SPECIAL FOOTWEAR FOR DIABETICS

Foot care is fundamental for diabetics

Blood circulation in the feet may be reduced as a consequence of diabetes, causing loss of sensitivity, muscular atrophy, and pain. In order to prevent ailments, it is important to maintain good control of glycemia and to avoid factors that increase the risk of vascular and nerve injuries. Daily foot care, choosing the most appropriate shoes, and maintaining good hygiene are essential.

Useful tips:

1. Wash feet every day with lukewarm water and dry carefully, particularly between toes.

2. Wear comfortable shoes that do not pressure the feet and allow for good blood circulation.

3. Never walk barefoot at home. Always wear slippers or socks.

4. Inspect feet on a daily basis, paying particular attention to the Soles of the feet and toes (use a mirror). Ensure there are no scratches, sores, blisters, cuts, or swollen or reddish areas.

5. Do not use corn medicine or razors on your calluses; calluses should be treated by a podiatrist or medical professional.

6. Maintain toenails cut and even. Always use round point scissors and file toenail edges.

7. Keep any open cuts covered with clean gauze.

8. Do not wear foot jewellery since this can cause pressure on the ankle or toes, causing damage.

9. Control your weight.

10. Do not smoke as this reduces blood circulation in the feet.

EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, DOES NOT PRESSURE THE FOOT

Composition:

LAST: Extra-wide (D special) with the possibility for incorporating anatomic and/or orthopaedic insoles.

CUT: 100% natural lamb leather, breathable and very soft. Provides comfort and maximum adaptability to the foot without placing pressure on it.

LINING: Soft leather with gentle latex or coolmax foam that carries sweat away from the foot, keeping it fresh, dry, and comfortable.

INSOLES: Viscolatex and antishock perforated EVA. Anatomically heat shaped, immediate form recovery.

SOLES: Antishock treated polyurethane and microtech soles. Anti-slip treading with thermal insulation.

MANUFACTURE: Glove type • Strobel • Kiowa • Assembled.

Properties:

ABSORPTION: High capacity of water absorption and evaporation in order to carry humidity away from the foot, maintaining dry skin.

VENTILATION: Use of viscolatex in insoles facilitates air flow with each step as a result of the compression-decompression effect. In addition, the particular open and interconnected cell structure of the material facilitates foot ventilation.

COMFORT: Viscolatex absorbs the majority of energy released in every step, cushioning impact and eliminating joint fatigue.

EASE: Adaptation to the plantar anatomy (increased with higher foot temperature) forms a cushion which conforms to the shape of the foot without squeezing, distributing pressure and improving circulation. Particularly beneficial for individuals suffering from diabetes and the poor circulation in the extremities associated with this condition.

HYGIENE: Sanitized LX9101 insole. Creates an anti-reproductive environment in the shoe that impedes the proliferation of fungus and bacteria.
