I started a new job where the bulk of my shift is spent on my feet. Prior to getting and wearing these socks, my feet and legs were very sore, even when I was relaxing after my shift.
I thought about getting the longer, calf covering compression socks but knew I wouldn't be happy with those due to the heat (I may try them during the winter though).
These seemed perfect because they only came to my ankle so I wasn't worried about getting overheated in them. I ordered my first pair to try them out so I knew if I needed to go with the longer ones or if these would be sufficient.
So far I have been pleasantly surprised with the benefits I have experienced from wearing these socks. I can definitely tell a difference on the days I wear them compared to the day sI do not.
I love that during the hot months, I can wear these and in the winter I will have the option of comparing these to the the longer ones, if I decide to try the longer ones at all.
