Wigwam is a one hundred and 5 yr old-fashioned United States producer of socks. All Wigwam socks have a 2-year efficiency guarantee.
Unfortunately the socks are binding .
I really like this brand of sock. I have some wool socks by this company that have lasted for years and have worn very well. I wanted something lighter weight for warmer weather. Unfortunately, the cost is not really wide enough and it is definitely not flexible enough especially at the top so this sock ends up being pretty binding. The quality is very good and if you have slender legs this may well work for you. But if you have legs that are sturdy like tree trunks, forget about it. I have been using Dr. Scholl’s diabetic socks which have a very nice and stretchy top that are not clingy and yet not lose so they stay in place and do not put a lot of compression on my legs. But Dr. Scholl’s socks pill up very quickly and they look shabby after the first wary. The Wigwam socks I suspect will hold up much better , as there was once do. I really would like to see this company come up with a truly nonbinding diabetic sock , as the market is wide open. Most of these socks are just junk . Wigwam would have a great competitive edge if they could do this.
My husband has been wearing these socks for 3 or 4 years now. Before that, I tried every kind of diabetic sock imaginable (including the famous doctor brand). All the other brands deteriorated very quickly, and had to be darned or just plain thrown out. The last two new pair I purchased of Wigwam Men’s Diabetic Walker Crew Length Sock over 3 years ago are still being worn by my husband, though they are somewhat worn…no holes though! If you think these cost a bit much, consider the fact that they can be worn for YEARS, not weeks.
Great Socks for ANYONE with larger ankles
These socks are soft and neither exceedingly thin nor exceedingly padded. They strike a perfect balance for me between thin nylon dress socks and casual fuzzy socks. I’m a 9D or E depending on shoe last; so these medium socks are perfect. The length is indeed crew, NOT over-the-calf as many socks labeled “crew” are for me! The knit is smooth and soft, and the tops are not tight and binding but do stay up for me. I have heavier ankles than some people, and many brands of socks are just too “skinny” to fit my feet and WAY too tight on my calves. These socks have a lot of stretch to them without being “loose.” Having tried some “diabetic” socks by other makers, and finding them too loosely woven and falling down, I bought just one pair of these first. After seeing them and wearing them once, I knew I had found the right socks for me. I ordered 13 more pairs to make sure I had enough for two weeks between laundry cycle. Finally COMFORTABLE high-quality socks for a guy with cankles! AND they are made in the USA!! Perfect!
Good hot weather socks. Made in USA.
I bought these socks for hot weather casual use. This is my second set. The material is fairly thin and wicks well. These are the best I have found for hot weather use. I have tried many, many brands. It is hard to find plain color socks for work and casual use that have Cool-max for hot weather.
my favorite socks
I purchased these socks 3 or 4 months ago and so far have been pleased. I guess the true test is that given a choice I reach for these socks rather than other socks in my drawer. I purchased the Large size which the charts say equate to a shoe size 10-13. My shoe size is 10.5 (us) and I have 4E wide feet. These socks are not snug on my ankles/calfs (which is the idea with diabetic socks) and do tend to slip a little bit, but it is not much of a problem and they are very comfortable. The only negative comment is that I ordered the Navy Blue color. At first this was a nice rich, dark blue. However, with a couple of months of washing, they have faded some. Not awful, but noticeable. – I will probably buy some more of these because they are easy to get on by big, wide feet, they fit and are comfortable. (I am giving 4 stars rather than five because of the fading issue.)
Wigwam Men’s Khaki Diabetic Walker X-Large Wigwam
The socks are comfortable and expand and do not restricted circulation. These socks stay up and do not fall, plus they stretch without being too loose. Even when my legs swell these socks expand and also stretch and I, still feel comfortable. I will be ordering several additional pairs to make sure I have enough of these socks on hand. Also they are made in the USA
Really good all around socks. No ankle dents!!
Wigwam Diabetic Walkers are the only socks I wear. I’m not diabetic but dislike socks that make dents around my ankles. These socks stay up, wash well, don’t make my feet sweat, and remain fairly soft after many washings. They do shrink a bit after about 2 years of wash and wear but what socks last nearly that long? I’ve never worn a hole in them. I am giving these to my diabetic father for Christmas. He loves them too.
WigWam Diabetic Walker Socks
Although I’m not diabetic, diabetic socks are the best type for my foot problems [ingrown toenail, neuroma & occasional, overheated feet]. These are the most comfortable socks I’ve ever worn. The only negative [which is why they get four stars] is that they run a little large and sometimes stretch out while being worn, requiring me to remove my shoe and adjust my socks. The socks do not irritate my feet nor do they cause excessive heat, which does result when I use cotton diabetic socks. Anyway, they’re a “keeper.” I wish that they were available in more colors and weren’t so costly for each pair.
One of my few made-in-the-USA clothing items. I’m not diabetic, but I hate tight socks. I always buy a size larger than recommended. I wear other, thicker sox with my hiking boots. I use these with “walking” shoes. They’re definitely not “thick” but I wouldn’t call them thin. I have very bad thumb arthritis and I can get these on and off without pain. They don’t slip down. After trying one pair, I now have 4 white and 4 black.
