Well, would you believe that, according to the University Hospitals of Leicester, 24,000 over-65s in the UK fall over at home every year because of poorly fitting footwear? Men's shoes are made for men's feet and shoes that are too long result in loss of control and increase the likelihood of catching on an edge, lip or step.
In finding DB Wider Fit Shoes, our customers have been able to find shoes that offer the required width in their shoe size - making them far safer, especially around stairs, kerbs and even bumps on the pavement. And those who were buying men's shoes to get the width are able to choose from a huge range of feminine styles of all types, ensuring they can remain confident to get out of the house and keep active.
There are styles across our range that are suitable to all, including wide and extra-wide fitting everyday shoes, built for comfort and all-day wear, trainers with grippy soles and either lace-up or strap fastenings for a secure fit to suit your hand motility, and sandals with adjustable back straps and even full backs – for a secure fit to reduce trip hazards.
Our Everyday Shoes range features many of our best-selling shoes because they're – as people keep telling us – "the comfiest shoes you’ll ever wear"!
Designed for comfort and packed with features they’re a real treat for your feet.
