The makers of these Protect iT socks have thought of every comfort to give diabetics extra protection around their feet. Although they look like normal socks, they have all sorts of great features including an air vent system to direct heat away from sweaty toes, padding that absorbs shocks from walking, and a Y-shape that is part of the heel shape to stop the sock from moving and, therefore, prevent rubbing and friction sores. The team at Spring Chicken reckon these will be great socks for people suffering from or prone to foot problems.
