Dr. Comfort Diabetic Sock Review

Dr. Comfort diabetic socks are said to be made specifically for those living with diabetes-induced foot issues such as edema, neuropathy, or other circulation issues. However, they have many of the same issues that diabetics run into with standard, run-of-the-mill socks. While the overall support provided by the socks, particularly on the arches, is acclaimed by most buyers, many report elastic bands around the ankle that leave indentations after only an hour of wear, which can pose considerable danger to those with restricted circulation.

These socks feature smooth seam construction, which is effective in reducing the risk of unwanted friction and makes these socks a good option for those who spend a lot of time on their feet, whether at work or for exercise. They are made from bamboo charcoal fibers, a derivative of cotton, which have antimicrobial properties to help keep feet dry. Unfortunately, however, the fibers are not very durable, and many report holes developing in the heels after only a few wears, and the socks falling apart after a few washes.

Variety is also a concern when it comes to Dr. Comfort socks, as they come in only a few very basic colors and fits, not including any low-cut ankle socks or compression socks, which reduces their versatility. Dr.Comfort does, however, offer low-rise “Merry-Jane” socks, perfect for ballet flats or other more formal footwear.
Considering their faults and lack of durability, these socks come with a hefty price tag, ringing in at about $10 a pair, much more than the price of a Diabetic Sock Club pair. Add in the fact that their sizing is questionable and no size chart is provided on the website, buyers may be taking a chance when they order Dr. Comfort socks.

Dr. Comfort diabetic socks, while they have their fans, are overall not worth their price tag.

  • I just bought a pack of 3 Doc Ortho Loose Fit size XL. I love them! I have neuropathy and have suffered because the socks are too tight or too rough on the skin. These feel great! Please direct me to your sight so I can buy more!
