This concerns ready-to-wear dressing shoes, which are available in different versions: for example, in different widths and height sizes. It can also be special versions with ‘floating’ toes or cutouts for the heel.

A closed or open bandage shoe

The difference in these shoes determines whether the shoes are for indoor or outdoor use. A closed bandage shoe provides additional protection and compression.
