    Soft top/non elastic trainer liners 15th Mar 17 at 8:20 AM
    For my mum due to medical issues cannot wear normal socks as they get too tight.

    Saw a pair on Amazon - £18 for one pair!!! She's willing to pay that for six pairs - soft top socks are expensive as it is

    If she's after trainer liners, just buy an ordinary pair of socks and cut off the tops, including the elasticated bits. A quick bit of hemming or overstitching if they look like fraying and the problem's sorted.

    OP, I dont find trainer liners to be tight or elasticy if you know what I mean, has your mum tried the usual ones or does she definitely need non elastic ones? I use these https://www.sockshop.co.uk/by_type/tights-legwear/shoeliners/
