I'm a nurse and I often work 16 hour shifts. I had a really bad accident in 2000 and broke my leg, well crushed my ankle really. I often have pain when walking and a lot of pitted edema at the end of the day. Since I've started wearing these socks, the edema is gone! What i really like is where the extra support is as it goes around my ankle where i have the most pain. I'm 5'4 and I don't have to roll them down!!! That was one of my biggest issues with other graduated compression socks. They stop below my knee, well done blitzu! I got the L/XL pair and they fit perfectly! I just ordered two more pair, thank you!
I use these socks for the first time to run a Spartan race, they hold on and resist the abuse and stood on place the entire 15+ miles, the best part is that the next day I was sore ( of course) but not as much as went have run without these socks...
I'll will buy more and absolutely recommend this socks
I sit at a desk all day and as a result, have terrible swelling in my lower legs, ankles and feet. After removing these socks at home, I can actually see my ankle bones again!!! I have no swelling and no discomfort. My feet, ankles and legs do not feel achy, tired, heavy or full. These, by far, have been the best compression socks I've found!
Simply love these when working on my feet all day. I was a bit skeptical so I wore a regular wool trekking sock on one foot and a Blitzu on the other. I was more than pleasantly surprised at how much better the Blitzu leg and foot felt at the end of the day. There was a huge noticeable difference in the way my feet felt. It sold me. I doubt I will ever wear regular socks again when hiking or working. Compression socks work in a big way and Blitzu's are crazy comfortable and very high quality.
I have been running for 40+ years (60 years old). I started to experience lower leg pain after short 5 10k runs and it was suggested to look into the benefits of a compression sock. After much research I selected the Blitzu knee highs and they seem to help quite a bit. In my case, after a run, I ice down for a half hour so and then wear these socks at night. they are good quality and fit snug but still easy to put on and remove (with some effort but that is the case with compression clothing. I highly recommend these and probably will purchase another pair. BTW, Blitzu also provides a pretty thorough guide on leg pain mechanics and causes, and exercises to reduce symptoms.
