I wear diabetic socks all the time. They have been a total plus concerning my foot care. It is so nice to have room to move in these socks and still wear a quality item.

just wanted to tell you that that is all I wear now lucky me I can wear sneakers to work. My feet use to be dry and cracked but those socks are great I buy them at wal mart they use to say medipeds on the bottom which was great but I guess to save money they no longer do. It was a BIG adjustment cause I LOVED bare feet and going sockless oh well!!!I have also purchased them at k mart but even though they seem alike wal mart are made in USA kmart are not.

I would not use any other kind. They do not restrict my circulation in my feet,and that is very important.No tight elastic.
Besides they are usually recommended by the DR,

I found diabetic socks at the dollar store in Farmington, CT and I love them. When I take them off at night, I don't have those bands around my legs like I did with regular socks. I find them very comfortable.

I personally do not like them. I had some and they had a weird texture that my feet did not like. At home I use the memory foam slippers and with the neuropathy in my feet. I have diabetic crocs to go outside and around with, they feel great.
