I've been wearing sandals all summer. I haven't worn those shoes all summer, but I've never had any pain in them before. Still they are hitting the trash bin! I'm going to look for some new walking shoes. Anyone know a good type to look for (those were Nike Air walking shoes... so not that kind for sure). I read that New Balance is good for diabetics??? If anyone knows, let me know.
I like Ryka for walking the treadmill. The toe box is roomy and the heel doesn't fall off. I'm also wearing Ecco Extreme Janes for general walking- mall, errands etc. They have a cute mary jane appearance, are cut large in the toe, and adjust to your foot and heel with velcro straps. Both can be worn with or without socks. I did Ikea top to bottom and 1/2 of the Mall of America in them (same day) and didn't even have tired feet.
Thank you for all the replies! I'm going to look for new walking shoes after my next paycheck. My heels are always my biggest problem! My right heel seems to always have an ugly callous looking thing on it. For some reason, it's always only on the right foot! Yuk! I use the heel scraper thing (it's like a big emory board), but it always looks cracked even after filing it. It seems like my feet are a lot more sensitive now since the diabetes. I have to wear nice shoes to work because of the dress code, but I can't manage pumps! I have to wear something open toed and open back. I guess this is all part of this disease??????
