  • Ideal for long-distance travel, compression socks help increase blood flow and decrease swelling when seated for long periods at a time
  • Gradient compression is greatest at the ankles and gradually decreases toward the tops of the socks; blood pushes upward toward your heart, maximizing circulation
  • Moderate (15 - 20 mmHg) compression is recommended for all-day and everyday wear, prolonged sitting or standing, travel, exercise and recovery, and minor to moderate swelling
  • Wool, nylon, bamboo and spandex blend together for fabric that fits snugly, wicks moisture, dries quickly and naturally resists odor
  • Seam-free toe closures minimize chafing; contoured heels offer a close fit
  • Knit spandex bands in arches provide support and reduce sock slippage on the foot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for hiking, even on a hot day Compression socks are a must for me on a daily basis given my history of sprains, etc. I was looking for a good compression sock to use for hiking. I wore these for a long day of hiking with a good bit of altitude gain. It was hot out and I thought these might be too warm - but they were just fine. My feet hurt but it was not from the socks or shoes, just from the actual hike. I felt like I might have a blister, but when I took the socks off, there was no blister. There was minimal swelling. These run true to size and cover your entire calf up to the knee (and I'm 5'10"). I will use them for hiking, travel and probably for just plain every day use. These are a good purchase for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compression Socks I went to Thailand and my ankles were badly swollen by the end of the flight, so I bought these compression socks to help with swelling while flying from SFO to SYD Australia and they did their job! My ankles were not swollen when I arrived in SYD. I would recommend these socks! Very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snowboarding Socks I bought these for snowboarding. I am hard to fit - I'm a female with size 5 feet but 16.5" calves. These fit perfectly and were very comfortable for snowboarding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought some for work/will buy more for running As a professional courier and blood clot survivor, these socks are perfect for me. They look good and provide the right amount of compression during my work hours. I'm also an ultra runner, so I'll definitely be buying more of these. Had bought other Sockwells in the past, but not the compression socks. Definitely recommend them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from compression I bought these for when I am on an airplane. I might use them more often but that I do not know at this time. I did try them on to see how they felt. They were very comfortable. Like compression socks they take a skill to get them on perfect. I could feel them working.

What is the calf circumference of these socks?

Asked by: BurtonJRT
I just measured my calf with the socks on and my calf is 19" I, too, was concerned about whether the sock would fit my calf, but they work. I bought two more pairs today because they fit and I need them to help my lymphedema.
