Types of Footwear for Diabetics

Depending on the problem the footwear can be customized to a patientís requirement. If you are a diabetic and suffering from pressure sores on your feet or if you have been diagnosed to have diabetic neuropathy or your sensation is diminished you must try and wear specially designed footwear.

Diabetic footwear should also provide the following protective benefits:

1. High, wide toe box (high and wide space in the toe area)

2. Rocker Soles designed to reduce pressure in the areas of the foot most susceptible to pain, most notably the ball-of-the-foot.

3. Firm Heel Counters for support and stability.

This page shows you some of the designs of the footwear that you may wish to order.

Many die not from diabetes itself but from complications arising from diabetes.

When you're diabetic, you should take extra care about your feet and the rest of your body.
