|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. I sell the odd sized partners on eBay, you can do that too. If you want you can see the ones I am selling right here.
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!
For winter 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.
www.duoboots.com – international shipping.

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!
www.wideshoes.co.uk - up to 6E width! - also shops in Harlesden and Wembley, UK.
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
Update, August 2012: The following shoes have been reported to be good by a Lymphedema patient:
An Earth shoe at www.zappos.com/kalso-earth. The name of it is Innovate Too.
Dress shoe called Savonna, it's by Joseph Seibel.
Rockport mesh and Nu-buck.
