RedHead® Diabetic Comfort Merino Wool Crew Socks for Men
Bought these for my father-in-law and he loves them. He has a few other pair of different brands, but really likes this pair the best.

I'm not a diabetic, but there's a strong chance I will become one later in life with the family history and being overweight. I bought these socks since number 1 they were on sale, but also because of my hunting boots. My boots have a ton of insulation and my feet actually got too hot while hunting in 20 degree weather with a normal wool hunting sock. I purchased a new pair of boots, but they run a little smaller. An 11.5 can fit in a 12, but having a thick sock will probably cut off circulation and be too tight. These socks are comfortable, not as thick, breathable on the top of the foot, and has about 3/4 or slightly more warmth of a typical thick wool sock. This sock will keep my feet warm, keep it comfy, and not cut off circulation on my feet with a slightly tighter fitting boot. If you feet are ever too hot or if you feel like the boot/sock combo is cutting off circulation this is the sock for you. I would still use this in 10-20 degree weather. It really is a warm sock, but will add comfort to your feet.

I have 5 pair now, and wear them all summer into most of the spring and fall. The ankle band is loose enough to keep legs from swelling, yet keeps the socks up.
My only improvement to offer would be other colors like and oatmeal or tan.

Amazing socks diabetic or not
was having a problem with my feet drying and cracking from my hiking boots. Tried these and now use them for everything, even sneakers! My feet are in the best shape they have been in years. Worth every penny. Have purchased several pairs for myself and my teenage daughter. Now my husband wants them also! Do not slip down or bind at ankle. Holding up great after numerous washings. Wish they sold them in package sets!
