Finally, a shoe that's wide enough to wear!

I'm 73 years old with polio in one leg and hip since I was a baby. For most of my early life I had to go bare footed; my family didn't have the money to buy me special shoes until I started school. To extend their usage I could only wear them for school and church.

As I grew older I had to wear a "one size" shoe. That was virtually torture since my one foot was size 12 2wide, and the other 10 1/2 6E. Compound the fact I have only one leg muscle on the affected leg, which is 3/4" shorter.

I suffered through with this inconvenience until I got a job making enough money I could by 2 pairs of the same shoes - one pair for my normal foot, and another that still could not make me feel much difference since I could only afford shoes found in magazines or the internet.

Even at the 6E shoes, they still did not accommodate my very high arch and short leg since the toe area of the shoes were somewhat tapered and simply scrunched my toes tightly together; and no way could I ever afford to get a custom pair of shoes made since it cost almost $3,000 for the mold, and up to $4,000 for the shoes. So, I compromised. Just recently I found ICS SHOES EXTRA WIDE, DIABETIC and ORTHODIC COMFORT SHOES on the internet to see what was offered.

I found a pair that was 'suitable' for an experiment and at a surprisingly affordable price. When the shoes arrived I was very impressed that they actually looked better than the picture. Since the unaffected foot is only 2X to 3X wide I wear a thick sock on that foot and a thin sock on the wider foot. It works out satisfactorily, but still is not comfortable after a short while.

However, the ICS shoes I received went on easily (very high arch) and the shoes laces made it very easy to comfortably adjust for my one foot. I usually wear Crocs sandals (since they don't fling off my foot when I walk) unless I need to wear other styles (presentations, awards, weddings, funerals, etc.) My ICS shoes are so comfortable I wear them all day WITHOUT the usual pain and fatigue.

Yesterday (1-5-2022) I braved a make-or-break challenge by taking our granddaughter to the Dollywood area amusement attractions in Tennessee - all day! We left early and returned late. We walked what seemed like miles and I was hardly noticing my 'trouble' foot. The shoes feel so comfortable I left them on until everyone was ready for bed. What a fantastic difference it made; in fact, I put them on again this morning and still have them on with complete comfort.

Bottom line to this dissertation is the ICS product I have fulfilled every basic I need to walk more normally, with comfort. Thanks, ICS.

Finally I found you folks and I’m relieved to find the shoes I ordered from you are indeed 5X wide.

Been ordering shoes online from the usuals places. Also been returning shoes online from those places. Gets expensive and frustrating. I have a very wide foot and the widths some—-most—-sellers advertise are completely misleading. Very irritating.

But your sizing is honest and accurate. I smiled when I tried on the shoes you delivered. They fit

You’ve got a repeat customer here. Good for me!

I have a larger left foot than my right. My left foot has a higher instep and in my entire life I have NEVER been able to get a comfortable pair.

My wife saw your company and read how these were 5/16” deeper to allow for orthotics. She figured this was just what would work for me. Also, right foot is a size 12 4E and the left foot is 12 1/2 2D. She decided to get the 13 3E/4E Size.

I just received them 3 hours ago and haven’t taken them off. They fit perfect. My orthotics fit into the shoe along with my higher instep. Nothing is pinching, binding, tight or making my foot go numb! Wish you had more colors to choose from. I’d get several more pairs!! Highly recommend!!!

My father loves his Apis Mt Emey 9704-V

I never thought I'd need to go off Amazon to find something as basic as a 6E wide orthopedic velcro shoe for my dad, but boy am I glad I did! These shoes really are phenomenal, and I want his retirement to be spent leisurely walking in them!

ICS is a great treasure trove! I know I'll always find what I need for my dad here!

Thank you for the Help and Recommendations

I just wanted to send along a "THANK YOU" for all the help and recommendation / advice you have given me and to let you know that I did place an order #125648 this past Friday evening (2-7-20) for shoes & socks for my sister!!

I did go with your recommendations...all the information you provided made everything so much easier in making a final decision on what might work best for her and meet all the needs she has!! You have been so great...and everyone else there at all provide the best customer give the "above & beyond" service...

ICS provides a wide variety of shoes that meets anyone's need for footwear but I'm thinking the folks who have medical conditions and need to have special requirements met...are the folks who are truly blessed with your kindness & integrity in finding just the very best possible shoe type / style / size that meet their needs!!

I'll keep you posted on the outcome, Josie!! I do know because of all the issues my sister has...there maybe a possibility that things won't work out....but I also know that company anywhere has worked as hard in providing the best product & customer service and all with great kindness & caring and patience than the folks at ICS Shoes!! Thank you esp. Josie for doing such a great job!!
