Diabetic socks are specially designed socks to reduce pressure in the lower leg and foot and prevent blistering on the skin surfaces
These socks are typically non-elastic and seamless. The non-elastic feature is to prevent constriction due to common feet swelling tendencies. The seamless design is to minimize friction to the nerves and minimize neurological discomfort and pain. These socks simply fit well to prevent restrictions in the calf from a tight sock line that can limit circulation.
All of our diabetic socks have all these features to protect your feet and provide maximum comfort.
