I have got a lovely older neighbour who helps me a lot. A couple of years ago she injured her foot, and now needs wide fitting shoes, she is size 5.
She recently tried on the Lotus Arielle sandal and loved it, but it was just a bit too tight and she got really upset as she thought they looked very glam on her. Does anyone know where I can find a similar sandal in a wide fit? I have now looked for two days and can't come close. I was going to try and buy her some for her birthday in August.
Pic attached.

Is this the challenge that defeated S&B?!

They're virtually identical to a Gabor sandal, which usually are wide fit.

Will find a link...

Any of those work? First pair probs closest to what you linked, but all quite glam, as far as a wide sandal can be (wear wide sandals myself so feel the pain)

Thanks for trying, but they have to be slip ins and ideally a metallic colour... she is a very glam 68 yo smile

I use this firm for MIL's shoes and cannot fault their service. Initial postage and packing for 3 pairs of shoes is £5 but you can send them back and exchange for free ( very fussy MIL ! )
