Diabetic socks for men are specialized socks that help to prevent foot complications. Men's diabetic socks have loose tops that maximize blood flow to the legs. Flat seams and cushioned soles provide extra comfort and minimize irritation. The wicking fibers bring moisture to the surface to keep the feet dry.
Physicans approved men's diabetic socks is vital to diabetic foot care. Diabetes can create two main issues in our feet including peripheral vascular disease and diabetic neuropathy. Peripheral vascular disease creates issues with blood flow in the legs. Inadequate blood flow can lead to sores and longer recovery time from foot and leg injuries. In addition, poor blood flow can cause foot complications such as cracked skin, nerve damage, and ulcers. Besides peripheral vascular disease, the other major issue is diabetic neuropathy. This complication arising from diabetes is nerve damage. High levels of glucose can damage nerves in your body. Frequently, the damage occurs in the feet and legs. With diabetic neuropathy, there is no sensation in the legs and feet, regardless of hot or cold. Injuries to the feet and legs may lead to infection. Nerve damage can also make muscles weak, causing the foot to not align properly, resulting in stress.
What do diabetic socks do and who are they for?
Our mens diabetic sock are specially made hosiery that is designed for comfort and to increase blood flow to the feet and legs. Unlike traditional socks, ours do not leave notch marks on the legs like someone put a small rubber band around it. Our products have more cushion support on the bottom of the feet without affecting your shoe size. In addition, our socks help to keep your feet dry by using a breathable and moisture wicking material. That is what makes our socks truly unique. Our diabetes socks are uniquely designed for diabetics because often times the nerves in their feet are damaged and results in poor circulation. However, our socks for diabetics are great for anyone that seeks more comfort.
What makes our men's diabetic socks better than regular socks
Sometimes, manufacturers forget that socks are used to protect the feet. Most socks today are cheaply and hastily made without regard to comfort. Typically, sock cuffs consists of a tight elastic band that restricts blood flow to the legs. The seams that hold the socks together are large and intrusive, which will cause blisters. We try to change the mantra that everything is about the buck. Our products are made from high quality materials and crafted with comfort in mind. We focus on making our diabetics socks the most comfortable possible. They help diabetics protect their feet, improve blood flow to the legs, and add more comfort. One of our customer's favorites are the black diabetic socks that can double as diabetic dress socks or gym socks.
- Loose sock cuffs - Every pair of our diabetes socks men feature tops that are loose and non-constricting. We use a special design that doesn't bind but has enough support to stay up on the legs. This special feature makes for an incredibly comfortable sock as well as helping to improve blood flow in the legs and feet.
- Non-binding socks netting - Loose tops aren't the only feature in our socks that aids in foot circulation. Located in the area between the ankle and cuffs, the thin netting provides a nice close fit without being tight. The surface is covered with tiny holes that allows air to easily pass through. This helps to keep diabetes feet cool and dry.
- Padded soles - One of the main purposes of socks is to protect diabetes feet. That is why every pair of our socks come with the right amount of sole padding. What is the right amount you say? It has extra cushioning without adding unnecessary bulk. We understand how much people use their feet every day to walk or run. More cushioning means better comfort and protection. Together with your shoes, your feet can take on more impact from daily activities.
- Low profile toe seam - Foot irritation is a chief complaint with a lot of people with diabetes. Most of the time, this has to do with the toe seams. A lot of manufacturers use big protruding seams around the toe area. It is a cheap way of doing things. It is a terrible idea for minimal savings. Large seams rubs easily against the toes. It is not a problem when worn for a short period of time. However, over an extended period of time, blisters and calluses develop that lead to painful feet. On the other hand, our hosiery are made with a flat toe seam to avoid abrasions. It's near seamless toe design feels like there's no seam at all.
- Smooth cotton and nylon blend - Another way to prevent discomfort from socks is to use a quality soft material. We use a nice cotton and nylon mix to get the best of both worlds. While cotton is great at soaking up moisture. It is not realistic to expect cotton to do that completely. Cotton is a natural material that is light and allows proper ventilation. However, it is not very good at distributing moisture away. This is where nylon comes into play. Where cotton is good at absorbing, nylon is the complete opposite. It's main role is to bring moisture to the surface so that sweat can dry faster, which will keep your feet dry. Nylon is a man made material that adds durability and softness. The use of nylon also enables socks to hold their shape better for an improved fit. Together, cotton and nylon adds strength, comfort, and moisture wicking abilities.
