Diabetic Shoe Break-In Instructions

Just like most other shoes, you will want to take some time to break in your new shoes before wearing full time.

Just like most other shoes, you will want to take some time to break in your new shoes before wearing full time. Here are our instructions:

- In the comfort of your own home, put your shoes on and walk around for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

- After the short wear, remove your shoes and socks, and examine your feet to make sure there are no signs of irritation, redness or dark spots.

- Wear your shoes indoors a few hours a day over the next couple days, while continually checking your feet for signs of irritation.

- Once you feel comfortable that your new shoes aren’t causing any issues, go ahead and begin wearing them outside, full-time.

- It is very important to continue to perform daily exams on your feet during and after the break-in process.

In the event that there is ever any irritation, redness, or darks spots on your feet during or after the break-in process, discontinue wear of your shoes and contact your foot care specialist immediately. If you’re a Medicare beneficiary, you may have received three pairs of heat moldable or custom inserts to last you the year. Thus, your inserts should be swapped out every four months.
