“I love my life socks, not just for the extra support they give me in the foot area but also for the warm merino fibre and soft, comforting feel of them. They are my sock of choice when my feet are tired or achy and need that extra bit of support - the panels around the foot are in just the right places to help my tired feet relax.”Caroline
"I know the circulation in my legs is bad, but I have never really tried anything to help and I hate the white NHS compression socks/stockings which also hurt after wearing them for any length of time. I am also not a sock person, in fact when I did that walking trick, I loved to be bare foot as much of the time as I could.
Since the NZ Sock Co ‘LifeSocks’ from designed2enable arrived, they have been on my feet almost all of the time. It isn’t like wearing normal socks, my feet are warm but not over warm and my feet don’t sweat. Without a doubt the pain in my feet has gone down a few notches since wearing the LifeSocks and this must be down to improving my circulation.
The comfort is down to many of the design features, for a start they are seamless and so very very comfortable, the socks stay up which is a rare thing in the sock world and as I said best of all, my feet are warm but not sweaty and so I am even able to wear them in bed without having to remove them during the night because my feet are too hot.
LifeSocks are great for everyday use but especially useful to people with poor circulation, diabetes and would even help on those long haul flights where we are more at risk of developing blood clots whilst being seated for long.
I never imagined that I would enjoy wearing socks, I also didn’t realise just how much LifeSocks would help me. I am a full time wheelchair user and I am not very active and so the atrophy (muscle wastage) is now becoming very bad. So not moving my legs and having wasted muscles means that circulation is a big problem. My feet get extremely cold and painful. However now thanks to LifeSocks, those problems have been reduced!"
