Pandere Offers Adjustable Shoes for Swollen Feet for a Variety of Health Conditions

Pandere shoes for lymphedema

Really glad Pandere is making shoes. I've had lymphedema for the past 10 years, and during all that time I've only had one old pair of shoes from the before times that would fit on my feet. Every time I tried on new shoes they just wouldn't go on over the swelling. Well, Pandere has changed that! I finally have shoes again! Best part is that they are nice looking. They don't look like medical shoes. They are comfortable and with all the laces I can tighten them to keep the swelling in my feet in check. Thank you so much for creating this product! – Landon H.

I have searched for2 years for a sandal that laces up. My feet are more swollen in the morning than the evening, so far these are fabulous! With severe lymphedema it is hard to find something that works and is stylish. THANK YOU! – Kelly L.


Lymphedema is a medical condition often caused by a damaged lymphatic system as a result of medical treatment or trauma. Lymphedema causes foot swelling and swelling in other parts of the body that usually develops gradually over time. As the foot and ankle’s circumference grow - sometimes at different rates in the right and left foot – it can be a real challenge to find shoes that fit. The answer is adjustable shoes for lymphedema. Our customers with lymphedema come back to shop with us time and again because of the unique expansion capabilities in our shoes.

Pandere shoes for postoperative swelling

These are the only shoes I wear. After ankle surgery they are what worked. I couldn't believe it when they came out with sneakers. I love them!! – Karen R.

These are my 4th pair of Pandere shoes. My physical therapist recommended them and my feet feel good all day. – Janice S.

It is normal for the foot to swell after foot surgery but once the worst of the swelling decreases after four weeks or so, patients are sometimes surprised to find that their feet have not yet returned to their pre-surgery size as they continue to deal with swelling – sometimes for an additional three to 12 plus months. Our expandable shoes designed especially for swollen feet provide a bridge between post-operative shoes and the day your feet have fully recovered from surgery and you can fit into your old shoes again.

Pandere shoes for bunions

After going through the fitting process, the shoes that were suggested were the 'Two-step" style. They fit well-immediately! I have been wearing them around the house for a couple of weeks just to be sure of the comfort but they seem to be just right. All areas feel good, width, heel, instep, bunions, and they seem to be well made and durable, all good. The footbed is padded for a comfortable fit. – Ilene L.

Having a wide foot as well as bunions makes shoe buying very difficult. Just got these shoes …they aren't aggravating my bunions at all. There is enough room in the toe box for my wide foot plus the material allows my bunions to spread with no discomfort. I know comfort should be the number one priority but I love that these shoes look stylish and are constructed in a way that allows my feet the room they need without making them look horrible. – Robun C.

A bunion is a bony bump that protrudes from the joint at the base of the big toe. Bunions are formed when some of the bones in the front part of the foot move out of place, causing the tip of the big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forcing the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out. Bunions can be very painful when feet are squished into shoes that don’t accommodate the bump. Pandere shoes are ideal for people with bunions because they have an expandable toe box that makes room for the bunion.

Pandere shoes for peripheral neuropathy / diabetes

I bought these for my 85-year-old mother who is very fashionable. She has neuropathy in her legs and feet and they swell. She needs shoes with velcro and she likes a small heel. She loved the look of them [The Traveler Sandal] and even got a compliment that day! She has been wearing them every day since and says they are so comfortable! – Lisa K.


Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that causes loss of muscle tone in the hands and feet, stabbing, burning, or tingling pain when walking, unsteadiness, and swollen feet. One of the most common causes is diabetes. Pandere shoes are ideal for people living with peripheral neuropathy and diabetes because they provide comfortable support and expansion capabilities to make walking less painful.

Pandere shoes for edema

I ordered the Barista for my swollen feet and it has certainly done what I needed. I have been suffering with edema in my left leg and foot for several months and, at times, have been unable to find any shoes I could wear. I ordered Pandere shoes hoping I had found the solution to my problem. These shoes were the answer to my prayers. They are adjustable to whatever state my feet are in so they fit both my left and right feet no matter what is happening. If you have edema do yourself a favor and buy a pair of these shoes. You will be very happy you did! – Sharon J.

Edema is a type of swelling that occurs when excess fluid gets trapped in the body's tissues, most often caused by congestive heart failure or a blockage in a leg vein. Pandere shoes are ideal for people dealing with edema because they come in wide and extra wide styles that can expand as needed to accommodate sensitive, swollen feet.

If you are dealing with any type of health condition or healing from a surgery that is causing your feet to swell, Pandere shoes are here for you! We want to help you find the comfortable and flattering shoes you’ve been dreaming of.

How Do I Know What Size to Buy?

If you’re ready to stop suffering in uncomfortable shoes, you may be wondering how to choose the right size when ordering from our online shoe store. At Pandere shoes we love sizing our customers! In addition to a detailed sizing chart by shoe style on the Find Your Size page, we offer two novel sizing help options: Let Us Size You or Size Yourself (with our sizing instructions). Please use our chat feature on the bottom right of your screen if you want sizing help.

Either way, we have some secret sauce built into helping you get the right size. We have added a third measurement to the sizing process. While every other company looks at only length and width, we also consider instep circumference measurements when sizing customers. This is because we know that if you have swelling or bunions or wear a brace; length and width alone will not be enough to get an accurate foot size. Circumferences is the third dimension that tells us how much swelling you have, which is critical for a good fit.

Visit our Find Your Size page for instructions on how to take your measurements. When you’re ready, go to our Find Your Size page to input your measurements into the Size Finder tool. Email us at hello@pandereshoes if you have any problems or questions!

Once we receive your measurements, we will analyze your data and make a custom recommendation on both size and style for your particular circumstances. We will email you within 24 hours of submitting the measurements. (Often less than 24 hours!) If you don’t see our size recommendations, be sure to check your spam folder…That’s almost always where it has ended up!

If you receive your shoes and they don’t fit quite right, we have an ah-mazing exchange policy. You’ll hardly have to wait for your exchange pair to arrive and exchanges are always free because we pay shipping in both directions on all exchanges in the US!
