Re: Where can I find REALLY wide shoes?

I was looking for wide size dress shoes/boots and I found this Swiss Brand. They provide online customization and wide EE and EEE.

Re: Where can I find REALLY wide shoes?

I have a bunion on my left foot (hereditary, got it from my mum) and have had shoe problems for years. When I find something comfy that looks nice I buy pairs in different colours. Unfortunately I end up having a right shoe that looks perfect and a left shoe that's mangled so I've decided to bite the bullet and find out about having the op to straighten my big toe out.

I have heard that it comes back but I guess you must have done enough research.

I found this EF thread about hallux operation, it could be worth looking at it: https://www.englishforum.ch/family-m...operation.html

My bunion has not grown back. I think it somewhat depends on what they have to do in the operation and the skill of the surgeon, as well as how the patient behaves post-op and long-term. I saw an orthopedic surgeon in CH last year. He removed the screw that was still there after all this time, as it was bothering me. He was super impressed that the bunion had not grown back after all this time and said the surgeon did an excellent job.

But as I said on the other thread, it's no picnic to do the recovery. I recommend trying non-surgical options if one can.

Re: Where can I find REALLY wide shoes?

I did a lot of research and the type of bunion I have is caused by a displaced bone to the middle part of the foot which causes the big toe to be unstable and "drift" at an awkward inward angle. It can often affect my balance and I've tripped and fallen in the street quite a few times. Last time was in Basel city centre

My sister had a different type, hers was like a bone spur and she went private back in Scotland to get it removed 2 years ago, it was shaved off and her toe was wired. It cost her 3.5k to have it done in a BUPA hospital in Edinburgh, but the surgeon sent her for the x-rays on the NHS. She's never looked back and is looking to get the other foot done once we get out of this covid situation.
