Their medical class 1 sanitary footwear is designed specifically for comfort, safety and therapeutic wear. Celia Ruiz does not reconfigure dress or sport shoes, they design the shoes for the sole purpose of healing and to provide comfort and a quality durable shoe.
The Celia Ruiz, CoolMax Carbon fabric, has completed laboratory tests which include biocompatibility tests approved by ISO EN 10993, guaranteeing perfect skin compatibility. This test was composed of 3 phases: cytotoxicity (toxic levels), skin sensitivity, and irritation tests. No product currently in US markets offers these certifications. The State of the art Spanish facility guarantees high quality workmanship and methodical supervision to ensure safety and quality.
Due to its adjustability, materials used and healing qualities the Celia Ruiz shoes are truly exceptional and benefit anyone with foot pathologies and or diabetes. While there may other brands that claim benefits in the diabetic or orthopedic footwear markets most are limited in what they can offer to their customers and they do not use the painstaking effort, care and process that the Celia Ruiz shoes demand.
Patients: Celia Ruiz shoes use an exclusive CoolMax Carbon lining with bacteriostatic traits, which reduces the spread of bacteria. The unique lining is highly recommended for people with skin sensitivities, circulatory disease, swelling of edema, chronic systemic diseases with repercussions on the foot, diabetics, and any other patient required to wear hygienic footwear. Celia Ruiz products are manufactured in Spain in a factory regulated by European sanitary standards and is classified as a class 1 medical sanitary device.
Ease of use and functionality assists caregivers by allowing them to dress the patient quickly and efficiently. Not all patients can easily put on shoes due foot pathologies or low mobility. Fastening shoelaces is very time consuming, especially when dealing with multiple patients.

There are many different types of diabetics, all requiring a different kind of attention. On average Celia Ruiz footwear accommodates around 50% of diabetic patients. The other half are patients that are required to wear shoes with rigid bottoms with zero flexibility to prevent the cracking or breaking of lesions and ulcers on the bottom of their feet. The CoolMax Carbon lining has clinical tests proving that it aids in the healing process, providing a wide range of benefits to most diabetics
Additional Foot Concerns
It is important to understand that Celia Ruiz footwear is beneficial not only for diabetics, but also for those suffering from other pathologies. Wearing sandals or shoes 2-3 times larger than your normal size should not be your only option. Apart from its functionality, bacteriostatic lining, and special widths, our footwear has the unique advantage for people with different size feet. The outer fabric of our shoes allows you to close the shoe at any width and on any part of the shoe. If someone has one foot significantly wider or larger than the other, they do not have to buy different pairs of shoes. The same pair works for both the healthy foot and the larger one.
