What Are Diabetic Shoes?

Diabetic shoes, which are commonly referred to as therapeutic shoes and extra depth shoes, can be categorized under comfort shoes or orthopedic shoes. The purpose of these specially designed footwear options is to maintain and improve foot health by reducing the risk of skin breakdown for those diagnosed with diabetes and suffering from foot abnormalities or deformities.

Improper and poorly fitting footwear can cause problems such as calluses, ulcers and blisters that can lead to infection and ultimately even amputation. A diabetic shoe must have a removable shoe insert or insole, for added depth to accommodate prescribed or custom orthotics. Together, diabetic shoes and diabetic insoles can help prevent foot injuries and complications while improving mobility. Learn more about what to look for when shopping for diabetic footwear by viewing our diabetic shoes guide.

What Are the Benefits of Shoes for Diabetics?

Shoes for diabetics are made from softer, stretchable materials designed with added features for adjustability and customization for sensitive and difficult to fit feet. Diabetes is the leading cause of lower extremity amputations not due to trauma and can be prevented more often than not with proper diabetic footwear. These 4 main features set diabetic shoes apart:

  • Available in at least 3 different widths (Medium, Wide & XWide) to fit wide and swollen feet.
  • Removable insoles to provide added depth to fit custom orthotic insoles.
  • A deep toe box that is wider and rounded at the toe to accommodate forefoot deformities.
  • Soft, non-abrasive lining that is typically seamless, breathable and anti-bacterial.

Is Diabetic Footwear Covered by Medicare or Insurance?

Yes, diabetic footwear can be covered by Medicare Part B under the Therapeutic Shoe Program. Private insurance coverage varies by provider so contact your individual provider directly for complete details. Typically, to qualify for therapeutic shoes, you must be under a comprehensive diabetes treatment plan and have one or more of these conditions:

  • Poor circulation
  • Foot deformity such as hammertoes, bunions, etc.
  • Previous foot ulceration
  • History of pre-ulcerative callus
  • Peripheral neuropathy with evidence of callus formation
  • Partial or complete amputation of the foot
