Painful feet can make it difficult for someone to do the things they love, whether that’s gardening, enjoying a family day out or just potteringaround the house. The right footwear can make all the difference.

If your loved one suffers from swollen feet, bunions, hammer toes or a condition requiring in-shoe supports, a pair of Cosyfeet shoes orslippers could make the perfect gift. Cosyfeet footwear is specially designedto bring relief to people with foot complaints. Shoes and slippers are extrawide, extra deep and easy to adjust.

  • Padded rims to stop shoes from rubbing
  • Seam-free linings to prevent blisters
