In our last blog, we’ve covered some of the crucial features to look for in diabetic footwear and also some of the diabetic footwear recommendations from FitVille. Let's dive into the second part and learn more about other features needed for proper diabetic footwear.
Diabetic shoes should be made of breathable materials such as mesh, woven or fabric. Breathability allows for air circulation and helps keep the feet dry and cool, reducing the risk of excessive sweating, fungal infections, and unpleasant odors.
That’s why we’ve used a breathable woven upper for FitVille BriskWalk Recovery Slip-On Shoes, this allows air to circulate and keep your feet dry. Not only is the woven fabric breathable, it’s also flexible and stretchable which fits most foot shapes comfortably.
Shoes with adjustable closures, such as straps or Velcro, offer a customized fit to accommodate foot swelling or changes in foot size throughout the day. Adjustable closures also ensure that the shoe remains securely in place, reducing friction and rubbing that can lead to skin irritation.
With FitVille EasyTop Diabetic Shoes, the adjustable closure allows a customized fit, whether it’s a casual loose fit or secure fit for better stability.
Look for shoes with a seamless or minimal seam interior. Seams can cause friction to your feet, which is problematic for individuals with diabetes who may have reduced sensation in their feet. A seamless interior helps prevent the formation of blisters, calluses, cuts and other skin injuries.
FitVille EasyTop Wings V2 features an ultra-soft foam padding that reduces pressure from the exterior while the stitch-free interior design eliminates friction and prevents injuries.
A slip-resistant outsole is crucial for diabetic shoes to provide stability and a solid grip on different surfaces. This feature helps reduce the risk of slips, falls, and foot injuries. The outsole should be durable and with excellent traction to ensure safe and injury-free walking.
These FitVille EasyWalk Slip-On Dress Shoes have an extra non-slip protective outsole. The concave-convex slip resistance patterns on the bottom provide better assurance of safety.
