Is there anything worse than orthopedic shoes?
Yes, ugly orthopedic shoes. I know! I know! Orthopedic used to be synonymous with ugly. No more my bunion afflicted friend!
Before my new best friend Jeana sent me a pair of DrewShoe orthopedic shoes, I wouldn’t be caught dead in a pair. I don’t need orthopedic shoes, but hey, free is free.
And when I’m visiting the forums and I don’t like somebody, instead of calling them the usual nasty names I will instead pick one or more of these terms used to describe conditions that afflict feet.
- Pes Cavus
- Pes Planus
You Valgus Pes Planus! Varus Cavus! has a certain flair, no?
Drew Shoe is the number one provider and premier manufacturer of orthopedic, diabetic and medical shoes, and they are not ugly.
Lookit the way they are built (letters for illustration only, they do not appear on actual product.)
ADDED DEPTH IN TOE BOX AND FOREFOOT allows extra toe room and provides adequate space for use of orthotics.
PADDED TONGUE minimizes lacing pressure over the instep.
FOAM CUSHIONED COLLAR prevents heel slippage for a snug and friction-free fit.
EXTENDED MEDIAL HEEL STABILIZERprovides rear foot walking stability and minimizes slippage.
REMOVABLE, DUAL-DENSITY INSOLE with Drillex cover wicks moisture away from the foot to keep it healthy and dry. The insole permanently forms to the foot, where the molded bottom provides additional cushioning.
STEEL SHANK adds support and stability with excellent arch support.
WIDE SHANK, LIGHTWEIGHT OUTSOLEprovides a ball-of-foot base for stability and great fit, and a mild “Rocker Bottom” to move the foot forward during walking.
I’ve been wearing the shoes all week, and I like ’em.
