Despite the various men’s shoe trends that cycle every year, comfort styles are here to stay. Brands like Hoka and On have taken center stage in the athletic scene, but running shoes aren’t always the most appropriate option. That’s how so many guys have found Hey Dude shoes—and right now, the most popular style is under $40.
The Hey Dude Wally Sox slip-on sneaker is on sale for as low as $36 on Amazon—a discount of up to 41% off the original price of $60. This is Amazon’s No. 1 bestselling style in the men’s slip-ons and loafers category, which makes sense after reading through the 109,000+ five-star ratings. As with all shoe deals on Amazon, price varies by color and size, but most of the Wally Sox are discounted to some degree.

The shoe itself is pretty simple. The Hey Dude Wally Sox is a round-toe, slip-on shoe made from a breathable fabric upper and elastic laces that allow guys to wiggle their toes freely without feeling restricted. The sole of the shoe is made from a lightweight rubber material that’s flexible and bouncy. What’s immediately noticeable when you slip a pair of these on is how much it weighs—as little as five ounces—practically nothing.
Guys love these because of the shoe’s simplicity but also because of just how many options there are. For example, in the Wally Sox style alone, you can pick from 58 colorways, which is an ungodly but very fun amount of options to choose from. Once you’ve chosen your ideal color(s), it’s all uphill from there. These shoes are one of the most suitcase-friendly pairs you could ever pack because of their weight and flexibility. They toe the line between casualwear and office-appropriate. But they’re also fully machine-washable, which, for an inexpensive shoe, is nearly unheard of.

The resounding consensus among reviews seems to be that they’re comfortable, cool-looking, and a great value for the amount you pay. Many have attributed the overall value to the surprisingly high-quality design. “These are my absolute favorite shoes,” a shopper said. “They slip on quickly and have proven almost indestructible. Wear them for work and play with equal joy. They wash well just as advertised and have held up to my daily wear incredibly well.”
Shoppers have also commonly found themselves picking up multiple colors because they’ve been so impressed with their first pair. “I have a collection of Hey Dudes now,” a shopper admitted. “They are so versatile and comfortable. My go-to shoes for most occasions. Highly recommend everyone get at least one pair.”
It’s for these reasons and so many more that shoppers have continued to love Hey Dude’s Wally Sox slip-on shoes. And while we don’t expect sizes to completely sell out, we do expect the discount to disappear. So if you’ve been looking for your next comfortable go-everywhere shoe, pick up a pair in one of the nearly 60 colors for as low as $36 and feel good about it.
