Customer request: Narrow heels and bunions

25 Jul 2016 12:07:20

I have narrow heels and a bunion. Which styles would you recommend?

Customer request: I have narrow heels and a bunion. Which styles would you recommend?

Liz, Cosyfeet Shop Manager & Fitting Expert says:

It’s not uncommon to have a combination foot where it is narrow at the back but wide across the forefront. There are a number of styles that I would recommend. For ladies, I would suggest trying Belle. The soft, padded collar of this trainer-style shoe fits both swollen and slimmer ankles and the deep lace offers lots of adjustment across the top of the foot. Other styles that I would recommend are Paradise, Sienna and Adele.

BelleBelle is a useful style if you have narrow heels & a bunion

For men, I would recommend Buddy, which is the male equivalent of Belle. You could also try Max, which has an adjustable lace or Gregory which benefits from a stretchy front that is ideal for fitting swelling and bunions.

Keeping cool in the heat

21 Jul 2016 11:05:06

It’s great that we’re enjoying some lovely weather at last, but it’s also important that we look after ourselves in the heat.

It’s wonderful to have some sunny weather for a change but when the temperature starts to climb, there can be some unpleasant side effects from the heat.

What are the risks of hot weather?

In a severe heat wave you may get dehydrated and your body may overheat, leading to heat exhaustion or heatstroke. Both need urgent treatment. The symptoms of heat exhaustion include headaches, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, muscle weakness or cramps, pale skin, and a high temperature. You should move somewhere cool and drink plenty of water or fruit juice. If you can, take a lukewarm shower, or sponge yourself down with cold water.

Heatstroke can develop if heat exhaustion is left untreated, but it can also occur suddenly and without warning. Symptoms include headaches, nausea, an intense thirst, sleepiness, hot, red and dry skin, a sudden rise in temperature, confusion, aggression, convulsions and loss of consciousness. Heatstroke can result in irreversible damage to your body, including the brain, or death.

Here are our top tips for staying safe when it’s hot:

  • Stay inside during the hottest time of the day (11am – 3pm)
  • Close the curtains in rooms that get a lot of sun
  • Keep windows closed while the room is cooler than it is outside. Open them when the temperature inside rises, and at night for ventilation. If you are worried about security, at least open windows on the first floor and above
  • Use sunscreen lotion of factor 15 or above when you’re out and about
  • When travelling always carry a bottle of water
  • Limit activities like housework and gardening to cooler times of the day
  • Wear lose, light weight, cotton clothing
  • Drink lots of fluids and eat more cold foods such as salad and fruit, which contain water
  • Take cool showers or baths, and splash yourself several times a day with cold water, particularly your face and the back of your neck

What else can you do to stay cool?

Keep an eye on the weather reports, which will let you know if a heat wave is on its way. Also if you have breathing problems or a heart condition, your symptoms might get worse when it’s very hot, so it may be a good idea to contact your GP for advice.

Tips to relieve the problem of swollen feet & legs

15 Jul 2016 08:55:21

Swollen feet and legs are a common problem, especially as we get older. There are a number of simple things we can do to help prevent or relieve swelling.

Swollen feet and legs are a common problem, especially as we get older. There are a number of simple things we can do to help prevent or relieve swelling.

Eat less salt

Salt helps to retain water and eating too much can cause swollen ankles. Try to cut back on how much salt you eat. Don't add it to your food or switch to a low-sodium option. Also keep an eye on how much you're consuming in processed foods, like ready meals and soups. Health experts recommend eating no more than 6g of salt a day.

Drink enough water

When your feet and ankles are puffy it sounds counter-intuitive to increase your fluid intake but drinking more water will help your body to mobilise fluids and reduce swelling. Thirst is a sign that you are already dehydrated, so try to sip water throughout the day.

Try not to sit still for too long

It's not just sitting on an aeroplane for hours that can cause swollen legs and ankles. Sitting on a long car, bus or train journey, or just staying in your armchair can have the same effect. Not moving for long periods of time causes fluid to pool in the legs, so get up and move around at regular intervals. Be sure to break up long car journeys with rest stops and have a walk around, and stretch and walk on a plane whenever the seatbelt signs is switched off. Using a pedal exerciser is a simple way to stimulate your circulation and can help to prevent swelling in your feet and ankles.

Don’t get too hot

You are more likely to suffer with puffy ankles and feet on a hot day. That's because your blood vessels dilate allowing more blood to go to the surface of your skin in order to cool down. A consequence of this is that you're more likely to get swollen feet. Stay out of the heat if you can, use a fan in the home, take a cool shower or put your feet in a bowl of cool water.

Consult your GP

If you're concerned about long-term or painful swelling in your legs, see your GP. Oedema (swelling) can be a symptom of an underlying health problem or caused by certain medications, such as corticosteroids or medicine for high blood pressure. Swelling can be a sign of more serious illnesses, including kidney disease, heart failure, chronic lung disease, thyroid and liver disease. Swelling in the legs can also be caused by a blood clot, severe varicose veins or a leg injury or leg surgery. There's also a condition known as lymphoedema, where a blockage in the lymphatic drainage system causes the legs to swell. This long-term condition can cause discomfort, pain and a loss of mobility.

Reviews you can trust

5 Jul 2016 14:13:02

According to a recent report, up to 25% of online reviews are fake. That’s why organisations are turning to specialist review sites such as Feefo to collect feedback from reviewers who can be verified as genuine customers.

According to a recent report, up to 25% of online reviews are fake. That’s why organisations are turning to specialist review sites such as Feefo to collect feedback from reviewers who can be verified as genuine customers.

At Feefo, there is no room for fake reviews because it operates by invitation only. This means that only customers who have made a purchase from a retailer are invited to leave a review. This ensures that all reviews are genuine and provides authenticity that other review companies are unable to guarantee.

It’s a simple process whereby the customer is asked to rate the supplier both for service and product, along with additional comments, such as whether the product exceeded expectation and why. Each review can be matched with a transaction, ruling out the threat of any fake reviews.

Cosyfeet uses Feefo and to date has received over 12,500 reviews. It currently has a service rating of 98% and a product rating of 95%.
