The Shear Comfort DiabPro is short for Diabetic Protection – Professional protection for feet. This design has a narrower sole width than other styles by Shear Comfort footwear and a posted support at the heel.
This pressure 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. It has been designed for active users who use the boots when walking around the house or outside, making it suitable for diabetic people.
The narrower sole and reduced bulk gives the boot a sleek look. The Two Velcro straps across the middle of the foot fasten the boot securely across the top and can be adjusted to accommodate swelling.
The Seams have been placed on the exterior for skin protection and softness, and the sole can be built up with a rocker pad if required to assist in adjusting the gait pattern.
Made with natural properties of fabric-backed medical sheepskin wool, unique to Shear Comfort, ensures that comfort and protection is provided to the foot as well as accommodating to all foot shapes. It also features a ridged, non-slip rubber sole for added stability when walking.
The moisture dissipation qualities of the wool ensure any perspiration is effectively wicked away from the skin protecting delicate skin from friction.
All Shear Comfort products are machine washable and are guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes. Available in sizes XXS, XS, S, M, L, XL right through to XXL – size guide featured below.

Shear Comfort is as easy to care for as your regular clothes.
All Shear Comfort sheepskins have the ability to be washed at 80° C, effectively killing bacteria without shrinkage. Our sheepskins are warrantied against being washed 50 times at this temperature without any detrimental effects to the item. For best use we recommend using Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner.
Shear Comfort products may be tumble-dried warm, without exceeding 60° C. To air-dry Shear Comfort overlays, hang fleece-side down and away from direct sunlight or heat sources.
To air-dry Shear Comfort footwear or targetted protectors, release all fastenings and place fleece-side down on a drying rack and away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

Specific Washing instructions
As our Shear Comfort Original items are backed with natural sheepskin, they require a slightly different washing technique from the XD1900, which is backed with fabric.
Please follow the washing instructions for your chosen item.
Shear Comfort Natural Sheepskin
It is recommended that Shear Comfort natural sheepskin items are washed with the Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo with conditioner, which contains antibacterial tea tree oil and is effective against dust mites. If an alternative is used, it must be a non-ionic liquid detergent which has no enzymes, phosphates, peroxides, alkali or bleach.
Domestic washing instructions
On a gentle cycle, wash your Shear Comfort product with approximately 20ml of Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent. Water must not exceed 80°C.
Industrial Washing instructions
Wash on a gentle cycle wash for approximately 10 minutes in hot water up to 60°C using Shear Comfort shampoo or approved detergent.
Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in warm water at approximately 35°C
Wash on gentle cycle without detergent for approximately 8 minutes in water up to 80°C for thermal disinfection.
Rinse for approximately 3 minutes in cool water.
Shear Comfort XD1900
Shear Comfort XD1900 does not require special shampoo, and can be washed with normal household detergent up to a temperature of 80°C, although you can use Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo to condition the wool and utilise the fungicidal and mitricidal properties of the shampoo.
XD1900 products can be laundered in the same way as Shear Comfort Natural sheepskins.
