Diabetic, or therapeutic, shoes are specifically designed to prevent skin breakdown and other foot injures. They must meet strict guidelines in their design and function. They reduce shock, or impact, and shear – rubbing that can produce blisters and other irritations. They help to stabilize and support the foot, relieving pressure preventing strain. Diabetics are at risk for many foot complications, such as ulcers and even amputation. Proper footwear can reduce these risks. Diabetic shoes must be prescribed by a physician, and fit by a qualified individual, such as a certified Podiatrist.
