Diabetes is a serious condition that commonly leads to high blood sugar levels. This can damage the nerves especially in the legs resulting in a loss of feeling and decreased circulation. The risk in having a lack of sensation in the legs is not knowing when a foot injury has occurred. In addition, poor circulation results in numbness and slower recovery from wounds. Something as harmless as a blister combined with sweat can over time turn into a serious infection. Poor circulation, moisture, and open wounds on the feet are problems that diabetics have to really look out for. Our diabetic dress socks are specially made to keep the feet dry, increased circulation, minimize irritation, and for protection against foot complications arising from diabetes. We manufacture diabetic dress socks for men with the highest quality in mind. We use better materials and spend more time to create well made socks with stronger seams. More labor intensive sewing and a higher level of quality control is required to produce our best socks for diabetics.
Special Cotton and Nylon Blend Wicks Away Perspiration to Help Keep Feet Dry
Our diabetic trouser socks are carefully crafted to ensure maximum comfort. The soft cotton and nylon blend used provides a gentle and protective barrier for the feet. Cotton is a natural fiber valued for being lightweight and durable. Nylon is a common moisture wicking synthetic material. We use the optimal blend of cotton and nylon for our diabetic dress socks. When cotton is combined with the right amount of nylon, this blend has the ability to absorb and distribute sweat to the surface. This is how our diabetic socks help keep feet dry by absorbing and wicking away sweat. Keeping feet dry reduces the chances of bacteria growth, which can lead to nasty infections.
Non-Binding Sock Weave and Loose Tops to Improve Leg Circulation
The weave of the socks is located above the shaped heel. The diabetic sock weave is thin, stretchable, and allows the feet to breath. It also improves blood flow by reducing the pressure the socks puts on legs. Loose sock tops is another feature designed to promote leg circulation. Compared with regular sock tops, loose fitting tops put minimal pressure and does not constrict blood flow to the legs. The sock cuffs also leaves minimal indentation marks on your legs. Yet, there is enough support that the socks do not slip down to the ankles.
Smooth Toe Seams to Minimize Irritation
Regular socks come with large seams in the toe area. Our socks are different because we use a flat toe seam created by connecting two sides of stitches of the toe seam together with a single thread. We go to great lengths to ensure that our toe seams are carefully sewn to minimize irritation to the toes. Our sock's toe seams are soft, flat, and non-invasive to wearers. Experience the comfort and benefits of a flat toe seam compared to that of a regular bulky toe seam.
Personalized Fit for Comfort
Dress shoes in particular require a good fit. It is not a good idea to wear socks that are bulky along with dress shoes. That's a recipe for foot pain and blisters. Our diabetic dress socks are just the right thickness. It is cushioned enough to comfortable protect your feet, but not so thick that it causes a tight fit in dress shoes. Different sizes are available for a better fit. Sock size 10 to 13 is available to fit men with shoe size 8 to 12. For those who need xl big and tall diabetic socks, sock size 13 to 15 fits shoe size 13 to 15. if a good fit is desired.
When it comes to getting an appropriate fit, material comes into play as well. With a cotton and nylon blend, the combination of materials can retain its shape better and conform to the feet in a way that provides a superior fit. A proper fit minimizes problems with blisters and abrasions. When socks do not have a snug fit, it tends to bunch up and easily rubs against the skin to form blisters.
Cushioned Sole for Protection
The soles on the bottom of the socks have extra padding for more comfort. It also helps to cushion the feet from the daily impact of walking and running. At the same time, they are not uncomfortably bulky and doesn't add size to the feet. There is no need to get a bigger shoe with our socks.

For those that are concerned with darker colors hiding foot injuries, light grey or tan color would be a good choice. Other colors offered include navy, blue, and dark brown. Wearing the same color of socks and pants is perfectly acceptable. Another option is to pair socks with a complementary but contrasting color to the pants. This will make an outfit stand out.
When wearing dress socks, they should be long enough to cover the legs when sitting down. We offer two styles including crew and over the calf length. The crew length socks goes approximately half way between the knee and ankles. Meanwhile, the diabetic over the calf socks wears a couple inches below the knee. Both lengths will do the job fine. The knee socks provide more warmth and support.
