|Warm, comfy UGG-style boots.|
I don't buy shoes very often but when I do I now buy two pairs, one size for the good foot and one for the bad. If you do that too, check out The Shoeboard where you can buy and sell odd-sized pairs.
Consider buying real leather shoes and have a shoemaker make the one bigger/wider (by stretching the leather). Apparently they can make them as much as two sizes bigger/wider!
UGG-style boots are really comfy. I have only tried some cheap+cheerful replicas but they did the job which was being warm and comfy in the midst of winter and the fact that I could actually get my foot into them was a hit. No support what so ever though. Perhaps there is in the real ones. You can find cheap UGG-style boots at eBay, see this post.
These shops sell individually fitted boots and shoes for wide calfs:
I guess one could buy a pair fitted for the Lymphedemaleg and have the other one altered at a shoemaker. They are quite pricy though, but an investment that could last for many years.

Some shops I have come across with wide fit footwear
www.lovethoseshoes.com – int. shipping
www.evans.co.uk – int. shipping – can choose to view "wide" or "extra wide" footwear
www.next.co.uk – int. delivery – wide fit
www.arcopedicoshoes.com – US only
www.marisota.co.uk/shop/nav/show.action?LpgUid=11096614 – UK, not sure about int. shipping
www.shoetailor.com/shop/home – has EEEEEE width footwear!
Perhaps it is also worth checking out shops for seniors.
Brands with generally some wider fit shoes, boots, sandals:
NewBalance has a line called Extra Wide Width Shoes
