Comfortable shoes and arthritis

Like most of you, arthritis has affected my feet as my feet are constantly swollen. My shoes often feel tight and other times, I can barely get them on my feet. My search for comfortable shoes has not been successful thus far.
People with arthritis can suffer from pain in the small joints of the feet and/or from foot deformities. Gait may also be altered by knee and arthritis. Wide shoes with supportive arches can help. Lightweight shoes, slip-ons and Velcro closures can also help. When looking for shoes, you need a mix of comfort and support. While this may seem simple, finding the right pair of shoes for painful arthritic feet isn’t that simple.
The quest to find the right pair of shoes can be quite costly. How many times have you purchased a pair of shoes that didn’t work out? Once you have worn them, it is too late to return them.
Have you found a great pair of shoes? If so, tell us where we can find them and what benefit they have offered.
