These circulation-enhancing socks earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because they provided superior compression and moisture wicking. A testing laboratory specializing in textiles evaluated the socks for compression and moisture wicking capabilities. The Best model demonstrated the best compression difference of 30% tighter around the ankle than the calf—far superior to other socks with only 1% and 5% compression difference. The 10-20 mmHg compression improves blood circulation, reduces lactic acid build up, and aids muscle recovery. The Best model wicked moisture 68 mm, 68% better than other models and more than 7X greater wicking power than other socks. The socks’ superior comfort is provided by woven supports in the ankles and arches and additional padding in the heels, toes, and balls of the feet. Made from a blend of nylon and spandex. White or Black. Shoe sizes S (Men’s 3-5 1/2; Women’s 5-7), M (Men’s 6-8 1/2; Women’s 8-10 1/2), L (Men’s 9-11 1/2; Women’s 11-12 1/2), XL (Men’s 12-14).

They are the Best
from Nanaimo, BC
Delivery was fast and accurate. Well packed. The socks are excellent - supportive without being tight and restrictive. They are comfortable and could be worn all day and every day. I got them for travelling, but will definitely wear them when I expect to be standing for long periods.
from Jonesboro, AR
Catalog description is accurate. Less binding tops are excellent

Comfort, Comfort, Comfort
By Needing Support
from Northfield, MN
These socks are easy to put on, comfortable all day, and easy to get off at the end of the night. They don't sweat in boots like socks with too much elastic "grab."
from Boston, MA

By Carolina Kent

This is the first time I have ever worn circulation socks. Still have to get used to putting them on. Wore them on a 5k race, and they felt fine.

Not So Much
from San Antonio
I wanted the superior compression promised in the advertised description. Period. There is no compression. Period.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have tried them on
By Larry S
I tried them on once and they seem to fit fine. The true test for me will be on the long flights I take every few months.
