EcoSox diabetic socks are developed not only for people suffering from diabetes or a diabetic condition but for people who just prefer the relaxed fit of our non-binding stay-up tops. EcoSox socks are gender-neutral, so whether you are looking for diabetic socks for men or diabetic socks for women, EcoSox has your feet covered!
Individuals with diabetes often need to be more particular about their socks and proper foot care due to the elevated risks of foot complications associated with the disease. Neuropathy, Edema, foot ulcers, calluses, dry skin, and poor circulation are all complications associated with diabetes. These risks create discomfort and can ultimately lead to the need for foot amputation if foot care is ignored. EcoSox constructs socks for diabetes to provide a comfortable solution and will keep feet dry, clean, and healthy by using yarns derived from cellulose that wicks moisture away from the foot and to the sock where moisture can be evaporated away. Other than the sizing, there are no differences between men's diabetic socks and women's diabetic socks. Other features include a cushioned footbed and an integrated smooth toe seam.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What are diabetic socks?
Diabetic socks are specially designed to improve blood flow to the feet and keep feet clean and dry. They provide extra cushion in the heel and ball of the foot to prevent cuts, blisters, and corns, all of which can lead to problems for people with diabetes.
Who needs diabetic socks?
Diabetics who have peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage) and are prone to foot injuries should wear diabetic socks. Even those who don’t have peripheral neuropathy can benefit from diabetic socks, since they protect and keep feet clean and dry.
What features should I look for in a diabetic sock?
Look for diabetic socks made of soft, moisture-wicking materials, like viscose. Also look for socks with stretchy cuffs that don’t cut off blood flow, flat seams or no seams (to help prevent blisters), extra cushion in the heel and ball of the foot, and a foot-conforming fit that doesn’t bunch or wrinkle. Light-colored socks will help you spot blood from an injury. EcoSox diabetic socks are specially designed for people with diabetes.
