We love YDA trainers.
They are our top footwear recommendation for anyone with foot problems or illnesses that require special foot care, such as diabetes.
Their innovative design and patented technology offer unparallelled comfort, protection, and support. They work with your body’s natural movement to reduce fatigue, absorb impact and provide you with greater natural energy.

However, high performance comes with a premium price tag.
The YDA’s are a pricey trainer. We don’t recommend them lightly. We feel they are an extremely worthwhile investment and provide invaluable support to your feet at at a time when it is utmost importance.
That being said, we understand that, for some, their price may be a little above their budget.
For you, we have good news.
You may not have to pay full price.
It’s likely you can claim tax relief when you purchase your trainers, saving you the cost of VAT – a sizeable saving!
You see, individuals who are disabled or chronically sick are eligible for VAT relief prices. An individual is chronically sick if they:
- Have a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term effect on their ability to carry out everyday activities
- Have a condition that doctors treat as a chronic sickness (like diabetes, for example)
The following conditions may also qualify you for VAT relief in some circumstances; Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Oedema, Heart Disease, Stroke, or any terminal illness.
A temporary injury such as a broken leg would not qualify you.
If you are not sure whether you qualify please ask your medical advisor, as we are not able to give medical opinions.
So how do you claim the tax relief for your YDA trainers?
Go onto our site, create an account and tick the “I qualify for VAT relief checkbox” and specify which condition applies to you.
After you select your trainers (or any of our items that show ‘VAT relief available’ prices) you will see an icon that will approve the discount before checkout.
There’s a reason YDA are the number one best-selling trainers for diabetics worldwide.
Everything in their design is considered, form follows function, and they are second to none in their field.
