Our simple comparison chart:

Norfolk Diabetic Sock versus Non-Elastic Sock Comparison Chart

Here at Norfolk® we understand you and your feet and are here to help.

Your socks are a very important part of your day, especially if you suffer from any type of leg or foot complaint. We understand this and have spent time crafting socks that work in harmony with both your legs and your feet. 

So, what is a Diabetic, Extra Wide / Oedema Sock?

Well, there is a lot of confusion around this subject, many companies call their socks 'Extra Wide', 'Edema' or 'Diabetic' socks when in fact all they have done is simply removed some elastic from the top of the socks and they deem this to be sufficient enough to call a sock 'Extra Wide', 'Edema' or 'Diabetic' friendly.

So, is it really that simple? Well, the honest answer is ‘No’ it isn’t....

As anybody suffering from swollen or sensitive legs or feet will tell you there are many factors that need to be considered when choosing socks and it’s not all down to the 'elastic' in the top of the socks…… Come on what about the rest of the sock?

So, what makes our Norfolk® 'Care' Socks different?

Well, it’s simple really, we asked real people what they actually wanted from their socks and then used this information along with our hosiery knowledge to manufacture a range of socks that work from the very top to the very bottom of the sock. Below are some of the main points people asked for:

  • I need my socks to stretch more.
  • I find that the tops of my socks are really tight and leave marks on my legs.
  • I sometimes get swollen legs and my socks can feel tight.
  • I get swollen ankles and my socks are uncomfortable.
  • I get swollen feet and my socks will just not stretch enough.
  • My feet can get hot and sticky when wearing shoes all day.
  • I have sensitive skin and my socks rub the tops of my toes.

We thank everyone for their great feedback and have used this to create our 'Oskar' care sock.

Please read on as we explain in further detail how our Norfolk® care socks can help you.

So, let me walk you through our Norfolk® 'Oskar' Wool Blend Diabetic, Extra Wide / Oedema Sock:

The Top of the sock: 

People told us they didn’t like their socks to be too tight or binding around the top, so we designed an 'Easy Fit' soft top that gently grips the leg holding the sock in place without that ring mark you get from tight elastic top socks.

The 'Leg' section: 

A number of people told us that they sometimes suffer from swollen legs or ankles and normal socks felt tight and restrictive. So, we set about designing a sock that looks and acts just like a normal sock but has that 'Secret Sauce Recipe' when needed. OK, so what's our secret sauce you ask, well most normal socks use a standard nylon backing that allows for some flexibility but can also restrict the stretch of the fabric. With our years of knowledge designing and manufacturing high-end sports socks and our access to the latest yarn technology, we borrowed some of this and our Norfolk® Stretch+ Technology was born! It's this technology that allows our socks to stretch up to 50% further than a regular sock can. But also allows our socks to look and feel just like a normal everyday sock. So, with our technology on your side no more uncomfortable or tight sock days!

The 'Foot' Section: 

'Shoes' a great invention for protecting your feet but they don't always allow your feet to breath and if your feet cannot breathe they get hot, sticky, uncomfortable and this is then the perfect playground for odour causing bacteria and other nasties to grow in. So, to help prevent this we built ‘Ventilation Panels’ into the sole of our socks and across the top of the toes. These ventilation grooves allow air to circulate around the feet helping to keep your feet cool, dry and happy.

We also gave the foot the same stretch properties as the leg and ankle, so don't worry if you have swollen feet we have you covered there too.

The Toe Seam: 

Unfortunately, every sock in the world must have a toe seam, but do they really need to be big and thick? Well, the short answer is ‘No’. Most cheap socks have what is called a ‘Rosso toe’ you can usually spot this as it looks like ‘Ben Nevis’ and leaves a large ridge across the top of your toes. Now, a ‘Rosso toe’ is all well and good in certain circumstances but not if you have Diabetes or other foot complaints that make your skin sensitive to rubbing or abrasion. What you really need is a ‘Hand Linked’ toe seam as these are absolutely flat and have no ridges at all. OK so it costs a bit more to finish a sock with a ‘Hand Linked’ toe, but for something that spends so much time on your foot, trust us, it’s worth every penny….

Did you know?

There are 250,000 sweat glands in your feet that can produce as much as half a pint of moisture each day. While the sweat itself doesn't smell, socks and shoes can trap odour-causing bacteria and fungi. So, to help keep your feet healthy we’ve added ‘Actifresh’ by Sanitize to our socks. ‘Actifresh’ works by stopping the bacteria from growing and multiplying and sort of traps it in a barrier until you wash the socks. Once washed, this removes the old bacteria from the fabric of the sock and resets the ‘Actifresh’ which is then ready again for the next time you wear the socks. 

So if you need:

  • Socks for Diabetes.
  • Socks with non-binding tops.
  • Socks for sensitive feet.
  • Socks for swollen legs.
  • Socks for swollen ankles.
  • Socks for swollen feet.
  • Extra wide socks.
  • Or just Roomy Socks.

These Norfolk® Care 'Oskar' socks have you covered.

The Norfolk® Guarantee:

As we manufacture all our own socks, we offer a '30-day' No Quibble returns policy as we are confident you will love our socks!
