Sometimes, it seems like men get the short end of the stick in terms of shoe and sandal styles, no? Especially when you’re looking for something specific like men’s diabetic sandals. At SAS, we’re changing the narrative about footwear and offering shoes and sandals that are comfortable, cool, and supportive all at the same time. We want everyone who suffers from foot conditions to have multiple options to choose from so you can find a shoe or sandal style you like rather than sacrificing style for something that only suits your needs.
When shoe shopping, be mindful of some of the foot symptoms associated with diabetes, including:
- General foot pain
- Foot ulcers
- Fungal infections
- General nerve damage
It’s critical to know what to look for, especially when shopping for men’s diabetic sandals. Here are the boxes Healthline suggests your next pair of shoes or sandals should check:
- Footwear should be lightweight—your feet should be able to move and breathe
- Look for shoes crafted from a flexible material such as leather, canvas, or suede
- Shoes should feature a shock-absorbing sole which will help relieve foot pressure
- Keep an eye out for customizable sandals that you can adjust as needed for swelling or discomfort throughout the day
- Look for as much overall foot support as possible
- Ensure the sandal fits well and matches your unique foot shape
With that, here are a few of our best men’s diabetic sandals for your consideration.
1. SAS Bravo
This men’s diabetic sandal has comfort written all over it. The genuine leather outer is lined with a super soft padded cushion that surrounds the foot. It features three adjustable straps with buckles so you can customize your perfect fit, while an insole wrapped in “Super Suede” hugs the arches and curves of your foot. If a comfortable sandal is what you’re after, Bravo may be the style for you.
