Drew Shoe Testimonials
I have been suffering with intense foot pain for over two years. After going to 3 doctors I finally found one that had an answer for me. He sent me to have orthotics made for my falling arches. While there I had an opportunity to try on a pair of Drew Rose shoes. The combination of your wonderful shoes and. My new orthotics I haven't felt so good in years. Now I feel like a human again. Now I'm walking the dogs and I'm smiling. I never realized how much my mood was affected by the pain. With Drew shoes I have become happy once again. Thank you thank you thank you!

I have 2 main pair of Drew shoes: (1) Drew Journey II Black and (2) Drew Surge (Gray on Gray). I wear the Surge the majority of the time and love them.
My journey is unique due to the fact it is a journey to comfort being that I am in a wheelchair. I have tried many other styles of shoes and find my feet to be terribly uncomfortable. Nothing worse than being in a power wheelchair and having your feet hurt. Just something that should not happen.
Drew Shoes have taken me to a comfort destination with the excellent construction, padding for Diabetic feet, and Extra Wide, Double Depth for any swelling due to the inactivity. Plus I get the extra bonus of them looking good. So often I sacrifice function over fashion but these do both. And being handicapped, I added EZ lock bungee laces so I can easily slip them on.
Thanks to Drew my journey is an adventure that I enjoy everyday.

I wear the Trek Boot. I have been with Coconino County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Unit for 14 years. We are the second largest county in the United States. Over the years I have been on many hundreds of searches throughout our county. We cover many different types of terrain. From 13,000 foot mountains down to the Grand Canyon and every type of terrain you can imagine in between. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many miles I have covered over the years. On many occasions we may have to carry an injured person out, sometimes for many miles. Believe me, you definitely don't want foot problems when you have to work at my job.
I just purchased my 3rd pair of boots through your company over the years. They get a tremendous amount of wear and take one heck of a beating during a search. It is the only boot for this type of activity I would ever purchase.

I'm a big guy, 6'4", 350 lbs. I wear a size 13W(EE). I've always been big and pretty hard on most shoes. Over the years, I developed flat feet, left foot in particular, along with some arthritis developing in the ankle . My podiatrist fitted me with an "Arizona Brace" for my left ankle. The brace worked well to relieve pain when I had to be on my feet a lot. The downside was the fact that I had to wear a larger size 15 EEEE shoe over it - meaning I had to buy two pairs of shoes different sizes.
The brace is now almost 2 years old and needs replacing. That's where Drew Shoe came to my rescue.
I purchased a pair of Drew Rockford boots. I wear them without the Arizona Brace and the resulting relief to my ankle pain is equal to or better than the relief given by the brace. Plus no additional hassle in dealing with the brace. For me, this is a huge benefit. The boot supports my ankle in much the same way as the Arizona Brace did. I do not have Rx orthotics yet and maybe not need any yet.
A week ago, I purchased a second pair - this time the Boulder. It's the oxford version of the Rockford. Although it doesn't wrap my ankle like the boot does, the fit and the stability I get are near equal. I plan to use the Boulders for more "dressier" occasions.
I'm especially looking forward to using my new Drew Shoes on a road trip my wife and I will be going on in a few weeks touring
the Pacific Coast from LA to Seattle and doing some casual hiking in the various National Parks we'll be traveling to.

I purchased my Drew shoes to protect my feet, and the great performance I was told they had. Not misdirected! In my job, a store Porter, walking quickly and safely is a major part of my job. These Drew 'Surge' shoes are comfortable for my 6E wide feet, and the amount of walking I do on fairly hard, non shock absorbent tile floor, approximately 2 and a half to three and a half miles a day. Safety and speed are rather important and my 'Surge' shoes have met my desires and needs!

I wear the Walker II. I am on my feet all day. I am a consultant and a college professor and stand 8-10 hours a day. About 8 years ago all the standing took its toll. I developed plantar fasciitis then heal spurs, then Achilles tendinitis. The pain was so debilitating I was considering retiring. My therapist suggested Drew Shoes and it I have been so pleased by their performance. They are extremely comfortable, yet provide excellent support for my feet, even with my orthotics that have a 10mm lift. Other shoes I have had break down after about a year but the Drew shoes are so well made I have a pair that is 5 years old and still in great shape. These shoes have literally been around the world. I never buy shoes on-line but Drew groups shoes by last style so I know what I'm getting. All the shoes with the same last fit the same. I don't have to worry about returning them. If it's a P66 last I know they will fit. To make a long story short I will be 70 this year, and without the foot pain I used to have I have no plans to retire any time soon. Ron- Oak Ridge, TN

Drew Shoes have given my 88 yr old Mom new life! She has suffered from bunions and hammertoes for years! Had surgery for both but her feet hurt horribly. I decided to search for shoes, on google, and had No Idea there were shoes with tall toe beds for these problems. I have now ordered her at least 5 pairs and she has had ABSOLUTELY NO FOOT PAIN for over a year! Drew Shoes have been a miracle for her. You have lots of aches and pains as you age but foot pain limits you to what you can do. Now she can walk in comfort! Thanks Drew...we appreciate you! Glenda- Jackson, TN

I love my Tulip Drew shoes for morning walks in my small hometown and vacations in the western US. I love my Drew shoes for touring 18 countries in Europe - walking the Coliseum in Rome, olive oil plantations in Greece, the uneven streets of Pompeii and Ephesus, around the Eiffel Tower, the still standing walls in Berlin, the markets in Istanbul, the streets of Amsterdam. I can and will go on and on. I love my Drew shoes!

When I bought my first pair of Drew orthopedic shoes 25 years ago, the salesman said I would never want to wear anything else and he was right. With totally flat feet I would collapse any ordinary shoe within a month or two. Drew's steel shank solves that problem hands down. The first few days I wore my shoes my bones creaked and cracked as it all went into proper alignment. And it felt so good! Perfect fit for my narrow feet and serious support for my pancake flat arches. Best of all my feet point straight with the shoes...I no longer waddle like a duck. Thank you Drew...you changed my life. Now I can walk anywhere.

My Drew walking shoes took me to Machu Picchu and Easter Island this past August. My husband and I had always wanted to go to these two locations. The opportunity to go to both on the same trip came this year and we made plans to go; however, prior to the trip, I started having extremely bad heel pain. I was afraid our trip was going to be ruined. I did some research and found out about Drews. I purchased my walking shoes and with help from my doctor was able to go on a trip of a lifetime. Thanks Drew!
Lois from Indiana
I purchased these for my 73-year-old mother who has orthopedic inserts and cannot wear regular shoes. She almost had to have shoes custom made for her, until we found these. They are amazing for her. The tie provides incredible support, and we're buying her a second pair, because she'll be wearing them every day! The shoes have two removable inserts to provide for customized fit. She is relieved to have these. We'll be purchasing more Drew products!

Love, love, love this shoe!! I get so many compliments when I wear them. I injured my foot and suddenly no shoe is supportive enough except the Drew brand of shoe. The Blast is the best most comfy shoe ever. It is the only shoe I can wear since my injury. I highly recommend this shoe. Pure perfection!
I wanted to send a quick review for the DREW FLARE shoes I recently ordered. I wear DREW almost exclusively, but this pair of shoes brings such incredible relief to my feet that I just cannot stop wearing them. The shoes are for ANYONE, but for people with arch pain, or limps due to injuries, these are beyond good. How can a pair of shoes take away walking pain and make me want to walk more? Thank you, Drew designers. These are Golden.
I just wanted to say you saved my summer. After foot surgery last year, I packed up all my sandals that I will probably never be able to wear again. I found your shoe line and after trying one pair, I immediately bought two more. At my next podiatry appointment, the staff loved the sandals since they could accommodate orthotics and are really cute. They told me they now recommend them to all of their patients.
I love ordering from Drew.com. I get hte shoes that enable me to be able to walk and work at a great price. Ordering is easy and I can find a variety of shoes that fit the same as other shoes that work for me.
I can't tell you enough the compliments I get on my shoes, especially being tht anyone who knows me knows I wear a big brace on my right leg and that I am constantly in pain. To have shoes that are not only attractive and fashionable that do not add to the overall pain level is like a gift from the Almighty! I continue to tell people about your website. People are always impressed to know they are orthopedic!
I am here to tell you that I ordered two pair of shoes from you and I am sooooo happy! I have finally found shoes for my broken down feet. Thank you. Please never leave!
I have Drew shoes in oxford, dress, casual and sandals - more pairs than I care to count. I'm glad I discovered your website, and am very pleased with the different styles I recently ordered. My podiatrist was very impressed with them as well. In fact, he included one of the insoles in an order for new orthotics to insure they'll fit all my Drew shoes! Thanks!
My shoes came today. It was worth the wait. The shocking truth is:
They do not hurt, even in the toe box!
I can adjust the straps as necessary.
They seem solidly constructed.
They are attractive and practical.
My shoe size is generally not available in stores, and mail order is always risky, because every shoe fits so differently, and returns can be expensive, so this is great. Yipee! Thank you.

"Running a busy printing business, I'm on my feet all day. I was having a lot of pain and it started to affect my energy level and my ability to work. This is the only brand of shoes I've found that actually allowed me to concentrate on my job, not on foot pain. I'm not sure how they work, but they keep me pain free all day. I would never go back to another brand."
Jim Watkins, Printing Business Owner
"I sincerely love your shoes. I have a ton of other shoes, and I have to wear them. I just can't afford to pitch them, but I'll never again buy them. I usually change socks and shoes half way through the day, and then with clean socks and a different pair of shoes my feet feel revitalized. I started doing this years ago as a nurse when I had to wear uncomfortable duty shoes that were about looks, not what they felt like. So I like having two pairs of your shoes, one for the beginning of my day and one for the end of my day!"
"After retiring from the NYC Police Dept., I decided to apply for a Security Job at the The Yonkers Casino. After standing 8 hours a day, I received pain in my right calf and then a sharp pain in my right thigh like someone was jabbing a sharp instrument into it. I was ready to quit when I found your site and ordered a pair of Security Shoes. Within two days the pain was gone and I have been working 12 hours a day without a pain. Six weeks now and yesterday I brought the empty box into our office so others can get these wonderful shoes."
Pasquale Mattioli - Retired NYC Police Dept.
"I was about to go to work today when the Spring shoes arrived. I wore them to work and at the end of the day, my feet and legs did not hurt. They look good and they fit perfect. The size 10.5 is hard to find, and most often I buy 11, and they slip a little at the heel. The shoes even give room for my feet to swell without being too tight. What a difference it made in my day. I am a Medical Assistant in a busy doctor's office, and am on my feet all day. Everyone in the office admired my shoes and wanted to know where I bought them. In a few weeks, I will order another pair to have one on hand when these wear out. The shoes have great value for the price. I am 110% pleased with my purchase. I ordered over the phone and the person who handled my call was also nice. Thank you for a great shoe and service."

"As a Chiropractic Doctor, I'm on my feet for several hours a day. Usually I would go home with complaints of pain in my feet and legs. But after wearing your shoes, this discomfort has greatly decreased. Thanks again for letting me experience these shoes. I would gladly recommend them to other people!"
Jeffrey L. Donay, D.C.
"Drew Shoes, by far offer the most attractive selections without compromising quality, support and comfort. My feet are not worn out at the end of the day from the wrong shoes, and I thank you very much, Drew for providing the trifecta of specialty shoes; quality, style and price! Keep up the good work!"
R. Disbrow, Lake City, FL
"I just wanted to say thank you for selling such a wonderful shoe...at a great price. I have had my first pair for 2 days and already I purchased an additional pair!!! My feet have never felt better. I am a professional bartender and am on my feet all day and night...and finally, a shoe I look forward to wear!"
"My shoes came late Tuesday. Yesterday, Wednesday, I wore them. Simply, thank you. It was my first pain free day in a very long time. That is saying a lot considering it was also a day of helping my son move out of his 4th floor dorm room. I am thrilled and will be back often. You have a new, loyal customer. P.S. the best part is they LOOK great too!!"
"This is a huge "thank you" to your company for being there and doing what you do . . . I am, for the first time in more than a year, free of pain . . ."
"Hi: I have a black pair of Rockford 40808-18, size 12 6E. The laces were destroyed in a recent motorcycle accident. Would you be so kind to send me a new pair, I can't find a match locally. You're boots are awesome, just bought a second pair for yard work. FYI the boot saved my toes in the motorcycle accident. Thanks!"
"I discovered Drew shoes after a fall shattered my heels. Unlike most companies, Drew had the size (12, 6E) in several different styles. Of them, the Force has been a superior shoe for my needs. The combination of flat sole, good cushioning, room for orthopedic inserts, and overall foot support have made a big difference in my ability to walk comfortably. Other shoes were painful after just a few minutes of standing; with Drew I have been able to resume many of my normal activities. My feet will never be the same, but these shoes have helped regain much of my mobility and independence."
