So, yeah. I've got foot problems. Achilles tendinitis, Plantars fasciitis and now possibly Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Paying my dues for being a sports player in the 80-90s where "tape it tighter and get back out there" was the coach's care program.
I searched around to find something that would give the compression I needed during flare ups and swelling BUT also looked somewhat cute instead of just a white/black/nude colored brace. My searching led me here...and it is a miracle worker!!! I keep it in my purse when not using it for just-in-case flare ups. Started with one today, put it one and within an hour the stabbing, pulling pain was GONE and I was hobble free!!! HIGHLY recommend!!!
Although I occasionally have plantar fasciitis I purchased these socks to provide compression on the top of my foot as a result of a Lisfranc injury. I put them on immediately when received, and was pleasantly surprised that the swelling had subsided on the problem foot when I removed the sock that night. I could actually see the veins in my foot once more! I have peripheral neuropathy in both feet and even felt relief for that. I am pleased that the compression band is closer to the heel rather than around the center of the foot. The socks are easy to get on and off, but I do experience a bit of binding at the top, the reason I do not wear to bed. I have actually folded the very top, which provided some relief, but there was still a bit of binding. Even so, the socks provide the right amount of compression on the top of my foot, and are comfortable to wear under my knee-high compression socks (and over them) and also under regular socks. I am so pleased with the socks that I ordered a second pair. I wear a woman's shoe size 9-10 and ordered the L/XL. My feet are flat, and I pronate when I walk. Leg just above the ankle is about 9 inches around.
great product feet feel better already
Very happy with product. So happy I bought two pairs! Does wonders for my plantar fasciitis.
