ShoesWhen it comes to staying healthy with diabetes, footwear plays a large role. Many individuals fall short on foot care and fail to wear appropriate shoes. Avoid foot ulcers and other complications by ensuring that you are wearing shoes specific to your needs.

Get your feet measured and fitted before making any purchases. Though there is no such thing as the perfect shoes for those with diabetes, there are some tips you can adhere to while buying footwear, including, shopping later in the day when your feet are naturally more swollen and at their largest. Have your shoes fitted with socks on too, and have your feet measured periodically because they change over time.

Dr. Michael Stein and Zeindelin Ahmad, DPM also suggest looking for footwear that is made of soft leather, because of its ability to stretch and conform to the shape of your unique feet. It's also important to select a shoe that has a cushioned sole for shock absorption, as well as laced shoes, since they provide a better fit and better support. Your shoes should be replaced as soon as there are signs of damage, or as areas begin to wear down.

Making smart footwear choices can help prevent or delay the onset of foot ulcers and other diabetic foot complications. Follow through on purchasing proper shoes for those with diabetes. Come on in to get your feet measured at the Foot Doctor of the East Bay in California, today! If you're at a high risk for complications and already have foot or ankle issues, you should visit more frequently. Call one of our three offices located in San Leandro, Pleasanton, or Los Gatos, CA.
