Why Apex Diabetic Shoes?
Individuals with diabetes are at a higher risk of foot health complications such as injury, ulceration, infection and even partial and total amputation. Many other health complications can be associated with diabetes. For example, diabetes disrupts the vascular system, affecting many areas of the body such as the eyes, kidneys, legs, and also, feet. People with diabetes should pay special attention to their feet. That’s why wearing appropriately sized diabetic shoes is so vital for those suffering from diabetes, and why their orthotic choices make a substantial difference in their quality of life.
Apex orthopedic and diabetic shoes provide optimal support, protection, comfort, and style in a long-lasting reliable pair of footwear. The shoes are built to provide quick relief from pain and discomfort while also protecting your foot health from the threat of foot ulcers associated with diabetes. The construction of each pair of Apex footwear shoes meets the highest standards of care for those suffering from diabetes, which is why we at the Diabetic Shoes HuB are proud to partner with such a reliable maker of durable, supportive orthopedic shoes.

Protect The Diabetic Foot Against Foot Pain and Numbness
Polyneuropathy is a condition in which a person's peripheral nerves are damaged. It’s also known for simultaneous malfunction of many peripheral nerves throughout the body. Polyneuropathy can often cause numbness in the feet that can make it difficult, and in some cases, nearly impossible to feel the rubbing and related sores that improper orthopedic shoes or poorly fitted footwear can cause. Those diabetic wounds can lead to infection and amputation. Because polyneuropathy, is such a common symptom of diabetes and prediabetes for the diabetic foot, excellence in manufacturing and materials for proper footwear are of critical importance. Apex Shoes uses the finest footwear materials in the industry, to make sure anyone wearing Apex diabetic shoes can be comfortable and confident.
Experience a Customized Fit with Layers of Removable Depth
Apex footwear has a range of shoe depths from 5/16” to a full 1/2” of space in their shoes. The shoe depth is built-in with multiple layers making proper shoe fit, and even a custom orthotic insert a reality. Do you have a foot needing wide width shoes, or perhaps you really need to find the elusive narrow width shoes, so you’re stuck with the nearly impossible task of finding a pair of shoes that are not only supportive, durable, comfortable, and stylish, but now you need to find the right width also? Well, look no further. Apex diabetic shoes are made with more widths to better accommodate the needs of diabetics to ensure that they receive great fitting shoes for even the most difficult-to-fit diabetic feet.
Something else to keep in mind with orthotic shoe inserts and diabetic footwear is to make sure to find items with proper arch support. Proper arch support helps protect your feet from tissue breakdown and accompanied pain.
Proper arch support also helps to promote body alignment while evenly distributing weight throughout your feet. When your posture and alignment are improved, foot pain is likely reduced and balance can be restored.
Special Footwear Materials & Features in Unique, Stylish Designs
All Apex shoes feature a soft, moisture-wicking lining with non-exposed seams that helps keep feet comfortable, dry and safe from irritation. The only exceptions to this are the Apex Ambulator Stretch and Aetrex Ambulator Conform styles.
That’s not all. The Apex ‘Active’ and ‘Casual’ footwear styles feature strategically-placed padding and contoured shoe inserts that provide optimal support, foot cushioning and shock absorption. These are not only essential features in protecting and pampering diabetic feet, but they’re also really comfortable so you can have the freedom to be active without worrying about your foot heath. Yes, you really can pamper your feet with a proper-fitting pair of Apex diabetic shoes.
When searching for your own pair of diabetic shoes, look for footwear made from soft, stretchy fabric or material. Leather is a great choice, as it stretches to fit your feet. Diabetic shoes should accommodate any other foot issues you have, such as bunions or hammertoes as well.
Durable, Roomy and Soothing
Apex diabetic shoes are designed to incorporate reinforced shanks for rearfoot stability when you’re walking, running, or even just standing. The higher, wider and reinforced toe boxes provide enough space and wiggle room for diabetic feet to avoid rubbing and dangerous irritation while still providing a feeling of gentle cradling within a firm foundation. Finally, the anatomically-shaped lasts invite the diabetic foot to rest in the shoe more naturally.
Not a commonly known fact, but extremely important to understand is that the opening where you put your foot through your diabetic shoe is incredibly important. The opening of your shoe, known as the throat, needs to be padded and low cut as to not rub against your ankles all day.
Comfort is key when choosing the right pair of diabetic shoes. Make sure to choose a pair that you can wear all day. Practice with your new shoes and wear them for a few hours to see how your feet react before committing to wearing them for a full day out of the house. Make sure to check regularly for swelling or signs of discomfort while you’re wearing your new shoes.
