FootSmart, the foot and lower body health expert, has teamed with The Podiatry Institute to bring you tips on what to look for when purchasing a diabetic shoe:

  • Your diabetic shoe should have a high and wide toe box to prevent chafing and pinching that can harm the toes.
  • Your diabetic shoe should fit well. A diabetic shoe with adjustable closures – like Hook-and-Loop – often provide the best fit, since you can make the fit larger or smaller as needed.
    • Remember to do your shopping for a diabetic shoe in the afternoon. If you buy a diabetic shoe in the morning, and your feet swell up – as most do – in the afternoon, then your diabetic shoe will feel too tight.
  • Your diabetic shoe should protect your feet.
    • Diabetics are at a great risk for developing blisters, bleeding and lesions between the toes, so your diabetic shoe should be extra protective.
    • A diabetic shoe that is “seamless” will also take into the fact that your feet are extra sensitive.
  • Your diabetic shoe should have conforming removable insoles to give you extra support. You want removable insoles in your diabetic shoe so you can take them in our out as needed if you want a particular fit.
