Do you recommend anywhere particular for shoes for diabetics (good straps apparently required).

Thanks

There is that Cosy Feet place website which the diabetic clinic recommend. They are quite expensive but very good. You can get Cosy Feet slippers too.

I think lots of places sell suitable footwear

Footwear features to consider…Choose shoes that have plenty of internal space and a soft upper to prevent pressure on the toes and joints.

A lace or touch fastening will hold the foot securely and prevent excess movement.

A sole that provides good shock absorption is ideal.

Smooth internal seams are essential.

The feet may be affected in two ways – the circulation of blood to the feet may be reduced, impairing healing and increasing the chances of infection and the nerves that give sensation may be damaged.

The feet may be numb and changes to their structure may occur, such as an increase in arch height or clawing of the toes.

The choice of shoes is very important, as potential problems may be avoided by wearing the right type.

I don’t know where you are based but for as an example hotter outlet in Castleford should have a range of suitable styles

They also have online stor

It is possible for some people with type 2 diabetes to put the condition in to remission which is like reversing it so I guess like fixing it.

Oh ok thanks for the info
The suppliers I use for my foot care business recommended a brand of shoes called Dr Comfort x
My mother in law has type 1 and she always wears sketchers, but she has tiny feet so has trouble getting shoes
Very helpful thanks very much everyone!
