Finally a comfortable pair of compression socks
on April 27, 2014
I've been looking for a comfortable pair of compression socks for a few years for travel on airplanes. Even a short flight causes my feet to swell something fierce. However, I have not been able to find a comfortable pair until now. And they look good too! The description for these isn't really good so I'm listing what is on the wrapper of mine. I have a 7M/7.5M foot with 14.5" calf and I bought the Small/Medium. The wrapper states that the Small/Medium fits Women's shoe size 4 to 7.5. I had thought about getting the next size up since I'm on the edge of the size range but I am glad I went with the Small/Medium as I think the foot would have been way too big in the next size. The website just says 'synthetic' for the material which really isn't true. It is 32% merino wool, 31% rayon from bamboo, 32% stretch nylon and 5% spandex so the majority of the sock is all natural. The foot is slightly padded so your shoes may fit a little snugger unless you have something like Dansko. And....the socks are made in the USA. I couldn't be more thrilled. And while the socks may seem to be a little expensive they are are a high quality sock and worth the few extra dollars. I've lost count of how many 'cheap' socks I've thrown out.
