20 Years of Klouds


In the 


The journey began with a single sketch, by our very own Paul Carroll and his son John. After years of listening to customer concerns, Klouds was born so there would no longer be a choice between comfort and style. Now sold over 250 businesses nationwide, we're celebrating 20 years of pushing the boundaries of orthotic footwear with unique designs, innovative technology and quality materials.

The evolution of Klouds

Making of 

a shoe

From an idea or sketch, to the hands of our very expert shoemakers, each design involves a collaborative effort from our close-knit family team.

Meticulously crafted with layers that envelop the unique curvatures of the foot, providing cushioned comfort with every step.

After months of collaboration, sourcing the highest quality leathers and making final adjustments to designs, our shoes come to life in our own little factory.

then and now

From the beginning, Klouds sought to revolutionise comfort footwear, crafting beautiful women’s shoes that could accommodate common foot concerns such as plantar fasciitis, bunions and the need for orthotics.

With comfortable footwear more popular than ever before, Silver Lining now brings a new era of contemporary style with hidden comfort features to the Klouds family.
