Foot & Ankle Surgeons of Oklahoma offers a wide variety of diabetic shoe options. Patients with diabetes, pre-existing foot disease, multiple foot deformities and those who are risk ulcerating their feet can all benefit from customized diabetic shoes. The primary goal of diabetic shoes and therapeutic footwear is to prevent foot complications, which can include strain, foot ulcers, calluses, or even amputations for patients with diabetes or poor circulation.
We work directly with Dr. Comfort to provide a variety of customized diabetic shoe options that you will want to wear! Our designs are stylish, comfortable and contemporary, and they come in a range of colors and styles. Whether you choose boots, dress shoes, casual shoes, walking shoes or sandals, each style incorporates several important design factors, including:
- Extra Depth – accommodates any potential swelling, as well as custom orthotics.
- Protective Shoe Box – protects toes from all directions.
- Shank – which adds extra support to the arch area of the shoe.
- Heel Counter – provides maximum foot support by cradling the heel to reduce over-pronation and prevent heel slippage.
How the process works:
During your appointment, we’ll use a specialized iPad scanner to take images of your feet. Then, you’ll select your favorite shoe style(s) from our catalog of options. Once you’ve made your decision, we’ll place your order and anticipate the arrival of your new shoes!
Custom diabetic shoes take approximately 4 weeks for construction and delivery. Once your shoes arrive, you’ll come back to our office for a custom fit appointment. If for any reason you do not like your shoes, or if they don’t fit right, we’ll have 30 days to request a return or replacement.
Diabetic shoes are covered by Medicare. If utilizing Medicare, you will need to be seen by a primary care provider at least 6 months before ordering your shoes. We will send your provider forms to sign and once those are returned, we’ll be able to order your shoes.
To schedule an appointment for custom diabetic shoes, please call our office at (405) 418-4500.
"DR. GREEN SAVED MY FOOT! His care, knowledge and straight to the point of how I needed to take care of myself, saved my right foot with just about 6 more months of care, medicine, surgery, and discipline. Dr. Green has to be most reliable and knowledgeable doctor I have ever worked with. ". – Philip Brooks
"After months of ankle pain, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Green after he was highly recommended by a friend. Dr. Green took the time to get to know me and listen to my concerns. He diagnosed my condition quickly and talked through several treatment options to eliminate my pain. I wish I would’ve made an appointment sooner! The entire staff was so friendly and I was in and out in no time!". – Brad
"I needed quite a complex treatment and Dr. Jones did a fantastic job. From my first appointment to my last, everyone in the office was so nice and helpful, and I never waited very long at all! A physical therapist I saw a few weeks after surgery was genuinely impressed with Dr. Jones' work. Highly recommend!". – Andrew
