CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOCKS AND HOSIERY
If you need footwear with more width and depth then it makes sense that you will need socks and hosiery with extra room .
If your socks and hosiery are leaving deep ridges on your legs then circulation may be inhibited which may make your swelling worse .
Swollen feet and legs require socks and hosiery that are extra roomy . Socks that are specially designed for swollen feet will have a wider heel and increased depth over the instep to accommodate the swelling as well as more width in the leg .
Look for socks that feature a non-restrictive top which stays up without putting pressure on your calves . This will prevent pinching and digging-in and help maintain good circulation . Hosiery should have tops which hold them gently in place without leaving red marks or restricting circulation .
If you have diabetes or vulnerable feet , it ’ s important that you look for socks that have a smooth toe-seam to prevent damaging your feet . It ’ s always a good idea to check inside the sock to see if there is anything that might rub or irritate .

If you have swelling , try resting with your feet elevated for at least 20 minutes , preferably a couple of times a day . This will help to reduce pressure on your legs and encourage healthy blood flow . A foot stool , preferably adjustable in height , is ideal .
If you have diabetes , it ’ s advisable to wear shoes and socks with minimal seaming to avoid damage to your feet . Run your fingers inside any item before wearing , checking for anything that may harm . After buying new footwear , wear it for 2 hours at first , then inspect your feet for pressure marks or irritation . A hand mirror is useful , so you can examine your whole foot . Gradually build up the wearing time .
