Third pair of this shoe model. I wear them out from overuse! They last, easy to care for, and comfy for home wear and utilization.

I suffer from diabetic neuropathy and I buy these shoes all the time!

I feel better with this boot. When the doctor removed a cast from my foot, the pain was radiating through my foot. I thought I was gonna fall. I could not walk to the bathroom. Now I feel more confident about standing and walking to the bathroom. My feet hurt less with Darco shoes. If you are a diabetic patient, these shoes are washable and easy to clean. My orthopedic surgeon sells these Darco shoes to patients.

My friend wears a brace so we need to buy two separate sizes. She curls her toes, so often has sores and these shoes are quite wonderful with their soft toe box. And the closures are very long which is so appreciated because the brace takes up so much space that extra length allows tying the shoe with no issue. She has sandals that keep coming undone at the closure because they're not long enough. LOVE these shoes!

Perfect Shoe

This is finally the perfect shoe for my mother. She has hammer toes and it is very painful for her to pull shoes on. This shoe has a very wide opening so it is much easier to slide her feet in, and then the velcro allows her to tighten the shoe once it’s on. She has said they are the most comfortable shoes she’s tried in a very long time.

Very comfortable shoe

My husband loves these shoes. The fit is excellent; the shoes are easy for him to put on. Most of all, because he is diabetic, his ties do not rub with the taller toe bed with these shoes. This is the second pair we have ordered.
