These exceptionally comfortable ankle socks combine 15 mmHg of graduated compression with anti-bacterial fabric, and Advanced Micro Massage 3D wave knit fabric. These socks create a gentle wave of pressure to activate rather than collapse the lymphatic system. Features include:
Advanced Micro Massage 3D wave knit fabric, which expands and contracts on the skin to support the body's natural function to move fluid
Unparalleled for effectiveness and ease of donning, the socks have a non-constricting top band and toe box.
The breathable, moisture-wicking fabric is embedded with silver ions to reduce bacteria and the chance of infection
Most effective when worn during physical activity
Best suited for bunionectomy, edema, swelling, lymphedema and post-surgical healing
82% Nylon; 8% Lycra; Latex Free
Made in Italy with the finest quality materials and craftsmanship
For best results, hand wash using a mild detergent and lay flat to dry. Do not wring. Garments can be machine washed in a lingerie bag with warm water using the delicate cycle and dried on a low temperature setting. Do not use bleach, chlorine, fabric softener or other laundry additives.
Leaves indentations on top of feet, April 5, 2017 By Tracie Robbins (Knoxville, TN)(Verified)
I was recently diagnosed with lymphadema in my lower legs and feet. I was told by my lpt to not wear anything on feet and legs that leave indentations or marks. These socks fit great however, after wearing them for about 3 hours, I had indentations of the pattern of socks on the top of both feet.
Wish they offered one sizer larger., October 15, 2015 By anianiau (Honolulu, HI)
These are among the few actual compression socks on the market and even better, they are sized using measurements of the buyer's foot. I wish they offered one size larger. I am at the top of their largest size range, and would prefer a little less compression and a little more comfort.
I also find the 'ankle' height not quite high enough. Jobst offers a compression sock which comes up about 1-1/2 inches higher, and thus more effective.
A final comment: I don't mind the logo, but please consider something other than a light yellowish color. Until you look closely, it just appears to be a stain and not very attractive.
