

There is therefore no more perfect time than now to introduce our latest Soles with Soul collaboration, with Wulkuraka Designs.

The very talented artist Ailsa Walsh has created two designs for us, DHAGUN, meaning ‘ground’ (featured on our Velcro sneaker style) and YUINGIN, ‘friendship’, featured on our Chelsea Boot style.

We couldn’t be more proud to be an Australian brand, and we have always prided ourselves on being all about connecting with the world around us, both via meaningful YUINGIN - friendships - and also quite literally, by creating shoes that facilitate optimal connection between our feet and the DHAGUN - ground.

As with all of our Soles with Soul collaborations we will be donating 5% of the proceeds from the sale of these styles to a charity of the artist’s choice, and in this instance, Ailsa has selected Cedar Creek Wombat Rescue Inc. & Hospital as wombats are ground land spirits and part of Ailsa’s spirit.

PK SIZING - FIND YOUR SIZE

FOR BEST RESULTS... 

Our size charts are specific to our shoes, and may differ from your usual footwear so we always recommend you measure before ordering.

If needing more detailed instructions on "How to Measure" please scroll down below the size charts.

HOW TO MEASURE

Stand with feet on a piece of paper, and mark where the end of the longest toe/s are, and middle point of the back of the heel. 

Use a ruler to measure between those two points. (Use your longest foot measurement - Look at the "BEST FIT" column to see where the foot fits best.

* If closer to the end of the "BEST FIT" measurements then the next size up will be a better choice.

For most comfortable fit, aim to have up to 7-12mm of extra space in the shoe.  

If socks will be worn in the shoes, pop on the socks and then measure in the same manner. 

We include a width measurement across the ball of the shoe, this is a measurement of the FLATTEST part of the sole, so there is always more available space than stated, as the sole curves out and up giving your feet more room to spread. 

We also have a natural rubber sole that is able to flex with a foot, which helps accomodate feet that have more width. 

While the available length measurements are the same across all styles, the upper construction affects the fit and feel of the shoe.
