Casual Diabetic Socks (Set of 2 Pairs)
Worth the Investment
Recently, I have been diagnosed with sesamoiditis (caused by repetitive movement as one does in dancing or other athletic activities) and mild arthritis in my feet. I needed socks that were in no way restrictive in the toe box--plus be forgiving enough to not "choke" my leg as most socks do to stay in place. These socks are attractive enough to wear with dress dance pants. I am very pleased with this investment.

NOT ONLY FOR DIABETICS
I saw deep ridges in my husbands legs from the elastic in his socks. I searched for 2 - 3 years to find socks that did not fall down and did not have binding tops. Found these and he now has 9 pairs. They have been great for the last 2 years. Still dark navy and nice and thick. His long toenails wore holes in 2 socks. That is great wear for his socks.

These Diabetic Socks are Great!
I have looked far and wide on many websites and in countless catalogues, and could not find any diabetic socks that would actually fit! When I ordered and received these socks and tried them on, I was really,
really happy-no, I was, overjoyed! It is just so important to have good fitting socks if you are diabetic, and these are awesome!

These are the BEST Diabetic Socks I have ever found!
I love these Casual Diabetic Socks and their features so much, this is my very first review I have ever written in my life. They are really like regular socks with the features that diabetic's need, with out the bulk that most diabetic socks have. You can easily get your shoes on, because they are truly the thickness of regular casual socks. They have NO seams to irritate your feet and the top of the socks are truly NON-BINDING and yet the TOPS STAY UP with no sagging. They wash up very nicely, with no shrinkage. They wear and last for several years, before you get a hole in the toe of the sock. I have been wearing these Casual Diabetic Socks since I found out I was diabetic in 1998. I might add I only wear them in White, so I don't know any thing about the Color Casual Diabetic Socks. Please Vermont Country Store don't ever stop carrying these marvelous socks!

Should have bought these before now!
My wife noticed early signs of varicose veins in the calves of my legs....next she noticed a probable cause: my athletic socks were cutting off the circulation, leaving a telltale imprint on my ankles. She bought these socks and what a relief! They don't appear to be "therapeutic socks" and I can look like the rest of the guys who don't have the problem of circulation that I have. I consider these socks "an ounce of prevention"...that, and increasing my daily consumption of Vitamin C...makes for a healthier and hopefully longer life. The cost is justifiable when I consider potential varicose vein surgeries I may have undergone in the future otherwise. I am saving my legs, while 'saving face'...all of us guys have our pride.
