I wear Sockwell compression socks due to lymphedema, complicated by neuropathy after cancer treatments, and a genetic clotting disorder (Factor V Lieden). My legs feel energized and great all day, even after standing on hard surfaces for hours, which used to mean my legs would ache for 3 days afterwards and swell uncontrollably with lymph fluid, but I NEVER have that issue anymore when wearing my Sockwell compression socks. They are so cute that I can wear them and still be stylish, but I sometimes forego my compression gear for style like if I am wearing shorts or at the beach or something. Those are the days my legs HURT, but as soon as I get home and put them on, I feel IMMEDIATE relief as the compression counteracts the lymph leakage. Since I love my ladiesâ€™ Sockwell socks so much, I bought these for my truck driver husband who also suffers from diabetic leg ulcers. The dr said that compression socks are the best treatment for venous/arterial insufficiency, and his ulcers would NOT heal due to his extended time behind the wheel. I bought him 6 pairs of Sockwells, and he loves them now, too! He wears them everyday, and he reports back that his leg ulcers are finally healing! Since he is a trucker, he doesnâ€™t always get to shower or change his clothes every day, but he says the socks never stink when worn twice before a wash. Amazing! I also have not had any DVT in my legs since wearing my Sockwells every day (I was bad about compliance as a young woman who still wanted to be fashionable, but these are so stylish and not at all â€˜old and/or sick peopleâ€™ socks). My husband definitely wasnâ€™t going to wear the other styles, but these were so stylish that I finally convinced him to go for it. He always reports back that they are not too hot like he thought they would be. I also made sure, since he is doing his laundry out of a truck stop, that these, unlike a lot of other compression gear, can go in the dryer. Guys, BUY THESE SOCKS!!!
