Custom Shoes Orthopedic Process

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 country for 28 years. Many local orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists send their patients to us because of diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, ankle fusions, congenital deformities and much more.



We call this the finishing part of the process.  Sewing a pair of shoes or boots is almost an art in itself.  Every row of stitches is thought out ahead of time and carefully done by one of our talented craftsmen.
