  Greetings Ron!

I enjoyed your videos. Not only were they educationally informative, but you seem to have a great way of presenting yourself and your products and all of their benefits and reasons why.  I might as well get down to my specific problems and needs.

Slippers are a hard find for me. I wear a size 13 10E.  My challenge is a combination of diabetic neuropathy, edema, lymphodema, flat feet (some inserts actually hurt them – too hard and high where I have no arches) , and venous stasis with a few ulcers on each ankle. I am a very heavy individual, currently weighing over 300lbs and because of other conditions, I do not move around much. I’m mostly at home and because of our ceramic tiles and the most uncomfortable shoes with custom inserts possible, my feet are generally like blocks of frozen ice (especially in the winter-:) ) and always in some kind of foot pain/discomfort – in direct relationship to how much or long I’m on my feet. Every once in a while, even though my legs are daily cleaned and wrapped, the lymphodema in my legs can “weep” and even drain down and into the shoe tops. Because the width of my feet change throughout the day, I have shoes that are Velcro strapped which also makes them easy to get in and out of as well as the ability to accommodate the daily width variations. They still hurt when I wear them so, I usually can’t wait to get home to take them off.

In essence, I’m hoping to find some type of real comfortable, warm, nicely cushioned slipper, that is wide and deep enough to fit in ( as well as get in and out of easily) and wear real comfortably, primarily, around the house … I’d love to “walk on air” -smile-.

I would appreciate any advice, suggestions, or product information on something that you think might help make standing and walking tolerable and hopefully comfortable once again, even though there is no doubt my medical and physical conditions present quite the challenge.

Thank you for your time and efforts. Good luck and blessings with “DTFootwear”.


– C.T.D.-

    There is no way we have a 13 10E width in a slipper but I can move you up in size and have a great chance in fetting you (done this with a number of 9E and 10E width individuals dealing with slippers)  and that is a 16 XW is the size and width that we need to fit you into and need full adjustment style of slipper for your instep ( my only concern is if there is enough adjustability for your instep).
    Style to try would be M0202 and I check our inventory and we have Black Smooth Material in a 16 XW – we have Black Corduroy in a 16 XW – we have Sand (Tan) in Corduroy in a 16 XW and no inserts provided with slippers styles
    Have you ever looked at the style 728E ( just put into search and the style will pop up) and what UNBELIEVABLE style and fits like a glove? Just shipped 9 pairs just today all over the world.
    Thank you,

    We at will offer up to 3 sets of Heat Moldable Customized Inserts to you when you purchase a pair of shoes from us (FREE), and this is up to a $240.00 gift to you from us. Remember, if the bottom of your feet hurt – you lacking the in proper support in the foundation of your footwear. Then these Heat Moldable Customized Inserts are mandatory that you start using them.

    Let’s break down each word ( Heat Moldable Customized Insert) for a better understanding:

    Heat: means that they generate a 2 percent rise in the planter of your foot (bottom) and this in turns helps create better circulation to your feet, legs, knees, lower back and beyond. If you have edema or swelling you need these 3 sets of inserts that you change every four months, so you have a year supply from us and again FREE.

    Moldable:  means that our inserts will mold (100 percent) to every part of the plantar of your feet (bottom) and creates that perfect fit, support, balance, and comfort to your feet over a short period of wearing time.

    Customized: means our inserts will fit you, in a short wearing period. As a simple molding procedure (that means each time you wear the insert it will form to every bottom position of your foot) and will offload and create maximum support to all necessary areas.

    We carry sizes from 4A to 14E widths for Men and Women. Try to find all those sizes under one website- “UNHEARD OF”! But Yes, we do provide 9E 10E and 14E widths for Men and Women. Yes, we carry 4A (Slender eight styles) and 2A (Narrow 42 styles) for Ladies and B (Narrow 5 styles) for Men as well. So to repeat this (this is how vital these widths are to our site) that is available: Slender’s, Narrow’s to Extra Extra Extra Wide Widths (7E 9E 10E 14E) for Ladies. Narrow’s to Extra Extra Extra Wide (9E 10E 14E)Widths for Men.

    We have styles in Men’s 5 to 6 (in length), and those are hard to find sizes.

    We have extended bottoms for the protection of your plantar (bottom) of your feet, and there is no more hang-over, of your feet, dealing with our footwear.

    We carry lengths up to a 20 for Men and 15 in Women’s.

    Most of our styles are perfect for diabetics as well, but you don’t have to be a diabetic to fall in love with our footwear and inserts. 80 percent of our customers are individuals that need that added support (because their current shoe is lacking support and comfort and is very disappointing to them). They need the feeling of maximum support/comfort and the additional sense of “walking on a pillow” all day long (this pillow concept is from dealing with our unbelievable insert program) with their new footwear.

    Again, receive 1 to 3 sets of Heat Moldable Customized Inserts (value up to $240) all for FREE – YES FREE!! Once you start wearing these inserts, you never go back to the conventional form of support. Most shoes and that is athletic, or comfort footwear provides poor supporting foot supplements or inserts.

    We teach you how to measure your feet correctly and how our feet change, over the years, is astonishing – you don’t alone! Please if you are wearing an inside brace, let us know. If your shoes been too uncomfortable or tight over the past few months or years – you need to update your size and width information and this “inch program” is very easy to do at home. I wish you could be in our shoes and witness how many (especially Man) that been misfitting themselves over a significant period. YOU NEEED WIGGLE ROOM IN YOUR SHOES!

    Still, more advantages that have helped us grow but I don’t want to put you to sleep!
