Lies van der Roest (63)

‘Orthopaedic shoes used to look big and bulky, but now I have modern-looking ones with zippers on either side and fake laces.’

They literally help me move around more freely

‘My legs hurt because of my rheumatism,’ says Lies van der Roest from Schiedam, the Netherlands. ‘I also have large bumps on my feet, so regular shoes don’t fit me anymore. With my orthopaedic Looxz shoes, I feel less pain and can walk more steadily. They literally help me move around more freely. Thanks to Penders Voetzorg who took my measurements, my shoes are the perfect fit. And if they do give me any problems, I can always go back and they’ll help me right away.’

Different colours

‘I also really like the design. This morning I was at the hospital and someone complimented me on my beautiful shoes. They look more modern by the day. Orthopaedic shoes always used to look big and bulky , but now I have modern-looking one with zippers on either side and fake laces. Nowadays you can also choose from different colours. I picked a pair of light blue shoes that go with jeans. I’m extremely happy with my shoes and would recommend them to anyone, including my sister, who also has a pair!’
