Men's Health & Wellbeing Socks

Taking care of your health and wellbeing is incredibly important. Our selection of men's health and wellbeing socks will help you to take small steps towards a healthier you. 

Our extensive selection includes specialised diabetic socks for men that increase blood flow and help prevent abrasion and flight socks that reduce the risk of blood clots. We also stock men’s compression socks that improve circulation both during and after exercise. Our range of health and wellbeing socks for men will keep your feet protected and comfortable.

Look after your feet

There really is nothing as important as your health. Socks generally aren’t thought of as being essential to your good health but the right kind of men’s socks can mean all the difference to your general sense of wellbeing. Yoga socks help with balance and grip to promote health and some special socks even help prevent conditions from worsening.

For healthy socks, one size does NOT fit all

Make sure that you have the right health socks for your own needs - if in doubt, ask your chiropodist or podiatrist, GP, nurse or other healthcare professional. For example, compression socks are a great help for many of us, but can be too restrictive for those with diabetes or other circulatory restricting ailments, who need extra-wide socks with gentle hold.

Our collection of diabetic socks for men and mens’ compression socks come in a range of styles, lengths, and colours, making these socks versatile and suitable for all situations. Take this opportunity to improve your health and wellbeing, starting from the feet upwards.

Squeeze into compression socks

Circulation-enhancing, leg energising - compression socks use graduated, gentle pressure on your legs and ankles, promoting blood flow. Compression is particularly useful for flight socks and travel socks, where you spend long hours sat or stood in one place, helping prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It’s also valued in sports socks and calf sleeves, where compression improves performance and aids muscle recovery.

Gently does it

If you have swollen legs, tight socks can make it worse by actually constricting the blood vessels making it harder for blood to flow. And for those with neuropathy from conditions like diabetes, socks that are too restricting can actually break the skin without the wearer realising, causing injury and infection. So wide-fitting diabetic socks with non-elastic, gentle grip tops are essential, non-binding and comfortable in the long term. Many include special antibacterial treatments and smooth toe seams to further prevent skin problems.

Comfort for prosthesis wearers

Amputees’ sock requirements are naturally very specific. Post-amputation, limbs need proper socks for protection and comfort when wearing a prosthesis. Good prosthetic socks are soft, breathable and often cotton rich, with added terry loop cushioning.
