    Other Information

    The footwear designed for diabetics are deeper and wider than standard footwear. This is necessary so they will have room for pedorthics, insoles designed just for diabetics. These are designed to prevent unequal weight distribution and rubbing.

    There are also diabetic footwear with modifiable closures. This will help make them fit better. Air circulation can be provided by uppers or fabric. Note that diabetic shoe inserts have to be prescribed by the doctor.
