I know that if you are 50% or more Service Connected that VA would provide the shoes. But you should ask your VA Gatekeeper to write a prescription for them and see what happens.

Yes, the VA does provide diabetic shoes. My husband's VA PCP ordered them. They are important for protecting the diabetic patient's feet. Don't delay in asking for them.

Morgan,

Do you know if the shoes are SAS shoes? Do you know if there is a difference between SAS and diabetic shoes? I think SAS may be just a name brand but I'm not sure.

Thanks,

I checked and the brand on his shoes is "Apex." They are getting fairly old, so the VA might have a different brand now. SAS is a name brand shoe.
