Our unisex shoes come in whole sizes only. Our fit is true to size to a bit on the smaller size. We recommend to size up. If you typically wear a half-size, we recommend you choose a half-size larger. For example: If you typically wear a size 9.5, choose a size 10.

It's easy! VELOUS shoes can be wiped clean with a wet washcloth or washed off with water. They are also machine washable at cold temperatures on the delicate cycle with other clothing items.

To maintain the intended support, flexibility, and fit of our proprietary technology, keep your VELOUS shoes away from extreme heat; do not put VELOUS shoes in the dryer, or leave them exposed for long periods of time to the hot sun.

VELOUS footwear was created using a unique anatomical last shape that follows the average proportions and shape of the foot for both men and women.

VELOUS shoes are made from quick drying textile and a closed cell foam. The shoes absorb minimal moisture, so they’re very functional around water, and they’re quick-drying.

It's your choice! VELOUS shoes are designed to look great and function every bit as effectively, whether you wear them with socks or without.  Keep in mind they may fit slightly differently with or without socks.

Wherever possible we use recycled material in all of our packaging.

The weight will vary by the style you pick, but ½ pair of a Men’s 9 or Women’s 11 weighs 5.2-5.5oz depending on the style.

Absolutely!  Our patent-pending Tri-Motion™ technology has arch support built into the midsole so you will feel the perfect blend of cushion, arch support and flexibility.

Great! Plantar fasciitis occurs when your calves and/or achilles are too tight. In addition to seeking guidance from a medical professional, do lots of stretching and wear products that have arch support. VELOUS footwear has great heel cushioning and stability, relieving stress from the achilles, supporting your arch, and helping prevent pronation.

Our shoes are designed and developed in Portland Oregon and manufactured in our partner factory in China using globally sourced materials.
