I would love to find some socks to keep my feet warm. But I can't. My feet will only fit in men's slippers. No socks i have tried are wide enough to fit my ankle. It is so large and it hangs over my foot. Does anyone have any idea's? I tried to buy anklets. But they were to tight and tended to slip in the overhang fold. Really hurts :(

Hi Cindy,
I know only too well about searching for socks. I have the exact same problem that you have. I was fortunate enough to find diabetic socks which are very stretchy. They come in regular length , which are too tight but also in the ankle length which do work. Actually, I found them in the Dollar Store which was really a bargain! :D I think I bought about 18 pairs and hope they last me for quite awhile. Unfortunately, my feet are still cold all winter, but short socks are better than no socks!

Good luck to you!
