I had read some reservations about these socks so I was a bit skeptical about getting them; however, I just don't find the problems with the socks, even though I am pretty picky. The only seams are out of the way, and they are nicely cushioned. The seam on these socks is absolutely safe and never bothers me. My wife, who has very, very tender feet, also loves them and cannot see any problems with the seams.
The open-weave ankles surprised me and I was sure I would not be able to use them in the cold winters here. I was really surprised, then, to find that they kept my feet warm at -20 degrees F, in the snow. With regular shoes and pants. Later I wore them in snow boots for 2 hours out there in the cold, and they performed very well. My feet never got wet as they wicked moisture away, like they should.
I have washed several pairs 6-8 times and they show no signs of wear. They don't snag very easily, they haven't pilled, and they haven't shrunk at all! They are just as comfortable as when I first got them.
I sleep in them they are so comfortable and they are so well-ventilated that my feet do not perspire and my feet don't get hot, only comfortable.
I am sold on these socks, so much so that I just ordered 6 more pairs.
April 2, 2015 Update: long experience with many pairs of these socks has drastically changed my opinion.Read more ›
I checked the stores but they only offered what is called "diabetic" socks in white. Even at his advanced age, my father is not going to wear white socks, unless he is playing tennis, and believe me, that event is highly, highly unlikely. So I began to search for dark diabetic socks, preferably black.
I found two manufacturers that make them. These socks by Diastar and socks by Wigwam Wigwam Men's Diabetic Strider Sock. Not really knowing which to buy, I bought both. The socks by Wigwam are all acrylic. They are ok. They fit well, they do not bind and they do not fall down.
The Diastar socks, however, are better. They are very soft and cushy. They are 90% cotton. They do not bind or sag and they stay up. The top is an innovative mesh-like open weave that is very comfortable. They wash well. They come in Black, Brown, Blue, and of course, white.
I even wear them on the floors as I travel throughout my house! They are light, but durable.
