Converted - Amazing, for anyone with CIPN, these are a very small price to pay for so much benefit.

Being a little stuck in my ways I was a little sceptical about these type of socks. A gimmick perhaps etc.. I've CIPN (Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy), and it's a real nightmare.. "Pain is a great motivator" as they say.. and this is what lead me to these socks.
I can truly say the worst part of many a day was simply putting on my socks. Quite depressing when you think of it... :)
Having spent many hours looking on line, it dawned on me that my situation is quite common and many people also suffer from Neuropathy as a result of diabetes. If you are new to CIPN, then look into Diabetes Neuropathy, there's much info on products etc..
Anyways, I digress... These socks are fantastic... From the first, putting them on was a joy, they just slid over my feet, not too tight, my toes not jumping with the touch and over my ankles it felt smooth. It's difficult to describe how much a relief it is.
Tenderness in the end of my toes has been a nightmare of an issue. I can report that tenderness at the end of the toes has been significantly reduced, to the point that most days I rarely notice it... Incredible.. Okay, the other aspects of neuropathy are still there, but to me these socks form part of the arsenal in tackling the issue, there's no single solution. My feet feel warm, I'm pretty sure as a result of improved circulation, maybe I don't know I'm no doctor, but it feels good.. The socks ride down very slightly at the top after a few hours, but nothing too much and nothing that so far has become a problem. I use them in my Scarpa Cyrus Mid GTX walking boots, and don't feel the need to get thicker socks... Possibly a little thin for walking in the winter months in boots, I'm not sure as it's early days, but so far these sock have been a blessing.
I'm wearing them to bed too :) I'm sure many with PN will identify that the weight of a duvet or blanket causes discomfort. I have a heated blanket with separate feet and body warmth which is great, but so far with these socks I just pull my duvet up beyond my feet, with no underneath blanket heating and my feet feel warm and free.
I hope this helps, I'm a little shocked as to the difference these socks have made. :)
