Welcome to WholesaleDiabeticSocks.com
The most common foot issues associated with diabetics are neuropathy, poor circulation, and sensitive/painful feet. Neuropathy is a condition in which nerve damage is present. It can affect movement and the sensation to feel. In addition, other problems include sensitivity or pain in the legs. A lot of times, foot injuries will go unnoticed because of this. Besides damaged nerves, poor circulation is quite prevalent due to diabetes causing blood vessels to narrow and harden. As a result of poor blood flow, your foot cannot fight infections as well or heal as fast. When left untreated, health risks including serious complications such as ulcers, infections, and even amputation can occur. We understand how serious and detrimental foot complications from diabetes can be. That is why it is very important to take extra good care of our feet.

Loose fitting socks help to keep the feet warm, promote blood flow in the legs, and adds more comfort.

Our low friction design consists of a special blend of cotton and nylon material that is soft to help protect your feet from cuts and also minimizes abrading against your shoes. Since friction is often caused by moisture, keeping a drier feet is important. The cotton/nylon mix accomplishes this by absorbing and wicking sweat away.
- Minimize irritation - Discomfort from the toes rubbing against the sock seams is a problem that many people have. The issue stems from the construction of the toe seams. Many socks use large bulging seams on the area located around the toes. This is not the best way to make socks for sensitive feet. Big seams puts pressure and rubs against the toes. Wearing such hosiery is not an issue if its only for a brief duration. However, these worn regularly will result in painful sores and blisters that can lead to more serious foot complications. We don't do that we our hosiery. They are constructed with flat low profile toe seams that are gentle on the feet and signifcantly lessens rubbing. A lot of our customers tell us that the socks feel seamless due to the smooth seams.

This allows the legs to feel cool and provides a snug comfortable fit that prevents socks from sagging down, wrinkling, sliding, and bunching up. It does so without squeezing the lets. The well formed heel is another feature that offers a more customized fit. Socks that are too big and loose will lead to blisters. Ones that are too small and tight will put added pressure on the feet. Our hosiery is also easily fits over swollen ankles and feet.
- Control Moisture – Cotton alone cannot keep the feet dry. It is a material that is known for comfort and moisture absorption. However, taking in sweat is only one part of the equation.

Comparing Socks: Traditional versus Diabetic
Traditional tight fitting socks tends to gather into folds beneath your toes and around the heels. The thick main seam running across the top of the toes can irritate the skin and inflame sensitive pressure points. Many ordinary socks are made from pure cotton and elastic; hence they impair circulation, trap excess moisture, and begin to feel tight and uncomfortable as the day wears on.
On the other hand, diabetic hosiery are designed to offer optimum comfort. Unlike traditional socks, the diabetic sock contours to the shape of the foot. There are minimal seams in this type of medical hosiery. The material does not gather or stretch to form uncomfortable folds in their shoes. Primarily, this is because significant effort goes into creating every pair of accurately sized and well-fitting socks.
In general, diabetic hosiery is made from the finest materials. Our products are made from a combination of cotton, nylon, and spandex. Each sock is cushioned to prevent friction and are well-padded to prevent injury. Our comfortable and roomy sock tops are ideal for diabetics. They cushion the soft skin around the toes, the heels, and the soles of the feet to prevent constriction of the feet and legs. Our range of smart and stylish diabetic-friendly hosiery is designed with comfort and health in mind.
Taking Proper Care of Your Legs and Feet
Did you know that taking care of one's feet can significantly reduce the big health risks from diabetic foot complications? Many diabetics do not realize that they are putting their life in danger whenever they have a foot ulcer. This type of foot ailment is an open sore that can vary from being small and shallow to really deep. At the extremes, bad foot ulcers can go deep into your bones and foot muscles and can cause serious infections if not treated correctly. Serious infections can lead to amputation or worse yet it can take your life. That is why anyone that has diabetes with damaged nerves from neuropathy should check their feet on a regular basis. Without the sense of feeling in the feet, neuropathy can hide deeper issues such as cuts, sores, and infections.
The best way to prevent foot complications is to take proactive preventative measures and that includes wearing socks for diabetics. It is recommended by podiatrists that diabetics with neuropathy wear white colored ones so they can quickly identify any indications of cuts or infections where there is no sensation. Another smart idea is to look at one's feet once per day to identify any problematic symptoms that include bleeding, cuts, sores, abrasions, cracked skin, blisters, bruises, or swelling. In addition, it is vital to keep them clean and dry to help prevent infections from developing in the first place. Lastly, it is a good idea to avoid walking around barefooted to prevent any injuries to the feet.
Wearing Relaxed Fit Socks Can Benefit Anyone
A small percentage of people with diabetes are not required to wear diabetic medical socks. However, diabetics who experience changes in foot skin color and temperature or those with a slow-resting pulse to the rear of the inner ankle or the top of the foot should consider wearing diabetic hosiery. Diabetes often causes nerve damage, so people with damaged nerves or anyone experiencing significant skin changes or frequent foot injury may also benefit from wearing these socks. Individuals with diabetes often find their feet are extra sensitive to temperature changes. Frequent changes in temperature cause the feet to become red, spotty, swollen, irritated, and inflamed, but wearing our socks can ease this painful situation. Pregnant women suffering from gestation diabetes will find these special socks offer comfort to their swollen feet. The lightweight and breathable material warms the feet and lowers the chance of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and blood clots.
While these non restrictive socks are made especially for diabetics, anyone with other foot complications can experience leg health benefits from wearing these hosiery. Our product is well suited for those with foot pain, arthritis, edema, and deep vein thrombosis. Using our special footwear every day can help protect and promote feet health and offer more comfort.
Anyone with circulatory problems in their legs and feet can also gain from wearing our products since its main benefit is reducing the pressure on your legs and thus improving circulation with the loose fitting tops. Wearing normal ones can exacerbate circulation issues if the feet and ankles are already swollen from poor blood flow. Traditional hosiery typically constrict and leave marks on your legs.
People that participate in physical activities will find our socks beneficial to their athletic performance. It does not matter if the outdoor activity is basketball, football, tennis, running, hiking, or any other sport. Exercise puts the most stress on the feet. The impact from each step and the constant rubbing between the skin and sock requires special hosiery. Athletes demand socks that do not slip, provide cushion, and keeps their feet dry. Our hosiery can serve as diabetic athletic socks just as easily as formal socks.
Even among people with no foot problems, socks for diabetes is gaining more traction. Our no bind socks are naturally more comfortable than regular ones and are made better. They have soft materials and are loose enough not to restrict your circulation, but offers enough support so that they do not fall down the legs. They are so comfortable that many people do not even feel wearing them. They are also versatile enough to wear at the gym and the dark color ones as dress socks.
When to Wear our Socks
Even if some diabetics may not need to wear these medical socks every day, they are still useful when travelling. Our feet tend to swell after sitting for lengthy periods of time, so a pair of warm, soft-top socks makes the ideal travel companion. People with diabetes should wear their special socks the minute they step out of bed and keep them on until night time. It can be easy to step on things or injure the feet accidentally when walking around barefooted. Our specialized medical hosiery reduces friction between the sole of the foot and the floor surface. The socks keep your feet at an even temperature to allow the blood to circulate properly. Our socks are designed to be worn constantly, though they should be changed as frequently as normal ones. Remove the socks after exercising or taking part in sports. Wash the moist sweat from your feet, dry the skin thoroughly, and put on a fresh pair of socks.
How to Clean and Maintain our Socks
Taking proper care of your socks is essential to caring for your feet. Wash them as soon as possible after wearing them to prevent bacterial growth, particularly if you have calluses, blisters, or ulcers that produce discharge. We recommend washing our socks in warm water with a gentle detergent and without bleach. Tumble dry on warm setting with other delicate underwear items. Do not wash and dry the sock on high in in an attempt to kill the bacteria. Instead, high heat will cause the spandex fibers to lose elasticity, ultimately ruining your socks. If you want them to last as long as possible, hand wash and air dry them.The more delicately you handle our socks , the longer they will last. If you have no time to wash by hand, put them into a mesh undergarment bag before putting them into the washer and then the dryer. By doing so, you'll minimize fabric pilling.
The detergent you use to clean your socks is another factor to consider. It is best to use a mild detergent that is gentle for the skin and the fibers. Handwashing the socks with such a cleaner is an excellent choice. Cleaners used for undergarments also work well for our socks. These cleaning solutions are made for sensitive skin, so they will be less irritating to your feet.
When considering longevity, diabetic socks can last about a year. However, if you begin to see signs of wear, throw them away. Even though fabric pilling may seem minor, it can cause friction and produce injuries such as blisters on the feet. When you begin to see pilling on your socks, use a fabric shaver or a similar device to remove them. By doing so, you can extend the life of your socks.
