My grandmother has diabetes. One of the symptoms she has is swelling feet. This is a common condition that goes along with the disease. It seems like her feet are swollen much more than they are their normal size.
One day when she was at the drug store, she was talking with her pharmacist about her condition and he suggested she try a special type of shoe that was designed for people with diabetes. The shoes are beneficial in several ways, including that they help promote good circulation in the feet. They allow the feet to breathe and provide good support, too.
Originally, diabetic shoes had a basic design and there was little variety in color or style. However, that has changed, so finding a pair that suits your taste is easier than it once was. Also, someone came to my grandmother's house and thoroughly measured her feet, so the shoes would fit perfectly. After the measurements were taken, she had to wait a couple weeks before she received the shoes through the mail.
