Best shoes ever!

I have CMT1A & have been so uncomfortable in shoes all my life, but … not anymore! I now have 3 pairs of Voyage shoes - navy, white & mint - I barely take them off! They’re wider & deeper & fit my bespoke insoles like a dream. They’ve genuinely changed my life & I have far less pain when I wear them. Thank you!

Another winning pair of shoes!

This is my third pair of Voyage shoes. I’m collecting all of the colours! They are very comfortable and fit perfectly. I have to wear two insoles in one shoe and I wish that these could be purchased separately.
I recommend these shoes far and wide. They are just right!

Fabulous Shoes

My husband has Parkinson's and so he has difficulty putting on normal shoes and trainers. These make life much easier for him as he can easily slip them on after opening the zip. He says also they are very comfortable to wear! So thank you for making these shoes as it is a struggle to find fashionable shoes that he likes


My child likes them and they are certainly easy to fit. This brand is unique, easy to put on while developing independence.


These are great for my husband - accessible but stylish as well as comfortable. Bought these after we had great success with the black version.

I'm so pleased I found these shoes, I struggle to get shoes that accommodate my daughters hinged AFOs. These shoes look like 'normal' shoes, which is important to an 11 yr old especially when worn at school. We did struggle to get them on at first, even with removing foot bed and loosening laces but they have softened a little so it is easier to zip them up now.


Amazing shoes and has made an immediate difference to the way my step-son walks.

The best purchase ever

What a difference these shoe's have made to me after suffering from a stroke and left with drop foot. Wish I had got them sooner, amazing shoe's

Great socks

I’ve been looking everywhere for decent, reasonable socks to go under my son’s AFOs. These are brilliant and he loves them as they are “so soft”. Also really reasonable in comparison to other places that do have knee high socks, but for £14 a pair! Thank you friendly shoes!

just brilliant

These shoes are absolutely brilliant my husband really struggled to get shoes on now it is so easy for him, will be getting a new pair soon .

Very friendly

Very happy with shoes. Stylish and allow me to be independent. Superb communication. Recommend


Great looks, good fitting, easy to put on and take off also for my caretakers. My 2 fysiotherapists are also very positive. (MS)

Oh so comfy!

I ordered these trainers because I thought they looked very stylish.
I did think think that I would probably have to return them.
I wear orthotics and I need to buy extra wide fitting shoes as my left foot is swollen most of the time.My orthotics fit in easily .
I was so pleased when I knew for sure that I could keep these trainers.
They are so comfortable ,easy to do up quickly with out fuss and have been worn non stop. HAPPY!


Brilliant shoes , jazzy colours, lovely fit and really helpful staff. Well worth the money. Will certainly be back

I would buy these shoes again

I bought these shoes for my 88yr old dad, he has parkinson's. They are the best shoes he has worn, very light and easy to wash. Definitely recommend them 👌 👍

Lovely shoes

Shoes were lovely but unfortunately I could not put them on with my orthotic.
So I had to return them.

Excellent shoes for AFO

Ordered these shoes and the delivery was here in a few days.
Lovely and stretchy to zip up over splints and lightweight.
Have already ordered another pair to change with.

Shoes for partner with Parkinson’s disease

My partner is very pleased with how comfortable his shoes are and they are very easy to get on especially has he has difficulty with his hands.

Very good shoes

1. The color and design are great. They fit my AFOs perfectly (I went up a size). The quality is good and the zipper seems strong. The customer service is good. I would purchase again. I look forward to seeing some winter/waterproof shoes.

Great for sensors needs

Well thought out shoes for heightened sensory needs. My son hasn’t been able to bear any other shoes apart from crocs which are cold, unstable and means he can’t do sport. He loves these shoes and can now play football and doesn’t feel so different from his peers as finally has a pair of shoes that can work!

Very comfortable

These are the most comfortable shoes I have worn for years. I have very wide feet, dropped foot and wear a brace and orthotics all of which fit inside the shoe. I now have 4 pairs and have been wearing them all the time

An amazing find.

I really wish we had found these earlier. They have given our 23 year old with learning difficulties a new found independence whilst also lasting longer as they are no long forced on without being unfastened.
