This high top sock is available in a single or 2-pack version. The moisture-wicking liner is well suited and comfortable under just about any walker boot or foot orthotic, including post-op surgical shoes, foot cast boots, closed toe medical walking shoes, air cam walkers, and air cast walker boots.
Socks for a cam walker boot might be needed for a number of situations necessitating the use of an orthotic. For instance, if you have a stress fracture, ankle sprain, broken bone, or plantar fasciitis, wearing a support boot might be necessary.
Adding a sock to the equation is a good idea for a few reasons:
It will help reduce any friction between the brace and your skin, which can help prevent any chafing or blisters.
Socks for walker boots can act as a buffer between your foot (and its sweat and dead skin cells) and the brace. Plus, a sock is much easier to clean than most walker boot linings.
Though it seems simple, wearing a boot sock has been scientifically proven to help alleviate pain, absorb shock to your foot, relieve foot and leg fatigue, lessen swelling, and improve foot circulation. In comparison to other medical socks on the market, this particular boot sock has several features that help it stand out from the rest. Following we detail several ways BraceAbility’s walking boot sock helps ease your recovery process.
This one size fits most, boot sock is available in a high top (19 inches tall) version, making it compatible with any walker boot, regardless of its height. Designed for all ankle walkers, this sock is compatible with air walkers and air cast walker boots, to name a couple. Plus, this universal sock fits men and women's left or right feet, making it perfect for anybody.
The overall superior knit quality of this sock creates a far more comfortable barrier for your skin, in comparison to most walker boot linings. This closed-toe, stretch tube sock is made of a cotton, polyester, lycra, and spandex blend, which is soft against your skin. While the 100% synthetic fibers allow for superior moisture absorption to keep your foot and leg dry, the thick cushioned-knit provides optimal warmth and comfort. In addition, the thick knit padding also helps to prevent any uncomfortable rubbing that can cause blisters.
Without feeling constrictive, the improved cross stretch fabric provides better compression to decrease the risk of friction and lessens the risk of your sock bunching. In addition to compression, the superior knit material also provides targeted heat retention to improve circulation around your sore foot, ankle, and leg, which reduces swelling and encourages blood flow to speed up your healing process.
Unlike most types of medical supply socks, walker boot covers, linings or sleeves, you can wash this replacement sock in your washing machine and dry on low heat for quick and easy cleaning.
People with diabetes often struggle with infection, ulcers and other foot injuries due to peripheral neuropathy or poor circulation in their feet. Peripheral neuropathy refers to a condition where nerve damage causes the loss of sensation in the extremities. This might also cause pain that might be described as burning, sharp or electric in addition to extreme sensitivity to touch, lack of coordination or changes in the skin, hair or nails.
Medical socks, like these, keep your foot dry, encourage good blood circulation, and can be helpful in warding off this condition or for providing relief from its symptoms. For this reason, diabetic socks are often recommended by most physicians. And these stockings for walker boot use or diabetes come with a very affordable price tag.
Who can wear it? Designed for both men and women, this universal sock can be worn by anybody.
How do I know what size to get? These walker boot socks are one size fits most and available in 1 height only, making your decision as simple as choosing between the single or 2-pack option.

Will this medical sock fit my left or right foot? Yes.
How do I put it on? Insert your injured foot inside the sock, and gently slide the sock up your leg, smoothing out any wrinkles.

What conditions does this universal sock treat? These socks are intended to help reduce skin irritation while wearing a foot brace or walking boot. However, its mild compression also makes it useful for diabetes, leg fatigue, foot, ankle and leg swelling, circulatory problems, after foot surgery, edema, and neuropathy.
What material is this sock made of? Latex-free, 100% synthetic knit material.
When should I wear it? This lightweight sock can be comfortably worn comfortably for all-day use with or without a walking boot.
