Generations of Experience - Decades of Dedication

Approximately 90% of the footwear we craft is for medical patients needing accommodation because of degenerative foot conditions, or as a result of accidents. We work with many workers' compensation injury victims, diabetics, and professional athletes that have become aware of the great need to protect their feet from daily abuse. For a large majority of our customers, the shoes they wear are considered medical devices, not luxury items.

Crary Shoes has been serving customers all over the world for over 40 years. Physicians of all specialties send their patients to us because of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, ankle fusions, congenital deformities, war injuries and much more.

Crary Shoes - Story Video



“At Crary Shoes you will find shoemaking that combines medical-orthopedic requirements, functionality and elegance. We feel that the process of shoemaking is part art and part science, and that the proper use of both will give our customers the best of all worlds, footwear that feels good and also looks good.” - Bill Crary


We are proud to support our Veterans

Crary Shoes has been serving Veterans who have experienced injuries due to their service to our country and also those who suffer from diabetes.  

Bill Crary is the son of William B. Crary, Sr. who was KIA in Korea and also the adopted son of Bill Danner, of Danner Boots.  Bill Danner served our country in WWII, flying 50 missions.  He recently passed at the ripe old age of 97.


Made in USA

Crary Shoes is one of the last remaining custom orthopedic shoemakers who still manufactures in the United States.  Every pair of custom shoes are made in our factory in Portland, Oregon.

We thank you for supporting American Workers!

Our mission is to get you the footwear you need to adventure to the places you desire!
