We also have a sizing chart on our web site. This sizing chart can be used for European to U.S. sizing conversions and has the approximate inches per size. Keep in mind that most retail shoes are medium width.
The difference between shoe lengths is approximately 1/3 inch and the difference between widths is approximately 1/8 inch.
If your shoes are too small or too big, we offer free exchanges. Please contact us at 1-866-324-3338 so we can assist you with your exchange.
Please read our Total Delivery Time calculation page to help you estimate your package's time of arrival.

No, we do not work with insurance companies or Medicare. The codes on some pages are provided as a guideline in selecting products that adhere to the strict guideline established by the U.S. government. The Therapeutic Shoe Bill (which pays for shoes for at risk Diabetics) was designed to ensure that at-risk diabetics were actually fit by a skilled practitioner to check the fit of the shoe on the foot to decrease the odds of amputation.
All of our shoes are orthopedic, diabetic or therapeutic.
90 % of our shoes have removable insoles and have added depth. Each shoe will specify under "Special Features" if it has removable insoles and added depth.
Go to here for instructions.
It is suggested that you remove the existing inserts and unlace the shoe completely. Check the length of the new insert against the existing insert, and trim to fit if necessary. Insert the new insert making sure to butt the heel and roll the orthotic into the toe section. Next put the shoes on and stand up, making sure the insert is lying flat. Next, lace the shoes to conform to the unique shape of your foot.
Each manufacturer gets to establish their own width standards. Some width sizes are in even numbers and some are in odd numbers. A 2E with one manufacturer might be the same as a 3E with another. Again, the difference between each width size is about 1/8th of an inch.
A 2E and a 5E are the same width for slippers, but the upper is enhanced by " to allow for the increased width.
Most of the shoe & slipper brands we carry have shoes with excellent arch support. If you have questions on a specific brand or style, feel free to call our customer service staff at 1-866-324-3338.
In addition, most of our shoes have removable footbeds to accommodate your custom orthotics or over the counter arch support insoles. You can put arch supports insoles into any shoe that has a removable footbed. Shoes with a removable insole or shoes that have extra depth make it easier to put an insole or arch support in them.
A 3/4 arch support extends from the ball of the foot (right behind the toes) to the heel. A full length insole extends the entire length of the foot. A 3/4 length insole is more appropriate for dress shoes or those with hammertoes, crossed toes or bunions that may need that extra room. The full length insole offers cushioning the entire length of the foot and is trimmable with ordinary household scissors.
Yes, you will need to pay return postage for returns. See our Return Information page.

Double or extra-depth is 1/8" more, which makes it 1/2 inches deep
Super depth is at least 9/16 of an ince
