I originally bought this product for support when doing my morning run on my treadmill and to help with varicose veins. They have provided an added benefit however. I have recurring bursitis below my right knee that is quite painful and often swells. I have a very active life and cannot afford to be off my feet for the amount of time it takes to ease the pain and I loathe having to take ibuprofen too often. I started wearing these socks and the pain and swelling all but disappear! No more pain and seldom do I need ibuprofen! Additionally, customer service is excellent.
Very comfortable socks. I am supposed to be wearing, daily, a medical grade compression sock of 30-40 mmhg. Sometimes these are so tight that my legs ache badly. I then switch off to these socks, with a grade of 20-30 mmhg, and they are such a comfort!! They provide adequate support, fit perfectly, and I like them so much that I now have 9 pairs of them. I have recommended these socks to several friends who are now wearing them as well. Thanks so much for a great product. P.S. Easy to clean, just throw them in the washing machine, and AIR DRY afterwards. They will retain their shape and look and feel as good as brand new!
I took these right out of the box and put them on, Wow, so comfortable! I have a hole in the tendon of my foot which causes my foot, ankle and calf to swell. The other calf has started to swell a little too because I walk crooked. These socks feel amazing, soft, not too hard to get on, and went over my swollen calves without too much effort. My feet and calves are so warm and not in pain, I think they have been hurting so long I forgot what normal feels like. I will eventually have an operation on my tendon, but will have to wear the annoying boot so I have been putting it off. These socks are a god send. I don't know how they will wash, but they seem pretty sturdy.
Love these!!! Working in a hospital my legs and ankles swell less.
Help with arch support (I wear barefoot shoes). Material is nice and are comfy!
Comfort- can wear about 12 hours and not itchy or falling down. My legs feel great after a long shift on my feet.
For working out- use them to bike. Can feel the breeze through these and cools me off. For climbing they are good too! Especially with the extra stress on my feet.
Warmth- not warm. But a thin cotton sock over top makes them warm for the winter!
I HIGHLY recommend these!!! They are made for long days (most fall down or get itchy). I’ve tried a lot of compression socks. These win.
Do NOT put in the dryer like I did. They will shrink. But stretch back out! (Probably got less life out of them though) So again material is GREAT.
I’m extremely hesitant buying compression stockings because my calves are on the bigger side. These are extremely comfortable and the perfect amount of tightness without being uncomfortable. I’m a nurse and am on my feet a lot so comfort means a lot. So far I have worked 5+ shifts in them and they have been great. 10/10 recommend.
I was expecting these to be pretty uncomfortable but the amount of pressure is actually just right. That being said, if you are expecting very tight socks then these might not be for you. As a bonus they also look very cool.
I like the compression socks, they are well made and strong. The only thing about them that I don't like is the compression, it is a bit too much. That is not a fault in the design or manufacture of the socks. The maker stated the level of compression that one should expect so the fault is entirely mine, I ordered too high a number for compression but even so I do get use from them and they are comfortable for day time use. So if you want strong compression then I recommend them.
Even though I ordered L/XL, these still seemed extremely tight especially around the knees. I’m working from home and wore them for most of the day, it was a relief to take them off. I will persevere with them tough as they were good for the rest of my legs.
If you're tired of the regular black compression hose this is your go-to. They fit like a dream and do exactly what you expect. I have been a nurse for 35 years and I wouldn't live without them.
I’m very pleased with these socks overall. They feel like good quality, and are neither too thick or too thin. They offer good support for days when I am on my feet for long hours.
I do wish the feet were a little more easily customized. They fit my size 10 feet a little large, and are a little short In the calf. That said, I will buy them again. They feel like good quality, and do their job.
I was experiencing swelling in my left ankle . Went to the foot doctor an discovered it was vascular . He suggested compression socks for work as I’m a cashier in a grocery store and am on my feet all day. Had worn them yrs ago an wasn’t happy with the prospect of them again. I love these! They are so comfortable and I noticed a difference in my ankle swelling and pain the first day! An if you’re thinking of buying these these are the numbers my doctor had suggested for the compression!
I'm a nurse with varicose veins, (no pain or swelling from it) but I work 12+ hours a shift and my feet are killing by the time I go home.
I have tried different compression socks and these are by far the best. The compression is truly 20-30, they don't cut off circulation and the length is perfect stopping at the back of my knee. The compression is so supportive, they stay in place and don't roll down like others. The colors are vibrant I hope they make more colors soon:)
At the end of each shift, I can honestly say I don't have the foot pain like before and I do have more energy. Highly recommend.
I broke 2 bones in my foot in April and it's been a long recovery. I only recently started walking without any type of cast or boot, and while I'm making great progress, my foot was often more swollen in the morning than when I went to sleep at night. It also hurt during the night. My physical therapist suggested wearing a compression socks. These fit perfectly. They are tight enough to ease the soreness in my foot at night as it adjusts to new positions, but not so tight that I feel like I'm wearing a cast or boot all over again. I have much less foot swelling in the morning. The cheerful colors help me feel less like I'm still wearing a medical device. I plan to use them in the future when I fly anywhere.
Love these compression socks. They fit good and have just enough compression without being too tight. They are knee high and stay in place all day. They are heavier than a stocking which is great for the cooler weather. I am a plus woman, wear a size 10 shoe. I got the L/XL. I just ordered another set in black.
These stockings are the best compression stockings I have worn in the 30+ years of wearing stockings of this type. The fact that they are fashionable looking helps too. Unlike stockings purchased in a medical device store, there is something about the feeling of your legs being gently held that makes them comfortable to wear. The other type of stockings are thick and uncomfortable to the point I would have to take them off mid-day. Not so with these. You can't beat the price either. I machine wash in cold water in a mesh bag and hang to dry. If you have never worn compression stockings, please educate yourself on how to put them on correctly. They are tight going on and you have to get the toe and heel area just right before you proceed to adjusting the rest of the stocking. The package does not come with directions and you should never fold the top over or think they should fit like knee highs or knee socks and pull them up too vigorously. Worn correctly you will find they work wonders for you.
I started noticing swollen and aching ankles around 30 weeks. I tried support hose and couldn’t handle the effort required to shimmy into full tights. The great reviews pulled me towards compression socks. Previously I associated compression socks with old diabetic men in strapless sandals. Well with my pride sailing out the door I thought I’d give them a try. I’m so happy that I did. I’ve worn them all day at work, just when I get home, and overnight. Whe wearing them all day I find that I can stay on my feet at least 1-2 hours longer. If these socks don’t jive with your work apparel, I found a lot of relief by putting them on when I get home and wearing them until bed (better than the 20 minutes I was “putting my feet up” for relief). Lastly, I tried wearing them overnight to see if they’d help with my hip and knee pain. No results there unfortunately. Overall, I find that my ankles have been staying pre-Preggo slender and I do not have ankle aches first thing in the morning. For the price it’s worth a shot. I wear women’s 10-11 (41-42) and have wider than average calves. I bought the L/XL and am happy with the fit. I wish I ordered a 6 pack from the get go. I’ll be ordering the multicolored 6 pack ASAP.
These socks are fantastic. I ordered an xl. They were so comfy. Perfectly supportive, yet didn't leave my legs with painful marks. I highly recommend these. No static cling. Comfortable for 10+ hour shifts.
Put them on and the foot and leg pain calm down. Work great. Just don’t like the tight area on toes but not a real issue. I have diabetic nerve pain and these really make a difference in day to day activity and sleeping.
These are my first pair(s) of compression stockings. I like how they came in a 3-pack and at a great price. They are easy to put on, not too tight, and nice material. At only 27 years old, I noticed some spider veins popping up. I am a nurse and on my feet 12+ hours during a shift. I need to start taking care of my feet/legs and this is the first step! About to work out with them on.
