Swollen Feet

Swollen feet can be caused by a wide variety of conditions, some of which are localised and affect only the feet and ankles, whilst others are systemic, affecting the whole body as with kidney or liver failure.

What Causes Swollen Feet?

Swelling is caused by a build up of fluids in the tissues of the feet. The swelling of feet may be temporary and can be as a result of a diet high in salt and carbohydrates or the extensive use of laxatives, diuretics or other medication. Some people experience swollen feet only during the summer months - this can be caused if the person has been walking or standing for long periods in high temperatures.

What can you do about Swollen Feet?

It is imperative to visit your doctor if you have persistent foot swelling or in addition, if you have been experiencing problems breathing, or with weight gain or skin lesions. Whatever the cause, what is certain is that having swollen feet can adversely affect your mobility and your comfort. Having correctly fitting footwear is key to achieving optimal comfort.

Shoes suitable for people with Swollen Feet

Why are our shoes so good for those with Swollen Feet?

Most DB easy b shoes have been designed to be as smooth internally as possible to reduce the possibility of rubbing. There are very few internal seams, and where seams exist, we have put them in a position that will reduce the possibility of rubbing.

A number of our styles have seam free toe boxes to reduce the risk of rubbing to a minimum. These shoes are less likely to chafe, providing comfort and security, provided they have been fitted correctly.

We offer some of the widest, deepest fitting footwear available, designed to reduce the pains of swollen feet, with many styles available in 6E, 6V or 8E fittings. We are not aware of any other main stream manufacturer making any shoes in a fitting as wide and deep as our 8E fitting.
