SOCKSHOP announces the endorsement of IOMI FootnurseⓇ Diabetic Socks by The College of Podiatry and highlights key ranges for Spring and Summer

Leading sock and hosiery retailer SOCKSHOP is delighted to announce The College of Podiatry’s endorsement of the IOMI footnurseⓇ Gentle Grip and Cushion Foot Diabetic socks. The endorsement is a huge milestone for SOCKSHOP and the IOMI footnurseⓇ range which are ‘made to care’ and endeavour to help manage symptoms of diabetes while raising awareness of the healthcare benefits of specialised socks.

SOCKSHOP has been cladding the feet of Britain for nearly 40 years with their ever-growing product offering and are delighted to introduce the range of products approved by The College of Podiatry. The College’s panel of experts tried and tested the IOMI footnurseⓇ Gentle Grip and Cushion Foot styles for over 1 month and concluded that they were beneficial to those managing the symptoms of diabetes, approving them to carry The College of Podiatry product endorsement seal of approval. This endorsement will appear on the packaging and sales material for these items. SOCKSHOP is thrilled about the partnership and hope to extend this endorsement across the wider IOMI footnurseⓇ range.

The endorsed products consist of the IOMI footnurseⓇ Gentle Grip Diabetic Socks, which offer the style and comfort of the SOCKSHOP Gentle Grip range plus the benefits of specialised diabetic socks. The extra-wide Honeycomb Top™ gently moulds to legs to stay up all day long without pinching whilst a smooth hand-linked toe seam prevents nicks and sores that could lead to infection.

Also receiving the seal of approval from The College Of Podiatry are the IOMI footnurseⓇ Cushion Foot Diabetic Socks which are designed to manage the symptoms of diabetes and help prevent cuts, sores and infection with FootnurseⓇ Easy Stretch™, cushioned soles, smooth toe seams and extra-wide legs, plus CoolMax fibre and Sanitized™ ActiFresh.

The College is the premier podiatry organisation in the United Kingdom and promotes the highest professional values, practice and standards, as well as enhanced public awareness of good lower-limb health. It campaigns to raise awareness among the general public and at government level that good lower-limb health is essential and that podiatry is a key element of preventative medicine with policies that are informed with the support of the United Kingdom’s most prominent podiatrists, scientists, and researchers.

Commenting on the partnership, Alok Ruia, Director of SOCKSHOP, says: “SOCKSHOP is delighted and very excited to have joined up with The College of Podiatry this year. For our team, it is an honour to have the College acknowledging the value of this range to help improve people’s comfort whilst suffering with diabetes. It has taken SOCKSHOP many years to perfect this range, and it is a testimony to see that the innovation and hardwork has now come to fruition”.

Steve Jamieson, CEO at the College of Podiatry, commented: “At The College of Podiatry, we know all feet are unique. You deserve socks that are right for your feet and that is why we are delighted to be endorsing specialist products from SOCKSHOP.”
