Problem feet including swelling and neuropathy. It is hard to put on shoes, but these were as easy as it gets and feel so comforting and supportive on my feet.
Very comfortable & love being able to adjust. Although my heel does slide a bit.
Needed a shoe that would help both feet with two different problems. One with a DTV-that will eventually resolve- and a post surgical foot that will forever be imperfect. Both swell but for different. These shoes are exactly what I need right now. So adjustable and not ugly like so many other styles. Comfy all day. Thanks
Shoe fit fine and was comfortable to walk in but way too heavy. I would love it if it was much lighter. Seems like it weighs more than any shoe I have ever had. Wish you could get it lighter.
unfortunately I really liked the shoes, but have not been able to put them on because my feet and ankles are very swollen. I had to send them back.
It took back and forth to find the correct shoe for me and my lipo-lymphadema with all my bracing and garments. The process and the customer support I received was spectacular. So much better than any I have received recently online or in stores. Thank you Pandere for making this part of my illness a little less painful and much more comfortable
Love these shoes. Very comfortable, supportive and skid-free. Easy to put on and to tweak for the ideal fit. I'm very happy I decided to buy these.
I absolutely love my Barista shoes..i was having a awful time trying to find a shoe that would fit with my afo brace and these did the job...my brace fits very comfortably and extremely supportive..I am happy with my selection as the shoes are made with high quality material...thank you Pandere!
I am thrilled with this shoe...I was so tired of ugly shoes that fit poorly, due to the size required to allow for fit of my brace. Thank you Pandere for coming up with a solution at a reasonable price. I love my shoes and the ability to adjust them for proper fit. I will be reordering!
Fit during swelling of feet, and still looks appropriate for everyday wear
Returning because it was way too narrow for a wide foot.
The shoes are easy to put on and are expanding with my swollen feet and ankles. They are as comfortable as I can get with my condition. I will certainly buy another pair.
Finally, I can get rid of my nasty old, falling apart tennis shoes which have been discontinued! I can't tell you how many shoes I've tried and have not been able to find anything to fit over AFO's. The pair I just ordered (such fast delivery) from you fit over braces I have on both legs. I'm, figuratively, jumping up and down Such a great product! Will definitely order more. Keep up the great work!!! Thanks again
oh my god! The shoes were a total Hit! Mom was skeptical at first, but slipped them on and just smiled! She never took them off, and laughingly said, since she hadn't worn them outside--- she was thinking of wearing them to bed. When I inquired about the fit, she said they were perfect. Boy! I went out on a limb, but it was worth the risk.
I recently purchased this shoe, and wore it only two times since. They are very comfortable so far. I like the firm, adjustable flexible features. The cost is high end, but worth it. They made your feet look rich, & feel pampered.
I started out ordering the burgendy size 12 but found they were not wide enough, so I sent them back and got a size10 E in men's size. So far I am very pleased with them and I may order some more soon.
These shoes are so comfortable. There was no break in time. I slipped them on and immediately they felt like a comfortable pair of slippers. I will be purchasing another pair for me and one for my husband.
After not being able to wear any regular shoes for about four years because of excessive ankle and foot swelling, it is difficult to get used to a structured shoe. I've been wearing handicapped slippers. My feet are adapting slowly to the shoes. It is something that is coming along slowly. I drove over 50 miles trying to find a shoe store that supposedly had shoes that would fit. They didn't even have them in stock. I've ordered several pair from different companies on line and they have not worked out. These are the only shoes I have tried that I have been able to get my feet into. I'm sure that my feet will become accustomed to a structured shoe eventually. They are very well made and of excellent quality.
just isn't wide enough
I like the shoes very much for my moderately swollen feet. I do have a bit of slippage at the heal which might be easily solved if I had the option of buying a stronger cord for the back. Everyone is different. I am sad though that there are no winter boots for extra wide customers. If there were- I'd buy them today!!
Fits like a slipper. Unfortunately, too short. Needed to size up
My grandmother is in her 90s and has trouble with foot and leg swelling. It had become impossible to find a shoe she felt looked stylish while still providing comfort and support. I bought these hoping they would suit her and she absolutely loves them. They fit her foot no matter how swollen her feet happen to be that day. I highly recommend them.
Best shoe purchase I ever made for my Daughter! I was sceptical at first because we have tried so many other shoe companies that promise to stretch to fit her swollen feet that didn't. When we received her Barista style shoes in the mail they were a little large so we contacted customer service and they were just as awesome as the shoes. The exchange for a different size was smooth and efficient! My Daughter loves the shoes so much she ordered another pair in a different style . If you have trouble with swollen feet don't hesitate to order! We will definitely be ordering again.
The absolute most comfortable shoe I have ever worn
The shoes are okay. The color grey is nice, however, the shoe is short on my foot. It must run small and not true to size. I got a 10 which is normally my shoe size. You had no 10 1/2 and I believe a size 11 would be 2 big.
I just tried them on this morning and they felt absolutely great and comfortable. I haven't been able to wear a pair of shoes for any length of time because I have other issues going on with my feet also. I am hoping that these shoes will help with those issues too. One thing that I did like was the stretchable tongue inside the shoe. I also have bunions and a hammer toe that gives me problems but the tongue seemed to cushion the area where it gives me the most discomfort. Because the shoes are new I am sure they will fit better once I have worn them more. All in all I believe I will be coming back for another pair real soon.
Unfortunately I had to return the shoes( injured foot night before they arrived and was unable to try them on) So my stars are for their customer service. Once my foot heels l plan on Trying again.
I have a high instep, and these shoes are great for that. Love the soft stretchy tongue! I was having problems with my heel sliding around in my other shoes, which caused discomfort. The extra cord on these shoes took care of that problem for me! Very happy with them.
As you may recall, I sent you a message earlier telling you how much not only I love my Pandere shoes, but also my kitten SiNuan. She prefers the box and tissue though! I know you used her photo on Instagram recently.
Worth the wait despite a little glitch in getting right size. Everyone I came in contact with was super nice. The shoe is amazing. It looks great and not like a geriatric shoe. Thanks for designing such a comfy, well-made shoe.
I 'm so happy I bought these shoes, they are very comfortable and very stylish at the same time. I wear them to take walks and my feet feel wonderful. I highly recommend this company.
Great shoe. Fits like no shoe I have ever worn. Great response from company and expert advise in selecting a shoe that fits!
Some of the most comfortable shoes I've had. Love them!
Pandere Shoes – do you know how long I have waited to slip on a pair of shoes that fit? Well it has been too many years to count. These shoes are fantastic, no matter the measure of swelling in my feet, they always slip on and most importantly they are amazingly comfortable. I am grateful to the ladies Celia, Alya, and Laura who came up with the fashionable baristas you are a Godsend.
The shoes are very nice and comfortable.
I love the bands that tighten the shoes better than shoe laces. . .easier to take off as well. However, I have very narrow heels and the shoes do not tighten enough against the heel area :(
I had high hopes. The tongue is quite soft and flexible - an advantage in some ways - but the shoe is still difficult to get on. There's no way that I can get my foot in this shoe WITH my orthotic brace. I only have one good hand, so cannot tie shoes. The elastic lace system works fairly well - but I guess velcro shoes are my answer.
Love this shoe! After nearly a year of recovering from broken ankle surgery, this shoe is the answer to all my problems, including swelling and needing a wider toe box. Well made; I'm sure I'll be wearing them for years!
Sorry to be so late in response. I am completely in love with my new shoes. I am especially excited as I have Lymphedema and to get a shoe that will do as this one does, stretch, is hard to find. Thank you so much.
I love my new size 7 barista shoes. I will wait to wear them until after the "stay at home" mandate has been dropped. Meanwhile I will wear the barista shoes that I've had for over a year. They are so comfortable. I am enjoying them so much! Just wanted another color. Stay safe out there.
Nice shoes, well made, plenty wide.
I really loved the shoes to start with and have worn them a lot. But recently my left heel started sliding up and down no matter how much I tightened it or the thicken of my socks
This shoe is stylish and terribly comfortable. Would love to get them in slate when available.
I had a bunionectomy last May. And I got your shoes because of the one swollen foot. As it worked for that foot because I could adjust it. They were not as slip resistant as I need for working in a kitchen. They were comfortable but my feet were so cold. Would I recommend them absolutely especially for someone with swollen feet all the time.
Like the shoes but am on limited income so one pair is all I can get.
Great style for a shoe that is designed for comfort and health. Great fit. So very pleased!!
Comfortable! I have rheumatoid arthritis, gout and my feet are deformed. This is the first shoe that I found which is comfortable and looks good. It offers great support as well as cushioning. I love that the width is expandable on days when my feet and ankles are swollen. Thank you for an alternative to clunky ugly shoes!
I love my Barista Pandere shoes I have had these shoes for, I am guessing almost a year. I adore them. They are great as my walking shoe when I am exercising. Perfect for travel, on the airplane and when walking a lot while touring. They seem to take abuse well, my shoes have very little in the way of wear. They are just the most comfortable and flexible shoes—think socks, think socks—you can adjust them for a perfect fit. I was skeptical when i first ordered them but they have proven to be REALLY GREAT SHOES. I have wide feet, some bunions, and high arches. Very few shoes can adapt to my feet the way these do!
Excellent shoes — excellent service The first pair of shoes I got was the Rodeo, but the high ankle support was hard for me to manage. Exchanged them for a pair of Barista’s, which are perfect in every way. I have mild swelling, plus a very high instep, and these are the first closed shoes I’ve been able to wear in a decade. But the thing that is wonderful about this company is their extraordinary customer service. Susan, a real live human on the web chat, was so good to deal with. Thorough, kind, and very patient with my many concerns. I have just ordered a pair of the Saturday shoes, and am excited to get them. Thanks Pandere, for such excellent shoes and for creating a culture of such phenomenal customer service!
I Love These Shoes I am so grateful to have found this shoe. I have lymphedema in one foot and leg and was wearing a slipper on that foot. My Barista shoes ( in blue) fit both feet plus they are fashionable so they don’t look like a granny shoe. The heel adjustment in the back is the greatest idea since I have narrow heels. I did add some cushioning to the footbed. I initially ordered my size, 9 1/2 and returned them for a 10 which are perfect. The company gave me no problem with my return. I’m getting ready to order my next pair.
My old. I lover these shoes! I have multiple problems with my feet and these shoes will allow me to make the shoe as wide or narrow as I need. I ordered the red and they are very stylish. The company is great to work with and I highly recommend them❤️
Great for old feet My feet rarely swell, but I have a bunion and a hammer toe from years of wearing bad shoes. I bought the solid black Baristas last spring and wear them a lot, even to work. The solid color makes them look fairly dressy with pants or a pants suit. They are comfortable and sturdy.
Love the Barista shoes!! I had seen an advertisement on FB and I knew I had to buy them. I just had bunion surgery on my left foot and will have bunion surgery on my right in the upcoming year. Nor only are these shoes are comfortable and supportive, they look so good!! I have had so many compliments (I got the blue) and I can dress them up or down. They give more comfort and support than my chuck taylor low tops, and are good for all seasons (I’m in Southern California, we only have 2 seasons.) I plan to try the other shoes out as well!! Thank you Pandere!!
Wonderful shoes from a great company! I ordered 2 pairs of shoes, the Barista and the Rodeo. The shoes are very well made, super cute, and comfortable.The Barista works well for me and the adjustability is wonderful. I have lymphadema in one of my legs and that causes that foot and ankle to be more swollen at different times. And because the shoes are completely adjustable, my other shoe is adjusted to a smaller size because there's no swelling there. I wound up returning the Rodeo because there is stretch material on the sides of the shoe in spots where it isn't needed for me and it didn't give me enough support there on the sides. The Rodeo would be perfect for people with very wide feet and/or bunions. I am also very happy with the customer service. Whenever I went on the site, Ayla came on to chat and see if I had any questions. She helped me with my return and made it very easy. She was very helpful! I am truly grateful that I found this company and these unique shoes!
Perfect shoe after toe surgery! I needed a shoe to accommodate the post-surgery swelling on the top of my foot. This shoe fit comfortably right out of the box! The toe bed is a true 8W, but the top easily expands as needed. The expandable heel—so clever— makes it easy to slip one’s foot into the shoe without a shoe horn. They have been my go-to left shoe while my right foot heals from surgery, too. I recommended them to my orthopedic surgeon so that she can let her other patients know about Pandere! Did I mention they are also cute? They certainly do not look like orthopedic shoes. Cute and practical—perfect!
First Pair of Pandere shoes! Received my first pair of Pandere Shoes today and wore them all day and they were so comfortable right out of the box. I have Very Wide Feet, but surprisingly they fit like a dream. No lacing up or anything. They are definitely worth every penny and I want to get another pair in a different color! They are made in Portugal and the quality is outstanding. No Chinese made shoes for me that end up getting shipped back because they don’t fit. Thanks Pandere for this great fit. You have an an advocate from now on.
Comfortable Fits great style is good.
My Feet are Happy! I love my new Barista Shoes! They are SO COMFORTABLE! I have wide feet and have always hated the"break in" process. These shoes just fit instantly. They are awesome.
Wonderful Fit I ordered the Barista Shoes in navy and they are wonderful! I do a lot of walking on my job and I have Edema in my left leg. My foot sometimes swell and my shoe at the end of day was always tight. The adjustable ties make for an easy walk at the end of the day. Now that the weather is getting cooler I am going to order a pair of the Rodeo style. I would adsolutely recommend these shoes to my friends and family. Thank you for a great shoe.
Quality shoe This shoe is amazing in that it can expand to various widths. I have Lymphedema and by the end of a day my feet are sometimes swollen and it is nice to be able to expand the width. I also have appreciated the help that Pandere gave me in finding the correct fit for my feet. It is a very well made shoe which I’m sure I will enjoy for a long time.
Finding complaints to be funny. After having looked all over hell and half acre so I did not have to buy 2 separate sizes in shoes in order to get something to fit my brace I discovered this little gem. So I am reading about the reviews. Most of the time reviews are ACTUALLY about the product??? But there are an inordinately high number of complaints of the lack of sizes. For a small start up they are doing well. The size availability of a shoe HAS ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with how the shoe works or fits. They will either get to it or you can move on. Heck, they were not even in existence last year. So we just have to wait. Love the lines. Love the shoes. Thank you for being so proactive.
A Great Discovery!! Hooray!! The Baristas arrived today, and feel great! I had been looking for a travel/walking shoe that would allow my 66 year old wide flat feet with unilateral planter fasciitis to be happy. I don’t have any lymphedema issues, but really wanted to avoid “sneakers”. In terms of size, this is a true 7wide. Thank you, and I will recommend Pandere to my friends!
Woah! These bootie shoes are amazing! More than I anticipated. They are truly shock absorbing and very comfortable, the heel is perfect, they fit really well, and they are stylish to boot! LOVE THEM!
Barista shoe I haven't been able to wear shoes for a while been wearing slippers just love these shoes comfortable and love that they can be adjusted sometimes my feet are normal then when they swell I have shoes I can wear will be ordering more pairs
Barista Shoe Very well made. Very comfortable. Love the style. People who are concerned that the neoprene will make your feet sweat no need to worry. I did not have that problem. Wore them around Boston, and LA and my feet did not sweat. No blisters. I like the fact that there adjustable so as your feet swell you can loosen them up.
At last... I have my life back because of a pair of shoes! I have struggled with swollen feet for several years. I literally have pile of 10 pairs of shoes that I have ordered from "wide feet" sites... shoes I can't even "squeeze" the front 1/3 of my feet into. I have a pair of swim shoes that have Velcro across the top. These are the shoes I have had to wear to work through the Minnesota winter because they were the only thing I could get on my feet. Socially, I had become a hermit because I was ashamed to be seen in public with my feet squeezed into shoes -- with my "flesh" spilling over the top of the shoes like rising bread dough. Today, I received my Pandere Barista Shoes and my life changed in an instant. No, I don't know how long they will last, or any of that... but I do know I feel like going "out on the town." I haven't felt like that in a very long, long time...
Perfect solution Post surgery my right foot is still swollen. So for left foot I pull both bungee cords as tight as possible and the other I leave as loose as possible. I am delighted
So Happy I have lymphedema in my left leg and I have to wear a compression stocking. Even though the stocking cover my foot, my foot still is swollen. Wearing shoes has been a challenge to say the least. I discovered these shoe by an ad on Facebook. What a God send they have been. For the first time in months I can get a shoe on without pain and wear it comfortably. I am over the moon happy with these shoes. They are cute, comfortable, and well made. Overall one of the best purchases I have ever made. Thank you!!
I love my shoes I am so happy to have good supportive shoes that fit. I love them. They are so well made. I do not deal with lots of swelling, but the occasional times that I do, I just adjust the shoes. Amazing. I wear a women's size 12 which is hard enough to find, and then have a bunion and wide feet. But all of my issues are covered with these shoes. I used to be able to only find shoes at a very inexpensive store, and they were not well made and not supportive. My Barista shoes are wonderful. It took me a bit of time to get used to the adjustments, but that is partly due to the fact that I was not used to having that option! Thanks very much for this company and these shoes.
Make smaller sizes. I love the idea of these shoes. I wear a 5/6, but the smallest you have is a 7. Please consider including those with smaller feet in your demographic.
Slippers! They feel like slippers. No, really, The Baristas FEEL like SLIPPERS. With a solid base that cuddles the fascistic on my right foot. Slippers do not EVEN do that. Plus I think the support of the soles is helping my knees. And the expansion system is phenomenal. Brilliant. I'll be saving some of my tax return every year for another pair of these - in a different color. Slippers, I'm telling you - SLIPPERS.
I Hate My Feet After reading the other reviews, I decided to try it. I have bunions, plantar fasciitis, a metatarsal injury, different sized feet, and custom orthotics to help. Needless to say, my feet are a mess. I walked around the house and kept them on for hours to really test them out. It's a very good shoe. It took me awhile to play with the bungee to get the fit just right for each foot, but after tweaking them, they felt good. The bungee system is pretty impressive. It allows for excellent adjustability, which really helps when you have two different sized feet.. As a woman in her 60's, I am always on the lookout for shoes othat won't torture me. Glad I found one. Now come up with a stylish work shoe that has the same capability! (The other model is not very attractive.)
Accommodates my AFO! These are the first shoe that accommodates my brace. I wear an ankle foot orthosis and have had a very difficult time finding shoes...cute shoes that dont scream orthopedic! I have had to buy 2 different sizes to accommodate my brace.however, Pandere shoes are the first to fit both of my feet in one size. Love them!
Smaller Sizes From all that I've read, this looks like it could be the only shoe I'll wear, once it's available in a size 6. Can't wait to find out.
Great Shoe! I got my shoe order today and........I LOVE THEM! I have an extremely hard time finding any kind of shoe that I can wear without my feet hurting. I have problems with heel spurs, neuropathy, hammer toes and to top it all, I tore my achilles tendon last year and my right foot seems to be a little crooked and it's hard to get a shoe on at all. Well, I saw your ad on FACEBOOK and saw how cute the shoes were and ordered BOTH styles, the Barista in Slate Grey and the Neo in black. OH MY GOODNESS! They fit beautifully! So comfortable! Like having slippers on! Keep making new styles! I can't wait! What a clever idea, making the ankle ties so they fit more snugly! I just can't say enough good stuff here! Now I think I will drag out my cane and go for a walk!
Best shoes EVER!! Just had an experience with swollen feet after a trip to Las Vegas, where I couldn't put on the shoes I had packed. Upon my return, I ordered your shoes and wore them today for the first time. They are without doubt the best, most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. The insole support is awesome and the softness and expandability of uppers...well if felt like a ' hug for my feet'. I may never where another pair of shoes ever. Thanks for such a great product and for understanding that not everyone can where the same shoes.
It’s a miracle!!! I just received my Pandere shoes and I am over the moon!!! You have no idea how hard it has been for me to find a shoe with support that fits my feet. I have lymphoedema in my right leg and my foot and ankle are always swollen. I have been wearing an Archopedico stretch mule for years but while very nice for work , they aren’t suitable for walking for exercise. Most sneakers are too narrow ( even those marketed as WideWide) and clunky and also hard to fit across my arch. When I put my foot into the Pandere.... and it actually slid in and felt so comfortable, I was almost in tears!!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!! I finally have a pair of shoes that fit!! Feel good!!! Give support!! And look good!!! I purchased the Barista style and will save to buy another pair ASAP. Thank goodness I found your company via Instagram ad!! Gratefully yours!! Glenna Vasoli
Amazing customer service! Awesome shoes! I have bilateral lymphedema and have literally tried hundreds of pairs of shoes over the last six years. None fit ( except some clogs). I ordered two pairs of shoes from Pandere, ( Neo and Barista) and neither fit ( and I went one size up as suggested). The return was smooth and painless and customer service was amazing. I asked to try the next size up in the Barista shoes and they were mailed immediately. ....and they fit! .....now wearing the first pair of shoes with heels in them for years. Give these shoes a try...if my impossible to fit feet can wear these, maybe they will help you out as well!
Customized comfort I have one foot that swells, and my feet are wide and thick anyways. I needed something besides a clunky oxford. These fit both feet well with a very quick adjustment of the bungee cord system for the front and for the back. I also travel fairly often, so it will be a great shoe for airports! They are easy to slip on and off and are quite comfortable for walking. I’m very glad I took a chance and ordered them!
Outstanding customer service I ordered the Neo in black and the Barista in "Cool Blue." When they arrived and I first looked at them under artificial light, both pairs looked black. I text-chatted with customer service through the company website, and they immediately emailed me a label to ship the Baristas back for exchange. Before re-packaging the Baristas, I took another look at them, this time in bright sunlight. They DID appear to be blue--a very dark navy blue, not the blue shown on the website. Confusingly, the label on the box said "Steel Blue," a color option that isn't on the website. I began to suspect that they might actually be the shoes I had ordered, so I emailed the company a photo of them. They responded within the half-hour, explaining that yes, Steel Blue=Cool Blue, and they would gladly refund my money if I didn't like the color. I decided to keep the shoes, even though I don't totally love the color. They're very comfortable and I think will feel even better after a few days of breaking-in. The customer service person admitted that the photo on the web doesn't accurately capture the color, and that they are planning to re-shoot the pictures. I know it's hard to get it right, and colors can look different on different screens, so I wish them luck! I'm very impressed by the prompt, responsive, and honest interactions I had with Pandere personnel, and I look forward to new colors and styles in their innovative line!
Awesome shoe I have such difficulty wearing closed toe shoes. These shoes have allowed me to wear something other than an open toe. Most comfortable and accommodating when my left foot swells more than my right. And, they look snazzy!
South Australian review. Due to injury my right foot is much wider across the forefoot & has a now, arthritic, large bony lump over the instep. To complicate even more I am narrow at the heel. When I first read about your idea of developing expandable shoes I was most interested, as my problem will get worse as I age. Now 70 but active. I am very happy with the shoes. I need to use my own orthotics as the sole does not give me enough support but it is easy to remove & replace the footbed.. I wish you well with your venture & I am sure there will be many happy customers out there with more comfortable feet.
Nice casual shoe Comfortable shoe from day one, flexible sole, warmer than most shoes (must be the neoprene?) Looks nice too. I have the cool blue color.
All-day comfort For these shoes the words 'set-it and forget it' come to mind, I just put them on and wear them all day with out thinking twice about my feet! I have a pair of the barista in black, they look really cute with opaque leggings and a skirt, as well as casual pants. I like the fact that they are adjustable so you can wear thicker socks with them in the winter, A cool, all-season shoe!
Barista Shoe So I got my first pair of Red Barista shoes 2 weeks ago. I loved the look, color and fit. But today I wore them for the first time and I loved the fit the comfort and style. I thought at first they might be to heavy but they were not. Wore them all day and they were comfortable all day long. That is not usually the case for a first time wear. I got complimented pretty quick by a nurse who immediately ask where I got them. By the way I have Lymphedema of the lower extremities and was wearing custom compression stockings. My feet were very happy .
Comfortable from day one! Upon receiving my Barista's, I packed them for a trip to the UK and Israel. Since I hadn't yet worn them to find out if I had to break them in, I wore sneakers on my flight to the UK. That was the last time during this 2 week trip. After that it was my Barista's all day every day. I had other shoes with my but they never left my bag. These shoes are SO comfortable and they have been my go-to shoes everyday since they arrived. LOVE them!
SOLID * STURDY * STYLING At long last.! A beautiful shoe with flexible fitting for all kinds of feet - be they hard to fit feet, unmatched feet, or just unique feet. PANDERE adjusts and softens to your foot three ways - like a kid glove.. CONGRATULATIONS PANDERE ! You've done it ! I love, as do my feet, my classy, lovely, brick colored ,styling pair of PANDERE.shoes. The very very best. Al long last ! Judith R.
Great shoe for mismatched feet I wear a size 11 on one foot and a size 12 on the other, making closed toe shoes impossible to wear comfortably. These shoes have a stretchy cord at the heel that allows me to easily get one shoe shortened just exactly the amount I need to allow me to wear these comfortably. They also have great support. I am very pleased with this Kick Starter purchase!
No small sizes!! There are still people who wear 4, 5, & 6!!! You lost a sale & will lose many more. I actually liked these.....oh well. Thank heaven I can wear flip-flops........
My feet LOVE your shoes! I'm not a facebook, twitter or Instagram person, so I just had to email you directly to tell you how pleased I am with my shoes! This is the first time in 10 years that I'll be able to go through a Minnesota winter (whatever that might be this year) with a closed-heel shoe! I purchased both the Neo and Barista styles, and the Barista will be my new "outdoor" favorite this winter. No more "mules" or open-backed Crocs. Hooray! The shoes expand in just the right places, and my feet feel very cozy in them - a first since my bi-lateral lymphedema diagnosis. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for developing these wonderful shoes.
Great Invention! I now own two pairs of Pandere Shoes and am absolutely thrilled with them. Even though the right foot is stretched more than the left foot due to Lymphedema swelling you cannot tell the difference in size. And as my foot swells during the day the shoe stretches to accommodate the swelling. Now I am not limping all day from a shoe getting tighter and tighter. I highly recommend them. My CLT is also a fan and is recommending them to patients.
Pure Support and Comfort! I am a Nurse who stands all shift. I first bought the Pandere Barista shoes after suffering a broken baby toe. I could no longer wear my clogs at work without pain on my toe. The Barista was a life saver! I was able to stand and walk the corridors all shift in pure comfort!! I now also bought the Nero and wear them with all my jeans for a cool fashionable look! I highly recommend these shoes for both medical reasons and for anyone just looking for a comfortable alternative.
Not just for swollen feet! I gave these shoes a try because I am tired of hoping every shoe sneaker I buy has to be broken in. I am a senior with bunions, weak ankles and in general just weak feet. These shoes fit from the get go. Comfortable, adjustable to my bunions and ready to use day one. I wore them for my daily three mile walk. No rubbing, no tightness no breaking in! Yeah! I just ordered their boots.

In love with Pandere Because of lymph edema I have had challenges to find shoes that fit and are still comfortable at the end of the day. For past few years even resorted to just wearing tennis shoes because comfort. However, I didn't feel very professional to wear tennis shoes when seeing patients or giving a speech. I could hardly believe how comfortable the shoes were right from the beginning AND even at the end of the day--I also got compliments on how nice they looked. Bought two pair (one of each style) and I am ordering two more. Thank you for giving me my confidence back!!! I am encouraging many of my patients who also struggle with finding comfortable shoes to purchase Pandere shoes. Dr Denton
Scary turned awesome I wore plastic bags on my feet because I could not find a shoe to fit my foot. When I heard of these shoes I jumped on the band wagon and preordered on kickstarter. I got my shoes and they would not go on my left foot (worst foot). I took the insert out and it went on but hurt. I was determined so each day I tried again and again. Finally they were on and working. They just needed to stretch out a bit. I now wear them with the insole. For me and my weird foot I could use a little more depth but I love them and can go out in a stylish shoe and boot. Don't give up!! Let them relax a bit!! Thank you ladies!!
