Do I need Diabetic Shoes?

Diabetics often need shoes that will not irritate their feet – because if a diabetic gets a sore of any kind, it can spell big trouble!

These shoes have the great benefit of being extra comfortable.

Diabetic Shoes aren’t ugly anymore

Today’s diabetic shoes vary from sneakers, to work boots, to dress shoes (some even with heels). Diabetic shoes are not the Frankenstein shoes of the past. You’ll be surprised how most diabetic shoes look just like regular shoes.

Diabetic Shoes come in all sizes and widths

Our selection of Diabetic Shoes covers just about every size foot, in just about every width. Most every shoe style comes in a wide widths, with with many available in extra-wide.

I have a hard size to find. Can I wear Diabetic Shoes if I am not a diabetic?

Absolutely. Diabetic shoes are so comfortable that many non-diabetics order diabetic shoes for that reason alone. But having just about every size and style is so much nicer when you are assisted by our professionally trained staff.

Come see our Great Selection

Hollowbrook Foot Specialists has one of the most impressive selection of diabetic shoes in the Hudson Valley.  We are one of the few places where you can come in and see a wide variety of stylish, comfortable shoes from leading brands including Orthofeet, Apis, Aetrex, and Dr. Comfort.

And, most insurance plans cover all or part of the cost of your diabetic shoes.

I have Diabetes. Do I need Diabetic Shoes?

Not all diabetics need diabetic shoes, but many do.

About 60-70% of all diabetics will develop a condition known as peripheral neuropathy, which is a loss of sensation most often found in the feet. About half of diabetics with peripheral neuropathy don’t even realize they have it.

People with peripheral neuropathy are more susceptible to problems and should wear diabetic shoes.

After being diagnosed with neuropathy, the most common foot problem is getting a diabetic foot ulcer.  Diabetics are less likely to heal than non-diabetics, and some of these wounds can take years to fully resolve.

Other diabetics with circulation problems, or deformities such as bunions or hammertoes should also wear diabetic shoes.

In order to find out for sure whether or not you need diabetic shoes, set up an appointment with us at our Wappingers Falls office.  We can do a quick, painless exam and give you tips to keep your feet healthy.
