Women’s Fabric Shoes Buying Guide

This buying guide has been designed to help you choose the style of shoe that’s right for you. Please click here to view our Women's Fabric Shoes range.

Our fabric shoes are very soft and accommodating so they are ideal for the most sensitive of feet. They offer the bedroom comfort of a slipper but with the hardwearing soles and support of a shoe. The soles are made from flexible rubber, so they can be worn indoors and out, making them a very versatile choice of footwear.

Cosyfeet fabric shoes are designed for feet that can't fit into ordinary footwear. They are extra wide and extra deep so they’re very roomy.

All our women’s styles are made with an extra wide fitting of approximately 6E. But don’t worry if you don’t know your width size as many of our styles are adjustable. This means they’re flexible enough to fit feet that swell up during the day or if one foot is more swollen than the other.

Unlike many other brands of wide fitting footwear, Cosyfeet shoes also benefit from extra depth which means they’re particularly good at fitting problem toes and bunions or feet that are very swollen.

To put it simply, all of our shoes have been designed to be roomy enough to comfortably fit a variety of foot problems and conditions. Some styles are more suitable for specific conditions than others - please see suitability for foot condition below or ring our customer advice line on 1 833 852 1466 if you’d like more help.

We understand that new customers are sometimes concerned about getting the perfect fit using mail order. However, most customers find that if they order their normal shoe size (that’s the size they would have ordered before they experienced problems with their feet), a Cosyfeet shoe will provide the extra room and comfort they’re looking for.

If you normally take a half size and we don’t offer a half size in the style you want, we would suggest that you order the smaller full size.

The majority of our fabric shoes are adjustable so whichever style you decide to buy, it’s likely you’ll be much more comfortable than with a standard shoe.

Our shoes are made using a number of different lasts which vary in profile and as a result, some styles will be more suitable for some foot shapes than others so if you try a style and it isn’t quite right don’t give up and contact us for advice.

If you find your swelling gets worse during the day, it might be worth choosing a style that has easily adjustable touch-fastening.

Of course there is no absolute guarantee but about 80% of our footwear customers find success first time - and if you count those customers who send goods back to swap for another style or size, that rises to 90%. If for any reason you’re not 100% satisfied with your choice, you can exchange for another size or style - or we’ll give you an immediate refund. It’s as simple as that.

All of our Fabric Shoes fasten either with laces or touch-fastening.

Lace-up Touch-fastening

Give the most secure fit with plenty of support and adjustment. These include:

Offer the most scope for adjustment and are ideal if tying laces is a problem.

Strap Extensions are available if your feet are exceptionally swollen. They lengthen the strap giving you more fitting flexibility.

These include:

Shaped Insoles and Orthotics Adaptations

If you need to wear shaped insoles or orthotics we advise that you look for styles that are especially deep or have removable insoles.
These include:

We do not recommend Fabric Shoes if you need to have your shoes built up or adapted in any way due to the construction of the soling unit.

All of our footwear has been designed to be wide, deep and roomy enough to comfortably fit even the most challenging of conditions. However, there are some styles that are more suitable for specific conditions than others:

Arthritis Bunions Swollen feet and Ankles Problem Toes

If you have arthritis, and your movement is impaired, we'd recommend a style with a touch-fastening as they're the easiest to put on, take off and adjust. These include:

Many people suffer from the pain of bunions which can be made worse by trying to fit into standard footwear. Cosyfeet products are made from soft materials and some have especially wide, deep toe boxes to accommodate bunions.

We would also recommend the following fabric shoes as their side panels are seam-free:

All Cosyfeet footwear is Extra Roomy and has been designed to fit swollen feet so whichever style you decide to buy, you'll be much more comfortable than with a standard shoe.

If swelling gets worse during the day, choose a style that has easily adjustable straps such as:

Don’t forget our range of extra roomy socks and extra roomy hosiery which has been specially developed to give a more generous and comfortable fit.

We would recommend a style with a deep toe box or a seam free toe area.
These include:

Don't forget our range of socks for sensitive feet.
