The Importance of Diabetic Shoes

Diabetic or Therapeutic Shoes are just one of the many tools you can use to fight type one or two Diabetes. I enjoy working with my diabetic shoe patients because they immediately feel better upon leaving our store because everyone is on their feet all day long. When looking for a pair of shoes, you want to make sure it has proper ventilation which allows the feet to reduce dampness and heat. Sweat often is an ideal environment for bacteria and infection to grown. You want to make sure the toe and heal curve slightly, forcing your feet to be in balance when you walk. To prevent injury to susceptible and sensitive toes, the shoe’s toe box should be high and durable. The shoe should also be lightweight and seamless to prevent any irritation.
