Great Socks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I have a couple pairs of compression socks and these are my favorite. Fits similar to other Smartwool socks. Compression is great and sock is comfortable. I find them very helpful for long runs and recovery.

Great compression

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I just received this sock and love it so far. I wear a women's 10 and based on the size chart, it said to order a L. I have pretty narrow feet and skinny legs, so I decided to go down a size to M. The sock fits perfect and offers great compression, glad I sized down. Very impressed. I haven't tried other brands, so I can't compare against anything else, but completely satisfied here.

Awesome compression

  • Fit: True to size

I love hanging out at work helping customers out, but after a while, sitting at a desk can takes its toll on my feet.

Sitting down disrupts the circulation to your legs, so sometimes it's nice to have a little extra help with the compression to keep the blood moving.
For a while, I even had a short bout with "chillblains", a medical condition that occurs when cold weather and poor circulation damage capillary beds in the skin(swollen, painfully itchy toes)
Wore these compression socks for a week and problem solved!

I wear a size 8.5/9 men's size, and the mediums were perfect.

Also, be sure to first bunch the sock up, and then slowly work the socks over your feet and up your leg to prevent the sock from ripping

Great for running recovery so far

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I was very skeptical with compression equipment and the cost:benefit payoff. These socks have me thinking about buying compression tights now. I have not run in these socks yet, but I have used them about 8 times now for recovery right after my post-run shower. My feet and calves are ready to go the next day for training and are noticeably less sore than my quads and hammies. I have the black pair and they feel great and can blend in as work socks (I have worn them to client meetings). They are a little tough to get on, but once you get used to it it is not so bad. I wear mine for 3-6 hours after a run and have not experienced any pinching, pulling, or over compression on my feet or calves. I have only washed them 2 times now and they have held up so far. I highly recommend these socks for if you need to do training on back-to-back days. They are also comfortable enough that I wear them on airplane trips to keep my blood flowing and/or recover. The sale price also makes them one of the better deals for compression socks to begin with.

Squeezy Socks

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I am an RN and am on my feet 13 hours a day. My legs feel a whole lot spunkier at the end of the day when I am sporting these bad boys. Not to mention they are excellent for all the groovy sporty things I like to do.

awesome

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've bought these a few times now as I use them frequently for my winter outdoor adventures. Recommend sizing up if you're on the fence between sizes. I'm a size 8.5/9 and found the large to be the dialed fit.

They are socks :)

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My wife uses these when she works because she has to stand all day long. They seem to help with her circulation while squeezing her legs off!
