He has to wear them because of an accident and surgery, then Knee replacement.
They are a little pricey, but the best ones he can find. He wears them every day and they help.
This is my first pair of compression socks. So far, they're holding up well. Be sure to use the provided instructions to put them on, and hand wash in cold water only. I use them to run; enjoy the extra support they provide. For reference, I am 6'0", 150 pounds, wear a size 10 women's shoe and purchased the S/M size which seems to fit well.
I very pleased with the fit and the comfort provided by these socks. They provide a great support for my foot and ankle post surgery. It is a necessity as the surgery has left my ankle extremely swollen. Wearing these have helped with reduced swelling and lower the pain. Definitely well worth the price.
I am on my feet and wear compression socks every day. These socks were very nice and fit great. I actually really liked these socks. They are thick or feel like a heavy sock, but actually feel light on and my feet did not get hot. The compression support was really nice and my legs felt great at the end of the day. The band at the knee was really nice and did not roll or slip down. There was plenty of room in the toes. I also have large calves and these socks fit nicely and not too snug. I loved the feel, fit and colors. I will order these again.
I bought a pair of these socks for my husband after he tore the cartilage in his left knee (lateral meniscus), which led to great pain and swelling. He only used one sock, on his left leg. It made it easier for him to walk, and was excellent at controlling the swelling in his foot, ankle and lower leg (although he did then have swelling in his thigh). We are very pleased with this purchase!
