Foot health - It’s what we do!
Since I came into our family business in 2009 I have diversified away from predominantly standard fitting footwear with a small selection of wider fittings. Now, we are a leading specialist in the north west when it comes to wider fitting footwear.
We keep in stock width fittings from the standard fitting of D up to maximum of 8E in ladies and gents’ shoes from either E – H or EE - 8E, dependent on the manufacturer.
Our feet are one of the hardest working parts of our body and we walk thousands of miles in our lifetime.
All the downwards force from our body, as we walk, run and stand, is exerted through our feet. So, if our feet aren’t comfortable it can limit our day to day activities severely.
Specialists in measuring & fitting
We specialise in the measuring and fitting of a variety of wide fitting shoes, and accommodating all kinds of medically related foot issues. This includes but is not limited to excessive swelling, arthritic pain, hammer toes, bunions, plantar fasciitis, naturally wide feet and the fitting of orthotic bio-mechanic insoles into supportive footwear.
Although most of these foot conditions are only curable only by extensive surgery and/ or medication, we aim to make the foot as comfortable as possible. We manage this by supplying you with a quality, correct fitting pair of shoes.
A common misconception is that, in order to increase the width of a shoe, you must increase the length, this is not only wrong but you can severely damage your feet by doing this.
However, we do understand that there are many people who see no other choice than to buy bigger sized shoe as there seems to be no other option left for them. It is often thought as a “quick fix” to buy longer shoes to gain increased width, rather than keeping your correct length and simply increasing the width of the shoe.
By offering a variation of width fittings within the same styles, means that the customer is not limited to just a small selection of shoes that might accommodate their foot size and width. It means that we are able to offer a large selection of styles to suit customers with both smaller narrower feet, and the same styles to those with longer wider feet.
