Hi @Natalie*‍ 

What shoes are your currently wearing? I would recommend asking your doctor specifically or seeing an orthotist so they can specialize you a shoe fit for your needs... if you have an insurance, they should cover such a visit.

Certain shoes should be covered by insurance also or medicare. I can't remember the exact type of shoes, but I know some are covered. Just an idea.

Hi @Natalie*‍ 

I have heard good things about https://www.drcomfort.com/

They provide shoes with extra depth and width, which seem to be beneficial for those suffering from diabetes. 

Could you tell us a little bit more about the issues with your feet and what your current shoes are giving you issues or pain with?

What about orthofeet? My podiatrist recommended them to me. Also, discuss this with your podiatrist, because medicare (if oyu are on it) should cover it.
