VIM & VIGR's New & Improved Wool Compression Socks

Great news, VIM & VIGR fans—our new and improved wool collection have finally arrived! What do we mean by “new and improved?” Well, we think that compression socks should always be effective, stylish, and durable. For those of us in the colder parts of the country (or world for that matter), they are staples during the winter time; a good pair of warm, knee-high compression socks can be worn on the slopes, on runs, around the house, at the office, and more! With this in mind, our team went back to the drawing board and reworked our wool socks to reinforce the foot bed, toe, and heel with even more strength and comfort to last you all season long. Just like all of VIM & VIGR’s gear, these socks work to reduce spider and varicose veins, inhibit swelling, and alleviate leg soreness and heaviness.

Our three brand new women’s Fair-Isle designs come in navy and orange, black and blue, and charcoal and purple! We are really excited about these new designs because they truly are VIM & VIGR through and through. They’re stylish enough to sport in class, to work, or out on the town, and they’re durable enough to wear while skiing, running or traveling. Rest assured, VIM & VIGR’s compression socks bring together both beauty and brains, making them a smart choice for any lifestyle.

If you’ve been prepping for holiday travels or searching for functional stocking stuffers, we recommend you check out our enhanced wool collection. Which is your favorite design?

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:

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.
