In making our shoes, we wanted to make our sizing as simple as possible. We only used one last for all of our women’s shoes and one last for all of our men’s shoes. No matter which style you choose, they’ll all fit just about the same. Our shoes run true-to-size in terms of length and width; however, they do fit much fuller than a typical shoe in order to accommodate for swelling and a thicker insert. Therefore, if in between sizes or widths, we recommend sizing down. The following conversions can be used for our sizes:

Fitting Tips

It’s important to note that all shoe manufacturers use their own lasts to construct their footwear. As a result, the continuity of fit from one manufacturer to the next can be very inconsistent. At Anodyne, we designed our shoes to fit fuller in the instep and toe box, relative to other diabetic shoe companies, in order to better accommodate a thicker orthotic and any potential swelling. Nonetheless, our shoes, in general, fit slightly larger than our competitors’ do. 

Shoe Care and Cleaning Instructions

  • Use a damp cloth to clean dirt and grime off of shoe upper and outsole and allow to dry.
  • For leather shoes – soften, condition, and replenish leathers and color, by applying leather conditioner on it evenly with a clean, dry cloth.
  • The shoe lining and insert can be cared for by spraying an Anti-microbial Protectant.  
  • For future protection of shoes, we recommend using a Stain Shield to help repel water and avoid staining.
  • Never put shoes in the washing machine.
Regular care and cleaning will ensure a longer lifespan for your shoes.


Break-in Instructions

Just like most other shoes, you will want to take some time to break in your new shoes before wearing full time. Here are our instructions:

  • In the comfort of your own home, put your shoes on and walk around for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • After the short wear, remove your shoes and socks, and examine your feet to make sure there are no signs of irritation, redness or dark spots. 
  • Wear your shoes indoors a few hours a day over the next couple days, while continually checking your feet for signs of irritation.
  • Once you feel comfortable that your new shoes aren’t causing any issues, go ahead and begin wearing them outside, full-time.
  • It is very important to continue to perform daily exams on your feet during and after the break-in process.

In the event that there is ever any irritation, redness, or darks spots on your feet during or after the break-in process, discontinue wear of your shoes and contact your foot care specialist immediately.
