Characteristics of the Alexis from Podowell
This orthopedic slipper for women and men is available in blue color and in sizes 3,5 UK - 5W US to 13 UK - 13,5M US.
This slipper can accommodate feet with oedema or bulky dressings thanks to its large foot volume on the forefoot.
One of the main quality of this shoe is its lightness. It will allow you to walk for a long time without feeling any fatigue.
These orthopedic slippers 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.
There is a very large opening allowing easy entry. This type of opening is particularly suitable for painful or poorly mobile feet.
The front is made of stretchy materials. The volume is therefore variable and evolutionary, which allows to adapt to a foot that would tend to swell during the day.
The closure with a wide Velcro allows for optimal tightening adjustment even for those with a strong instep. This type of closure also allows for easy donning and optimal fit.
A light, flexible counter-back provides support for the rear foot without too much pressure on the heel.
- Resistant and easily washable textile upper. This type of fabric keeps the feet warm.
- Synthetic textile lining for a breathable and lightweight shoe.
The lining is treated with Sanitized antimicrobial from Podowell. This type of treatment reduces the growth of yeasts, fungi and other bacteria on a long-term basis. It is a long-lasting protection that considerably reduces hygiene problems and bad odours.
There are no protruding internal seams, which prevents conflicts between the foot and the shoe and thus friction and irritation.
The comfort insole is made of microfiber on cushioning foam. It is perforated for optimal air circulation and rapid moisture wicking.
The insoles are removable and can be removed and replaced with orthopedic insoles.
Walk in complete tranquility with this outsole made of polyurethane. A very light, shock-absorbing, non-slip and flexible material.
The outsole is designed to allow for better stability when walking with its greater nesting width.
Water does not penetrate the shoe thanks to the welded assembly of the upper and the outer sole of the shoe.
The heel height is 15 mm.
