I am a disabled woman on social security who has diabetes. My mother was as diabetic as well with circulation problems that led to gangrene and leg amputation. I try to be careful. I even wear prescribed diabetics shoes. I had a problem with my last Orthofeet purchase that my foot doctor would not help me with. So I e-mailed the company.

Imagine my surprise when a couple of hours later Mike Bar, the owner of the Orthofeet company, called me directly. I know that he is a busy man. It really impressed me that he took time out to personally contact me and discuss my problem. He got everything straightened out to my satisfaction.

Orthofeet 827

My replacement shoes, “Stretchable, Washable, Model 827 Orthofeet”, came this morning. (I’ll check the manufacturer’s recommendations before I clean them.) I quickly opened the box to try them on. They actually fit well my already swollen feet. My husband even commented he has never heard me say any shoes, much less new ones, were comfortable and they really are. They really look nice.

I’m going to start breaking them in slowly as recommended. I’ll get back to you to let you know how they are wearing. I am so excited–they are fashionable shoes that don’t look like old ladies’ orthotics.

I intend to buy more Orthofeet shoes now that I know their manufacturer backs them. That guarantee means something to me. They really don’t even look like the old lady shoes my mother wore. For orthopedic shoes they look pretty good. They come in a variety of styles and color for casual or dress. They also have a good assortment of colors.

  1. Dear Whitney,

         They have worn like a pleasant dream not the usual nightmare with swelling, discomfort, and blisters.  Hopefully they will last a long, long time.  


  2. It’s awesome when a company rights their wrongs without a problem. My grandfather is also diabetic, so I know how important the right othopedic shoes can be. I’m glad you found a pair and I hope they break in well!
