WHAT IS LYMPHEDEMA?
Lymphedema is a chronic medical condition that can develop when there is damage or disruption in the lymphatic system. Fluid drains into the soft tissues, which causes swelling. This can happen anywhere in the body, but most commonly in the arms and legs.
Lymphedema can range from mild, with minor swelling and discomfort to extensive swelling and skin changes.
Treatment includes treating the swelling with exercise, compression stockings and pumps. Shoes should also be wide enough and comfortable to accommodate any swelling.
Things to Remember When Buying Footwear
Choosing the right shoes for your foot condition will help you be more comfortable when you are walking. Here are some things to consider when purchasing a pair of shoes.
1. Use a tracing device when measuring your shoe size
2. Choose a wider, rather than longer size
3. Shoes should be made with an adjustable material
4. Consider the weight of the shoes.
5. Your feet should feel comfortable with the shoes on
6. Choose comfort and functionality over aesthetics
7. Choose a compact design to prevent tripping or slipping
8. Shoes must fit properly even with an orthopedic insert
9. Shoes should be durable for lasting wear
10. After sales support availability

What are good shoes for swollen feet? Edema? Lymphedema?
One of the common questions that we are often asked is…what is the best type of shoe for swollen feet? Typically, feet tend to swell more as the day progresses so it is essential that the shoes have adjustability. Laces can be adjusted, however most people don’t want the hassle of tying and re-trying shoes several times a day. By far the easiest option is to purchase shoes with adjustable touch closure straps, typically referred to as Velcro straps.
