(New Anti-Skid Version COMING SOON!!)
What is a compression sock?
A sock or hosiery that features graduated compression (pressure) that starts at the ankle, where it’s most firm, and to the knee, where it’s least firm. If the appropriate amount of pressure is applied to the right areas of the ankle and leg the blood circulation dramatically increases from the foot to the heart.
The Sock Specifications
Class 1 compression sock

Fitting instruction (The Sock is easy to fit)
Your shoe size will normally correspond to the required size of The Sock. However, if your calf size is above average you may find it necessary to wear a larger size stocking.
- Turn The Sock inside out and down to toe.
- Ease sock over toes, then pull back to heel.
- Smooth over heal, and roll up over calf.
- Adjust back down and repeat if twisted (do not stretch).
- Do not roll down or fold sock to ankles. This dramatically inhibits the circu-flow design to effectively push blood up to the heart.
The Sock is made out of durable material and designed to last a long time with proper care. For best results, simply hand wash in warm water and mild detergent. Do not wring.
You may also machine wash, but do not iron. Do not dry clean.
Avoid puncturing or tearing The Sock with finger nails when putting it on and taking it off. Do not stretch.
Tips to maximize The Sock
Here are some tips to help you get the most out of The Sock:
- The longer you wear The Sock the better the blood will circulate. However, it does not need to be worn 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to be effective. Most people find The Sock effective when worn a few hours a day.
- The Sock works great to increase circulation when worn immediately after exercising or while you’re asleep.
