When buying shoes, the only part that I pay attention is the sole
September 10, 2016 2:27am CST
I always choose shoes based on the sole. I like rubber soles, and I will use my hands to rub on the soles to make sure that they are not slippery. I like soles that are stitched instead of glued to the shoes since we have rainy days almost every alternate day. I cannot afford to have the shoes disintegrate on me when I am halfway home. The only issue is that shoes that are comfortable with rubber soles stitching and made of leather are expensive. It is hard to find a pair of good shoes at less than a hundred dollars even with deep discount.

Yes, I like a thick sole too, especially when it is a rubber sole. Rubber sole gets thinner and thinner as we walk, It sure does not slip easily. Since my area rains practically every other day, I do not want to buy shoes that will turn slippery on rainy days. I like shoes that breathe too, so that my shoes will not smell even after 14 hours of wearing.

Not that hard to find, but you have to find those brands meant for special needs. I think you can check out Happy Walker. They have shoes for all kinds of feet problem, and they will customize the insole. I think it is rare for shoes to cater to the needs of diabetic patients.
