As a diabetic with problems in the feet and lower legs, sometime we are directed to wear compression socks. At the drug stores they can get expensive fast for one pair. I found the Futuro^tm by 3M to be a great sock for the occasion. These socks sale for about $10.00 for one up to the knees. I purchased the sock and found that I feel so much better in the lower legs and feets. I am not trying to sell them nor take credit for them but I do believe in them and feel that others might benefit is someway. Hope you feel better out there.
