Diabetic shoes are footwear designed with the ability to adjust depth and/or width for ease in fit and comfort through the use of linings and moldable inserts, which allow the footwear to conform to the foot's shape. The flexibility in diabetic shoes is ideal for people with poor circulation, risks of infections, or diabetic neuropathy (a condition where nerves have gone to sleep due to the lack of oxygen).
Aetrex Ambulator Biomechanical Lace Great Quality but Too Wide and Too Large
April 04, 2013
Reviewer: Sprite from Aurburn California USA
Ordered a size 4.5 XW. They felt like a size 5.5 Wide.No matter what I did with the inserts it came with the shoe just got wider and longer. I inserted my orthodic and they still were too long and wide. They were not a size 4.5 like how I know a size 4.5. I was so hoping these would work since shoes are the most difficult thing I have to wear.

Tried a Naot Fisherman sandal, it looked great but did not come in a Wide. Medium was too narrow eve3n a half size larger. Ordered the Aetrex in size 12 W, width was great but sandal was a litle too long. Finally ordered 11-1/2 W, fir perfectly, looks great. I have other, more casual sandals, but wanted something with a closed toe that is a little dressier. This one fit the bill perfectly. Easy to put on with the velco strap. Recommend.

The shoe was black and gold. To make the shoe wide, extra material was added to the mid-section. No support, too much material.
