What To Look for When Picking Diabetic Footwear

Aug 15,2022 | Zekear

​Diabetes can lead to poor circulation in the feet so it is important for those with diabetes to wear supportive shoes with good fit to keep their feet protected from health complications.

For most of us, a bad shoe day is easily shrugged off. True, you can end up with a blistered heel or a painful arch, but there’s nothing to be alarmed about. However, for people suffering from diabetes, wearing the wrong kind of shoes can lead to serious health problems. This includes ulcers, rankles, and calluses, poor circulation in your lower extremities that cause pain and discomfort.

In the United States alone, just over 29 million people have been diagnosed with some form of diabetes. That's about 9.3 percent of the population as a whole. Another 8.1 million people likely have diabetes and are undiagnosed.

As a diabetic walker, you will need to pay careful attention to preventing foot problems such as blisters and calluses. Walk-related foot injuries tend to occur when a walker wears a shoe that is either the wrong type of shoe or a poor fit for their feet.

Women who have diabetic neuropathy in their feet have to take precautions to guard against wounds on their feet. An ulcer can develop under the foot in just a few hours. Left untreated, these complications can ultimately lead to amputation!

Now you know that having a perfect pair of shoes is essential for diabetes, but what to look for in a shoe if you have diabetic shoes?

  • Roomy toe box for circulation and friction control
  • Made of breathable materials, which allows sweat to evaporate and helps keep feet fresh and dry throughout the day
  • Cushioned insoles for added comfort;
  • Wider fit to reduce the chance of blistering and aid in circulation;
  • More depth for added stability.
