Diabetic shoes for small feet

Posted By: Chas Hoppe on February 27, 2017

Hello everyone,

I recently saw a female patient for diabetic shoes and inserts. I measured
her at a size 2.5 on a Brannock device. Does anyone know of a manufacturer
who sells shoes this small? Most shoes I've found start at a women's size
5. She is older with severe RA in her hands and is looking for a shoe that
is easy to slip on and off. Are there any OTS options for someone with feet
this small or should I look into custom footwear?

As always, thanks for the responses,
