Diabetic Socks for Men
If you experience poor circulation or temperature control as a result of diabetes then your feet deserve a treat! When shopping for socks, for men with diabetes, you'll probably see the terms diabetic socks and circulation socks thrown around quite often. Diabetic socks are somewhat different from circulation (or compression) socks – they provide a little more cushioning and warmth than their counterparts. Awesome for both low-cut dress shoes or your work style casuals, our socks will keep your feet feeling their best with a perfect blend of comfort and style!
Guide to Choosing Men’s Diabetic Socks
These socks have been created specifically with extra features to directly target the foot discomforts associated with diabetes. How so you may ask? Well here are the features of diabetic socks:
- a slightly larger toe box so your feet don't feel confined to tight spaces
- a bit more padding under the heel and balls of the feet so it's less likely for there to be any skin irritation
- Smart, moisture-wicking material to keep your feet dry
- No toe seam or binding to promote better circulation in feet and legs
- Soft Yarns and natural fibres for comfort
- Antimicrobial Properties to fight fungus
And do not fear! Just because these socks are specifically designed for temperature regulation, moisture control and fighting infection, doesn’t mean they have to look that way. These diabetic socks come in black, white, natural and even funky colours and patterns.

What are the best socks to wear for diabetics?
Diabetic socks provide extra warmth, padding and support that regular socks simply don't have.
