I have never tried any socks like this before. They are copper socks and are suppose to be good for diabetics. I am not diabetic but I am prediabetic and I am trying to avoid that. But my feet do bother me quite a bit. I can say after trying these socks they feel so good wearing them. My feet feel so comfortable wearing them. They fight odor and bacteria. They keep your feet warm but don't overheat them. My feet actually felt softer after wearing them. I really love these socks and I would highly recommend them. I received at a discount or free for my unbiased review.
