1. Hey Dude shoes come in lots of different colors and styles — for all ages.
These popular shoes are fan-favorites of the whole family. Not only does my two-year-old have a pair, but also my husband and my dad. I’m still waiting for my own pair *hint-hint, hubby.* Here’s what makes them stand apart from the rest: They form to your feet, the soles are like bouncy clouds, and they come in various colors and styles so you can wear them with almost everything.
2. Why are Hey Dude shoes so popular? Their comfort!
Although Hey Dude shoes launched in 2008 in Italy, they didn’t become widely popular in the U.S. until late 2020. I recall for Christmas 2021, I was hunting high and low for a pair for my husband. I couldn’t find them anywhere! And every store I went into, all I heard was people asking for Hey Dudes and if they were available or not. Ninety-five percent of the time, it was followed up with a “nope.”
These shoes are something everyone can love. They are made of sustainable materials, they’re super comfortable, and they’re stylish. Their classic style just slips on, so you don’t have to tie them.
In 2021, Crocs purchased the Hey Dude shoe brand. With such a big company owning them now, I hope we’ll see a better inventory flow this holiday season and into 2023.
3. You can buy Hey Dude shoes for $29.95 and up, but aim to save at least 35%.
The retail starting price is $39.95 for toddlers and reaches up to $79.95 once you get into the Hey Dude men’s shoes.
The Hey Dude shoes for women have a retail price starting at $29.95 (because they have sandals), and they go up to $69.95. These prices range depending on which style you purchase. Hey Dude sandals are on the cheaper end of the spectrum for both men and women (starting from $29.95).
But don’t worry, you’ll never end up spending the regular retail price. Count on always saving at least 35% when buying them. Plus, you should never pay for shipping.
4. Always look for a Hey Dude Discount Code before you buy.
There is always a Hey Dude discount code or coupon code out there to find. New Hey Dude shoppers can count on saving 15% on their first order when they sign up for their emails. To sign up, scroll to the bottom of the home page and enter your email in the bottom left box. In addition to the 15% off discount code, there will be a Hey Dude discount code for 20% off your order of $75+.
The best part? You can use these discount codes on top of the Hey Dude shoe sales. In July 2022, Hey Dude had shoes up to 50% off, plus you could use your 15% off code on top of that. Always check Hey Dude directly before shopping other retailers, as they typically have the best sales when you combine them with coupons.
Hey Dude Shoes are also sold on Amazon. Amazon puts them on sale for as low as $28 for adults. Just make sure they’re sold and shipped by Amazon to ensure authenticity. In December 2022, Amazon had an offer where you’d save 25% when you purchased $70 in Hey Dudes — making each pair as low as $20.61.
Ever since Crocs purchased Hey Dudes, we’re hoping that when Crocs go on sale, Hey Dudes will have a similar sale, too. If you can save at least 35%, we say that’s a good deal. Anything over 35% off is a great deal.

6. Here are the most popular styles of Hey Dude Shoes (drumroll, please).
Hey Dude shoes come in sizes for small children, huge adults, and everyone in between. There are different Hey Dude shoe styles for men, women, and kids. They have the classic moc style, boots, sneakers, and sandals.
Hey Dude Men’s Shoes
Wally ($59.95 – $64.95+)
The most popular Hey Dude style for those who like men’s shoes is the Wally. This is your classic Hey Dude shoe. The Wally comes in the standard material, Wally Eco Linen, and Wally ADV. All Wally shoes are designed with an “easy-on” system. Men’s sizes run from 6 to 15.
The classic Wally is made of a breathable stretch fabric. Wally Eco Linen is like the classic Wally but with a minimal aesthetic. Wally ADV is the classic Wally but made for performance and travel — in fact, it’s designed with stretch nylon that repels water and is flexible enough to fold for travel. The Wally shoe starts at $59.95 when not on sale.
If you love your Hey Dudes but need to look a little nicer for work, you can opt for the Dress Casual style. These come in a few different colors and have an ultra-grip outsole. But don’t worry — they still have the easy-on system. These have a little higher retail price, starting at $64.95.
Looking to go super chill? You can snag a pair of Hey Dude sandals. Depending on the style you choose, some feature their flex and fold technology, a microfiber-wrapped toe post, mesh-lined footbed, memory foam, and ultra-light weight. Sandals have a starting retail price of $34.95.
Hey Dude Shoes for Women
The women’s Hey Dude section has double the options as the men’s. You can choose from the classic Wendy, sandals, platforms, slip-ons, sneakers, and boots. Women’s sizes run from 5 to 11. The Wendy, platforms, and boots have a starting retail price of $54.95, sandals start at $29.95, and slip-on and sneakers start at $49.95.
The Wendy is like the women’s version of Wally, as it’s designed for women and is a bit narrower than the Wally. They still have a lightweight, breathable material, but the fun colors are where the Wendy shines. This style even features popular patterns, like the Star Spangled, Confetti Pink, and Glo.
Kids’ Hey Dude Shoes
The kids’ styles are so stinkin’ cute. Kids have the option of a kids’ Wendy and boots, which come in sizes as small as a 5 in toddlers and go up to a big kid 6. The kids’ Wendy comes in some of the most creative shoe patterns and colors I’ve seen. One even looks like a sprinkle donut. Toddler Wendys have a starting retail price of $39.95, and the kids’ Wendys start at $44.95. Kids’ Britt boots have a starting price of $49.95.
If you’re like me and have tiny feet, you can save money and still shop in the Hey Dude kids’ department. Take your adult size and subtract 1.5 sizes from it, giving you your kids’ size. For example, I wear a size 5.5 in women’s and can wear a size 4 in kids. Men can technically do this hack, but you have to be a size 7 or smaller.
By purchasing the kids’ pair of Hey Dudes, you’ll save $15.
7. Learn how to clean Hey Dude shoes:
Unless your Hey Dude Shoes are made of suede, leather, or wool, you can clean your Hey Dude shoes in the washer. Check out this step-by-step guide to washing your Hey Dude shoes in the washing machine.
Heads up: Although the Hey Dudes website has instructions on washing their shoes, they say the shoes will no longer be eligible for returns or the warranty policy after a machine wash. Bummer.
