Blisters… cuts… splinters… If you’ve got diabetes, these common foot problems can easily become chronic sores that can lead to something worse. Shoes that are too big can be as bad as shoes that are too tight. “If the shoe is too big, your foot will rock in there and you’ll get blisters,” explains Michael Trepal, DPM, vice president for academic affairs at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine in Manhattan.

Check that no seams or hard edges are inside the shoes that might cause rubbing or blisters. Choose breathable materials (leather, suede, canvas), not plastic, rubber or vinyl. Ideally, you want a cushioned insole to help decrease pressure on the bottom of the foot.
