Diabetic Shoes

Special prescription footwear is available for diabetics, including custom-made shoes, healing and post-operative shoes, in-depth shoes that accommodate orthotic inserts, external shoe modifications to absorb shock and add stability, and custom orthotic shoe inserts. Custom-made footwear and orthoses are molded from a cast of the patient’s foot and incorporate modifications for deformities, as well as relief from pressure.

Shoes and inserts are often covered by most insurance companies for people who suffer from diabetes and have advanced diabetic foot care needs.
