I’ve never had a problem, sitting at my desk all day long, but I recently started getting pains in my foot and my toes would go numb. My brain went straight to worst possible scenarios – blood clot, pinched nerves, etc. After calming down a little, I started trying things I had control over: checked my posture, made sure I was sitting correctly, monitors, keyboard, and mouse all at proper positions. After a couple weeks of that, nothing changed. I saw these compression socks and figured I’d give them a try. They actually have so many purposes that fit my bill, so even if they didn’t help my antsy feet, I could use them for other things.
The product came in a simple bag – probably saves a lot of money not having them in a box. Pulling them, I immediately felt some high quality fabrics. The socks actually feel like a second skin – and tough enough that I don’t fear wearing through the heels anytime soon.
Getting the socks on took a lot more effort than I thought they would, but once on, I felt like I was wearing some high tech Star Wars socks or something. The socks are very comfortable and feel like nothing short of high performance clothing.
In the first day, I felt a difference. I felt like my legs were willing and able to run me across campus if needs be. Had no soreness or numbing, which was nice – it was the first time in about a week that my legs felt that good.
After wearing and washing these for a couple days, the fabric continued to hold up well. There was no peeling (when the fabric gets little tiny balls of fabric forming) visible, which means more praise from me.
