If you have an injured ankle that is swollen or you are unable to move (sprain, pulled tendons requiring stabilization, or a break), it can be quite hard to get your sock on without causing pain or further injury. Try a pair of diabetic socks. They can be purchased at any store that sells regular socks and some drugstores as well. They are roomier and made out of a stretchier weave. They come in men's and women's sizes and can really make taking care of an injured foot or ankle easier and more comfortable. The foot part of the sock is also very cushioned.
