The socks did their job beautifully

I bought a pair of the 15-20mmHg Classic Compression socks to wear while flying between Auckland and North Carolina for a business trip. Approximately 25 hours of travel end to end each way. I wore the socks while travelling and for a short walk after arriving, then not at all for the rest of the week. The socks did their job beautifully. My feet and calves swelled very slightly, just enough to indicate that without the socks they would have swelled much more. I wasn’t at all uncomfortable, none of that pressurised “tight skin” feeling I experienced on my last long haul trip. A slight struggle to get on, as it should be with compression clothing and once on the socks are very comfortable to wear. They feel very well made everyday socks. Vastly different than the socks we purchased for my wife to wear post-surgery. I’ll pass these onto her to try and probably lose them.
