Diabetic shoes are typically designed with minimal seams or with seams placed in such a way as to minimize friction and irritation against the skin. This is crucial for preventing the formation of blisters and sores, which can be exacerbated in individuals with reduced sensation. Diabetic footwear often features wider toe boxes to accommodate any deformities or swelling that may occur in individuals with diabetes. This helps to prevent the toes from rubbing against the shoe, reducing the risk of friction-related injuries.

Diabetic footwear often utilizes materials that promote breathability and moisture control, preventing the accumulation of moisture that could lead to fungal infections. This holds particular significance for individuals diagnosed with diabetes, given their heightened vulnerability to complications pertaining to the epidermis. Specialized designs aim to minimize shear and friction, reducing the risk of blisters and calluses. This preventive approach aligns with the overarching goal of diabetic footwear to protect the foot from potential harm. The market is dynamic, witnessing several trends that shape product development and consumer preferences.
