How Diabetes Affects Feet?

Diabetes can affect feet in multiple ways, including swelling (edema), nerve damage/loss of feeling (diabetic neuropathy), and poor blood flow (peripheral vascular disease).  With the lack of feeling in your feet and poor blood circulation, a cut or sore can be present that won't heal quickly due to blood flow. These cuts that don't heal can result in ulcers or gangrene. Also, nerve damage can make muscles in your foot not function properly resulting in too much pressure on the foot in one area. 

How Can Shoes Help With Feet Affected by Diabetes?

Shoes designed for diabetic feet offer more volume and depth inside the shoe to accommodate swelling. Some styles have stretch material or soft interior lining to help reduce rubbing or friction on the feet. Also, the insoles in diabetic shoes are supportive to help naturally align your feet to reduce pressure points. Look for shoes with a soft interior lining that is gentle on your feet and shoes with extra or double depth to allow more volume in the shoe for high insteps or swelling. 

A good shoe for diabetics will include extra depth, a supportive insoles, breathable and moisture wicking features, a wide toe box and soft interior lining.
