The Stretch Walker Double Touch Closure in Black is an extra depth athletic walking shoe that can accommodate bracing and ankle foot orthoses (AFO’s) as well as big, swollen feet or feet suffering from edema.
The shoe has been coded for coverage under Medicare's Therapeutic Shoes for Diabetics.
The double touch version of the shoe offers a quick and easy way to place the foot inside the shoe. Often this design is chosen when the shoe is fitted with an orthotic or a bracing device. This type of closure is also preferred by people with arthritis and people with difficulty reaching their feet to get there shoes on and off.
This shoe was designed with a wide mid foot to create enhanced medial and lateral stability. As people age muscle strength in the leg supporting the knee and ankle can diminish. This can lead to difficulties in maintaining balance and “postural sway” which can in turn lead to a fall. The right “balance” footwear often fitted in conjunction with a balance foot device, can help reduce the risk of fall and is considered a key component of fall prevention. Seek professional guidance from your local Podiatrist to assess the risk of fall and the need for a footwear fall prevention strategy.
Three layers of insoles offer extra depth providing a solution for leg length discrepancy where one leg is longer than the other which can help bring the hip and the lower back into alignment.

Unfortunately I had to return these sneakers, they were not wide enough. Question? I had a coupon I used to purchased these, Is the cupon still valid being I had to return them? I would like to purchase a different, wider pair of shoes.

I'm wearing my second pair, having enjoyed the first pair so much.
They are comfy in a great color for summer wear. My orthotics fit like a dream and walking 45 minutes is a breeze! Love the washability!

I have severe foot issues including hammertoe, and these shoes are wonderful. The top expands to make room for my toe issue and there is plenty of room in the toe box area. The only issue has been with the velcro used, it frays quite quickly. I have had a cobbler add quality velcroand that helps.

This is my second pair of these identical shoes. The first pair worked so well that I wanted to replace them with an identical pair. The second pair fit just like the first ones and I an happy to have them.

Shoe Size: Felt true to size
Shoe Width: Felt true to width
I bought these for my father who has problems with swelling feet, arthritis, and walking, he had shoes that he would try to stuff his feet in and had them as loose as possible and backs broke down and would fall a lot, the first day he walked in the hallway for about 10 min and said they feel good, great shoes for him, I couldn't be happier!!!
Wears this shoe: Everywhere
