These socks seem to provide great support. I bought them to help with problems joint issues and swelling. I've been wearing them at night and they seem to reduce the pain without being overly tight. I used the sizing guide and, unlike what other people have posted, I thought they ran true to size (usually wear a 8.5 shoe in flip flops but for enclosed shoes I tend to need a 9-9.5).
The cross patterns within the weave of the material seems to provide good support of the arch, heel, and the rest of the foot. Many compression items I've purchased seem to be too tight in one area or too lose in another. These provide good compression but they also stretch enough to be effective without being uncomfortable.
I wish I had gloves for joint issues that were made as well as these socks! These were certainly a good quality, particularly at the price. My only criticism would be there are some loose loops of threading on the inside of the socks so I have to be careful not to catch my toes on them but that's a very minor issue. Overall I am very happy with the purchase and I would buy them again. I'm planning to use them on long flights, too.
Well made, supportive but run small. I got XL (thank goodness) and just right, I’m a 9.5 women’s shoe.
I wear mine after a long day on my feet at work. I have slept with them on also. They help and make my arches feel better. I have worn them during the day while I'm out and about and they are good.
I loved these supports. They helped with my foot pain. However. They do run a tad smaller than expected.
I really love this sleeve. It provides pressure for my currently ailing foot in all the right places and still allows me to wear sandals since it is summer.
