Wide stretch socks

Wide stretch socks

One of the most important features in a diabetic sock is the wide cross stretch.  Regular socks are knit with an elastic band at the top, while this does give some stretch it also creates a pinch point that can cause restriction on the leg and prevent blood flow to the foot.  Simcan Socks are designed without any restriction on the top and use Spandex to allow the sock to have a wide stretch and to reduce any marks left on your leg.

A Smooth toe seam is crucial to certain individuals who have sensitivity issues in their feet.  Regular toe seams can cause abrasion to the foot and be very uncomfortable in footwear.  Our socks are knit with a “hand-linked” toe seam which is almost completely flat.  Although this does take more time and has a higher cost we find this is essential for our customers to provide the most comfortable sock possible.

Feature

Moisture wicking can be essential for some individuals.  Everyone’s body is different but many people do find their feet to sweat and this moisture needs to be removed to keep the foot healthy.  Bacteria thrive in warm dark places like a foot inside of a shoe.  Some fabrics are naturally moisture wicking while others we have to add an additive.  This helps draw the moisture away from the foot to keep it healthy and selling great.

Having a sag resistant sock is very important.  No one like s a sock to fall down around their ankles.  Most socks have an elastic around the top to keep them up but this causes a pinch point.  Instead of this, we knit our socks with spandex through the whole body of the sock to allow it to stretch but always come back to its original shape.
