Welcome to WalkaholicS ... It all started with a great idea and a little hard work. Today we're proud to provide quality handmade leather sandals, shoes & boots direct to your doorstep through an experience you'll enjoy. And most of all, we hope you'll enjoy the products as much as we do.
We create quality handmade leather sandals & shoes based on a Unisex Collection. We understand that investing in people is the most valuable way to create sustainable change. We also understand the importance of carefully sourcing my materials, an approach which continues to be a central part of our business, enabling us to truly appreciate what goes into each pair of handcrafted sandals, shoes or boots.
I can guarantee that you will love our footwear as they are one of a kind ... not only are they beautiful but they are also extremely comfortable !!!
We regard our items to be of top notch quality whereas we use sustainable products that are environmentally friendly. Using only natural Italian leather, we finish each piece with a protective varnish but refrain from using any dyes or artificial substances. The soles of each pair are made from recycled rubber which is durable, light & supple.
Each & every single pair of sandals, shoes or boots are handmade from thick COW leather & finished off with a special varnish.
Our family history is steeped with leather craft and I've had lifelong training, both formal & informal, in the art of shoe making. My grandparents were in the leather business which led me to become a Shoe Master ... I've traveled & studied the 'Art of Leather' in India for 2 years whereas I then went for a 'Shoe Design' course in Florence, Italy. After completing my design course I then returned back to Israel whereas then completed my 'Shoe Master' course ... since then I have created many amazing shoes varying from sandals, high heels & boots for both men & women.

All our sandals are handmade locally here in Israel ... We have a Loft /Studio in Tel-Aviv where we design & produce all our products ... WalkaholicS is a licensed trademark since 2010 where we originally started a small entrepreneur enterprise ( our first label SANDALI - casual brand ) which has grown dramatically within the last 5 years !!
Shlomy is the master though behind it all He lived and studied the Art of Leather in India for 2 years, a few years locally here Israel He also just finished his Degree in Shoe Master whereas he makes the most amazing shoes & boots so hopefully by the beginning of winter we will be able to start his new collection of all kinds of shoes & boots which we would love to share with Apolis. Shlomy is more the creator & he is in charge of maintaining production whereas I am more the administrator - I am in charge of running our Online Stores, Support, Communications, Marketing & SEO I have to say that we have a hot spot on Google. When the sandals come from the factory also help to varnish them and do all the painting and designs & decoration as per our orders before preparing them for shipment. I love the idea of learning something from a completely traditional perspective and then using those skills to reinvent the now.
We do everything ourselves -- from the Production, Admin, Shipping to Customer Support - believe in DIY but most importantly adding that personal touch to our business by being physically involved. We regard our sandals to be of the utmost quality & we believe that if we deliver high-quality sandals that are not only beautiful but also comfortable then that's what we call priceless !!!!
