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!)
Here are a few of the diabetic shoe brands we love:
If you like to hit the trails or go for walks around town, this shoe will provide stability no matter where you are. It’s also made from flexible material and memory foam cushioning.
These sneakers are designed with a wider forefoot and heel base to provide balance.
Besides looking great with a suit, these leather shoes promote natural foot motion.

These lightweight slippers come with a gel insert for added comfort and a toe-box for extra protection.
