Wide-fit shoes

I've found Wider Fit Shoes, which supply women’s widths from EE–8E, and men’s EE–6E. The linings I have in the 4E shoes are most comfortable.
Margaret Cobb, Carnforth, Lancashire

I've found a company called The Shoe Tailor, who have a great selection of stylish shoes with widths from D–EEEE and sizes 4–12. D is the normal width of shoes that are sold in high-street shoe shops. Having arthritis in my feet, I now buy all my shoes from this company and am very satisfied with my purchases.
