Diabetes is a dangerous, chronic disease that frequently causes foot complications. Diabetes patients are at risk for amputation due to the serious complications of foot ulcers. Shoes made specifically for people with diabetes might greatly reduce this issue. It is crucial to wear shoes that are specifically made for the patient based on their anthropometric measurements and the evaluation of foot damage. The foot anthropometric and foot damage study results of 295 female diabetic patients at Khoai Chau District Medical Centre, Hung Yen Province, and the National Hospital of Endocrinology of Vietnam are presented in this research. The results showed that there were differences in measurements of height, width, and foot circumference between the two groups of patients. This discrepancy, which is independent of age, is caused by the level of problems or injuries to the feet. Women with diabetes often experience worsening foot injuries over the course of the illness. According to the level of foot complications, up to 96.69% of female patients with diabetes require “Extra Depth Diabetic Shoes”; 17.9% of patients needed “Custom Molded Inlays/insoles”; 3.1% of patients need to use “Custom Molded Diabetic Shoes” and “Custom Molded Inlays”.
