Characteristics of the Alban from Podowell
This orthopaedic sandal for women and men is available in black colour and in sizes 3,5 UK - 5 US to 11 UK - 11,5 US.
This sandal respects your bunion and avoids all the pain due to this pathology.
These orthopaedic sandals have maximum space to accommodate a very swollen, diabetic or recently operated foot. This corresponds to a K or M width. It can accommodate wide or very wide feet.
The total opening allows to put the foot in the shoe and to close it over it without having to bend the foot. This is very practical for feet that are not very mobile and painful or when wearing orthopaedic devices such as foot lifters.
There is a stretch material on the front to protect sensitive areas related to your pathology. This stretchy material adapts perfectly to toe deformities such as hallux valgus or hammertoes.
The closure is done with three Velcros. This type of closure makes it possible to put on the shoes easily and faster than with a lace-up shoe and also easily adjust the footwear volume.
For better stability, the counter-back supports the rear foot.
The quilted collar at the top of the upper provides comfortable support even with a swollen ankle.
- Leather used in manufacturing to obtain a flexible and durable product.
- To protect and not attack your hallux valgus, there is a stretch yoke, a stretchy fabric that adapts to deformations and therefore reduces friction and related pain.
- The Onsteam® "High-tech" lining helps keep feet dry in all weathers thanks to maximum absorption and elimination of perspiration and a thermoregulation effect. It is an anti-microbial and antibacterial, anti-odour and hypoallergenic treated lining.
Textiles are particularly sensitive to hygiene problems (bad odours due to sweat or mould). The Sanitized antimicrobial durably prevents the growth of bacteria, yeasts and fungi and therefore protects the shoe in a safe and lasting way.
There are no protruding internal seams, which prevents conflicts between the foot and the shoe and thus friction and irritation.
The sole is perforated to evacuate moisture and allow good air circulation. It is made of microfiber on cushioning foam which makes it very comfortable.
The insoles are removable and can be removed and replaced with orthopaedic insoles.
Walk in complete tranquillity with this outsole made of polyurethane. A very light, shock-absorbing, non-slip and flexible material.
The wide casing allows better stability when walking.
The stitching all around the sole allows a better resistance over time.
The heel height is 15 mm.
