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.
