Many with diabetes find that their feet hurt, and that they hurt often, a symptom they never expected after receiving a diagnosis. If you have diabetes, the nerve damage in your feet can make your toes feel numb, which means you don’t get warned when rubbing and blistering occur. Diabetic footwear features a wider toe box, so your toes have extra wiggle room and your shoe protects your toes as you stand and walk.
This wider toe box is just one benefit of diabetic footwear. In addition to this extra room, the shoes you wear need to properly support your ankles, heels, and arches. Diabetic footwear features proper support for your feet and lower limbs, so you can feel as comfortable as possible while you walk around at home and when you go out.
