My father has diabetic problem and have some foot issues, Doctor recommended him to wear indoor/outdoor shoes/slippers from now on. I am looking some good store to find some good shoes that will fit him, I wish you guys can help me??

I want some decent and comfortable shoes that he can wear without any harm and can walk or run outside easily.

My DH favorite indoor/outdoor shoe is from Merrell


This is not a diabetic rated shoe. More for outdoor hiking/running. Comfortable and very durable.

My parents were both diabetic and if he has insurance he may be able to have his dr write a script for diabetic footwear that can be custom fitted for him and have it covered. We took my dad to an office that does orthotics/prostetics and they spent plenty of time to fit him with shoes that wouldn't rub and cause any problems. May want to check into it for him. My dad got 1 new pair every year from his insurance.

My husband is a diabetic. He wears the Wicked Good Moccasins from LLBean. They have that wonderful lambswool lining and good soles that you can wear outside. I have a pair too and it feels like you're walking on a cloud.

I prefer wearing a clog type shoe (slip on). I also buy diabetic socks that are softer and flex more at the ankle and don't cut off circulation.
