A good pair of shoes can help anyone feel better as they go about their day. However, for people with diabetes, who are at risk of impaired circulation and nerve damage to their feet, a good pair of shoes is essential.
Here are some shoes for diabetics that we like.
These shoes are easy to put on and take off, and the forefoot straps make them very adjustable. They also come with three pairs of removable insoles to provide maximum comfort or the space needed for customized orthotics.
Designed with a lightweight sole and extra cushioning, these sneakers from Orthofeet aim to enhance comfort and ease pain. The company also puts its money where its mouth is, offering a 60-day test period with each purchase and guaranteeing customers their money back if they’re not satisfied.
These athletic shoes have a roomy toe box allowing for better circulation, and their front rolling forefoot design provides smooth movement and stability. Gravity Defyer also offers a free pair of CorrectiveFit orthotic insoles in each box.
These boots are engineered with advanced footwear technology to alleviate foot and heel pain and designed to “feel like the best sneakers.” As with Orthofeet’s sneakers (see above), you can try them out for 60 days and get your money back if you do not like them.
Do your feet swell throughout the day? If so, these shoes may be a good fit for you. They come with an adjustable Velcro design, allowing you to adapt the fit to the size of your feet. The company does suggest you purchase a pair one size up to provide maximum comfort.
These slippers protect feet from injuries with a gel insert and fleece lining and help avoid falls with their toe box and rubber sole. The slippers are available in pink and camel. See our full review.
