Drew Shoe FAQ

Drew Shoe FAQ section that will help answer most of your questions about our shoes and our website.  Please read our Drew Shoe FAQ before making a purchase to ensure that you have the best possible experience with us. 

What size Drew Shoe should I purchase?  Just like clothing, shoe sizes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. At Drew, we base our sizes on the Brannock Device available in most shoe stores. To get the best possible fit, we recommend having your foot measured by a reputable shoe store before ordering any one of our Drew shoes. Alternatively, you can find a Drew dealer in your area by accessing the Drew Shoe Store Locator on our home page and try them on for yourself. We also recommend that you look at the Find Footwear for Your Foot Condition section on our website to ensure you are getting the most therapeutic benefits.

Can I Return My Shoes?  We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you are displeased with your Drew shoes, feel free to return any unworn item within 30 days of your purchase for an exchange or refund minus your original shipping charges.  Be sure to test your new shoes on a soft, carpeted surface, as shoes that are scuffed or worn are not returnable. Returned shoes must also include the return form located on the back of the packing slip that comes with your shipment.  The purchaser must pay all return shipping costs. If you would like to exchange an item, Drew will gladly send your new order with no additional shipping charges.

Second Day Air shipping to the continental U.S. is $27.00 for the first pair and $2.00 for each additional pair.

When will I receive my order?  Drew will ship your order the in one to two business days after we receive it.

You will receive notification via email once your order has been shipped.

Can I buy your shoes at a Store?  Yes!  To find a therapeutic shoe store in your area of the United States, please enter your zip code or other search criteria into the Drew Shoe Store Locator on our home page. Use the Drew Shoe Store Locator to search within a specific distance from your location and find a list of shoe stores that have an account with us and purchase from us regularly. Most locations in our database do not stock every style we make, but the majority of them will "special order" the shoes for you. We also provide the telephone numbers for the stores in our database in most cases. Be sure to call ahead to obtain store hours and driving directions before traveling any long distances.

I live outside the U.S.  Can I still get Drew footwear?   Yes, you can!  If you live outside of the U.S. we are unable to accommodate your orders at this time.  But you can call our Customer Service Department at 800-837-3739 for information about our international distributors.

What is a Last?  At Drew, the Last comes first! The "Last" is the three dimensional plastic model that resembles the shape of the foot. It is the form that leather is pulled over and where the outsoles attach to create a shoe. There are many different Lasts designed to fit different foot shapes.  The Drew Shoe Corporation has created our own unique Lasts and we manufacture our footwear to accommodate for a large variety of foot shapes and foot conditions. Additionally, each Drew Shoe Last comes in a wide array of sizes and widths to ensure the best possible fit.
