Zappos is now selling single shoes and mixed size pairs

The news comes at a time when the market for footwear designed to meet the needs of people with disabilities and specific health conditions is growing. It is expected to reach $10.6 billion by 2024, up from $8 billion in 2020, according to market research firm Coresight Research.

Zappos already sells an assortment of shoes for people with disabilities or dexterity issues, with features like zippers around the front or back for easy access to put on or take off the shoes.

“But we’ve been getting many requests over the years from people asking us if we can also sell them a single shoe or different sized pairs,” said Dana Zumbo, business development manager with Zappos Adaptive, the company’s program that caters to shoppers with disabilities.
