I recently saw a fashion article in Woman's Weekly about winter boots to fit problem feet. I was especially interested in some boots with an Elastane 'front', which stretch to fit. They're a well thought-through problem solver and they look great too.
The Julia Elastane ankle boot from Cosyfeet is specially designed for ladies who need extra width and stretch due to swollen feet, bunions, hammer toes or bandages. This lightweight style is perfect for wintry weather and comes in an EEEEE+ fitting as standard.
The front part of the boot is made from soft, stretchy Elastane, which won't put pressure on painful toes, joints or swelling. The back of the boot is made from soft leather, so it's very supportive around the ankle.
These warm and comfy, softly padded boots are ideal for swollen or problem feet and fasten securely with an adjustable touch-fastening strap. You could team them with boot-cut trousers or jeans for a stylish, seasonal look.
The 'Julia Elastane' has a flexible, shock-absorbing sole and is treated with Teflon fabric protector, which is stain and water-resistant. A removable insole and comfort footbed allow for the use of orthotics if required.
The 'Julia Elastane' ankle boot is available in Black, Brown, Loganberry or Navy and comes in sizes 3 to 9 including half sizes, priced £79.00 (or £65.83 if you qualify for VAT relief due to a chronic medical condition).
