I have now purchased 2 pairs of these compression sleeves and love them. I had ankle replacement surgery in late June and began using the sleeve to provide comfort and swelling control when I began weight bearing again late August. They provide just the right amount of support, are light weight, and are not irritating to the skin like heavier elastic sleeves. I wash them along with other 'delicates' and air dry them. I found the size chart to be accurate. The purple color is somewhat more 'sedate' than pictured - attractive and not flashy. The black is also more subdued than it appears. So glad I chose these and recommend them for their comfort and effectiveness.
These are comfy to me. The firmness for me is not very tight at the ankle area as I would like (I am shoe size 6 1/2)- but tight at the ends. They do provide nice support and can be slept in, and worn with shoes which is my main purpose for when my ankle is tired or I will be doing lifting. I will order more in the future.
I really didn't have any faith in these socks when I ordered them. I have been to several doctors about the foot pain I have been going through. Nothing worked with what they came up with. I thought for the price of these socks I would give them a shot. I can honestly say they work. I only wear one sock on my left foot. Give them a chance you can only lose pain.
They were very hard to get on my feet.. I gave up when I first got them and tried again today. Once on they were comfortable and the open toe make them far more breathable. Seem to be well manufactured and sturdy material.. I figured they were going to rip trying to get them on my feet.. lolBut as far as quality.. a solid 5 star rating is appropriate!
I am truly happy I came across this product; however, I do not have Plantar Fasciitis or need Arch Support. I do have tendonitis and in looking for a compression sock for tendonitis, well, I could not find one. I was directed to use an elastic bandage, which I did try. Try getting THAT into your shoe! Then I came across the Blitzu socks. They work perfectly! Thank you!
