Comfortable Men's Walking Shoe - Drew Surge

Drew Surge

Like the Jimmy Soul song is famous for saying:
If you want to be happy for the rest of your life
Never make a pretty woman your wife
So for my personal point of view
Get an ugly girl to marry you

Don't rule out giving this plain-Jane shoe a try!
The Drew Surge might be the 'ugly girl' in your life that turns out to be the best thing that ever happened to your feet.

If you are looking for a 'go-to' comfortable shoe that is perfect for all day wear - this shoe may be perfect for you. The shoe has a thick, rigid and non-flexible sole with a wide base that limits motion through any painful, arthritic joints as you go about your daily activities. The extra-depth toebox is perfect for accommodating painful bunions and hammertoes. Less pressure on the toes means less pain and it has the added benefit of helping to slow the progression of painful bunions and hammertoe deformities. There is also excellent rearfoot control, which helps with decreasing mechanical strain of the knees, hips and lower back. 

The Drew Surge will accommodate a custom-molded orthotic or an Ankle-Foot Orthosis (AFO). If you have an AFO, I recommend that you purchase this shoe at the store and take the AFO with you to make sure that you get a proper fit. The Drew Surge also comes in extra-widths so it is a great choice for patients who have wide feet or issues with mild to moderate swelling. 

The Drew Surge should also be comfortable for anyone who works on retail or concrete floors all day and it should help decrease any knee, hip and lower back pain. 

The Drew Surge is recommended for patients with:
*Tailor's bunions
*Morton's Neuromas
*Rheumatoid Arthritis
*Hallux Limitus (limited range of motion through the 1st toe joint)
*Hallux Rigidus (no motions through the 1st toe joint)
*Previous Lisfranc's Injuries
*Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain)
*Achilles tendonitis
*Hypermobility / Ligament Laxity

The Drew Surge is not recommended for patients with:
*Muscle Weakness (check with your podiatrist)
*Charcot-Marie Tooth Disease 
*Charcot Foot 

If you have any of these conditions, get approval from your podiatrist before you wear these shoes as severity of these diseases can greatly vary:
*Peripheral Arterial Disease (poor circulation)
*Peripheral Neuropathy (nerve damage)
*History of Ulcerations

Hope this was helpful!

Great review! While the outside might not be the most stylish shoe, I do think it looks comfortable and durable, which is much more important when dealing with conditions affecting the feet.

Yeah I agree that this shoe brand is gaining loads of popularity from last couple of years as it provides high quality and comfort shoes at affordable prices. Soon it will be counted as among the top Brands of boots if they kept their price in same range without sacrificing quality.

On June 8, I fell over a 4foot wall onto a concrete yard fractured the second cuneiform bone with sublaxation of the 2nd metatarsal increasing the space of joint between 1st and 2nd metatarsal. Surgery was suggested but after the CT scan, my orthopedist decided that the injury would heal without surgery but he also said that a few years down the road I might require surgery to fuse the bones because arthritis might develop in the joint.I am 50. I was in a splint and bandage for 3 weeks and I am presently in a CAM boot for 4 weeks and going. My doctor said that I will be in the boot for 3 months. I will be seeing the doctor next week and I am hoping that I will be allowed to bear some weight on my right foot. What shoe would you recommend to wear with the CAM boot. I own a pair of Alegria Paloma. I am home because I am in a professional where I am on my feet all day. Also do you have any suggestions for making the air boot more comfortable?

Hi Vegansoul,
I'm sorry for the delayed response. I'm also sorry to hear that you've suffered an injury. I would recommend the New Balance 928 with a custom-molded orthotic for at least 2-3 months after you get out of your CAM. You can get a letter of medical necessity from your podiatrist stating that you need to wear the NB 928 at work until healed. You can get the NB 928 in black leather which blends in a better with dress slacks. You can also try a Danko Professional Clog with rearfoot control (not a mule). Check out my article on this blog entitled: Shoe recommendations for patients recovering from a Lisfranc's fracture. It offers much more in depth information.
Best wishes!
