This section of Living made easy lists a range of non-standard footwear for a variety of purposes.
Included is rehabilitation footwear, orthopedic footwear, specialised comfort footwear and footwear with non-standard sizing. Also included are footwarmers and washable footwear.
If you have a need for specialist footwear, we recommend you seek advice from a registered podiatrist or chiropodist. They will be able to advise on the correct type of footwear and support for you, and can also give you advice on how to care for your feet.1
You may be eligible to have footwear prescribed on the NHS if you have a medical condition requiring specialist footwear. You need to have a referral from your general practitioner, consultant or Allied Health Professional for this service.2 Read our advice on choosing suitable footwear for further information.
