"Shoes are very important for everyone but they’re especially critical for people with diabetes, to help them protect their feet and prevent injury, especially if they are experiencing loss of sensation (neuropathy). The right shoe and fit can help prevent the development of corns, calluses, blisters or wounds that can become infected and put the foot at risk of amputation." - Wounds Canada
