VIM & VIGR Announces Debut Men's Line of Compression Socks

It’s been a long time coming, and the time has finally arrived! Since our debut collection launched last year, we’ve had some incredible feedback on our lifestyle compression socks. From expecting moms to athletes, nurses to stylists and everyone in between, there has been such overwhelming support for our little brand. It was when we started getting feedback from women that the men in their lives were starting to steal their socks that we decided we couldn’t let the ladies have all the fun. We are so excited to share our debut men’s collection!

These brand new nylon compression socks for men are available in a thin stripe pattern with a classic black and brick color combination or stylish charcoal and yellow.  With the same 15-20 mmHg graduated compression and advanced Gradient Pressure™ knitting technology as our other lines, these knee-high socks ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness all day long. This new collection for men features a flexible toe pocket, fitted heel and contoured leg, for increased relief and to support a healthy lifestyle. The compression in these socks is tightest at the ankle and lessens as it continues up the leg to improve circulation.

Men, (or ladies who may have some say in the sock drawer of their man) make some room in your sock drawer for a serious upgrade from those hole-y, white tube socks that you bought in college. Our highly functional compression socks work to prevent blood clots, aid in muscle recovery, alleviate achiness and heaviness, inhibit swelling, and reduce the appearance of spider and varicose veins. Whether you spend most of your time at a desk, traveling, or training at the gym – these socks help to increase the circulation of freshly oxygenated blood, leaving legs feeling energized and rejuvenated. Graduated compression socks are proven to decrease exercise-induced muscle soreness and shorten recovery times.

For those workaholics, it only takes 90 minutes of sitting for the blood flow below your knees to decrease by 50%, which can lead to vascular injury and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Standing for long periods at a time isn’t any better – being on your feet all day increases leg pain, swelling, and achiness. Make your after work activities a little easier with more leg energy from the graduated compression in our new men’s collection. Be on the lookout for the other compression socks for men coming soon including the argyle pattern in wool and the striped cotton line!

Sizing, Fabric & Compression Levels Guide

Size Chart:

We have a different sizing chart depending on the type of compression garment. Please consider your foot and calf circumference when choosing your size.

If you're in between sizes, ask yourself a few questions:
What is my body type? Will I be more comfortable in a size up or down? Take your body type into consideration when choosing a size especially if you're in between sizes.

Garment Care:

Machine wash after each wear, delicate and cold.

Air dry is preferred to maintain the elasticity and quality of fabrics.

Compression Levels:

Compression garments are made in a variety of support levels, each of which is designed to address different needs. These levels are most commonly expressed in millimeters of mercury (abbreviated as mmHg). Generally, graduated compression is displayed in ranges. The higher the numerical value, the stronger the support level indicated. For example, a 20-30 mmHg garment will offer more support and feel tighter than a 15-20 mmHg garment.

All of VIM & VIGR’s products are offered in 15-20 mmHg compression level and select styles are available in 20-30 mmHg.

How to put on compression socks:

Slip your arm into the sock until your fingers reach the toes. Your palm should be resting in the sock's heel. 

Starting at the cuff, fold the sock over until it meets the heel. Make sure to fold the sock onto itself.

With the sock still inverted, pull the foot of the sock firmly onto your foot. Make sure your toes are securely in the toe pocket. Starting with the cuff, gradually roll the sock up.

Adjust so that your heel is properly positioned in the heel pocket and the cuff sits below the knee. Make sure the cuff is not pulled up too high.
