As we get older, our feet become wider and shoes that were once comfy can pinch. I'm always looking for good solutions to this very common problem, and I do think shoes should look good and be versatile, wherever possible.

I really like the new Daisy-Mae shoe from Cosyfeet. It's low cut, making it ideal for swelling across the foot or around the ankle. This dainty, feminine style is soft but supportive and comes in a EEEEE+ fitting as standard.

A discreet, touch-fastening strap makes it easily adjustable, and its seam-free toe area makes it ideal for problem toes. This lightweight, leather shoe has a hardwearing sole with good grip for a firm footing too.

The Daisy-Mae is a versatile style that goes well with trousers or a skirt. For a Christmas party outfit I'd choose the bronze or the black patent. For everyday wear I particularly like the beetle red, but there are classic colours too, like black and taupe.

This style comes in sizes 3 to 9 including half sizes and is priced at £65.00 (or £54.17 if you qualify for VAT relief because of a chronic medical condition).

If your feet are very swollen then matching strap extensions are available. These lengthen the touch-fastening straps, creating even more room for swelling.
