Wide Work Boots and Work Shoes for Diabetics Now Available

June 3, 2013

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Nothing is more important than proper footwear, especially when working in severe environments that subject feet to harsh conditions. This is especially true for those diagnosed with diabetes – the leading cause of lower extremity amputations and other foot related problems. Diabetics who work in hazardous or physically demanding environments requiring prolonged periods of standing, such as construction, manufacturing, machinery, industrial, security, and service industries, must put extra effort into protecting their feet. For people in these occupations, wide work boots and work shoes are even more essential than traditional diabetic shoes.

The difficulty lies in finding work shoes and boots that are durable enough to protect the toes and feet from trauma while comfortable enough to support the sensitive feet of diabetics. Work boots for diabetics like any other diabetic shoes, need to be available in multiple widths with removable insoles for added depth, and deep toe boxes that provide the protection of a composite or steel toe. Diabetic work shoes should also feature a seamless interior construction with anti-bacterial/anti-microbial properties to promote a healthy foot environment.

“The need for quality diabetic footwear in the work place, especially work boots was made clear to us by the response of our customers,” said Scott Peng, CEO of the Diabetic Shoes HuB. “We constantly received inquiries and requests for steel toe boots for diabetics, which only made sense with over 18 million diabetics diagnosed in the United States alone. I am so proud that we have listened and met the needs of our customers and the diabetes community by expanding our product offering to include heavy duty work boots. Not only are the wide work boots safe for diabetics, but many feature steel toes that are available in multiple widths with A5500 coding approved by Medicare.

“The growth and success that we have experienced has been a tremendous blessing, due largely in part to not only listening but seeking the feedback of our customers. We have also added slip-resistant shoes for various work conditions and environments where there is an increased risk of falling and slipping. Take a look at the latest models and styles of work shoes for women and thank you all for your feedback and continued support.”
