These socks are the best!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs small
I ordered these socks from another site to use at work -- I'm a NICU nurse and I spend 8-12 hours on my feet every day. I used to wear compression socks all the time at work, but I hated the synthetics that made my legs itch and my feet sweat. Smartwools have been my go to socks for over 10 years, and when I found out they made compression socks, I jumped on it!
They are a lighter compression than most compression socks, but they are more than sufficient to reduce fatigue and swelling. I'm now 21 weeks pregnant, and they're still doing their job! And bonus: My feet don't stink and dry quickly when sweaty from running all over the place. I couldn't be happier, so I'm back here to order more pairs to wear every day, even when I'm not at work!
Since they are compression socks, order up if you're on the high end of a size. I also don't put them through the dryer -- I wash on warm and line dry them overnight to reduce any chance of shrinking. You won't be disappointed!
comfy sock, light compression
I bought this sock for the mix of compression and merino (breathability plus anti-stink). I'd say the compression is pretty light compared to the non-merino compression socks I have. Definitely a tighter fit than normal socks, but not as compressive as the others I have.
