I have been searching for a decent pair of shoes for my 90 year old dad who suffers from edema. It's been such a struggle getting his shoes on and off even with a shoe horn. I did find an inexpensive pair of George fabric shoes from Walmart that he's been wearing outside. They worked because they stretched. They are getting worn so I tried these shoes. He normally wears a 12 but with his swollen feet I got the 13/13 1/2 wide and they fit perfect. He was able to get the left shoe on right away, although I did have to help him with the right which is much more swollen. He'll have to use his shoe horn but that's fine. They still went on easier than his other shoes. The shoes are very well made and look very nice on him. The gel cushion in the heel is very comfortable for him and they are not a very high profile in the front. This is important for us because he would sometimes catch the front part on carpet if he wasn't careful because the sole was too bulky. I looked through most all the reviews of extra wide shoes and many had terrible reviews especially on durability. I will update if necessary to report any issues. As of right now, I do recommend them
Love these shoes! Needed a shoe to fit my swollen foot after ankle surgery... so easy to slip on. So nice how they open all the way to the toes. Very comfortable. Bought up a size after reading reviews... fit great. Very happy!
My mom has issues with leg and foot edema, more so in one side, so finding shoes that she can easily get on or off and allows for the swelling has been a chore. These shoes have addresses her issue of different size feet due to swelling and they are very easy for her to get on and adjust.
