FAQs

Here are some common questions we receive about Kingdom of Wow!

About the slippers

Your Kingdom of Wow! slippers are made entirely of flexible yarn. That’s why our slippers can accommodate two regular shoe sizes. When in doubt or when you’ve a half size, it’s best to choose the smaller size. The yarn will stretch and shape to your feet, which it can’t do if the slipper is too big.

Help us get your order right first time by taking a simple foot measurement. Mark the front of your longest toe and the back of your heel bone on paper, then check the length in the size chart below. Easy peasy eh! This simple task can help avoid unnecessary returns and reduce your impact on the planet!

Nope. Your Kingdom of Wow! slippers are made from quality yarns with a minimum of 50% Lopi and Merino wool. Just like a sheep’s fleece, your slippers will keep you warm when it’s cold and cool when it’s warm. This is thermoregulation, a unique property of wool.

Kingdom of Wow! slippers are designed for indoor use. We added a leather sole to protect the slippers from wear and tear and to keep you safe on smooth surfaces. However if you need to take out the trash in your slippers, go for it! But taking the dog for a walk, we’d recommend you slip into outdoor shoes.

Natural fibers such as wool rarely lead to contact-allergies. However on sensitive skins these fibers can occasionally cause itching or irritation. Generally, the better the quality of the wool, the lesser chance of irritation. And we use some of the very best quality yarns in our slippers!

Yes. You can machine wash your Kingdom of Wow! slippers occasionally using a cool wool program, then dry flat. But you’ll find that because of the wool’s breathability, the slippers will remain odor-free and shouldn’t need washing often.

The leather soles follow the shape of your foot: just like the arches of your feet don’t touch the ground, neither will your Kingdom of Wow! slippers. Putting on a full-covering sole would have limited the stretching properties of the yarn. For maximum comfort, we prefer the slippers to shape to your feet instead of forcing your feet to fit the shape of the footwear.

About the espadrilles

Your Kingdom of Wow! espadrilles are made in standard US sizes. Sizes available are shown below in a handy size chart.

The espadrilles are made cotton canvas or denim so can stretch a little with wear. Espadrilles should feel a little tight when first wearing to allow for this give in the fabric.

Still not sure of your size? Simply measure your feet by marking the front of your longest toe and the back of your heel bone on paper. Measure the length and use the chart to confirm your size. Easy! This simple task can help avoid unnecessary returns and reduce your impact on the planet!

For those with a high instep, we recommend the ExtraFit with flexible elastic band to maximize comfort on the instep.

Kingdom of Wow! is currently working on production development to create larger sizes across our summer collection to accommodate those with larger feet! Watch this space for further news!

Our ExtraFit design is fitted with a flexible elastic band that maximizes comfort on the instep. This design can be worn by anyone but offers ready-to-wear comfort for people with a high instep. 

Our Classic design, as the name suggests, offers a more traditionally styled espadrille without the fitted elastic band.  

Yes! Your Kingdom of Wow! espadrilles are traditionally worn outdoors. They’re the perfect summer shoe.  

Remove excess dirt from your espadrilles gently with a soft brush, then clean with a damp cloth using a small amount of mild laundry detergent without bleaching agent. Rinse with a clean cloth and dry naturally. We do not recommend machine washing or submerging your espadrilles fully in water as this may compromise the adhesive used to attach the jute soles and organic rubber outer.

Should the adhesive become compromised over time, we recommend you use cement glue to carefully repair the soles of your espadrilles.

About the company

Making our footwear is a real work of love and handmade entirely by our local team in Cambodia.

Our wool slippers are hand-crocheted. The soles are hand-cut and punched from supple leather hide and hand-sewn with care onto the slippers. They’re finished with carefully selected accessories. 

The cotton canvas of our espadrilles are hand-cut precisely to strict size patterns. Once machine sewn, the cotton uppers are pinned to the jute soles then hand-sewn together with traditional blanket stitch.

All our footwear is handmade in the Kingdom of Wonder: Cambodia. We have our own workshop in Siem Reap, a stone’s throw away from the amazing temples of Angkor.

Kingdom of Wow! came from a play on the nickname Kingdom of Wonder, by which Cambodia is affectionately known.

Thanks for asking! We want to make comfortable footwear that helps you relax but do so responsibly. Fair, safe and healthy work conditions are our top priority and the reason why we operate our own production workshop. Keeping manufacturing in-house means we don’t just check and monitor, but directly decide: the wages paid, the working environment, the insurances and benefits, and much much more. It also enables us to keep track of our supply chain and monitor suppliers which is probably one of the biggest challenges for conscious brands.

Our intention is to source and produce to leave the smallest footprint as possible. A big goal for a small brand, but we make our choices to consider carefully our impact on the planet.
