About Us

DearFeet has a large selection and is one of the premier vendors of comfort/special need shoes for the less fortunate and well below poverty level.

Most individuals have coverage through private insurance (39 percent) or Medicare (44 percent). Sixty percent of diagnosed diabetics under the age of 65 were insured by Medicaid and most likely to be from low income backgrounds. Diabetics covered in the private insurance market generally belong to employer-sponsored group health plans or individual health plans. Employer-sponsored group health plans cover most services because coverage is subsidized and often offer higher protection. Those under age 65 whose job or family member's do not offer such coverage usually must rely on different organizations like DearFeet. They may have difficulties finding affordable treatment and education that will help them, especially if they have a pre-existing chronic disease such as diabetes.

If you spend most of your time on your feet, or even if you don't, your feet deserve attention. There are many people who exercise regularly and still don't spend enough time to care for their feet. Your foot does get exposure that requires maintenance since your health has a lot to do with footing.

In communities across the world, there is a growing need and responsibility to provide options that give people the opportunity to walk—to walk more often, to walk to more places, and to feel safe while doing so. The benefits of walking—whether for utilitarian or recreational purposes—can be expressed in personal health, enhanced quality of life, economic rewards, as well as others. DearFeet gives people that are less fortunate the opportunity to ambulate in a healthier lifestyle.
