I did not buy these compression socks for myself. I bought them for a co worker who was suffering daily in the general area of the side of her foot. She could only walk short distances before shooting pain began. She would have to ice her foot throughout the day. I suggested an ace bandage of sorts to help give her support as it will be weeks before her doctor can see her. I started with ace bandage socks & kept scrolling until I found these foot sleeves. I read the reviews & it seemed like a perfect match. She put them on immediately. By end of day, she was still walking, had not had to ice her foot & the shooting pain had decreases to a dull ache. They may not solve your problem, but they certainly may help.
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!
