Care Guide
We recommend hand-washing your Peluvas with mild detergent. In the event that they get super dirty, you can machine wash the non-leather models in warm water and allow them to air dry. If you are spending time sockless and notice any odors, you might try some medicated foot powder inside once in a while.

    Dream shoes!

    I absolutely adore these shoes. I have Multiple sclerosis and my toes fold in on each other because of it. These shoes are an absolute dream.They separate my toes. They make it easier for me to walk. They are just all around the best shoes I have ever had! I have recommended then to all my friends and family.

    Good shoes, but still slightly stiff

    I really like these shoes. I feel it's helped my pinky toe really reacclimate to a more balanced stance. My only criticism is that even if those social media influencer promoting the shoe display the overall flexibility, the sole is still a bit stiff despite illustrations of showing otherwise. I can't flex my toes inward. It is a tadbit water resistant, which I did not expect. I still think it's a good shoes

    Good, quality shoes

    I received these shoes and were so excited to try them and luckily they didn't disappoint. These shoes are so comfortable and lightweight ( just like the description). They are made out of a wonderful material and can fold in half due to high flexibility levels. However they also provide support and protect your feet. I love these shoes. Though they look a little funky (as I am constantly told by friends and family) and are a little wide for my feet, I do really enjoy wearing them and having lots of mobility with my toes.
