Diabetic / Therapeutic Shoes
There are several factors to consider when choosing the best shoes for diabetes, including the following:
Fit: It is important to choose shoes that fit well and provide plenty of room for the toes. Shoes should also be wide and deep enough to accommodate custom orthotics or inserts, if needed.
Support: Look for shoes that provide good arch support and cushioning to help reduce pressure on the feet and improve balance and gait.
Breathability: Choose shoes that are made with materials that are breathable and moisture-wicking to help prevent foot infections and blisters.
Durability: It is important to choose shoes that are well-constructed and able to withstand daily wear and tear.
Style: While function is the most important factor, it is also important to choose shoes that are stylish and comfortable to wear.
Some examples of good shoes for diabetes include sneakers, loafers, and oxfords. It is generally best to avoid high heels, flip-flops, and other shoes that do not provide good support and cushioning. It is also a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or a footwear specialist when choosing shoes for diabetes.
