Are you diagnosed with diabetes?
Poorly controlled blood sugar can damage many parts of the body, including the nerves and vessels that go to the feet. Because of this, people with diabetes have an increased risk of developing foot problems. Wearing specially designed shoes can help reduce risk and promote healthy circulation in your feet. Regular shoes often cause pressure in the forefoot area or the back of the shoe as they are often constructed from firm materials and in a way that might irritate bunions, the toes, or back of the heel. Extra depth design that provides a pressure-free fit and can accommodate thick orthotic inserts.
