See how our panel of podiatrists and experts has answered consumers' questions:

Q: I have diabetes and I’m looking for a good shoe to wear to work. What are some of the features I should look for in a diabetic shoe?

Arnold, Illinois

A: Arnold, that’s a great question. Diabetics have very special needs when it comes to their footwear. Some of the features you should look out for include: flexibility or stretch, cushioning, added depth and removable insoles. Visit Orthofeet’s diabetic shoe section for footwear that meets these requirements.

Q: I exercise and run on a regular basis and think I may be developing a heel spur. What should I do?

Debra, Connecticut

A: Debra, it sounds like you may need to make an appointment with a local podiatrist in your area. Heels spurs are abnormal growths of bone on the bottom of the heel bone that can cause ongoing foot pain. If you are noticing this type of growth, see a doctor immediately.
