A must-buy this summer are wide fitting sandals if you want to keep swollen feet cool and comfy. There are lots of styles available in a variety of materials.

Canvas or fabric sandals are great for taking on holiday as they tend to be lightweight so they’re ideal for packing in your suitcase. They’re also good for wearing around the house and can double up as a cooler pair of slippers.

Stretchy sandals made from lycra or elastane are ideal for swollen or misshapen feet as they mould to your foot shape. They won’t put pressure on swelling or painful joints and offer a ‘made to measure’ feel. If you’re very active, you could try a pair of sandals lined with neoprene. This stretchy material is very soft and adjusts to the contours of a swollen foot to give a comfortable fit that lasts all day.

If you’re after a dressier look we recommend going for a leather sandal. For an eye-catching look why not try a metallic or patent-leather style.
