    My 89 year old mother's bunion feet are hard to fit with shoes. After searching for weeks on end, I finally found the exact style she prefers on orthofeet -- double-wide, sling back sandals with "hook 'n loop" adjustable straps over the in-step type of shoes. Ordering was easy. They arrived just in time (as planned) to take with me (2 1/2 hour drive) for a Mother's Day. She was so delighted with her new shoes...and...Once the shoes were on her feet, she commented, "They feel so good". It's been a great experience with orthofeet all the way 'round.
