What Are Orthopedic Shoes?

Orthopedic shoes aren’t just for grandparents. And they don’t have to be those clunky shoes of the past. It’s become apparent to a lot of us that we need to take care of our feet. We’ve moved away from sacrificing our health and comfort for style. That's why Drew continues to produce great-looking footwear that supports the mechanics and structure of the foot, ankle, and leg. 

Many people can be turned off by the word “orthopedic.” But really, wearing shoes that properly support and protect your foot throughout the day has significant health benefits.

What Makes a Shoe Orthopedic?

Orthopedic shoes have a number of features, including:

  • Designed to support the complex structures of the foot.
  • Strong, properly shaped midsole and outsole that prevent the sole from twisting easily with a perfect pitch built into the rocker outsole to take weight off the forefoot and assist in comfortable walking.
  • Removable insoles that can accommodate prescribed and custom orthotics.
  • Availability in a variety of widths and shapes to ensure a proper fit for any foot shape.
  • Added and double depth shoes to accommodate your foot shape and arches.
  • A firm heel counter that cradles the heel and prevents over-pronation, integrating your foot with the midsole.

That’s why at Drew, we design our shoes with these features—to keep your body healthy and protected from the ground up.

Health Benefits

Poor foot mechanics affect people of all ages. Fortunately, orthopedic shoes have come a long way from the clunky, black styles of years past. Drew carries a number of stylish options available for people of all ages and fashion tastes.

The foot is an intricate structure containing 26 bones. 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons (and nearly 8000 nerves).

Finding the right shoe, with the right support, fit, and protection can aid in preventing foot problems as well as alleviate the chronic pain associated with existing foot problems.

With all that complexity, it’s no wonder 75% of Americans will experience some sort of foot problem in their lifetime—that’s according to a 2014 study done by the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Did you know that a properly fitted shoe can support blood flow?

This is a huge benefit for anyone suffering from diabetic neuropathy as this condition can lead to restricted blood flow in the feet.

Most importantly, if you suffer from any sort of chronic foot pain, exercise seems almost impossible.

The right orthopedic shoes can help you get back on your feet so you can experience the benefits of regular exercise.

According to a 2006 study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, regular exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and provides better quality of life.
