Neuropathy socks are the same design as diabetic socks, you can also look for terms such as comfort socks or some travel socks that would have the features you are seeking. Be sure that you are choosing a non-binding sock. Avoid products that indicate a compression feature.
When buying socks consider two key sock features for your condition. Look for socks that have a seam free or smooth toe, this will avoid irritation and blisters with your sensitivity. You also need a non-binding sock top, this will help reduce pressure on the leg and avoid the sock ring imprints. Sugar Free Sox have these features as well as a specially designed big stretch fabric allowing the socks to expand further than a regular sock.
