It wasn’t all that long ago, when a 6’ tall man with a size 14 shoe had a hard time finding compression stockings that provided a comfortable fit. Times have changed. Now most brands have sizes to fit big feet and tall men.
The latest option is from Sigvaris. They recently launched Midtown Microfiber as a replacement for Men’s Select Comfort. Available in knee highs and thigh highs, Midtown is made from a great fabric that’s really soft and elastic. Midtown is available in extended foot sizes in the 15-20 and 20-30mmHg knee highs. Sizes MX, LX, and XX will will fit a men’s shoe size of 12.5-17.5. This is the largest foot size available in any ready-to-wear support sock. The rest of the Midtown line fits a shoe size up to 14.
Jobst has offered Tall sizes in their Jobst for Men and for Men Casual lines for some time. These sizes fit a men’s shoe over 12, and a lower leg length over 19.75”. Their newer Ambition line, which we’ve heard will eventually replace Jobst for Men, is available in long lengths to fit a lower leg up to 20”, but no foot size is given.
If your feet are larger than your budget, and you don’t want to spend $50 or more on a pair of socks, check out Allegro’s Premium Italian socks. The Italian Cotton is available in 15-20 and 20-25 mmHg compressions. The Italian Wool is 15-20mmHg only. Both will fit a men’s size 14 foot. Priced at $20.96 for the 15-20 cotton, and $24.94 for the wool and higher compression cotton.
