When it comes to finding the perfect footwear for individuals with diabetes, comfort and support are of utmost importance. FitVille is well known for our dedication to foot health, offering a range of diabetic slippers that combine style, functionality, and the ultimate comfort. Let’s take a look at the features we should look for in a pair of quality diabetic shoes.
Roomy Toe Box
One of the most important features of diabetic shoes is a spacious toe box. A wide and deep toe box with high instep allows the feet to move freely and reduces the risk of pressure points, blisters, and ulcers. It provides ample space for the toes to spread out, accommodating any swelling or deformities that may occur in the feet.
If you’re looking for shoes with a roomy toe box, FitVille EasyTop Diabetic Slipper offers up to 4E of width that is wide enough to fit most swollen feet. Also, it offers exceptional comfort and support with its EVA sole and adjustable Velcro strap for easier slip on & off. If you don’t want diabetic shoes, maybe diabetic slippers would be a great alternative to go for.
Diabetic shoes should include a cushioned insole that provides adequate support and shock absorption. The insole should be soft, yet supportive, to help distribute pressure evenly across the foot. It should offer cushioning for the heel and arch, reducing the risk of foot pain and discomfort.
The FitVille EasyTop Deluxe Dress Shoes feature the industry-leading OrthoLite® insole that’s breathable, moisture-wicking, shock-absorbing, cushioning, supportive and antibacterial.
Proper arch support is crucial for individuals with diabetes, as it helps maintain proper foot and body alignment to reduce strains on the arch. You would need to look for shoes with built-in arch support or those that have the room to fit in inserts with arch support. A decent arch support promotes better stability, balance, and helps prevent fatigue.
The sole from FitVille EasyTop Recovery Sandals is made of EVA foam with extra arch support to help distribute your weight evenly and alleviate pain.
