These socks feature a padded unique sole to provide extra comfort and to make them the ideal choice for outdoor excursions, whether this may be a long distance walk, a stroll over uneven ground or some other active lifestyle pursuit. These unisex compression socks also provide the circulatory and other benefits of graduated compression.
They are latex free, so you won’t have to worry about medical reactions even if you have a history of such allergies. They also feature Y-gore toe and heel pockets for a more natural fit. With these features, these socks will offer you an ultra comfortable graduated compression experience.
The socks also contain a microfiber with advanced moisture wicking capabilities to support high breathability and keep your feet cool and dry throughout the day. They also boast a wide top band to help keep them securely in place through strenuous activity without marking, binding or pinching your skin.
These trouser socks are available in two (2) graduated compression levels: 15-20 mmHg and 20-30 mmHg. You can also buy them in four(4) sizes: small, medium, large and extra large. Colors are black and white.
We suggest you measure for size earlier in the day, when your legs are less likely to be swollen.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
1. Push your hand inside the sock. Pinch the heel and pull the sock partially inside out, so that the foot part remains turned in.
2. Firmly grasping each side of the sock, stretch it over your toes, pull it up to your heel, and adjust it to fit your foot comfortably. At this point, the sock will be on your foot with the leg portion inside out.
3. You can then reach down and pull the leg portion up. Turn the sock right side out one section at a time. You should also stretch the sock and adjust it up your calf as you go.
4. Smooth the hosiery on your leg using both hands in a massaging movement. Ensure that there are no wrinkles.
6. Remove the socks before going to bed, unless your doctor advises otherwise.
