The DiabPro, short for Diabetic Protection, has a narrower sole width than other Shear Comfort footwear, and a posted support at the heel. This boot offers the same pressure redistribution and skin protection qualities as all Shear Comfort footwear, combined with a slimline design that makes it perfect for everyday use.
The narrower sole and reduced bulk gives the boot a sleek look, and is designed for active users who use the boots when walking around the house or outside, making it suitable for diabetic people. Two Velcro straps fasten the boot securely across the top. The sole can be built up with a rocker pad if required to assist in adjusting the gait pattern.
XD1900 is medical sheep's wool unique to Shear Comfort, with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins - which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties.
This is achieved by weaving natural wool to a fabric backing, and is not to be confused with artificial sheepskins created from synthetic ‘wool.’ We use natural wool, and treat it to ensure it can be repeatedly washed up to 80°C. Plus, because XD1900 has no leather backing, it can be washed with normal household detergent.
The DiabPro Boots are sold in pairs.
