What is unique about diabetic shoes?

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

If you are just finding out that you or someone you know has diabetes, then here are some things you need to know about diabetic footwear and its importance.

Diabetic therapeutic footwear can help deal with such foot symptoms as peripheral neuropathy, ulcerations, wounds and bruises, poor circulation, and tingling or numbness in the feet.

This list is just a few of the things a person with diabetes might encounter, and we will talk about more symptoms in this video.

Diabetic shoes offer the support needed to deal with many of these problems, and our shoes include our heat moldable customized inserts, which are so crucial in helping a person with diabetes?

You can find out more in this video and then by going to our website at www.dtfootwear.com


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 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 are what is 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 moldable inserts to create that needed support!!

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

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 heat moldable customized inserts ( but I didn’t ) and two days before he passed on.

We found two significant ulcerations on the bottom of these feet. Because the inserts were gone, the disease came back and went after his nerve endings in 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 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 -interior of a diabetic shoe is made with soft material, and with no protruding stitching,

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 – cases where extra protection needed, recommended to use shoes with stretchable uppers that shape to the contours of the deformed foot and help 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 -shoes made with extra depth to accommodate diabetic insoles or orthotics, and offer loose pressure-free fit.

Deep Toe-Box – 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 lightweight soles with a unique design that facilitates mobility.

Now let’s talk, in more detail, about the ten reasons what makes Orthopedic/Therapeutic footwear so much more advances:

1) The strongest mid-support in the shoe business.

No bilateral movement view the video above for illustrations and a midsection depth that gives you support and the maximum room in the footwear world.

Reason why orthopedic/therapeutic considered extra depth or gives your toes and your whole foot added wiggle room.

2) The most solid heel counter in the business that helps create no bi-lateral movement and the tallest heel counter in the footwear world.

3) A taller or fuller toe box to create more wiggle room and space for your toes a reason.

4) Extended bottoms to give you the fullest width and support than any other shoe line anywhere
5) A lightweight shoe for less wear and tear on your feet but with all that great added support

6) All removable arch support to put a more advanced support system or customized inserts.

YES, next time you buy a new pair of shoes, make sure that it has a removable footbed.

The reason for this is that it allows you to put into your shoes a more advanced insert that has much more support and comfort.

About 85 percent of the comfort and running shoes that you purchase.

Will have zero support in the inserts that come with the shoes.

If you can’t remove the manufacturer’s insert, then you have a problem.

Because,  you cannot put one insert on top of another insert.

WOW, the reason  that these shoes not constructed to accommodate better inserts.

So make sure you purchase shoes.

With a removable footbed so you can take out the one insert and put in a proper insert that will provide the comfort and support that you need.

For more information about appropriate inserts, you go to www.dtfootwear.com and find out how to get three sets of Triple-Layer Heat Moldable Customize inserts that we give away Free.

7) Women’s styles having a 3 to 1 combination last for better fit and support for your heel

8) Fuller forefront in the construction of the footwear to create more comfort and room for that maximum support and comfort.

9) The deeper heel counters to build more balance and support to the heel section of the foot.

10) Leather lining that creates more flexibility and breathability to the foot
