Finding shoes and boots to support a long term condition, injury or disability can be incredibly difficult.  Physically visiting a shop is often tricky, let alone mastering the art of whipping off your shoes and socks in an elegant or timely fashion whilst using crutches or a walking stick!

Thanks to our lovely followers on Instagram, we have been able to round up the best shoes and boots available to buy online, recommended by YOU to keep you comfy, warm and protected from the sometimes hair raising performance getting them on and off.
