#DadNeedsSocks

Whether he’s suit-and-tie savvy or football jersey-clad, your dad’s got style. His socks, however, could always use an upgrade. This Father’s Day, give your dad a high-quality gift that he’ll get some serious wear out of, from the office to the trails – surprise him with a pair of VIM & VIGR compression socks! You might be thinking: socks?! We get it, socks don’t sound like a very exciting gift. Our compression socks, however, are far from ordinary. They will help energize his legs, prevent swelling, alleviate achiness and heaviness, prevent and reduce spider and varicose veins and aid in muscle recovery. Need more convincing? Well, your #DadNeedsSocks if:

  1. His socks are filled with holes. Your dad would do anything for you and when you need his help, he puts everything else on the backburner, including his own essentials. A pair of high-functioning compression socks will look better, last longer and show him that you care.
  2. He has poor circulation. Healthy blood circulation is essential for everything from your mobility to overall comfort. Our mild-moderate compression (15-20 mmHg) are perfect for giving his circulation a boost, and are comfortable enough for all day, everyday wear.
  3. His socks never match. We know how it goes, your dad comes to visit and just as he goes to sit down, he unabashedly flashes his mismatched socks. Giving your dad a stylish pair of new socks is the perfect way to start his fashion intervention.
  4. He travels all the time. From waiting in long lines to sitting in cars, planes or trains for hours on end, traveling can get the best of his circulation. Our compression socks will boost his circulation through it all while keeping him comfy and stylish.
  5. He’s super active. Whether it’s in the great outdoors or at the gym, your dad loves nothing more than being active (except for you, of course!). Intense workouts take a toll on everyone, but good pair of compression socks will speed up his muscle recovery so he doesn’t have to fall behind on his fitness routine.
  6. He puts in a lot of time at the office. When it comes to long commutes, endless hours behind a desk or rushing around from meeting to meeting, our compression socks are an easy fix for the leg fatigue he experiences throughout his day at work.

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.

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.
