THE STORY ... WHY WE LOVE WHAT WE DO ...
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 & bags 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 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.
We make each & every single order as per request - our products are not mass-produced via factory or machinery so therefore every single pair is hand crafted especially for you.
We can guarantee that you will love our products 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 ~~ 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.
WalkaholicS consist of myself (Shlomy Azolay) & my life partner (Lindy-Lu Victor Azolay) whereas we opened WalkaholicS as our 2nd brand which was influenced by the success & demand of our original brand SANDALI ...
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.
