Just like a therapeutic hug for your feet and calves! Our friends at Afton have been producing compression socks for over 30 years, so they really know what they’re doing. Most athletes and travelers know about the benefits of compression for faster recovery times, decreased post-activity aches, and improved circulation and energy levels. These socks have just the right amount of compression for comfort and benefit with a graduated compression: 22 mgHg at the ankle and 18 mgHg at the calf. Smartly they have incorporated metallic silver fibers in the foot area to kill the bacteria that can cause odor, and the cotton/nylon/Spandex blend makes for a soft feel. Plus you can show a bit of personality with the array of options like stripes, argyle, dots, and herringbone designs that they offer. Afton socks are certified to be free of harmful dyes or chemicals, and for every pair of socks purchased, they will donate a pair of socks to charity. So many reasons to check out Afton Compression Socks!
