The Best Shoes for Diabetic Neuropathy

August 16, 2018

If you have diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage), it’s important to wear shoes and socks that protect and support your feet.

A few things to keep in mind when choosing diabetic shoes:

  • Ask your doctor to give you advice or help make a custom fit
  • Check to see if your health insurance will cover prescription shoes
  • Avoid high heels, flip flops or going barefoot
  • Look for a lightweight shoe will fit well with the right socks (and keep your socks dry!)
