3 Diabetic socks Posted by Patsy Stoneman on 19th Nov 2019 I am not diabetic but my ankles swell slightly and my feet are always cold if my socks constrain the ankles. I read the specification for these socks and hoped that they would allow the circulation to flow better than my usual socks. Unfortunately this is not the case. My feet are, if anything, colder than ever. So - the socks appear to be well made but they have not solved my problem.
