hello all. i have secondary lower lymphodeama in both legs, my left foot/leg is much bigger than my right. the only footwear i can wear are sandals, but they need extra long straps to go round my feet. this means that if it rains i am housebound. for the last year i have been trying to find slippers to fit me!!!!! i have tried every where, cosyfeet and any other online shop that advertises larger foot fitting, invariably they dont. i have purchaSED AND RETURNED ABOUT 25 PAIRS OF SLIPPERS SO FAR. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS PLEASE. DO NOT SUGGEST COSYFEET I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING THEY SELL.

Could you get your clinic to prescribe a pair of Cellona Shoes - several of my clients use them.

Do you live in the UK because I went to my GP asked if I can be referred to the orthotics at the hospital because they make specialist shoes and I get two pairs every 2 years and they are fantastic I couldn't wear anything before until I have these shoes

I don't know if you are male or female. However if you are female try men's footwear. Some styles are fine and men's footwear is wider and deeper than ladies footwear.

I used Velcro one wrap to extend the straps on my husbands Cosyfeet trainers , I also used it on his sandals to extend the straps . It comes in different widths and colours and you just cut it to size .

i have sandles with extra long straps, i drove down to the cosyfeet shop in street to be measured properly. but my real problem is trying to get slippers to fit, my left foot is very swollen, so i cannot find slippers to fit. i have bought and returned about 20 pairs of slippers. this means that i have to walk about indoors with bare feet, which causes lots of problems.
