Proper diabetic footwear is the most important aspect of your diabetic foot management. The concept of a diabetic shoe is a shoe designed to prevent foot complications. Not only should diabetics wear properly fitted shoes, they need to go out of their way to wear shoes that take pressure off of any prominent areas such as those associated with hammer toes and bunions etc. Poorly fitted shoes, along with numbness and foot deformities put diabetics at a much greater risk of diabetic foot complications. Basically anything that protects the feet, enhances function, encourages good blood circulation and ensures that pressure points are minimized, are the main characteristics of diabetic shoes.
