Swollen feet and aching legs can happen to any traveler on long flights or long days of sightseeing. These socks help prevent that by using gradual compression to stimulate blood flow and reduce swelling. Athletes use similar compression gear to speed muscle recovery after strenuous workouts. Compression begins in the midfoot to help support your arch and gradually decreases toward the calf.
These CoolMax®-blend socks keep your feel dry and comfortable too, and don’t sacrifice style. Choose khaki with an argyle pattern, navy with a light blue stripe, or black with a light blue diamond pattern.
Made in Italy. 75% CoolMax®, 15% lycra, 10% nylon. Unisex sizes S (fits women’s sizes 4-7; men’s 3-6), M (women’s 7 1/2-11; men’s 6 1/2-9 1/2), L (women’s 12+; men’s 10–14).
Purchased these to wear on lengthy international flights but found that they were heavier weight and thus warmer than I prefer.
