What Type of Shoes Should Diabetics Wear?

Individuals with diabetes should pay particular attention to footwear, even those in the earliest stage of the disease. It is vital that the footwear meets the following objectives:

  • Shoes should relieve areas of excess pressure–not add to it. Excessive pressure and friction causes a breakdown of the skin that leads to diabetic ulcers.
  • Footwear should reduce vertical and horizontal pressure and shock. This is important for the bottom of the foot as well as each of the sides.
  • They should stabilize and support foot deformities caused by the disease. Diabetic patients suffer from conditions such as Charcot foot and hammertoes that need to be accommodated. Shoes should relieve the pain and decrease progression of these ailments.
