Propet PedWalker 3 Oxford Shoes Review
If you are looking for some comfortable but smart looking orthopedic shoes, these are a great choice. The PedWalker 3 is an diabetic shoe that features a comfortable, stretch upper with adjustable hook and loop fasteners, and a robust but flexible sole.
These shoes are ideal for diabetics and for older people who suffer from issues with swollen feet. They look quite smart, and could be used as ‘everyday’ shoes for those who need the extra comfort but still like to keep up a stylish appearance. These shoes are available in men’s and women’s sizes, with a range of width options. The shoe tends to run true to size, and the hook and loop closure allows the wearer to adjust the tightness of the fit as required.
Designed With Comfort in Mind
These shoes are quite wide fitting and are designed to allow you to add custom orthotics on top of the insole that comes with them. The soles are quite hard and while they do have some grip on them, they are not designed to give lots of traction. This means you will need to take care when walking on smoother surfaces, such as laminate flooring or vinyl.
Propet markets these shoes as occasional walkers for those who have limited mobility, not as a shoe for someone who tends to enjoy going on long walks. There are other models of Propet shoe that would fill that role, such as the Cronus sneaker.
The top of the shoe is very soft and stretchy, and the hook and loop strap allows the wearer to adjust the shoe for comfort. This is important for diabetics who are concerned about a tighter-fitting shoe aggravating any circulation problems. The insoles are replaceable, and you should do so regularly to ensure maximum comfort. While these are marketed as a diabetic shoe they could be a good choice for people with arthritis and even those who simply struggle with more traditional fasteners and harder shoes. They are a comfortable product that offers good support without being too tight.
Finding an orthopedic shoe that looks and feels good can be tricky. The Propet PedWalker 3 Oxford line of shoes fills this role well for those who are looking for a comfortable product for occasional wear.
