We’ve outlined the importance of wearing the correct diabetic footwear for anyone at any stage of diabetes. All too many times, when first diagnosed with diabetes, people don’t consider proper diabetic shoes and it is such a necessity. Along with many other precautions, wearing approved diabetics shoes is of the utmost importance. 

Diabetic shoes, labeled “therapeutic” or “sugar” shoes, differ from non-diabetic shoes in a few significant ways. In order to label a shoe diabetic, it will need to be medicare approved first. This means they have to meet all standards for diabetic feet. Diabetic shoes will have extra depth, extra width in the toe area, closed toes and blister and injury prevention. They come specially crafted with extra care to help with all diabetic ailments.
