ShoeMed has curated a range of shoes, sandals, trainers and sock for diabetes. Each style offers premium cushioning and wide fitting, ideal for diabetic fittings. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can have long term implications for the feet due to neuropathy, nerve damage, and poor circulation. It is crucial that a podiatrist or foot health practitioner examines and treats your feet on a regular basis if you have been diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetic shoes should preferably be professionally fitted, offering an 8-10mm gap before the end. Shoes for diabetic feet should offer a wide fitting, as tight-fitting shoes can develop corns and the blood flow will be restricted which could cause an issue. To reduce peak pressures, the ShoeMed diabetic footwear range offers premium cushioning. Rocker sole shoes featured in this collection can help reduce pressure by encouraging the natural rolling motion of the foot. Reducing pressures on diabetic feet can help to minimise the risk of a foot ulcer.
