General Questions

"Womads" comes from the words "women" and "nomads" fused together.

I founded Womads because I am an active woman who loves traveling and exploring in comfort and style.

For me, being a nomad is feeling the excitement of the unknown, looking for new discoveries, constantly learning from others, making the most of all situations, adapting and growing.

At its core, Womads is about supporting other women on their exploration of their life journey.

The Womads peep toe flats are so comfortable and versatile that they will become your go-to shoes for living your active life. You won't have to worry about prioritizing either style or comfort, because now you can get both together. They are the best shoes for traveling women, they are comfortable for all-day wear, and they are stylish for evening wear.

We're proud to be based in Miami Beach. We do not currently have any store locations, but if you're in the area don't hesitate to get in touch!

You can find our entire collection here.

Our products are handcrafted in Medellín, Colombia by expert shoemakers. Learn why here!

Our leather is sourced from Colombia and our soles are manufactured in Medellín. Our soles are made from natural rubber sourced in the south of Colombia where farmers are reforesting areas previously drained and used for growing illicit crops.

Learn more about our soles here.

I would argue that Womads leather flats are the best travel sandals. You can slip numerous pairs into your suitcase or bag without them taking much space. They're very practical to slip on and off during airport security checks. They are both great walking sandals for women exploring new places all day long, and comfortable dress sandals perfect for your evening activities.

Sizing & Fit

At the moment we offer sizes 6 to women's sandals size 11. We're hoping to expand our sizes in 2024 to include sizes 5 and 12, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you're looking for additional options.

Shop by size here.

Womads Peep Toe Flats fit true to size, so if you're a size 7 typically, you'll be a size 7 in Womads. If you're a half size, I recommend sizing down since the leather will stretch to your foot and the elastic keeps the shoes flexible.

Please refer to this size guide for additional size details.

The Womads are neither wide nor narrow, but the leather has room to stretch to your foot.

Unfortunately, we aren't able to offer wide sizes yet.

I'm really sorry if we don't carry your size yet. We are still a very small business and need to be careful with inventory. However, my goal is to make Womads as accessible as possible to support all women. So please send me an email letting me know what size you need and I'll make note of it for future plans.

Our goal was to make the most comfortable sandals for women and our Peep Toe Womads are slip on sandals that are as comfortable as it gets without wearing slippers. The upper will stretch to your foot shape and the heel is extra supple without rigid reinforcements. The inner sole is made of a thin layer of breathable padded leather. Your foot will feel supported without any restrictions.

The soft leather used to make Womads shoes is specifically selected because it's strong but stretchy. After a few walks, you'll notice that the upper starts taking on the shape of your toes. That's why it's best to size down.

Womads leather sandals soles are purposefully very light and thin to be as flexible as possible and effortlessly stay on your feet.

The insole is flat and doesn't have added arch support. We avoided adding a rigid insole to give your feet more freedom of movement, to mimic a more natural walking sensation and to allow your feet to strengthen themselves over time.

Absolutely! We made Womads peep toe flats for this purpose, so that you'd have a stylish option that you can wear all day if needed. The insole is lightly padded with leather and the natural rubber sole has great grip and flexibility. You'll feel light on your feet and free to move!

This one depends. We've had women with Plantar Fasciitis love their new Womads.

For example, Madison Kelly wrote:
"These shoes are perfect and I wear them everywhere. I wear an 8.5 so got the 8…. It took a few wears to have them stretch out comfortably, but now I’m unstoppable! I wanted something dressier (than other brand adventure sandals) but would be ok with my crippling plantar fasciitis. Wearing them to dinner, then the 4 mile walk after dinner, it’s safe to say these shoes take the cake! Thank you Womads!"

However, we are not doctors and cannot advise on what's best for your foot condition. Our hope is that Womads provide relief to as many women as possible, but please consult your doctor for personalized recommendations.

If you're unsure, please reach out to us so we can help and also remember that you can return your pair if it doesn't work out.

Product Care and Use

Cleaning your Womads every so often is a great way to keep them looking their best. When they get a little dirty, start by wiping them down with a soft humid cloth.

We made a leather cream specifically for caring for your Womads, and you can see this article for detailed instructions.

The Womads soles do not retain odor. After continuous usage in hot Miami summers we have NOT detected any "foot smell". The leather sole is very breathable and these peep toe sandals have great ventilation which prevents smelly bacteria from forming.

Yes, the sole is made of natural rubber which provides very good grip. The texture on the bottom of your sole gives an additional traction. The Womads are great fashionable walking sandals for women because you won't slip or feel unstable.

Ideally you wouldn't purposefully soak your Womads. That being said, we have done many tests—getting caught in Miami rain storms—and, once dry, the Womads look unchanged. Metallic leathers (ex. Golden Nectar and Silver Mirror) are a little more delicate, so try not to get those wet as much as possible.

Yes! These women's leather flats are expertly made to last. The soft Colombian leather and natural rubber used to make these comfortable sandals are only the best quality. You can wear them every day to walk, bike, work, travel, etc. without worry.

I recommend signing up for our Back in Stock notifications directly from the product page. You'll see a button that says ["Out of stock"] once you enter your email we'll add you to a list to be notified when an item is back. Some Womads are limited edition colors or might not come back in stock for reasons outside of our control. If that's the case, we'll make sure to notify you by email. Otherwise, we will keep you notified by email of when we expect items to be restocked as we create a new batch of our items.
