College Students with Diabetes

Living with diabetes isn’t easy no matter how you look at it. Regardless of age or gender, there are plenty of additional considerations that people need to think about. The same can be said about students in college. Education after high school is an important part of a young person’s life, and so much development occurs during this time. But can you recall how hesitant young adults can be at this point in their life? Fitting in and making friends, all while doing well in school can take a significant emotional toll on a person.

Now, add those two things together, and…wow. Imagine being in college, with diabetes. Well, for thousands of students out there, they don’t need to imagine it, because they’re living it. That’s why we love this article. It’s titled “Support for college students with diabetes” and is a great read. It does a great job in pushing to raise awareness.

Hush Puppies Shoes for Men

You know we’re all about comfortable shoes. We’re always on the search for new comfort footwear. We’re happy to open 2015 with a bang, and a new line of shoes from Hush Puppies. The premium materials combine to make the perfect mix of quality and comfort in each pair. We have a couple of pairs that we want to feature. First off, the Hush Puppies Shoes Men’s Gil which feature a genuine leather upper with moc toe design. A single hook-and-loop strap across the instep secures the foot and creates a wide opening for easy on and off. Next, we have the Hush Puppies Men’s Glen. The padded tongue and collar on this shoe creates a plush environment while fabric linings help to wick away moisture. These orthopedic shoes are approved for diabetic use and are equipped with a full length, EVA contoured footbed that can also be removed to fit personal orthotics. If you’ve tried a pair, you already know. If you haven’t, give them a shot. You won’t regret it.
