Home / About Pandere Shoes

We're not like other shoe companies.

Pandere was created because our founder Laura - and millions of people just like you - can't fit into regular shoes. Our shoes expand in places that other off-the-rack shoes don't.

Founder Laura Oden has had lymphedema for most of her life. Millions of people like Laura need shoes that accommodate two feet that aren’t always the same size. This can be caused not only by lymphedema, but by circulation issues, injuries, diabetes, arthritis, pregnancy and a host of other conditions.

That's where Pandere Shoes comes in.

Our shoes are designed to expand in all the right places - toebox, midfoot and around the ankles - up to 1.5 sizes in width and volume. Until now, people with unique feet like Laura's have been forced to buy shoes a size or two too big. This can lead to a domino effect of other problems.

For us, a shoe that fits right, feels comfortable and looks good is non-negotiable.

Pandere shoes gives people their lives back.

We imagine shoes differently.

We all hit the same wall when it comes to shoes.

We understand how hard it is to find shoes that fit unique feet. People with lymphedema or other conditions that cause foot and leg swelling can be on an endless search for a shoe that fits. We get it! Without shoes that fit, you're relegated to less mobility, increased risk of abrasions, cellulitis and all kinds of discomforts or disasters.

Things are about to get better. Welcome to Pandere Shoes.
