What is unique about diabetic shoes?

First, asked this yesterday, Does a diabetic need special shoes?

Diabetes attaches one out of four feet with the disease! Is there a way of determining ( in advance) who that one will be! NO!

Our shoes and all diabetic footwear is a preventive format, and we’ll not cure diabetes, neuropathy, edema, and other foot conditions.

Still, we will prevent the disease and conditions from creating no more damage to the foot.

Protection and support needed in determining excellent footwear! Remember, when your bottom of your feet hurt – you need the proper help to offload this pain, and the only way is triple-layer moldable inserts to create that needed support!!

Yes, we give (FREE) 3 sets of triple-layer heat moldable customized inserts on every one of your purchases of footwear.

A story about my father

My father passed away 8 years ago, and he had diabetes.

We had him in our shoes for 10 years and no problems with his feet at all, and he loved our shoes and inserts. In his last 4 months of his life, he was not walking at all, and he quit wearing our shoes.

I should have got him in our slippers that will take our triple-layer heat-moldable customize inserts ( but I didn’t ) and two days before he passed on.

We found two significant ulcerations on the bottom of these feet. The inserts were gone, and the disease came back.

While walking is a beneficial activity to our health and very useful for controlling blood sugar levels, it might come with risks of injuries for people with Diabetes and Neuropathy.

Fortunately, most of these foot injuries can be prevented by paying proper attention to foot care, and by wearing Diabetic shoes.


Diabetic shoes are specially designed shoes intended to offer protection for diabetic feet and reduce the risk of skin breakdown, primarily in cases of poor circulation, neuropathy, and foot deformities.

Protective Interior, the interior, of a diabetic shoe,  made with soft material.

No protruding stitching, as sometimes even the smallest prominence, can irritate and cause skin breakdown in a diabetic foot.

No seam lining inside the shoe that will not create irritation to the foot

Non-Binding Uppers, the upper of the shoe in the front part of the foot shoe should be soft!  No overlays across the bunions to eliminate pressure points.

Stretchable Uppers, use shoes with stretchable uppers that shape to the contours of the deformed feet.  That helps ease pressure points.

Orthotic/Insert Support – Diabetic shoes feature special insoles that provide support to the arch, conform to the contours of the foot, and reduce pressure on the bottom of the foot.

Extra-Depth Design -the shoes are made with extra depth to accommodate diabetic insoles or orthotics, and offer loose, pressure-free fit.

Deep Toe-Box – the tip of the shoe is higher, offering extra room for the toes, including deformed toes such as hammertoes.

Multiple Widths:

Diabetic shoe, available in a variety of widths (at least three widths – and at Dtfootwear, we go a lot farther than 3 widths:

4 A 2 A B (Narrow for Men and Medium for Ladies) D (Medium for Men and Wide for Ladies).

Then,   2 E 3 E 4 E 5 E 6 E 7 E 9 E 10 E 14 E  for men and women styles to help improve fit and protection.

Functional Soles – diabetic shoes feature lightweight soles with a unique design that facilitates mobility.


Dtfootwear orthopedic/therapeutic shoes are biomechanically engineered with unique features that are not found in any other shoe! The most extensive selection of widths found on the internet.

The innovative shoe construction, along with the anatomical orthotic insoles, has helped millions of users improve mobility, enhance comfort from heel to toe, and get the ultimate protection for diabetic feet.

What are the differences between Orthopedic/Therapeutic footwear and Comfort and Athletic footwear? What a difference- mainly lack bi-lateral movement on your feet:

That carries sizes from 4 A to 14 E widths for Men and Women

That means Slender, Narrow to Extra Extra Extra Wide Widths for Ladies.

Narrow to Extra Extra Extra Wide Widths for Men.

That carries lengths up to a 20 for Men and 15 in Women’s length

Received 1 to 3 sets of Triple Layer Heat Moldable Customized Inserts (value up to $240) all for FREE YES FREE!!

Once you start wearing these inserts, you never go back to the conventional form of support.

Most shoes and that is athletic or comfort provide terrible inserts!

This video shows the difference between a standard shoe insert and one of our triple-layer heat moldable customized inserts.

One of the first things you will discover is that our inserts are three times thicker than standard inserts.

Our inserts come with a T-bar and metatarsal support!

With a cradling heel, and it develops to your foot because of the heat moldable effect.

These inserts designed for orthopedic/therapeutic shoes, and they won’t usually work in regular shoes.

Even if you don’t have a foot problem.

Our inserts are suitable for maintaining healthy feet, especially for all the runners out there.
