Diabetic crew socks are medical socks used by diabetics to improve blood flow to the legs. Crew socks for diabetics feature non-restricting cuffs that conforms to the legs without binding. The plush bottoms increase comfort and protection, low seams prevent blisters, and special moisture wicking fibers keep the feet drier.
Diabetic crew socks are designed for those that have poor foot circulation and a desire for more comfort. They are great for every day wear and versatile enough for either casual or more formal occasions. They can be used during physical activity or worn inconspicuously as dress socks. Our crew socks are mid-length in height and goes midway between the knee and ankle. They are perfect for wearing as men's diabetic dress socks. These socks are available in different colors to pair with any style of clothes. The choice of colors include assorted, white, black, grey, navy blue, tan, brown, and pink. Men's sizes include size 10-13 and 13-15. Children's diabetic socks are also available in crew length.
When it comes to picking the right diabetics socks, a good fit is important. Wearing socks that are too tight or too loose will likely lead to foot discomfort and blisters. Socks that are too tight will put unnecessary pressure on the feet. If socks are too loose, they will fall into the shoes, rub against the skin, and cause blisters. Neither situation is ideal for anyone that has sensitive feet. To prevent these problems, our socks are made with a well formed heel and toe area. We also use materials that hold their form better to provide a more contoured fit. These two features will help stop a lot of problems that are associated with poor fitting socks.
One of the most notable features of our best rated diabetic socks are the relaxed sock cuffs. This unique design helps improve circulation to the legs by allowing blood flow to run unconstricted. They are a lot more comfortable and doesn't leave rubber band marks that people get from normal socks. In addition, the socks are specially constructed to keep from falling down. They fit snugly, but not tight to prevent socks from bunching up and causing blisters to form.
Another great thing about these socks are the thicker bottoms. The difference between our socks and normal ones is night and day. More padding on the soles helps to add comfort and better cushions your every step. Plush terry loop cloth on the inside is more gentle on the feet and for better protection. We are also mindful that the extra amount of cushioning does not add excessive bulk to the socks.
Besides more cushioned bottoms, we use flat toe seams to increase comfort. Traditionally, socks are made with large bulky seams that put pressure and rubs against the skin. To prevent toe irritation, non-prominent seams are carefully stitched together to dramatically decrease the friction against the area around the toes. While this may not be noticeable after a few steps, it certainly will be after walking or running a lot.
The fibers used include cotton and nylon. Cotton is our base material for our diabetic crew socks because it allows for the feet to breath. Synthetic materials causes the feet to feel excessively hot. Cotton is also good at absorbing moisture. However, synthetic fibers still has its importance. A smaller percentage of nylon is used in order to wick moisture to the surface of the socks. Together, these two materials are more gentle on the skin and help keep the feet dry. Thus, this helps with preventing foot infections and protecting your feet from irritation. Not only that, but with each washing, the socks get softer and softer.
Diabetes is a problematic disease that commonly affects the feet. Through proper foot care, a lot of issues can be prevented. Wearing diabetic crew socks is a easy and inexpensive way to increase leg and feet circulation, improve comfort, and protect the feet from harm.
