I attained, via Medicare/Medicaid, my pair of the Pedors that are the white neoprene stretch walker with speed laces at the Orthotic /Prosthetic Clinic wear I get my A.F.O.s . I can only receive 1 pair of diabetic/medically related shoes once a year so they can be covered by my insurances. I live a sedentary life due to Muscular Dystrophy, Diabetes and other ailments. There is no way that these shoes should be wearing out so soon since I got them less than 3 months ago. I am appalled at the quality of the workmanship and of the materials. The soles are wearing off and the tread is very slippery even on a variety of surfaces. I almost slipped while wearing the shoes, while walking in the rain on a paved parking lot. I am afraid of slipping. I realize that on wet surfaces that there is a possibility of some slippage but not to this extent. My foot nearly slipped off the car brake while driving. The fabrics or the shoes also stain easily and don't come clean with numerous methods of cleaning. I am very disappointed.
