Foot Ulcers are the Most Problematic to the foot
Of the foot complications from being diabetic, foot ulcers are most problematic. Foot ulcers are local skin defects with inflammation or infection. They can be caused by lack of circulation, infection, lack of protection, and improper fitting footwear. In footwear, most diabetics try to go to a comfort shoe instead of the proper shoe that is design for the diabetic or what we call “Shoes for Diabetic” or a Therapeutic shoe.
A break in the skin without proper treatment may become ulcerated. Diabetics are at a higher risk of developing foot ulcers. Heat Moldable Plastazote inserts and the proper Therapeutic shoe can be helpful in preventing ulcers.
For a diabetic foot, a wound as small as a blister as a result of wearing an ill-fitting shoe can cause a lot of damage. This is when “Shoes Diabetic Footwear” is necessary. Decreased blood flow from diabetes will often slow down the healing process. When your wound is not healing, it’s at risk for infection, and as a diabetic, your infections spread quickly. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your feet at least every day, preferably twice a day making sure to inspect the bottom of your feet as well. You are looking for signs of puncture wounds, bruises, and pressure areas of redness, warmth, blisters, ulcers, scratches, cuts and nail problems.
We have the best athletic, casual, and fashionable men’s and women’s walking styles in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the lengths and the hard to find widths. And we’re proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Anyone who requires a proper fitting width must understand that the shoes must have an extension on the sole to properly contain their foot without the foot hanging over the shoe. What that means is that every width (in a higher percentage of our shoes) will be two times wider at the outsole of the shoe. For example, if you require a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. Therefore, no overhang of your feet and a perfect base to provide all the necessary support and balance.
A comfort shoe is not always a therapeutic shoe. And also keep in mind that a comfort shoe often has very little midsection support. The lack of mid-section support allows the feet to move forward and laterally at the same time. These combined movements will increase stress to your feet.
