Get A Spring In Your Step

Take a look at our favourite spring styles from wide fitting shoes brand Sandpiper!

As the weather (hopefully, we do live in Britain after all…) gets warmer and spring blooms around us, it’s the ideal time to leave those bulky boots we wore in winter at the door and step out in something fresh. Here at Clark & Partners, we thought we’d let you know what’s available from our favourite wide fitting shoes brand, Sandpiper, this spring. With everything from pretty pastels, bold colours and floral prints, there’s something for everyone.

Firstly, Finding The Right Fit

Did you know proper fitting footwear is essential to avoiding all kinds of issues? Footwear that’s too narrow can cause bunions, as most of us know, but it can also cause back and hip pain as shoes that are too narrow impact on how you walk, affecting your spinal alignment. If there was ever an excuse needed to buy new shoes (do you ever really need an excuse?), I’d say that’s a pretty good one! Equally, wearing shoes that are too big to give you the extra width, can present a trip hazard. Watch our handy guide to measuring your feet.

Blooming Marvellous

Show off your fun side with floral prints. Fenwick and Falmer are two styles that have flower power as well as Sandpiper’s usual comfort features.

In addition to more muted, classic colours like black and navy, the Fenwick style can be ordered in vibrant shades of Red Floral and Royal Blue Floral. The extra long straps that allow you to adjust the fit to suit, even have a pretty flower detail embroidered on them. But, if you’re not bold enough for blooms but are fed up of dark shades, they’re also available in Cherry Print and shimmering Bronze Print and Grey Mosaic.

For a more open shoe or if you have a high instep, a Mary-Jane-style shoe like the Falmer is ideal. Like the Fenwick, it has extra-long touch fastening straps, but with an elegant flower applique. If that’s as far as you’re willing to go with flowery details, the Falmer is available in subtle shades of Black Print and Navy Print. But for shoes that are a bit more striking, we recommend the Platinum Floral Falmers. With super-soft silver and floral printed leathers, they’re ideal for special occasions.

A Bold Choice

If you fancy a statement shoe this spring, we’ve got three great choices for you. What’s more, they’re all Mary-Jane-style wide fitting shoes, meaning there’s extra room for high insteps and feet prone to swelling.

First up is the Welton wide fit shoe. This simple style can be ordered in our online shop in soft stone or black leather. But we love the red version that is sure to brighten your day. Whilst we can’t guarantee sunshine, the Welton 4E-6E width shoes have Sandpiper’s standard non-slip sole should there be any April showers.

The Farlow style is very similar to the Welton, but with features that help keep your feet cooler. Like all these styles, the Farlow is lightweight. However, they also have cut outs either side and pin-hole details on the toe box that add nice detail as well as allowing air to circulate better. For a pop of colour, choose the Royal Blue leather. Or if you want a shoe that’s going to see you through to summer, the beige option is a great choice.

If you’re looking for shoes with even more ‘spring’ in the fabric, the Walmer style has a breathable elastane toe box. And, like Sandpiper’s other styles, feature the 3-in-1 fit system. Each style comes with two removable insoles so you can find the perfect fit for each foot. We love the rich navy fabric and complimenting soft leather, but they’re also available in black.

Dreaming Of Warmer Weather

As a country, it’s odd that we’re more likely to get warmer weather in spring than we are summer. May tends to bring us a few days of warm sunshine, whilst August has the habit of being a wash out! Sandpiper have created the Bella and Foxton styles with features perfect for whenever the sun decides to make an appearance.

The design of the Foxton extra wide women’s shoe is both stylish and practical. The contrasting straps make these ultra-comfy shoes stand out from the crowd, whilst also allowing air to circulate better. And with dreamy pastel shades of beige and lilac, or warm pewter, Sandpiper haven’t made it an easy choice for us! Thankfully, all their styles come in UK sizes 3-8.

The 4E width Bella style takes things even further with more cut-outs. They keep your feet cool whilst covering and protecting the toes. As the padded interiors are seam-free, they won’t irritate sensitive feet, making them suitable for diabetics. All of Sandpiper’s shoes are also suitable for those with hammertoes, bunions and orthotic users. Available in subtle lilac or sandy soft leather, they have a delicate design on the front. The small one-and-a-quarter inch heel give you a little lift, without being too high.

What’s more, if you have a long-term illness or have a disability, many of our products, including wide-fitting shoes, are exempt from VAT!
