BAREFOOT FREEDOM - FOOT SAVER - DREW GYM SHOES


ABOUT DREW BAREFOOT FREEDOM SHOES & WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE SHOE INDUSTRY


Styles and Fabrication Techniques change over time.  Mostly to manufacture with less steps and less labor to keep prices down. In a global market, it is necessary to keep their product line competitive in price and style.  Often, support is compromised in these changes. However, DREW makes the most supportive gym shoes in the world.  Many actually have steel shanks in the arch and orthopaedic heel counters.  The rest have fibre shanks and full heel counters.   We carry a huge inventory of support styles, but over time, the sizes get sold off and we can no longer replace the inventory.  So prices are frozen and eventually, we have to put a few pair on sale, as we need a customer that wants that shoe and has the foot that will correctly fit it.   Often customers wear a shoe for years and then find they can no longer find it.  They find us in their browser.  This new page should help many find that favorite style or shoe and save some money.

For years, Drew has heard their customers, and finally made support gym shoes like their orthopaedic shoes.  They put in the plus cushion system to allow the removal of one or both insoles to accommodate arch supports, different sizes in feet, or deformities.

We have a large selection, but sizes are quickly going, so to help you identify what is available, we are now placing IN THE THIRD COLUMN, on this page, the sizes that are available here.   You may also make inquiries as to other sizes and if the factory  or a competitor has one to sell us, we may be able to help you. Like all retail stores, we get down to the last few pair of a style, then have to wait for somone to come in with the exact desire for that shoe and the size and width to fit it.  We have decided to launch some catalogs to liquidate these last pairs.  We will still cover the handling and shipping at the sale price.   

ONLY The third column SIZES LISTED will be available in the color where the size appears  AT THE SPECIAL SALE PRICE.

FOR DISCONTINUED SHOES,  LOOK FOR WHAT IS STILL AVAILABLE IN THE THIRD COLUMN.

ABOUT DREW BAREFOOT FREEDOM SHOES & WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE SHOE INDUSTRY

America's favorite extra support shoe company. Located in Lancaster, Ohio this old time company still makes their shoes in up to twelve widths to the half size. Barefoot Freedom is their orthopaedic and in-depth line. They make these shoes on standard and oblique toe last.  All of their orthopaedic shoes have double steel shanks which are higher and wider than standard shanks and they are also contoured for right and left feet. Extended orthopaedic long medial heel counters and lateral counters make these shoes ideal for control of pronation or weak feet. They are also useful in holding you in position over orthotics, preventing you from rolling over your orthotics through the side of the shoe.  Their second younger fashion line have leather uppers and steel shanks, but lack the double steel shank and extended heel counters found in the orthopaedic line. 

The standard toe in depths have a plastizote innersole to cushion the bottom of your foot and arch from the concrete. The oblique toe in depths have a 1/4 inch plastizote innersole for even more cushion. In recent years, most of their shoes come with two insoles to allow more customization to your feet or orthotics.  These innersoles can be removed for more toe room, or to add your brace or arch supports from your doctor.  Some styles come with Vibram soles for maximum shock absorption and slip prevention on wet surfaces. 

Many years ago, Drew bought out Miller of Cincinnati, Ohio. The old girl scout constructions of leather uppers, innersoles, soles and linings are no longer available with the one inch separate hard rubber heel.  We still have a few sizes, check the third column for sizes available.  Of course the double steel shanks and long orthopaedic counters with leather soles can be bought in the Style Summit from P W Minor, it fits like the old Drew Rings or a half size shorter than the old Millers 71 Last.  

Foot Savers are their sandals and dress shoes. Still made in widths to guarantee you maximum support and fit.  The old Dress shoes may be available, order and we will check and let you know if they are not available in your size.  You may also want to look at the Clinic Shoe Catalog for dress shoes in non in depth constructions.

In all things, you get what you pay for. For the finest in support shoes and fit, choose Drew.  Drew has in recent years has become an international brand. This expansion and the fact that the old shoe makers in this country have been retiring had made it impossible for Drew to meet it's order demands. Backorders had become common place. It was difficult to impossible to find enough young workers to learn the trade, so Drew has been using  plants abroad. The quality and workmanship has remained consistent between the factories and the shoes are produced to the same standards on the same lasts, with the same components. This has allowed them to both increase production and to prevent price increases for almost ten years.   However, in the last two years we have held our prices while our cost have increased five times and shipping has gone through the roof.   Drew now appears to be moving away from their orthopaedic shoe origins and more into the comfort shoe market.  They dropped most of their orthopaedic support shoes which required hand work.  (Sewing welts, sewing soles, cutting soles, sanding and trimming soles etc.)   As the government prints more money, it has less value and component prices are rising drastically.  End result, inflation is here, same as in groceries and gasoline.   You will also notice that they have discontinued many styles, colors and in some cases sizes and widths.  This is uniform with what is going on with all companies in this economic environment.  Often these shoes are still available and so we show them in the discontinued section.  Of course, the longer they discontinued, the fewer sizes are left.

As your source for hard to fit and support shoes, we were  forced to move more to P W Minor for selection in true support shoes, welted and crepe sole shoes.  Our favorite Drew shoe, Fitter, is currently dropped and no production is scheduled.  Your substitution choice for an oblique toe shoe from Drew will have to be Fiesta.  We are told they are trying to find a plant that can do the goodyear welt and make the shoe again, but there is no inventory at the factory and it is currently discontinued.  After holding prices for three years,  Prices are slightly up.  Higher charge card service fees and discount fees, shipping in and out, as well as large price increases from the factories due to their materials and shipping cost increases have made all shoes go up.  Our prices include Shipping and Handling so there are no surprises.  We endeavor to bring you the best in quality, service and information at all times at honest prices.        RETURN TO TOP OF PAGE

1/26/01 Drew  discontinued it's leather sole goodyear welt shoe program. The old Miller Walker 71 last like Tramper, Top Hat, Toronto, as well as the 51 Service last and others likeWelcome last Chic and Plattoe Last Sara plus the Drew Rover and Rings were dropped from the line. They continue to sell their existing inventories until they are completely out.  At this time, P W Minor will be the only remaining source for women's leather soled shoes, and that will only be a couple of styles. We will sell from our inventory until we are out, sizes available are in the third column.   If you have any questions, e-mail me at tom@fittedshoe.com
