Say goodbye to old fashioned, nude-coloured compression stockings and say hello to stylish Sockwell compression socks. Offering beautiful colours and patterns with performance fit and therapeutic features, feel better in style with Sockwell compression socks.
Sockwell is synonymous with compression socks, and for good reason. Sockwell shook up the otherwise drab compression sock industry over a decade ago by combining the incredible benefits of compression with the unique properties of merino wool, and topping it all off with fresh, modern styling. Their mission is to help you feel better in style, which is made clear the moment you slip on a pair of luxurious and beautiful Sockwell compression socks. Learn more about Sockwell socks.
The benefits of wearing compression socks are many, but do they make sense for you? The answer is, likely, yes! Read on to find out more about the benefits of graduated compression, what makes Sockwell compression socks unique, and even how to put on compression socks (spoiler alert: it’s easier than you may think).
What are Compression Socks?
Graduated compression socks help energize your feet and legs during and after long days on your feet or back-to-back hours of sitting down. You know the feeling, you’ve been sitting on a long haul flight for hours and your feet and legs feel fatigued and swollen. Or maybe you’re on your feet all day moving from appointment to appointment, and before the day is done your lower limbs are feeling tired and achy.
What if we told you achy, tired, and swollen feet could be a thing of the past?
Benefits of Graduated Compression Socks
Four zones of graduated compression
Aids in muscle recovery and soreness
Supports and revitalizes
Wearing compression socks throughout the day can help to prevent fatigue and wearing socks following long days can help aid in recovery. If you’re new to compression socks, we recommend taking a short detour to learn how compression socks work.
Many people across nearly every lifestyle can benefit from wearing compression socks. However, compression socks for flying and compression socks for nurses are particularly important. Suffering from swollen feet and ankles can cause extreme fatigue that can impact short term energy and cause major problems in the long run.
“Prolonged periods of standing can cause swelling, varicose veins, fatigue and discomfort. All of this can lead to discomfort and decreased levels of mental alertness. To prevent this, especially later development of varicose veins, start early with compression socks.”
As the exclusive carrier of Sockwell socks in Australia, we selected Sockwell for their expertise in quality, performance, and style. Every pair of Sockwell compression socks is made in the USA from merino wool and spun with bamboo rayon for the softest, most luxurious hand feel.
We love Sockwell socks for many reasons, including their custom merino wool blends, stylish look and comfortable fit, and varying levels of compression.
Custom Merino Wool Blends
We love Sockwell’s merino wool blend socks for many reasons, including:
Soft and luxurious
Helps prevent blisters
“Unlike cotton, wool is naturally thermoregulating. Like a well-insulated house, it helps cool your feet in the summer and provide warmth and insulation in the winter. Plus, it’s able to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture, leaving the microclimate around your feet drier as the wool absorbs moisture from the feet and efficiently evaporates it away. After all, less moisture means less bacteria, and less bacteria means fresher, happier feet—so you can perform your best year-round.” - Thomas Lee, Sockwell Partner
Stylish Look, All Day Fit
Once upon a time, purchasing therapeutic socks meant sacrificing personal style. But when Sockwell entered the game in 2009 they changed everything. With Sockwell compression socks, you can count on all the benefits of compression paired with the unique features of merino wool, but you’re also guaranteed a beautiful, stylish sock. Our assortment of Sockwell socks includes men’s and women’s socks in a rainbow of colors and patterns, from vibrant chevron patterns to subtle damask and modern stripes.
Two Levels of Compression
Compression socks help to minimize swelling, reduce fatigue, and energize your feet, but did you know there’s more than one level of compression? Sockwell graduated compression socks are offered in two levels, moderate (15-20 mmHg) and firm (20-30mmHg).
Moderate compression socks feel like a hug on your feet and legs, giving you a little pep in your step. Like caffeine, but for your feet. Firm compression socks offer additional pressure that can be particularly beneficial for those requiring extra support, for example as a result of varicose veins or plantar fasciitis.
Choosing the right level of compression for your wellness practice is a personal choice. When in doubt, try both. If you are suffering from foot related ailments or diabetes, always consult your doctor before adding compression socks to your maintenance or recovery regimen.
We love Sockwell compression socks for their all day fit, beautiful colours, and incredible health benefits, but if you don’t know how to put on compression socks the right way it can be frustrating to get started. Sockwell socks are spun with spandex throughout the sock, which means the sock will stay up all day, but that stretchiness can make them hard to pull on.
Our friends at Sockwell put together a short, four step video to help you learn how to put on compression socks.
