Diabetic Socks or regular socks
karen46203 posted:
Does anyone know of some thick socks that are ankle socks? And when can I get them? I can't wear the athletic ones or the other socks on the shelf they are not thick enough. I have caluses on the bottom of my feet and if the socks are thick enough or the shoes don't have enough cushion in them my feet get sore.

Hi Karen I also have callous on the bottom of my feet. But I do not wear thick socks I buy the store brand of double thick padded inserts. I do not buy the Dr Scholls because they cost too much. It stops my feet from hurting on the callous'.

I also can not stand the toe seams so I turn all my socks inside out. That way the seams are up and they do not press into my toes.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength.
