Rated4out of5byKaren the Blessedfromdefinitely compression socks!AS a middle-ager with bilateral lower extremity swelling with airline travel and extended motorcycle trips I was looking for a sporty compression knee-hi. It is definitely a good compression sock--difficult to get on and very tight as are medical compression hose. for my use it was overkill and painful. within an hour of wearing it on a recent motorcylce trip I could feel a potential hot spot. despite my loosening the buckle on my boot, by the end of our first day of riding--about 8 hours--my left achilles was hurting, pain was shooting up my calf and I was limping. fortunately, I was mostly recovered by the next am and wore a lighter style of compression knee-hi that did the trick for me. If you are looking for a truly excellent compression running sock this may be a good product for you.
