Choosing the Right Diabetic Footwear for Your Lifestyle

Diabetic Footwear for Outdoors People

Wearing the right type of shoes is important for keeping your feet healthy. Walking shoes and athletic shoes are good for daily wear. They support your feet and allow them to breathe. 

  • Never wear vinyl or plastic shoes, because they do not stretch or “breathe.”

  • When buying shoes, make sure they feel good and have enough room for your toes.

  • Do not wear shoes with pointed toes or high heels often.  They put too much pressure on your toes.

  • When buying shoes, get them at the end of the day when your feet are the largest.  This will ensure they have the best fit.
