We are extremely honored to employ veterans and to serve veterans. Thank you for your service!

Made in Portland, OR USA

We are a preferred provider for the Veterans Administration VISN 20 and it is our pleasure to help our Veterans with their footwear and orthotic needs.  Did you get a foot and ankle injury in the war?  Do you have foot complications due to diabetes?  If you are in need of our products and services, talk with your primary care physician or podiatrist (foot doctor) at the VA, so he/she can help determine if there is a medical necessity and create a purchase order to send to our office.

Bill Crary comes from 11 generations of veterans, across all branches. As a company, we honor that heritage and the opportunity to care for and serve those who served us: our veterans.

The typical process is:

  • You visit your VA doctor for your foot needs so he/she can determine medical necessity, and request a new order for your footwear need

  • The VA DME team creates a purchase order and faxes it to Crary Shoes

  • Once we receive the purchase order, our team will call you to schedule an appointment
