On the heels of the launch of Puma’s first ever shoe, the new Cavalier Safety, the company is making a push to get its footwear to the diabetic community.
The new footwear line features a new, custom-designed boot, a new sock, a special boot liner, and a new footpad.
These shoes are available for purchase on the company’s website and on footwear retailer, Slippers Footwears.
In an interview with Fast Company, Puma founder, Jordan Haggerty, spoke about his company’s approach to helping the diabetic market: “We’re just like anybody else.
We have an entire shoe line.
And we don’t have a specific product that we make for everyone.
But we think that our customers want us to make a product that is appropriate for their body.”
Haggerties company also includes a new diabetic-friendly sock and footpad that will help to reduce the risk of developing foot infections from sneezing and sneezes, as well as an extra footpad for those who are very active.
While the shoe is available for online ordering, Purais new footwear will be available in stores.
According to the company, the footpad will be the first to be made specifically for the diabetic population.
“People with diabetes are not only the most common foot type, but also the most susceptible to foot infections,” Haggeries founder explained.
“So if we can improve the comfort of our product, we can help increase the likelihood that we will be able to provide the diabetic customer with the best possible foot care for the long term.”
According to Haggery, there are about 200 million adults in the US with diabetes, and it is estimated that about 15 million of them will develop diabetes during their lifetime.
“We know that when we give people more foot care, they are more likely to get the health care they need to get better,” Hagan said.
“And we want to make sure that we are providing the best products that we can.”
