Sockwell graduated compression socks help promote circulation, minimize swelling, reduce fatigue, and speed up recovery, while Sockwell relaxed fit diabetic-friendly series offers non-binding, gentle pampering and protection for sensitive feet. All Sockwell series are crafted in the USA of homegrown, fine merino wool (Cashmerino®) with rayon from bamboo or alpaca which help provide natural thermoregulation, moisture management, and odor control.
APMA, founded in 1912, is a leading resource on foot and ankle health information. Starting Summer 2016, all Sockwell graduated compression and relaxed fit diabetic-friendly socks will have the APMA Seal of Acceptance on the packaging and product listings online, showcasing Sockwell’s dedication to helping people of all ages and all walks of life to feel better in style.

“Our vision is to bring modern style, design, color and luxurious performance fibers to a world of mostly medical looking synthetic and cotton product. We strive to create therapeutic performance technology that appeals to everyone, from the 25 year old to the 75+ year old. Whether used proactively or reactively, we offer beautiful products that can help people feel better in style, and that’s something I’m proud to be a part of,” said Mercedes Marchand, VP of Design & Merchandising at Goodhew/Sockwell.

A committee of APMA podiatrists reviewed Sockwell graduated compression and relaxed fit diabetic-friendly socks to ensure they promote foot health. The committee also considered information about Sockwell's evidence of safety, quality control, and other data.

“APMA is proud to offer its Seal of Acceptance to Sockwell's graduated compression and relaxed fit diabetic-friendly socks," said President R. Daniel Davis, DPM. "Consumers can rely upon the seal to identify products, such as Sockwell's collection, that are safe, beneficial, and promote good foot health."

Moving forward, Sockwell will work with APMA to support foot health through continuous improvement and introducing innovative products to the market. Top-selling styles include the Circulator 15-20mmHg Moderate Compression, Elevation 20-30mmHg Firm Compression, and the Kick Back Non-Binding Relaxed Fit.
