What Type of Diabetic Socks Do I Need?

Do I Need to Use Diabetic Socks?

If you’ve already been diagnosed with diabetes, you’re probably well aware of the fact that any nerve damage you’ve already suffered can lead to a potentially dangerous loss of feeling in your hands, arms, legs and feet.

That’s why the use of diabetic socks is so crucially important: Hurting your feet but never realizing it is a very real possibility for diabetics.

And so some diabetic socks designs are extra-thick, and will reduce the chance of damage to your feet when the coldest winter weather hits. Most are also seamless and non-constricting.

But before you actually purchase a pair, take a few minutes to read up on the benefits and differences of each separate style.

What Type of Diabetic Socks Do I Need?

SoftStep™ Diabetic Socks

softstep diabetic socks

This is our most reasonably priced diabetic sock, although the feature you should really be focusing on is the sock’s full-cushion lining, which was designed for easy and pain-free walking.

These socks also have a low-profile seam in the toe area, to reduce unnecessary skin irritation.

These are fairly long socks — they reach all the way to the leg’s mid-calf area — and the non-restrictive top won’t cut off your circulation.

All in all, this is a fantastic general purpose diabetic sock … and it even comes in ankle length. [Learn More]


Seamfree™ Diabetic Socks

Seamfree Diabetic Socks

This thin and lightweight pair is a great choice for any diabetic who’s especially concerned about blood circulation loss or skin irritation of any sort.

The sock’s toe area, for instance, is completely seamless.

And because the top of the sock is non-ribbed and the exterior is made of nylon, the overall feel is very nonrestrictive and free of friction.

As with the SoftStep design above, the Seamfree socks are available in mid-calf crew or ankle length, and they can easily be worn as dress socks. [Learn More]


Seamfree Xtra™ Diabetic Socks

With a completely seamless toe and a nonrestrictive non-ribbed top, these lightweight socks are very similar to the Seamfree Diabetic Socks.

The major difference? These are oversize socks designed for larger individuals, or for anyone suffering from severe edema.

The socks’ thin and lightweight cotton interior makes for an incredibly comfortable fit and feel, and they can be worn with dress shoes or custom molded shoes.

They’re available in ankle-high style, and in a mid-calf crew style. [Learn More]


Healthy Soles™ Diabetic Socks

Diabetic Socks - Healthy Soles
Do you find yourself occasionally having issues with overly damp feet, or feet that sweat excessively?

This is a very common issue for diabetics. And while the sweat itself isn’t actually hazardous, the possibility of fungus developing on the feet as a result of excessive sweat is a very real threat.

It’s also something that should be monitored regularly — at least once or twice a daily, if you’re out and about and walking.

The foot area of these socks, however, are constructed with something known as CoolMAX and Anti-Microbial X-Static Silver, which is specially designed to keep your feet sweat-free.

If you have problems with heavy sweating, a pair of these socks could be a lifesaver — literally.

They’re also made with a non-binding, less-restrictive top. [Learn More]


CoolSense™ Diabetic Socks

Diabetes Socks - Cool Sense Circulation Socks

As with the Healthy Soles socks we told you about above, the CoolSense socks are designed with CoolMAX® Fiber technology, which is specifically engineered to keep your feet dry.

Simply put, the CoolMAX fibers work to wick perspiration away from your skin.

Naturally, that makes for a much more comfortable experience. But it also does the very important job of keeping dangerous fungi from appearing on your feet.

CoolMAX Fiber technology, you might say, earns its keep by allowing you to forget about the state of your feet, even if only for a short while.

These socks also feature a non-binding, mild compression top for even more comfort. And the socks’ toe box is entirely seamless. [Learn More]


CoolSense™ Silver Diabetic Socks

What’s the main difference between these CoolSense Silver Socks and the standard CoolSense socks mentioned directly above?

For starters, the Silver socks are designed with the antimicrobial X-Static Silver technology, which offers odor control along with infection prevention.

Again, that’s thanks to the CoolMAX technology, which wicks away perspiration.

The comfortable, non-ribbed top of these dress socks makes for a truly comfortable sock that won’t bind or rub. [Learn More]


Seamfree™ Silver Diabetic Socks

This sock, which is knit with real silver yarn, is the newest member of the Creative Care family of diabetic socks. Its features include:

  • A completely seamless toe area
  • The natural elimination of odor-causing bacteria, which helps prevent dermatitis, athlete’s foot and fungus
  • A non-binding, turned welt top, and a style available in ankle high or mid-calf crew height

It’s certainly also worth pointing out that the Seamfree Silver diabetic socks are completely safe and non-toxic, thanks to the all-natural properties of silver.

And while these socks will most definitely keep your feet warmer in the winter, they’ll also keep you cooler in the warm weather of summer. [Learn More]


Double Lay-R™ Diabetic/Circulation Socks

Double Lay Diabetic Socks - Circulation Socks

The Double Lay-R sock is specially built for increased circulation and significantly better foot health.

The Double Lay-R features something of a sock-within-a-sock design. Two separate layers of fabric make for seriously reduced friction to the foot.

Less friction, of course, also means less sweat, less discomfort, and much better circulation. And those two separate sock layers definitely come in handy during the chilliest times of year.

The Double Lay-R also features a super-smooth flat toe seam, and they’re available in ankle-high or mid-calf crew styles. [Learn More]

Ways to Improve Your Health When You Have Type-2 Diabetes

Diabetic socks, diet, exercise and a host of other tasks can come like a deluge when a doctor diagnoses you with type-2 diabetes and describes what steps you need to take. Sometimes, though, knowing why each of these will help you manage this chronic condition may make it easier to keep up with a plan to manage your blood sugar sensitivity.

Diabetic Socks, Neuropathy and Sores

Seamfree xtra socksClothing might not seem like it is an important factor for type-2 diabetes, but neurological damage can make it difficult to feel your extremities. If fabric rubs wrong against sensitive skin, it can lead to sores or in the case of one’s feet put you at risk for a fungal infection. Diabetic socks combat this by having non-binding tops and wicking fabric. The former reduces rubbing while the latter creates a less inviting home for bacteria and fungi.

Similarly, people who can avoid wearing watches and tight shirts or tops also benefit. Keep in mind that during inclement weather, you may have to strike a balance between protecting from cold and potential frostbite due to decreased circulation and preventing overheating or even sores.
