TXG Diabetic Socks have been specially designed to protect people with diabetes from injury, infection and peripheral oedema (swelling) in the feet, ankles and legs by promoting lower-body blood circulation and alleviating discomfort. Diabetics also frequently suffer from sensitive skin, and our socks are designed to reduce irritation by eliminating the raised seams found on ordinary socks.


The New Zealand government estimates that over 200,000 New Zealanders have been diagnosed with diabetes, with a further 100,000 undiagnosed. This common condition cannot be cured, but with the appropriate care and management, you can live a long and happy life. It’s important to follow the advice of your healthcare provider and to take preventative steps wherever possible to reduce your risk of developing other conditions. Because diabetics are more susceptible to developing blood clots and experiencing nerve damage, the decision to use diabetic socks could save your life.

For many diabetic patients, compression socks can help keep feet and legs healthy, helping them to regain and maintain an active lifestyle. However, not all diabetics should wear compression socks, so it’s essential to seek advice from your doctor before placing your order for diabetic compression socks.


As a diabetic there is an underlying strong probability of developing foot ulcers and serious complications like foot infections. Diabetics are also at risk of decreased blood flow to the legs and feet due to this arterial narrowing. This means that cuts and sores heal slower than they should, and left untreated can lead to gangrene and amputation. Long-term nerve damage in these areas is caused by prolonged exposure to high glucose levels, and the resulting loss of sensation means that often, people with diabetes don’t realise they have a wound until it’s become infected. 

Wearing our diabetic compression socks will help minimise foot injuries, prevent swelling and keep your feet dry and warm. 

Diane's TXG Sock Feedback

"They are great, stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I will always wear them now."


"I've been doing an Alpine tramp over Cascade Saddle in Aspiring National Park & I wore the TXG compression socks. They are great. Stopped my legs from swelling and helped with my bad knee. I endured no lactose build up in my calf muscles despite the very steep ascent and descent. I will always wear them now and have recommended them to my tramping friends."

Reena's TXG Sock Feedback

"After a long shift, my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore."


"After me being on my feet for 24 hours and wearing the TXG compression socks for that length of time; my legs didn’t swell or even feel sore. I wasn’t as physically tired either as I usually would be after working a 12-hour shift at the hospital. The socks are wonderful and far exceeded my expectations."

Aroha's feedback on her TXG sleeves

"I love my arm and calf sleeves, they help me at hockey"


"I purchased some arm sleeves and calf sleeves and love them. Trialled them out last week during my many games of hockey and at an Ultimate Frisbee Tournament to see if they’ll help me at my next hockey tournament and I can safely say yes, I especially love the arm sleeves keeping my forearms from tightening which is so important when dribbling. They also help at the gym during any arm work where I grip tightly and my forearms tighten. Usually, I would fatigue and be forced to stop, but I get far more out of my arms."

Paula's feedback on her TXG socks

"I am able to stand longer during the day and I am less tired at the end of the day."


"Before I started wearing them I would notice that I had a varicose vein that would stand out on my lower leg. I wear my socks all day and at the end of the day when I take them off, there is no vein standing out on my leg. The spider veins are still there but even those are less prominent too I am able to stand longer during the day as well. They are probably one of the best things I have bought."
