Extra Depth Shoes | Double Depth Diabetic Shoes
Shoes with extra depth are deeper than standard shoes
Because of this added depth, your foot goes in deeper than it would in a standard shoe. This gives you more room in the shoe and adequate room for a custom orthotic or diabetic insole. If you've ever taken off your shoes and noticed a red mark where they were squeezed, you could benefit from wearing shoe's with added depth. This red mark could cause a lot of damage for somebody with diabetic feet.
Extra depth also allows extra room for any needed custom orthotics or shoe inserts. 1/4-inch is considered extra-depth and 1/2-inch of added depth is considered extra-extra depth or super depth.
Almost all of the shoes on the Healthyfeetstore.com have removable footbeds and added depth. Visit our Orthopedic Shoes page for the full selection. If you are in need of Extra-Extra Depth Shoes, see our Men's & Women's selection below.
