Shoes for Diabetics

Sandpiper Shoes are ideally suited to diabetics' needs due to their super soft leather uppers, leather lining, lightweight construction and seam free design.

Correct footwear is a very important part of providing for diabetes. The longer a diabetic goes without properly caring for their feet, the worse their feet will become.

Many people who suffer from diabetes end up injuring themselves due to not following proper foot care and all it takes is a serious commitment to learning what diabetes does to your body and your lower limbs in particular and then taking steps to minimize the risks for tissue damage.

Without proper diabetic footcare, this condition is serious enough to cause foot ulcers, irritation, infections of the flesh and bone, hammertoes, bunions, and even amputation. There is no easy way out, but simply wearing the correct footwear can make a huge difference in your constant struggle to care for your feet.

Shoes for Diabetics need to have soft padded collars, wherever the shoe is in contact with the foot. Sandpiper Shoes, have just that; the padding round the top line of the shoe ensures that the ankle and foot are protected from hard edges that could cut into the foot, or rub the foot and ankle.

Many of the styles in the Sandpiper collection, feature virtually seam-free design, ensuring that there are no seams to rub the foot, particularly at the front of the shoe.  The soft leather lining also helps to give maximum breathability, which is essential if you suffer from diabetes.  Synthetic linings - even if breathable - will draw perspiration from the foot, which can in turn cause infection which can be particularly difficult to cure for diabetics.

The specially soft 'toe-puff' in Sandpiper shoes provides an extra deep toe box to allow the toes to move freely and avoid rubbing, but ensures that there is no hard edge that can catch or cut the foot when putting your shoe on or off. 

Persons who suffer from diabetes, often find that their feet swell during the day, which makes it difficult to find suitable footwear, as in the morning the shoes are too lose, and by the evening the shoes feel tight. The Sandpiper 3in1 fitting system means that you can increase the shoe width by 2 fittings, which is ideal for achieving the perfect fit throughout the day.

Shoes for Orthotics

Sandpiper provide exceptional comfort for all wearers, and the removable insole makes them ideal for anyone who needs a shoe designed to accommodate a prescription orthotic.  Many styles feature either one or two removable insoles which may be removed to accommodate orthotics or specialist insoles.

Extra Wide Comfort Hosiery

If you find standard hosiery too tight, or you have sensitive or swollen legs, you need to try our range of hosiery that has been specially created to give a comfortable fit for the fuller figure.

The special FeatherGripTM design keeps your hosiery in place without restricting circulation or leaving unsightly marks.

Available in different versions, each in several colours, these special Tights, Stockings and Knee Highs are manufactured with extra material in the legs and feet to ensure a more comfortable and generous fitting for larger and swollen legs.
