  1. The DNA of a Diabetic Shoe - April 25

    Written by Mallory Lor, C.Ped

    How is diabetic footwear different

    Today is National DNA Day, which commemorates the discovery of the DNA double helix and the completion of the human genome project in 2003. You are probably thinking, why is a diabetic shoe company writing about this? Well, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to talk about the DNA of diabetic shoes and diabetic socks.

    What is in the DNA of a diabetic (or therapeutic) shoe? Medicare has some basic criteria when it comes to diabetic shoes:

    • Additional depth in the shoe of 3/16” (to accommodate a foot insert): Dr. Comfort® shoes are all made with at least 7/16” additional depth and in our “double depth” collection 11/16”.
    • Available in half sizes and at least 3 widths: Dr. Comfort® shoes are all available in half sizes and come in Medium, Wide and Extra Wide widths. The women’s Paradise Black is available in a Narrow width.
    • Constructed with leather or other suitable materials: All Dr. Comfort® shoes are made of high quality, breathable materials with most of the casual and dress collection styles made with real leather. Dr. Comfort® offers a wool collection (Sean, Dawn, Liam, Meadow, Autumn) made with Merino wool to help keep feet cool and dry.
    • Must have a closure: Dr. Comfort® shoes all have closures like shoelaces, hook-and-loop or elastic no-tie laces. Many hook-and-loop closures are hidden under a faux buckle. Dr. Comfort® also just released a new style Peter (men’s) and Theresa (women’s) that has hidden hook-and-loop closures with the look of a lace up shoe.

    Keeping the health and safety of customers in mind, Dr. Comfort® has taken additional measures in the construction of diabetic shoes:

    • Seamless toe boxes: Dr. Comfort® shoes do not have bumpy seams in the toe box of the shoes. This helps to reduce rubbing and pressure points on those sensitive feet.
    • Variety of styles and soles: Looking at our line of shoes, you’ll notice the vast array of styles and different types of soles available.
    • Customizable: Dr. Comfort® shoes are constructed to be customized if needed. We can add a lift, lengthen or shorten straps, add a rocker sole and do many more customizations to ensure the shoes meet the specific needs of the wearer. (These modifications are only available through a Dr. Comfort® provider.)

    Dr. Comfort® shoes are truly designed with YOU in mind! Our shoes are primarily available through health care providers who specialize in foot health. Proper footwear can help prevent more serious complications for those at risk of diabetes. If you qualify, Medicare or other insurance plans may help cover the cost.

  2. Boots and Slippers - Fall Favorites

    Written by: Brian Lane

    Fall Favorites - Boots, Slippers, Casual Shoes

    The leaves are changing, football season is in full force, pumpkin spice is added to everything, and flip flop and sandal season is ending. It is now time to think about getting a little cozier with your footwear. The Dr. Comfort line of boots and slippers can help you Fall into something to meet your Autumn needs.

    These boots were made for walking….or hiking, working or any other activity!  Starting with the men’s and women’s chukka style boots which can be either casual or dress, let me introduce you to the Ruk and Cara. Both provide a little more ankle support with a sleek look and feel. Pair these shoes up with some blue jeans or a nice pair of slacks. Any way you wear them, these styles will go great with the season.

    The hiking boot options include the Vigor and Ranger. These two rugged boots have an elastic lace and a hook and loop closure for a securing fit along with a great padded lining for comfort. Wear these on your next trip through the woods, up the mountain, or just around the block. The lightweight design will make you feel like you are hiking in the clouds.

    When it comes to work boots, the Protector and Boss have your feet covered. These premium work boots do it all. They support the ankle, allow for easy removal with the hook eyelets, include a comfortable padded collar and, for the Protector, a steel toe. Not to mention, like all Dr. Comfort footwear, these boots have more room for the toes…almost ½” more than your standard shoes. So, get out there and tackle that fall project because the Boss and Protector will help you succeed!

    Dr. Comfort’s slipper collection helps you relax and get cozy!  In fact, two of our slippers are called Relax and Cozy so you can do just that! These styles, along with the Easy and Cuddle, all come with a great gel insert, to provide cushioning and a comfortable fleece lining. The extra depth in the toe box also allows room for your toes to move and breathe. Either choose the open back design to easily slip your foot inside (Cozy and Easy) or consider the slippers with a back (Relax and Cuddle). Whatever you choose, your feet will thank you!

    You can enjoy the weather change and all the Fall activities while truly appreciating the season wearing your new Dr. Comfort boots or slippers!

  3. FOOTWEAR MATTERS

    Written by: Brian Lane

    Because Footwear Matters

    In our lifetime we will walk over 200 million steps. Of course, footwear matters!  At Dr. Comfort, we know how important your feet are to your overall health. When your feet hurt, you can hurt all over. Creating various types of shoes to address different feet is our job. We want your feet to experience comfort while getting the support and structure you need!

    Wearing shoes not made for your feet can make problems worse. That is one of the reasons why Dr. Comfort offers full and half sizes with 3 available widths. It would be difficult to accommodate everyone’s foot by just one width or full sizes. Our sizes vary from a medium to an extra wide and we offer half sizes to ensure maximum fit!

    Dr. Comfort also offers a variety of different footwear for all walks of life! Many of our Lycra style shoes (Brian, Annie, Douglas, Carter…) have the ability to stretch without causing pressure or irritation to a bunion or during times of swelling. In addition, the Lycra material makes these shoes very breathable and lightweight.

    Are you staying active and need stability? Then let me introduce you to our stability outsole shoes---Gordon, Grace, Jack, Diane, Roger and Ruth. These styles have a dual density outsole for increased stability and support while walking. The durable outsole has an outflare for additional balance and these shoes style to go with their function!

    Another option is finding a shoe that is lighter in weight. We have several styles to offer! Try the Meghan, Katy, Chris or Jason as these shoes look good and feel great! They offer breathability and you will forget you have these shoes on your feet! Goodbye fatigue at the end of a long walk, these shoes are one of the reasons why “Comfort” is in our name!

    Whether you need the right size or need a shoe for your specific needs, Dr. Comfort has you covered!  The experience of designers and staff can help to fulfill your needs for your feet.

  4. Why Wool? Style, Benefits and Pure Comfort

    By: Jeanne Bellezzo

    Comfort You Wool Love

    Ahhh, wool. There may be no more stylish way to keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable. Combine wool with a casual athletic design and therapeutic features, and you have a great shoe for foot problems associated with diabetes, arthritis and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

    The new Dr. Comfort® wool shoes for men and women offer modern, fashionable styles with all the benefits of high-quality Merino wool. In addition to being soft and cozy, wool helps maintain body temperature. The natural fibers wick away moisture to keep socks and feet snug and dry, and let air circulate for breathability. Plus, wool provides antibacterial protection and natural odor resistance for a fresh, comfortable feeling even after hours of wear.

    Our go-anywhere wool shoes not only look good and feel great, they provide the support and stability your feet need. EVA and rubber outsole and extra depth help reduce movement, so you feel more secure. They slip on easily and offer convenient lace-up and hook-and-loop closures for a flexible fit.

    Put a sock on it

    Wearing other shoes or just want to keep your toes toasty around the house? Pull on a pair of our wool crew socks.  Made from 60% Merino wool and designed for therapeutic comfort, these comfy mid-weight socks feature non-binding stretch tops to allow circulation and seamless toes that don’t irritate skin. Built-in arch support and protective padding on the leg and foot help keep the sock in place, reduce friction and help protect skin from pressure and impact. Like our wool shoes, these socks are naturally breathable, odor-resistant and moisture-wicking. They’re perfect for everyday wear – with or without shoes.
