What is special about diabetic shoes?

Frist, I was asked this yesterday, Does a diabetic need special shoes?

Diabetes attaches one out of four feet ( who has the disease), and there is no way of determining ( in advance) who that one will be!

Our shoes and all diabetic footwear is preventive formate, and we’ll not cure diabetes, neuropathy, edema and other foot conditions, but we will prevent the disease and conditions to create no more damage to the foot.

My father passed away 5 years ago and he was a diabetic. 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 heat moldable customized inserts ( but I didn’t ) and two days before he passed on. We found two major ulcerations on the bottom of this feet. Because the inserts were gone, the disease came back and attacked his feet.

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 is made with soft material and with no protruding stitching, as sometimes even the smallest prominence can irritate and cause skin breakdown in a diabetic foot.

Non-Binding Uppers – the upper of the shoe in the front part of the foot shoe should be soft and with no overlays across the bunions to eliminate pressure points.

Stretchable Uppers – in cases where extra protection is needed it is recommended to use shoes with stretchable uppers that shape to the contours of the deformed feet and help ease pressure points.

Orthotic 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 shoes are available in a variety of widths (at least three widths – and at Dtfootwear we go a lot farther than 3 widths: 4A 2A B D 2E 3E 4E 5E 6E 7E 9E 10E 14E FOR MEN AND WOMEN STYLES) to improve fit and protection.

Functional Soles – diabetic shoes feature light weight soles with a special design that facilitates mobility.
