Best Shoes for Neuropathy

As neuropathy affects the sensation under your foot, your balance and your muscle strength, it is essential to make sure you have the best shoes for Neuropathy.

The best shoes for neuropathy have a stable but cushioned slow, low heel drop and wide base. 

A stable sole helps with balance and control while walking, and additional cushioning helps to absorb impact when walking or standing.

A low heel drop refers to the height of the shoe at the back compared to the front. When there is a minimal difference, it ensures an even distribution of force across the floor.

A wide base provides adequate space for your toes to spread and a wider support base.

3 Best Shoes for Neuropathy

Skechers Max Cushioning Elite Shoes for Neuropathy

We recommend the Skechers Max Cushioning for its lightweight cushioning, low heel drop and slip-in heel.

The cushioning provides greater comfort when walking or standing, while the low heel drop ensures an even force distribution.

The Skechers are casual shoes that can be used for everyday use and the slip-in heel makes them easy to take on and off.

Hoka Arahi 6 Shoes for Neuropathy.

We recommend the Hoka Arahi 6 for Neuropathy due to its 4mm heel drop, CMVA cushioning and their J-Frame support.

The 4mm heel drop is among the lowest on the market with such a thick midsole.

The sole of the Hoka is surprisingly lightweight despite its look, and the J-Frame support provides excellent stability while walking.

Asics Gel Kayano 30 Shoes for Neuropathy

We recommend the Asics Gel Kayano 30 Shoes for Neuropathy due to their 10mm heel drop, FF Blast Cushioning and 4D Guidance system.

While the heel drop isn’t as low as the Hoka Arahi 6, the Gel Kayano makes up for it as one of the best stability shoes on the market.

The 4D Guidance system provides a wide base under the foot with a medial arch support to guide your foot.
