    Hello there!
    I’m wondering… My mom is 84 and not really an athlete (LOL) but she does have swollen ankles all the time. I’m sure it’s due to poor circulation. As I read your post I wondered if they could help her too? Would she wear them at night when she sleeps or better to wear them during the day?

      Thank you, Jackie, for your comment.

      Yes,  compression socks can help swollen ankles. But she should not sleep in it before she asks doctor about it.

      Leg compression is highly beneficial to your health as it increases blood circulation to the extremities.In
      part because of gravity, blood tends to accumulate in the legs,
      especially the lower part. This occurs both when a person is at rest and
      when exercising. By wearing compression socks, you can help improve blood
      flow to your legs.

      But of course, like all socks and clothes, she needs to feel comfortable in it and .it´s wise to get advice from a doctor.

    Great Information on what looks like some fantastic socks to help overall performance and comfort with running.

    I like to go for a run a few times a week so I think it is important to have the correct gear to optimise performance here.

    I will definitely look into sock like this as my feet fatigue a lot whilst running.

    I look forward to some of your future posts.

      Thank you, Chris.

      My advice is that you should try it if your feet fatigue would not be teasing you, and actually, with all the benefit I recommended that you test it even if it was not teasing you because all the pros it has.

    Thanks for a great post which is very helpful and informative. I have noticed recently many more runners out with compression socks but had not tried them myself. Thanks for the information. Do people use them in other situations other than sporty pursuits? Also I saw someone out the other day with a footless compression sock! Do these work in the same way? Thanks again Helpful. Keith

      Compression socks Increase blood flow which is very important for the foot. Like you said, more and more runners use it, and players in other sports too, and it´s reason for it. In few words it just good for your foot. And too, people which work a lot standing or walking to use the blood flow to have fresh legs. For the same reason, many use it in an aeroplane too.

       Footless Compression socks helping calfs too so as you see, we are always helping to blood to flow with all the big benefit of it. Here is a good article about it; https://www.americanvein.com/s…  and you can get good ideas here too https://sportssend.com/what-do

    Hi there,

    This is great socks.

    I am an active runner and I’ll make sure I jog every weekend to keep fit and healthy. After reading your article, I want to try wearing this compression shocks as I can sense it is flexible and more comfortable to your feet.

    And knowing it has the features of anti-bacterial and anti-odor, what’s more can one ask from a pair of sock. That’s great news I have never heard before.

    Great review.

    Thank you for the awesome information! Before coming across this site I had no idea what compression socks even were. But I am sure glad to have read your article as I am on my feet a lot as a teacher and an avid hiker.

    My only concern is that I tend to get very hot feet when I wear socks and shoes. But according to your review, it seems these socks have moisture wicking properties so this is something I will definitely be considering using as it seems the benefits are numerous!

    Thanks again for the information!

      Thank you, David.

      The compression socks will help you your job as a teacher and hiker. Because as a teacher you walk for sure a lot. 

      In my opinion, you don´t need to have worries about the hoot feet. The moisture wicking is brilliant and lets you feel comfortable in the socks.

    A very clear review of hofam graduation compression socks. I think that for the price offered, you really “run” no risk at all. Although the design is an entirely personal taste matter. Why do you call them socks, when they look like stockings? Another thing is, having some extra protection for the heel and toe, does this mean that you will need to have larger shoes than normal?

      Thank you, Jerry.

      Yes, it is an excellent price indeed. Stocking or socks, I think it´s a matter of taste, but most people use the socks words because it is the feeling you have when you put it on.

      About the shoes, no you don´t need larger shoes than usual. Have in mind that if you are in running and walking shoes, it´s important to have them in the correct size, it needs to hold well over your feet.
