Any Lakers fans out there?

Oh, yes, we carry Kareem’s shoe size of 16.

We can provide up to a 20 length in men’s footwear and up to a 15 length in women’s footwear.

If Kareem would require a wider width, then our “Extra Wide Shoes” or “Wide Wide Shoes” line would be helpful. We can provide width to 14 E in both our men’s and women’s athletic footwear.

Comfort shoes are great but Orthopedic/Therapeutic shoes are by far superior!  

We have introduced therapeutic construction with a comfortable style shoe. 

With added upper support and our FREE sets of inserts, we have developed a winning concept.  

Style, support, and comfort all in one shoe – what a great combination.   

We have available widths unheard of in the shoe world.   

Do your feet hurt?   

Have you never had a properly fitting shoe?  

Or have you searched and searched to find the proper width to fit you?  

Then YOU NEED US!  If you have the desire for higher heels you need to shop so where else when dealing with women’s shoes.  

As a diabetic, you need protection and support, and why to get the disease out of your feet!! The video will explain this story. 

We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Orthopedic/Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. 

We have the lengths and the hard-to-find widths. 

And we’re proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” 

Anyone who needs a correctly fitted width must understand that the shoes must have an extension on the sole to properly contain their foot without the foot hanging over the shoe. 

What that means is that every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe. 

For example, if you require a 6 E width, we’ll have an 8 E bottom for the base of that width. 

Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base to provide all the necessary support and balance. 

A comfort shoe is not always an Orthopedic/Therapeutic shoe. 

Also, keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support. 

The lack of midsection support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time. 

These combined movements will increase stress to your feet. Please view all our styles by going to our site 

We, at DTF, have a deep concern for people with diabetes and their need for properly-fitted footwear. 

We can provide 15 different widths for Men and Ladies4 A (Slender for Ladies), 2 A (Narrow for Ladies), B (Narrow for Men and Medium for Ladies) D (Medium for Men and Wide for Ladies). 

Then, 2 E, 3 E, 4 E, 5 E, 6 E, 7 E, 9 E, 10 E, and 14 E in both men and women footwear. 

Dtfootwear can help those who have difficulty finding “oversize’s” – up to 15 in length for Women and up to 20 in length for Men. 

We can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length for ladies in wider widths and 5 to 6 in Men-style in wider widths. 

In addition to being capable of providing these wide widths in fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear, we are offering a FREE GIFT to you! With every pair of shoes purchased. 

We will include up to (3) sets of Customized Heat Moldable Inserts that will provide even more support, added balance, and stability every time you wear your shoes. 

What does it mean, too dtfootwear, to have as many people in the world to have Healthy Happy Feet? 

This video explains our reasons for Healthy Happy Feet as well 






I still own a Medical Company (DTF CO) that handles footwear for the diabetic’s coast to coast 

Going for 18 years, we have had the pleasure of working with over 1/2 million patients. 

 How our,, the website was born by having the nurses (in over 850 facilities) asking for the same footwear and inserts for themselves as well. 

The nurses heard and seen the smiles, the faces of happy clients, and the God Bless you, etc.  

We have had a 98 percent satisfaction rating with our service and products. 

Now, we are working on having one of the top footwear lines on the internet. 

Dealing with widths, lengths, sizing, fitting, major support issues 

Having 3 sets of Heat Customized Moldable Over the counter Inserts

  1. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I usually do not do the blogging and not in this section, that you send the message to me. I’m in this section now and to answer your questions. Yes, we have a whole new section of 9E widths for your needs and with the depth of these shoes wearing an AFO or an Arizona Brace is no problem. Because of the inside brace, you’ll need to go to an 11 1/2 length and a 9E width and will not wear the inserts because a full brace will never balance to a pair of inserts. I recommend the 802 Double Velcro (black or brown) a shoe that can be casual for walking or used as a dressy shoe. Go to and click on the 9E section on the menu.

    Any questions, feel free to call me, and we can talk 909 215 1622

  2. Alan,
    Sorry for the delay and we have a new SEO, and he just made me aware of the comments in my drop box. So to answer your question, we can work with your braces, and if needed, we can do a split size that would mean a $95.00 additional cost, but you would not need to purchase two pairs. We have them make in our factory, and this requires a four week period of production time
    For additional information – please contact,
