This is a bit off at a tangent ...... but ...... I've been trying for several days to get dad a pair of slippers that fit. He's languishing in his nursing home while I dash back and forth to endless shoe shops, buying, exchanging and returning slippers that he can't get his feet into. They're the right size, 7s, like his last ones, but somehow I can't seem to find any that are wide enough across the top of his foot. I've noticed various people around nursing homes wearing slippers that seem to open right down the foot and then velcro or zip up. Anyone know where you can get them?
