    I was just curious if people wear specific types of socks to accommodate for the foot pains and ailments? I have sensitive feet with neuropathy so I purchase seamless diabetic socks for comfort and a smooth interior. Sometimes during travelling, I wear compression socks to help with swelling.

    A few brands that I have tried already are Aetrex, EcoSox and the Extra Wide Sock Company. Please share your experiences with your favorite pair of socks.

    Yes, diabetic socks and compression socks are good for diabetic foot and other foot pain problems. Diabetic socks helps in circulation.

    Hey Robert,

    How is it that diabetic socks help with circulation?

    A diabetic sock is a non-binding and non-elasticated sock. Diabetic socks are made to be unrestrictive of circulation. Many diabetic compression socks provide much support, even moisture control and bacteria prevention for further protection. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diabetic_sock

    I'm a fan of compression socks that I can get over the counter. Helps keep the blood flowing in my legs while I'm running.
