FAQ: About Our Footwear
What makes Dr. Comfort shoes different?
Our shoes are specially designed with the input of foot health professionals. They feature extra width and depth in the toe box and forefoot to relieve pressure from key areas of your feet, and they’re manufactured using only top quality materials. That makes them great for people with diabetes and other health conditions that affect the feet.
Who are your shoes intended for?
Our shoes were originally designed for people with diabetes. We now offer a variety of comfort footwear styles for people with all kinds of therapeutic needs. See a foot care professional in your area for more information.
How do your shoes fit?
Dr. Comfort shoes meet the American Lasting Standards. They typically fit true to size.
Do all your shoes fit the same?
Typically, yes. Dr. Comfort uses one type of construction for all men’s shoes. We use two types of construction, Standard and Euro, for women’s shoes. Women’s styles in our narrower, tapered Euro construction include Delight, Kristin, Vigor, Betsy, Betty, Lily, LuLu, Move, Walk, Paradise, Sunshine, Flute, Breeze and Susie. All other styles are our more rounded Standard construction.
The material and design of the shoe may affect the way your shoes fit.
What sizes are your shoes available in?
Men’s shoes range from 6–12, 13, 14 and 15 in all styles. Men’s widths range from B to EEEE in all styles.
Women’s shoes are available in sizes 4–10 & 11 in all styles, with select styles available in size 10 1/2 and 12. Women’s widths range from A to EE in all styles. AA width is available in select styles in sizes 8–11.
What are your shoes made of?
Dr. Comfort uses full-grain leather uppers for most of the shoes in our collection. Select styles are made from nu buck, a buffed leather similar to suede. Other models are made using lycra, a breathable, stretchable material.
Our shoes feature full-leather linings, except the athletic models that utilize a cotton lining.
How can I minimize heel slippage?
The best way to minimize heel slippage is to wear a lace-up shoe. Different lacing techniques can help reduce heel slippage. If a Velcro closure is your only option, placing a tongue pad under the tongue of the shoe will reduce heel slippage.
Dr. Comfort does not recommend the use of heel grippers, especially for people with diabetes.
Why should I wear Dr. Comfort slippers?
When you’re living with diabetes or other health conditions with foot complications, it’s important to protect your feet at all times. Walking around barefoot can put your feet at risk. Bumps and bruises can turn into much worse problems. Dr. Comfort’s closed and open heel slippers feature extra-depth construction, protective toe boxes, non-skid outsoles and gel inserts. So your feet are as comfortable as they are safe — especially when you’re at home.
