Orthopedic shoes must be seamless so that they don’t rub or chafe the feet, which can be especially painful for people with foot injuries or conditions. Also, a seamless design can help prevent blisters and other injuries to the foot that can happen from rubbing or pressure points.
Seamless orthopedic shoes are especially important for people with diabetes, who are more likely to get blisters, sores, and infections on their feet. Diabetes can cause neuropathy, or nerve damage, which can lead to a loss of sensation in the feet. This can make it difficult for individuals with diabetes to feel irritation or pressure from seams or other parts of a shoe, increasing the risk of injuries and complications. Seamless shoes can help lower this risk by making it less likely that the feet will get irritated or have pressure points.
