Women's Sockwell Compression Socks
Today's woman is always on the go, and your feet are responsible for getting you everywhere you need to be. Whether you work hard, play hard or both, you've got to take care of those feet so you can keep on keeping on. Sockwell Socks make it uber-easy to keep your feet feeling and looking great while you do what you need to do to be you. Read on to see why active women love these socks!
Compression and Style-What?!
You might think of compression socks as those ugly, old, rubber hosiery from medical supply stores made for mature wearers, but you'd be hard-pressed to find anything like that at Sockwell. These socks are colorful, stylish and scientifically backed to help your feet and legs feel fantastic and look great.
So what makes a sock a compression sock? A design with a careful blend of fibers that gently apply pressure to the foot and leg is the difference. This
pressure helps the oxygen-rich blood flow down to the foot, and the de-oxygenated blood move back to the heart so that the blood doesn't pool in your lower extremities. This can assist in preventing pain caused by deep vein thrombosis, blood clots and varicose veins, as well as general fatigue. Sockwell socks feature a graduated compression that's highest in the foot and decreases up the ankle and leg to help promote healthy blood flow, even when you stand or sit for extended periods of time.
Compression is measured in "millimeters of mercury," (mmHg) a scientific measurement indicating blood pressure. It indicates how high the pressure in the blood vessel would move mercury up a column. We offer socks in two levels of compression to meet your needs. Our moderate compression offers 15-20 mmHg, and our firm compression socks offer 20-30 mmHg.
How Do They Do It?
When you wear Sockwell socks, you get all the benefits of compression in a great looking sock. That's because we use a special blend of the best fibers in the USA. We use a blend of cashmerino wool, alpaca wool, and bamboo rayon to provide natural thermoregulation and moisture managementwhile maintaining a soft feel. The use of spandex woven into the fibers provides stretch and strength to aid in the compression factor. Our Accu-Fit Technology ensures that your socks will fit the contours of your feet and feel just as great at the end of the day as they did at the start. Other benefits of compression socks include:
- Promoting circulation by keeping the blood from pooling.
- Minimizing swelling by creating a gentle and graduated pressure.
- Reducing fatigue by keeping muscles stabilized.
You'd never know by looking at Sockwell socks that they're compression socks, though. Argyle, stripes, polka dots, block styles, and arrows are just some of the fashion-forward patterns and looks you find at Sockwell. We've got a style for every mood. Colors? We've got 'em! From bright azalea, poppy, and Concord grape, to more subtle brick, charcoal, and espresso, there's a color that will go with any outfit. Just look at how great the Women's Damaskgoes with the comfortable Alegria Loafers or Boots. Or you can peek through with polka dots with Sockwell'sOn the Spot socks.
Running with the Best of Them
We don't just run with the best sheep and alpacas for our fit and style, though. We cross the finish line with women runners all across America. According to Running USA, a leader in running research and statistics, over 9.7 million women finished a running event in 2015. And that's not including the hundreds of thousands of women who run, jog and walk just for pleasure or exercise every day. But you don't have to run the 35.5 miles a week that the average competitor runs to feel the benefits and the pain of running.
While you run, or anytime you work out on your feet like hiking or playing sports, compression socks provide athletic performance support and help the blood flow so you can get the most out of your workout while lowering your risk of injury. Runners often feel soreness in the heel, ankles and feet, shins, and knees after a run, but wearing compression socks can help speed recovery, so you don't have to hurt. Faster recovery times can also help you avoid common running injuries, such as:
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Shin Splints
