What qualities make an insole a diabetic or arthritic shoe insole?
Posted by Austin Reiter on 16 February 2017 12:40 PM

There are two main characteristics that make an insole a diabetic or arthritic insole: closed cell microfoam or Plastazote foam top coat, and Shore 40 durometer hardness. The top coat conditions ensure that the insole provides both added cushion and skin shear protection, while the hardness rating ensures protection against skin puncture. It is important that a diabetic/arthritic insole evenly distribute weight, protect against skin puncture or skin shear due to thin skin, and provide a soft top coat to best accommodate sensitive feet.
