WHAT ARE DIABETIC SOCKS?
Diabetic Socks are specially designed to protect a diabetic foot from developing additional issues. Conditions often experienced by diabetics include neuropathy, foot ulcers, numbness and skin sensitivity due to poor circulation.
Diabetic Socks have unique features that typically aren’t present in regular socks, and are specially designed to decrease the risk of foot injury, keep feet dry, and to offer maximum blood flow.

Dr. Segal’s has created the most cozy and comfortable Diabetic Socks on the market. They’re stylish, comfortable and are effective for diabetic and neuropathy patients, as well as for anyone wanting extremely comfortable socks to keep their feet warm!
