For Diabetic Footwear in Melbourne
Shoes designed for diabetics in the first instance have very few seams, stitching, rough edges ,they are soft and smooth and generally minimize the likelihood or risk of trauma to the foot caused by the shoe. In the second instance, the diabetic shoe is deep enough, often termed “ extra depth” to accommodate the diabetic foot where swelling or edema is a factor over the course of the day. In general terms, the foot is smaller at the start of the day when you put your shoes on and larger at night when you take your shoes off. For a diabetic, a diabetic shoe design should enable a shoe to adjust accordingly and be deep enough to accommodate a diabetic insert.
