Men's Shoes for Diabetes
Features and Benefits of Diabetic Shoes for Men
Diabetics are much more likely to suffer from issues like bunions, hammer toe or Morton’s neuroma. Another common risk factor for these and other conditions are tight, narrow shoes. Diabetic footwear for men should feature a wide toe box, like KURUs. The extra space can help prevent these issues from occurring, or relieve pain and pressure on existing conditions.
Poor circulation and sensitive feet and toes are another common complaint among diabetics. While it may not be possible to treat the nerve damage itself, shoes for men with diabetes should include extra cushion and proper support. This can help protect your body from pressure and impact for less pain and more movement.

Understanding “FIT” notes:
ALL KURU shoes are sold in US sizing. IF the “FIT” note says “1/2 size small”, you should purchase a 1/2 size larger than your normal size (e.g if wear an 8, purchase an 8.5). If the note says “1/2 size big," then purchase a 1/2 size smaller than your normal size.
Common Causes of Diabetes in Men
Diabetes occurs when your body doesn’t make or use enough insulin, which leads to glucose build up for high blood sugar levels. Type 1 diabetes is usually a genetic condition, though environmental factors may play a role, and in this kind of diabetes your immune system targets insulin and destroys it. Type 2 is the more common form of diabetes. While genetics also play a role, lifestyle factors like your weight and level of physical activity are often a major component of type 2 diabetes.
Effective Ways To Manage and Treat Diabetes
Some types of diabetes are reversible while others are not, and you’ll want to work with a doctor on the best health plan for you and your needs.
When it comes to managing the pain and discomfort diabetes causes for your feet, there are several things you can do. Getting regular exercise can improve circulation to help prevent further nerve damage. Stretching and exercises to strengthen your feet can also help reduce your risk for many common foot problems.
Finally, the best men’s shoes for diabetics may help reduce pain and discomfort while making it easier to stay active. Choose diabetic footwear for men like KURUs that feature ample arch support, deep heel cups for extra protection, and complete cushion along the full length of your sole. You’ll also want a wide toe box to spare sensitive toes and counteract problems like hammer toes and bunions.
