Made with super soft merino wool, these warm socks are great for sensitive feet. Designed specifically for diabetics, these socks feature a padded foot, a non-binding top band, and smooth seams. These socks contain no graduated compression.
Why is merino wool so great for socks? Merino wool has a lot of natural properties that make it an ideal fabric for socks. First of all - it's naturally anti-bacterial which means it will kills bacteria on your feet. This is great if your feet tend to be a bit smelly or if you have any wounds on your feet that you're trying to keep clean. Wool is also great at regulating your temperature. You might think they're just for cold weather, but wool is great all year long! In the summer, it's very breathable and quick to wick away sweat to keep you cool. Made with 50% Nylon, 40% Merino Wool, 10% Spandex in the USA.
Sized by shoe size - we don't recommend these socks for anyone with a calf greater than 20".
This is a pack of socks - two pairs of socks per order.
Disappointed they didn't last., August 9, 2018 By Anonymous (Sitka, AK)(Verified)
Sorry about the email with nothing in it, not really sure what I did wrong but oh well. Anyway, just thought I'd pass some observations about the socks I purchased in late March/early April. I remembered that you said that the supplier of those socks was a new one for you so feel free to pass along my comments. First the good and then the bad. The large size fit me great even though I wear an 11 1/2 boot. They really kept my lower legs from swelling and they maintained their fit pretty well.
Unfortunately, out of the 4 pairs that I got, I'm down to my last pair. All the socks wore out in the bottom part of the heel, the fabric just wore away. I will mention that I wore them with 2 new pairs of Keen boots, I usually alternate my hiking/walking boots but with both pairs of boots the insoles were brand new. I do walk/hike between 3-4 miles every day so my socks/boots get a good workout. Also, always washed them in cold water and put them on a drying rack to dry. I don't use a dryer for my clothes as most of them are either cotton or wool.
I'm disappointed that they didn't last longer, I had hoped to get more than 4 months wear out of each pair. It really did help that they kept my legs from swelling. I'm hoping that the company that produces them can make them a little more durable.
Hope that is some help to both you folks and the makers of the socks.
