Living with diabetes requires careful attention to foot health to prevent complications such as blisters, calluses, and ulcers. At Tru-Mold Shoes, we understand the unique needs of diabetic feet and are dedicated to providing custom shoes that offer superior cushioning, support, and protection.

Diabetes can lead to neuropathy, which reduces sensation in the feet, making it difficult to feel pain or pressure that can cause sores. Poor circulation, another common issue, can slow the healing process, turning minor foot problems into serious complications. Custom shoes for diabetics are designed to address these issues by providing:

#1: Proper Cushioning and Support

Custom shoes from Tru-Mold Shoes come with extra padding and cushioned insoles that absorb shock, reducing the impact on your feet when walking or running on hard surfaces. This helps prevent the formation of blisters and calluses. They are also designed to distribute pressure evenly across the foot which minimizes the risk of pressure points that can lead to sores.

#2: Preventive Features

Preventative features in custom diabetic shoes are essential to protect sensitive feet from injuries and complications.

  • Wide Toe Box: A wide toe box provides ample space for your toes, reducing friction and pressure that can cause corns and calluses.
  • Extra Depth: Extra depth accommodates custom orthotics and allows for more room which prevents the toes from rubbing against the top of the shoe.
  • Soft Soles: Soft, flexible soles enhance comfort and reduce strain on the feet.
  • Rocker Bottom: These features help to promote a natural gait and reduce the strain on the foot that aids in the prevention of ulcers and other foot complications.

#3: Protective Design Elements

Our shoes are crafted with uppers that do not rub against the foot which prevents irritation and sores. Additional padding in critical areas further protects sensitive diabetic feet from injury. Features like rocker soles and/ or wedges on the sole can provide additional stability and support that enhance balance and comfort.
