I am not diabetic, but I am a big guy and lift weights as well and was tired of my ankles being cut off - causing pain and circulation issues. Also the constant falling down of my dress socks. FYI - I have 9.5 inch ankle, 18.5 inch calf, and 20 inch rise from foot to back of knee. It is hard to find decent dress socks for bigs guys - aren't all this crossfit people having issues finding socks for their muscular calves? .... So the pros of this sock are 1) Good Price (large calf -diabetic socks are horribly expensive but not these) 2) Fits me - they are very long and they really do stay up all day 3) generally comfortable. The Cons 1) Fish net construction on top after the solid fabric foot part - the upper part expands using an open weave - really open - like black fish net stockings on a gal. It does not bother me too much as these are hidden under my dress pants mostly. However when I cross my feet at work a "small" less stretched portion of the fish net becomes exposed...
I like high socks. And especially when wearing my big boots.
Problem is, every "boot sock" I have purchased is WAY too tight on my fat legs, and I end up having to cut slits in the top of them so as to not cut off circulation in my legs and to my feet, which are plagued by neuropathy.
I have purchased other Diabetic socks, but they were shorter, and did not last very long...maybe a year or so. Those were expensive, too. Nearing the $10 per pair pricetag.
Then, I found these on Amazon. With the price being about $2.50 a pair, I was skeptical, and I also wondered what their idea of "over-the-calf" would be.
Well, ALL my skepticism went out the window 5 minutes after opening the package. The socks are nice and soft. They feel sturdy. They go CLEAR UP over my calves almost to my knee without a bit of struggle, and they do not cut off circulation. No more pulling out the scissors for every new pair of socks I buy.
These socks are 80% cotton and 20% nylon which gives them a "harder" feel than all cotton, but perhaps added strength. The sizing is a bit on the small side. I wear a 10 1/2 - 11 shoe and these fit, but snugly. They claim to fit size 12...that might be a bit tight, I would guess. They are comfortable and I love the over the calf length. They are quite thin, however. Almost like mini-fishnet stocking. I may try to post a picture later so you can see. You can see your skin through the socks. At first this concerned me, but after wearing them awhile, I'm OK with it. But some might not be.
They feel very light and I am concerned as to how they will hold up. That is, will the toes or heels wear out quickly? Only time will tell. They are also a bit expensive, in my opinion, but maybe worth it if they hold up. I will come back and update this review once I have more experience with them. Having worn them for two days, they were very comfortable and the quality seems...
