DR Scholls Men's Diabetic Crew Socks, 2 Pack, is not a really great buy. DR Scholls know how to profit from this special niche product, but delivers-for the money-just an average product. It is easy to puncture the socks when first trying to open them, for they come with these very annoying and extremely tight plastic binders. The fit of the sock in the case of an 11.5 size is iffy at best, and for the money one would expect a much higher quality. What can you do? I'll tell you what: as surprising as it may sound there are regular socks (not the expensive diabetic titled) than can deliver a fine job. Might take a little while for them to reach the level of softness one desires, but with use it will happen. I am not impressed with DR SCHOLLS for I know they are delivering a product for a higher price than it is worth. 3 Stars.
BOUGHT THESE SOCKS FOR MY DIABETIC DAD WHO WEARS A SIZE 12 SHOE. THESE STATE SIZE 13-15 SO FIGURED THEY WOULD HAVE PLENTY OF FOOT ROOM. THEY FIT WELL ON THE TOP BUT THE FOOT SIZE WAS NO LARGER (MAYBE EVEN SMALLER) THAN THE REGULAR SIZE SOCKS. A BIG DISAPPOINTMENT BECAUSE I BOUGHT 8 PAIR AND THEY AREN'T CHEAP. ALSO THE TOE WHERE IT IS SEWED HAS A LARGE BUNCHED UP LINE AND ONLY GOES ACROSS HALF THE FOOT??\nI WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THESE FOR ANYONE OVER A SIZE 11 FOOT.
I bought these socks for my sister who has extremely sensitive feet due to health reasons. She loves these socks! I totally agree they are the softest socks ever. She actually turns them inside out so the softest side is next to her skin. A few pair did have thread snags\/pulls, but I was able to pull them back through to the other side with a small crochet hook. These snags happen on lots of things that are knitted so it's no big deal. There are many different styles like crew tops and even a crew top with wide tops for larger calves. My 2 local Walmarts did not have many pair in stock (people must know about these things!). So--I ordered them online. Walmart has excellant shipping practices. By the way--my sister wears size 9 womens shoe and likes the Mens size small--7-10 over the womens sizes. They fit looser on her and are more comfortable. These socks also come in black but are not quite as soft, but still better than most other socks.
