Exciting news: Compression socks have come to The Sock Drawer! Maybe you’ve heard about this popular wellness trend and the ways compression socks can help sore, tired or swollen feet. Our socks — from top-quality brand Sockwell — do all that, and they look great at the same time. Read on to learn why we picked out these amazing products to join our ranks!
Benefits of Compression Socks
Put simply, compression socks apply pressure to your feet and legs to improve blood flow. They have been around for decades, usually recommended by medical pros for folks who were prone to circulation issues, but in recent years they have surged hugely in popularity as all kinds of people have realized their benefits.
They are a great choice for:
- Prolonged periods of sitting or standing.
- Other circumstances that might lead to your feet being sore, swollen or excessively tired.
For instance, compression socks are extremely popular for nurses who spend long shifts on their feet, runners and other athletes who want some extra support, and people who fly frequently.
How do they work?
Compression socks apply firm but comfortable pressure in graduated panels to different areas of your lower legs and feet. This prevents blood from pooling in the feet, which can cause swelling, soreness and fatigue. Pretty simple, huh?
Many people who try out compression socks tend to be surprised how such a simple concept can make such a huge difference in their comfort. A little bit of moderate pressure can be enough to really boost your quality of life.
