Over 2,000 Lives Improved - One Pair Of Feet At A Time

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Diabetic Shoes HuB is working to improve the health and quality of lives across the United States one pair of feet at a time. We are proud to announce that we have been able to play an instrumental part in rescuing over 2,000 pairs of feet, as the Diabetic Shoes HuB topped the 2,000 order mark earlier this year. This is quite a milestone in the company's young existence, as the importance of proper footwear and foot care is often over looked. Foot complications associated with diabetes as well as other foot diseases and arthritis present many challenges to individuals faced with such a diagnosis. Shopping for shoes can be difficult enough without having deformities, pain, swelling or just wide feet. Our vast selection of orthopedic shoes feature added and removable depth for custom orthotics, multiple widths for wide and swollen feet, deep and wide toe boxes for forefoot deformities, as well as adjustability, moisture wicking and anti-bacterial properties.

"Selling over 2,000 pairs of shoes is no easy task in a difficult economy," says Scott Peng who started the Diabetic Shoes HuB in 2008 during the recession. "The one thing that has brought us this far, is the same thing that drives us still today. The golden rule that helping others is the greatest reward. Knowing that we can make a difference through the service and products we offer, such as the Pedors Women's Classic Max Wide Shoes, gives us a reason to carry on. If not for ourselves, then for our customers, whose lives we can play a direct role in improving. Our mission is to save one pair of feet at a time, one customer at a time, by offering the absolute top-notch service and selection of diabetic shoes like the Aetrex Ambulator Conform Men's Velcro."

The culture at the Diabetic Shoes HuB is built around helping others. With the help and support of our customers, we are able to make an impact on the community. We have been able to raise donations for the advancement of diabetes research to prevent, manage and find a cure for diabetes as well as provide services and spread awareness about the disease to countless communities. We've also been fortunate enough to build a partnership with Soles4Souls, which provides footwear to those in need around the world. All these things would not be possible without the help, support and belief of our customers. Our gratitude and thanks goes out to them as we look forward to the next 2,000 pairs of feet to be saved.
