Comfort Meets Protection

The Midfoot Protection sock combines the comfort of a seamless SmartKnit diabetic sock with the protection of GlideWear’s patented low-friction fabric.

The result is a comfortable, breathable sock that protects your midfoot from the friction and shear that cause ulcers, blisters, and calluses.

The Cost of a Diabetic Foot Ulcer

Diabetic foot ulcers can lead to months in a walking boot or, worse, partial foot amputation. Ulcers, which often start out as calluses or redness, can go from non-existent to debilitating in a very short time. They’re especially common in people with reduced sensation in their feet, including those diabetic neuropathy, and Charcot foot syndrome.

Diabetic foot ulcers can reduce mobility and quality of life. A diabetic foot ulcer can take months — or even years — to heal. During those months, someone with a diabetic foot ulcers is often in walking boot or cast.

    Like the GlideWear Midfoot Protection Sock. I recently purchased the black pair. I like the feel of the sock and it’s fit. Even though I have multiple problems on my left foot, I can find relief when wearing these socks.
