Characteristics of the Alfred from Podowell
This orthopedic sandal for women and men is available in black color and in sizes 3,5 UK - 5W US to 11 UK - 11,5M US.
This sandal with a special place for your bunions to relieve the pain due to hallux valgus.
These orthopedic 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 orthopedic devices such as foot lifters.
The volume at the forefoot is variable thanks to the stretchy materials. This allows to give the necessary ease to a tired foot that takes volume at the end of the day.
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 with 3 Velcros allows an optimal adjustment of the tightening even for people with a strong instep. This type of closure also allows easy donning and optimal support.
The stability of the hindfoot is ensured by a good holding buttress at the back of the shoe. This is ideal for unstable feet.
To avoid injuring and attacking the sensitive ankles, there is a small foam pad at the top of the shoe.
- Synthetic textile. This type of textile allows for a very light and flexible shoe that will not attack your sensitive feet.
- 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 synthetic textile lining used in the manufacture of the shoe allows to obtain a breathable and extremely light shoe.
Textiles are particularly sensitive to hygiene problems (bad odors due to sweat or mold). 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.
Hygiene is irreproachable with this insole which can be machined washed at 30 °C. Moreover, it is very comfortable thanks to its memory foam.
The shoes are adapted to orthopedic insoles thanks to the removable insoles that you can easily remove.
The outer sole is made of polyurethane. You can walk in complete safety with this ultra-light, flexible, shock-absorbing and non-slip sole.
The wide casing allows better stability when walking.
The assembly of the outsole and the upper of the shoe is made by welding which gives a better resistance to water penetration.
The heel height is 22 mm.
