I generally make 3-4 long trips to US and UK every year and over the past two year I have been having ankle plain and soreness on my legs as I get off the flight. I recently did a trip to UK and throughout the flight I was wearing them and I can't believe how comfortable these socks are and they work. I did not have any pain in the flight or after the flight. I felt relaxed even after the 23 hour end to end journey.
I've worn these a couple of times to play field hockey, and so far they seem to be doing the job. They are pretty comfortable with no odd seams or joins in the feet to cause discomfort. Seem well made and hopefully will last.
As an intensive care doctor I have to be on my feet all day with swollen feet and ankles. Since I bought compression socks I dont get any swelling. Plus it keeps my calf muscles massaged and I rarely get any pain.
