I love these Pia Wallen slippers – sadly, they’re for babies only. Where are the sites for adult footwear like this?
In common with many mobility-impaired people, I have poor circulation resulting in swollen ankles and feet.
Every morning, I use a Huntleigh compression boot to try and minimise the swelling; I also try and make sure to elevate my legs at night and during physio; I have regular, and intensive, foot massages for lymphatic drainage but, whatever I do, some degree of fluid build-up is inevitable.
This makes shopping for shoes a nightmare. Not only is it difficult to find shoes that fit but they must be protective; easy to get on and off (carers find it impossible to manage otherwise); in black; and, preferably, not be so ugly that I cannot bear to look at them.
I already mentioned the problems I have had with outdoor footwear, in Made to Measure, but, during the day, I am indoors mostly so wear felt mules, like those from Haflinger but they no longer seem to do them in black. For goodness sake – no black! I need a replacement and these Pia Wallen slippers would be perfect. If I can’t do style, I am able to live with quirky. Anyone seen anything like this for adults? And where do other people shop for stylish footwear for swollen feet? Do let me know.
