I have big calves and the other compression socks would leave painful red marks around the band line. These don't do that, YAY! They are comfortable all day and the swelling in my legs after long day is much reduced. I love them!
Never tried compression socks before and I expected them to be uncomfortable, but boy was I wrong! I put them on to try them before bed and didn't want to take them off! I slept in them! I was shocked that I didn't overheat, as i usually sleep without socks. My husband thought I was crazy! Kept them on until the next afternoon and I have to say I think they energized me! I'm usually very active and on my feet most of the day and I also have small varicose veins and a bunch of spider veins, so by night time my feet are in pain! These socks help ait. My only issue is with how tall they are. They come half way up my knee cap, so they can get a bit bothersome behind the knee, which is when I fold them down a bit. Not sure if there are shorter versions, that would be nice. I'm 5'4" for reference
Wirecutter 's recommendation was spot on. Comfortable to wear, launder well (hang to dry).
Great fit great look I get compliments from strangers on them and asked where did I get them.
Comfortable and stylish
So far I have been happy with the socks. Seem to be doing what I had hoped
