While walking is a beneficial activity to our health, and very useful for controlling blood sugar levels, it might come with risks of injuries for people with Diabetes and Neuropathy.
Fortunately, most of these foot injuries can be prevented by paying proper attention to foot care, and by wearing Diabetic shoes.
What is the special features of diabetic shoes?
Diabetic shoes are specially designed shoes intended to offer protection for diabetic feet and reduce the risk of skin breakdown, primarily in cases of poor circulation, neuropathy and foot deformities.
Protective Interior - the interior of a diabetic shoe is made with soft material and with no protruding stitching, as sometimes even the smallest prominence can irritate and cause skin breakdown in a diabetic foot.
Non-Binding Uppers - the upper of the shoe in the front part of the foot shoe should be soft and with no overlays across the bunions to eliminate pressure points.
Stretchable Uppers – in cases where extra protection is needed it is recommended to use shoes with stretchable uppers that shape to the contours of the deformed feet, and help ease pressure points.
Orthotic Support - Diabetic shoes feature special insoles that provide support to the arch, conform to the contours of the foot and reduce pressure on the bottom of the foot.
Extra-Depth Design -the shoes are made with extra depth to accommodate diabetic insoles or orthotics, and offer loose, pressure free fit.
Deep Toe-Box - the tip of the shoe is higher, offering extra room for the toes, including deformed toes such as hammertoes.
Multiple Widths - diabetic shoes are available in a variety of widths (at least there widths - Medium, Wide, Extra Wide) to improve fit and protection.
Functional Soles - diabetic shoes feature light weight soles with a special design that facilitates mobility.
