Jobst ActiveWear and Casual Updates

New sizes for wide calves
Jobst ActiveWear support socks for men and women have been a huge success from the day they were introduced.  ActiveWear features a fully cushioned foot, comfort knee band, and seamless toe box.  Now Jobst has added two new full-calf sizes in all compression levels.  Designed to fit a calf circumference of 18-24″, Large Full-Calf and X-Large Full-Calf are great additions to this popular sport sock.

Jobst Casual now in navy
The Jobst Casual sock for men is now available in navy as well as khaki and black.  Casual is marketed as a transition sock between the athletic Jobst Active and the dressier Jobst For Men.  It has wide contemporary ribbing, and looks great with a suit or a pair of jeans.  Made from a blend of nylon, polyester, spandex and wool, this sock is super soft.  It also has a very generously sized foot and is a great option for men with large feet.

Next best thing to barefoot…

I would go barefoot all day if I could.  Sadly, that isn’t practical living and working in a large city.  As a business owner, I’m often in dress shoes and a pair of mild compression dress socks.  But on those days when I don’t need to dress up, you’ll find me wearing crew length SmartKnit diabetic socks and a comfortable pair of shoes.  The closest thing to being barefoot this side of flip flops.

There aren’t any seams in a SmartKnit sock so you don’t feel pressure anywhere on your foot or toes.  The halo top is so comfortable, I can’t even feel where the top of the sock is on my leg.

SmartKnits are also incredibly durable.  I started with 4 pair over 6 months ago.  Each pair is worn almost every week, and then machine washed and dried.  The 4 pair still look and feel like new.

One can spend a lot less on a diabetic sock, but for my money nothing is as comfortable or durable as a SmartKnit.
