Can Blandydoes really fit my feet and legs?
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%.
Most sock and hosiery customers are successful first time. One thing we do know is that no one else knows more about Extra Roomy products than us and no one will try harder or more patiently to help.Top of page
Do I need to take care if I have diabetes?
Yes. We are aware of the problems that people with diabetes may have and so we offer footwear and socks with minimal seaming. However, not all our products may be suitable for your feet, so you need to make your own judgement or ask a medical advisor. Please run your fingers inside any item before wearing, checking for anything that may harm. After buying new footwear, wear it for 30 minutes to 1 hour at first, then inspect your feet for pressure marks or irritation. A hand mirror is useful so you can examine your whole foot. Gradually build up the wearing time.Top of page

What fitting is Blandydoes footwear?
All Blandydoes footwear is extra roomy which means it’s very wide and very deep in comparison to regular footwear.
We offer a single width fitting – 3H for men and 6E fitting for women – but don’t worry if you don’t know what width your feet are because 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, Blandydoes shoes also benefit from extra depth which means they’re particularly good at fitting problem toes and bunions or feet that are very swollen.
As Blandydoes is so roomy, there is no need to order a larger shoe size than normal just to get the extra width and depth that you need.
For further information, we recommend reading our footwear 'Buying Guides'.

If you have very wide, swollen or bandaged feet or simply find footwear on the high street is too restrictive then we recommend giving Blandydoes a try.

Remember, all Blandydoes footwear is covered by our No Quibble Money Back Guarantee returns policy. This means you can order in complete confidence, knowing that you can return any of our products for a refund or exchange if it’s unsuitable.Top of page
Choosing the right footwear
Blandydoes footwear is so wide, deep and roomy you can order your usual shoe size. If you normally take a half size and we don’t offer a half size in the style you want, we suggest you order the smaller size.
Handy hints for style selection:
Lace up styles give the most secure fit and allow plenty of support and adjustment.
Touch-fastening styles are very adjustable and are ideal if you have difficulty tying laces.
Slip-on styles are very roomy but offer little adjustment.
Which sole type should I choose?
If you need a very lightweight shoe, we recommend choosing a style with an extra-light sole. These soles are made from very lightweight, durable PU which is also flexible, shock-absorbing and offers good grip. Look out for footwear which has this symbol in the product features:
Can you adapt Blandydoes footwear?
Bolton Brothers provide orthotic services including sole alterations to allow for leg length discrepancies or other sole/orthotic changes to improve balance and gait. They can add sockets and T straps for users of callipers. This can be done on any of our styles. Customers can send footwear privately with prescription requirements provided by their doctor, orthotists or other health professional.Top of page
You don’t do half sizes in the style I want, should I go up or down a size?
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.Top of page
Will Blandydoes footwear fit very swollen feet?
Blandydoes footwear is designed for very wide or swollen feet. We can also supply strap extensions to make the straps longer on the majority of our touch-fastening shoes, sandals and slippers. This will give more room for swollen or bandaged feet. You’ll find a link to the strap extensions for a particular style on the product page.Top of page
