These are the best compression socks! As you may have noticed, there are many, many compression socks for sale here on Amazon. I picked a brand, and ordered a pair. This was the third brand I tried, and by far the best. Here’s why:
1. They are the least itchy of the three brands. I get itchy very easy, and these were hands down the best of the three.
2. The bottom of the foot is a little thicker, so it’s more padded. I have noticed a lot less foot pain wearing these. I wear Sanita’s (hard clogs,) so my shoes aren’t the most comfortable for my feet. With these socks there is a big difference. One of the first days that I wore these, I worked a double (16+ hours.) My feet didn’t hurt until I was walking to my car!
3. These are a good height. They come up just below my knees. The other two brands were too long. (I’m 5’3″ and I bought size small.)
I have since bought a total of six pairs and gotten rid of the other brands (one pair I only wore once.) I have recommended these to numerous co-workers, and everyone that has bought them have been very happy with them. I have worn them in -20 weather and 100 weather, and they have been as comfortable as regular socks temp wise. I was them in the washer, and I’ve even put my white ones in loads with bleach. I hang dry them, but a few times they’ve made it in the dryer and been fine. I’ve noticed no shrinking or stretching at all; I bought my first pair three months ago. If you’re considering buying these, do it. I really wish I had bought them years earlier!!
