I am interested in this item, but am not able to determine from the picture the weave of the ankle part of the sock. Is this a diabetic sock where the ankle part is loosely woven in order to allow the extra room or is it a regular sock (as can be purchased at big box stores) but with a larger diameter around the ankle? Thanks.
These are diabetic socks with loose tops.
I have bought several dozen of what is call "Diabetic Socks". I even bought socks from the renown Dr. Scholl's. They are tight at the top and for the most part appear to be low quality made outside this country. Is there a rule or guide how to buy socks so they don't effect blood flow? For example, if the top of the sock will fit x amount of inches at the top of the sock, these socks are perfect for you. Are they also a good quality product or am I hoping for too much out of a pair of socks? Just for your information my legs are not large but I still have this problem. Many Thanks.
Sorry for your frustrations. We can't speak for the other sock manufacturers, but we believe that we offer high quality diabetic socks. All of our products are made in the USA. Yes, it costs more but quality comes first for us. Our socks are made mostly with cotton and some nylon. We find this blend offers a good balance between keeping your feet comfortable and dry while maintaining its durability. The sock tops are non-binding as they should be for diabetic socks. Although there are no hard fast rules for finding perfect fitting tops. Our large diabetic socks do offer a looser fitting top than our regular sized ones. Another important consideration is to follow the washing instructions. Anything made of cotton will have some shrinking if they are put in the dryer with high heat. So after a wash, it is best to either hang dry or tumble dry low. Hope that helps and thank you for your inquiry.
