I have worn Peds socks for several years. I’m not diabetic, but I like the support and the fact that they last a long time. I saw these in Kmart when I was browsing one day and had to have them. They have pink spots on the toe and heel, which makes sorting socks much easier. The rest of the sock is white.
They were available in a light sock, a medium-duty sock, and a thick sock. I chose the medium because I like to be able to wear them in shoes without being too snug. I got two 3-packs that day. They are ankle socks, which I think are very comfortable.
I got them home and put on a pair. They were just warm enough to keep the air conditioning from making my feet cold, but not too toasty to make my feet hot. Over the next few days I wore the new socks and enjoyed the pretty pink color.
The first pack was a perfect fit. I knew my size so it was easy to pick them out. However, when I opened the second pack I noticed that the top of the sock was very snug. After about 20 minutes of wearing them I had to take them off because they were digging into my lower leg.
I found this puzzling. The socks appeared to be the same size and style. One pack fit very well, while all three socks in the second pack were too tight for me to wear. I continued to wear the three pairs that fit, but after only a few washings they were starting to get hard and the fabric was pilling.
I was so disappointed! I’ve never bought any Peds socks that weren’t full-length socks (that come up over your lower legs) but I expected the same quality from them. I wonder if the packs I got were some of those cheap knock-offs you hear about on the news (and not really made by Peds). I have always bought my Peds socks from Wal-mart, and I think I’ll continue to do that. These socks are pretty but they aren’t worth the trouble. Who ever heard of diabetic socks that cut into your lower leg?
