Diabetic Footwear

Prescription diabetic footwear can help prevent more serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes. We carry a full line of Dr. Comfort diabetic footwear, including: shoes, socks, and inserts. Stop in at any Rice Home Medical location and talk to a customer service representative about a shoe fitting.


The shoes are designed to the highest standards of foot wellness and are available in a range of size and difficult-to-fit widths. A firm heel counter provides enhanced support, a leather lining keeps feet cool and dry, and extra width and depth on the toe box reduce pressure for problematic areas.


Dr. Comfort socks promote blood circulation and anion production and are a natural deodorizer. Socks designs are a science: the ring-toe construction secures the fit, the smooth seams reduce friction, the middle of the sock has light arch support, ventilated air flow mesh regulates foot temperature, heel construction eliminates bunching, and the cuff on the upper part of the sock reduces constriction.


All Dr. Comfort shoes come with a pair of Gel Plus inserts, but custom heat-moldable inserts are also an option. Gel Plus inserts have a padded heel to increase comfort, shock absorption to reduce joint stress, and they also provide medial and lateral stability for support and balance. Heat-moldable inserts match the exact contour of your arch, providing the utmost comfort and stability for your own unique footprint. Ask a customer service representative at your local Rice Home Medical to find out which insert style is right for you.



Insurance coverage should always be verified with one of Rice Home Medical’s customer service representatives. Eligibility can vary by policy plan.
