Do you love traveling the globe? Or even just flying a few hours for a quick vacation? Then you need compression socks for travel! According to a recent British study, "all forms of transport involving a journey of 4+ hours led to an increased risk of blood clots forming in the veins of the legs." This includes most flights that individuals take on a day to day basis. Compression socks for travel are a simple way to prevent swelling in the legs, as well as blood clots and other health complications.
Whether you’re traveling by car, plane or train, we know that there are many health risks associated with sitting too long, the position of your legs while sitting on a plane, dehydration, and when flying, low pressure and low humidity. These conditions can leave your legs heavy, swollen and achy, and can increase your risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition where blood clots form in a deep vein, usually in the legs. Compression socks for travel can provide relief from these symptoms, and many people find wearing compression socks for travel to be a significant improvement in travel comfort. For all those reasons and more, you should never be caught traveling without your Extreme Fit compression socks on. These innovative compression products utilize advanced Gradient Pressure knitting technology to improve your circulation and alleviate aching and swelling and prevent and reduce spider veins, varicose veins, and DVT. In addition to rocking stylish compression socks, you will be more comfortable during your travels and feel rejuvenated after. Compression socks for travel are a carry-on essential.
I bought compression socks for the whole family for a 9 hr air flight. We all wore our socks except for my son in law who exited the plane with swollen ankles. The rest of us had no swelling. Needless to say, he wore his socks on the return flight. Comfortable, fun prints and they do the job! Great product! -- Susan C.
I wear these socks when I travel and they help so much! I used to get restless leg when flying, and compression socks help a lot. And now I can be fun and stylish too. (Plus - I can find them in my drawer when I am packing in a hurry!) -- Anne S.
My legs feel so much better when I wear support socks when I travel. I was relegated to boring pantyhose type socks....very unattractive. These are GREAT! Very comfortable and makes wearing them so much more fun! Plus, I LOVE the wide calf feature! -- Abigail K.
The first day that I wore them I saw the difference. I never expected that. I bought a pair for my husband who travels as part of his work. On the last flight we took, he wore them and I wore sandals. His feet did not swell and mine noticeably did. They are pretty remarkable. -- Parkie S.
