My last trip of 5 hrs on a plane really felt more comfortable with these socks. They look great and not like medical socks. I don’t have a medical problem with my legs but I really felt like they made a difference after flying 5 hours. I do get up and move while on the flight, which is suggested by most doctors for your circulation, but these are my first compression socks. I will buy more. I see the benefits on long flights.
