I am not a diabetic, but I just received the black diabetic socks I ordered and I am so hooked. Never did I expect to have my feet feel like this! These socks are heavenly. I really don't ever want to take them off! They actually make my feet feel very very soft. These socks are the best. I love the jobst knee hi's, too. They never never run or tear. Plus they make your legs feel great. I feel like I have a great secret!
