Something we all need is comfortable footwear on our feet, whether it's boots, trainers or slippers. Everyone has 'bad days' with their feet with blisters and sores, especially if you've walked in them for too long or if they're new shoes. It's worse for people who diabetic. Bloody sugars are poorly controlled and that can damage many parts of the body, including the nerves and vessels that go to the feet. This is one reason why it's so important for someone who's diabetic, to wear diabetic footwear. It's also important to make sure you always wear footwear and rarely walk barefoot as this also increases a chance of foot problems. There are choices of Diabetic slippers that may be great for wearing indoors.

With the poorly controlled blood sugars, you may lose some feeling in your feet. This could mean you have an increased risk of developing foot problems. As someone who doesn't have diabetes, if they have a blister or a sore, they can feel it- but a person who is diabetic and has lost feeling in their feet may not notice or feel the sore, which then could get worse. Sometimes it can get worse and lead to amputation. Having the right footwear can help lower the risk of foot problems and promote healthy blood circulation.

Diabetic footwear are wider and deeper than traditional footwear. This is so the feet don't go against any material inside the shoe and so the feet can move freely. As this may not be a problem for a person who is not diabetic, it can be a problem and increase the risk of foot problems for a person who is diabetic.

Not only are Diabetic shoes wider and deeper to help lower the risk of foot problems, they also provide better stability and reduce the likelihood of twisting your ankle or tripping.
