What are compression travel socks?
Compression socks are specially designed socks that apply pressure (compress) your ankles and feet to keep your blood moving so it does not pool or linger in one place.
How does a compression sock work?
Travel compression socks are worn high up on the calves, constructed to be tightest around your feet and gradually have less tension as they move up your legs. The effect is to relax flow in arteries and more easily carry oxygen-rich blood to your extremities, and boost flow in veins to return oxygen-poor blood to your heart.
Why do I need compression socks for travel or flying?
Sometimes when you sit inactive for a long time, blood does not flow as efficiently to all parts of your body, especially your hands and feet. Blood that "pools" in these areas can create swelling, discomfort, or, in the worst cases make it easier for blood clots to get stuck. Therefore it's absolutely critical to keep your blood circulating efficiently. Compression socks are a great way to do this.
Are flight socks the same as compression socks?
Flight socks can mean many different things, while compression socks are very particular. Make sure that your sock is clearly labeled as a compression sock to ensure the function is present.
Can I wear these compression travel socks on a daily basis?
If you find you have poor circulation, wearing compression socks on a daily basis may be quite beneficial. In fact, athletes wear compression socks or arm bands to help increase their circulation and improve performance.
How should I choose the right size?
We offer either Medium or Large sizes that cover a range of feet. Please consult the size chart. Of course, compression socks will feel tighter than typical socks, so bear that in mind if you have concerns about comfort.
Are these compression travel socks odor-free?
We do not currently sell compression socks with an odor-free finish. However, if odor-resistance if a priority for you, then we recommend our merino wool travel sock. Merino wool is naturally odor-resistant.
Is it comfortable to wear compression travel socks for a long-haul flight?
In fact, long-haul flights are the ideal time to wear compression socks. The longer the flight the more time you will be sitting inactive, and the more potential there is for adverse consequences of poor circulation.
Are these compression travel socks breathable?
We have used an ultraspun nylon polyester blend to ensure that the socks are comfortable and breathable. However, if breathability is your primary concern, we recommend the merino wool travel sock. Merino wool has natural temperature-regulation capabilIties.
