A Bit About Why Diabetic Feet Need "Special" Shoes
A common side effect of diabetes is "peripheral neuropathy," which causes loss of sensation in the extremities. Ill-fitting shoes which
rub or pinch the feed excessively can lead to ulceration and foot injury, simply because the diabetic person does not feel the injury
until it is too late. Properly fitted diabetic shoes are very important in preventing such injuries, supports reducing pain and proper
foot care. Dr. Comfort® shoes are specially designed to fit the diabetic foot. They feature extra width and depth in the
toe box and forefoot to relieve pressure from key areas of the foot.
Diabetic shoes are often wider and deeper than regular shoes, to make room for special diabetic insoles. Insoles for diabetics are
generally custom-made for the patient's feet, to ensure proper fit and minimize rubbing and uneven weight distribution, preventing
injury. However Dr. Comfort® has designed various types of inserts which may be used in lieu of custom inserts, even
heat-molded to help with pressure distribution.
