Compression socks (or compression stockings) are socks of various lengths that are designed to gently squeeze legs a bit more than typical socks. The key purpose of compression socks is to promote better blood circulation in the legs.

 

Athletes who wear compression socks have noted that their legs feel more energized, experience less swelling and leg pain associated with ligament, tendon injury, and muscle tears and are therefore able to concentrate more on their performance giving them a mental edge.

 

Compression socks are can also be beneficial for helping to prevent blood clots while traveling and in pregnant women.
