Diabetic Shoes Q & A

What are diabetic shoes?

Diabetic shoes are designed with the special needs of diabetics in mind. Since diabetes affects blood circulation, decreases your body’s ability to heal, and damages nerves, it’s important that you have shoes with plenty of cushioning to protect your feet.

Dr. Comfort diabetic shoes are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association and designed with advanced technology and comfortable materials. These premium shoes are designed to:

  • Decrease friction
  • Promote blood circulation
  • Relieve pressure on your feet

In years past, diabetic shoes had a reputation for being bulky and unflattering. But the Dr. Comfort line of diabetic shoes are made with fashion-forward designs, so no one has to know you’re wearing diabetic shoes.

Which type of diabetic shoes do I need?

The expert podiatry team at Desert Foot and Ankle recommend diabetic shoes for all men and women living with diabetes. These versatile shoes are also ideal if you have Morton’s neuroma, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, bunions or hammertoes, to name a few.

Your dedicated podiatrist helps you select from a wide variety of specialized shoes that are tailored to help with your specific condition. Depending on your needs, foot shape, and desired look, you might need diabetic shoes that have:

  • Rocker soles
  • Molded insoles
  • Heel and sole lifts
  • Medial arch support
  • Hook and loop fasteners

It can be overwhelming to select the right type of diabetic shoes, especially if you want multiple pairs for different purposes — like work shoes and gym shoes. You can get the help you need at Desert Foot and Ankle.

How do I order diabetic shoes?

During your comprehensive foot evaluation at Desert Foot and Ankle, your podiatrist helps you find the best diabetic shoes to fit your lifestyle. Before ordering your diabetic shoes, your podiatrist may:

  • Measure your feet
  • Perform a foot and ankle examination
  • Ask about any physical limitations, like an inability to bend down to tie your shoes

Since Medicare or your private insurance plan may cover your Dr. Comfort diabetic shoes if you have diabetes, the team at Desert Foot and Ankle help you with the entire ordering and fitting process.
