Patients with feet like Maggies?

As our patients age their feet and ankles can swell. Maggies began to swell following a hip operation. She also has sensitive toes.

"I had trouble finding shoes even before my op. My feet were always wide and my instep rather deep, " says Maggie. "After the op it became impossible."

Maggies feet are typical of Cosyfeets customers. Thankfully for Cosyfeet, Maggie volunteered to be a fit tester and regularly attends meetings at the company's head office in Somerset to help with research and development. Recently she tested the new Audrey shoe.

This dainty style is designed to fit swelling and problem toes with ease, so its perfect for Maggie. It has a specially designed sole unit that conceals its true depth, making swollen feet look slimmer, and comes in a EEEEE+ fitting as standard.



The Audrey shoe has an adjustable, touch-fastening strap and a soft, padded collar that fits swollen or slimmer ankles. For extra comfort and protection, the deep, roomy toe area has a cushioned, seam-free lining, so there's nothing to rub or irritate Maggies toes. A removable footbed gives extra depth for patients to insert orthotics if needed.

Renowned for saying exactly what she thinks, Maggie gave the Audrey shoe her seal of approval:

"Very comfortable and soft at the bach. I don't wear an orthotic but they still fit my feet really well. They look very neat and go with anything."

Made with soft, hand-finished leathers and lined for comfort, the Audrey is available in sizes 3 to 9 including half sizes, priced 69.00 [pounds sterling] or 57.50 [pounds sterling] if patients qualify for VAT relief due to a medical condition. It comes in Black Leather, Navy Leather and Warm Red Leather.
