I have Diabetes. These socks are very soft, and they make my feet feel comfortable. My feet sweat profusely, and these socks wick the moisture away. They also seem to prevent smelly feet. I really love them. I own about 30 pairs of them now so that I always have clean ones to wear. I got rid of most of my other socks. They just can't compete with these.
Comfortable, durable, warm and cool as needed

I split a 6pk with 3 people (1 diabetic, 1 hypoglycemic, and 1 normal blood sugar). We all agree, the socks a durable, hard to snag or put a hole in even when walking around the house or out on the front yard in only your socks. They keep your feet warm when it is cold (inside of outside), and keeps your fee cool and DRY when it is hot outside. These socks have an elastic-type band around the arch for extra arch support that allows me to stand and walk longer without aching feet, and reduced my edema. I, personally, feel this is better than diabetic socks for diabetics to try, but because they are padded and soft, they are also a comfortable snug feelings. Diabetics who have open wounds, of the top layer of skin rubbed off, or any other minor problem on foot or toe skin should probably wait until there are NO skin problems before trying these.
Bamboo socks stay whiter than other socks. I use liquid Tide (both regular and coldwater) and both powerder and liquid Arm & Hammer detergent. I also use Bounce dryer sheets and Downy rinse products. Regardless of product combinations, the socks clean very well. (If you get them very dirty from walking without shoes on your sidewalk, on a very dirty floor, or something that turns your socks VERY gray before they go into the laundry, then that gray will most probably stay. If it is minor, common soil, I have had no problems with is clening and coming out white.
All above true for both ankle-high and crew cut bamboo socks.
