These graduated compression socks are one of the best pairs you can get if you're a runner. Designed specifically for endurance, the Vitalsox Graduated Performance also boasts moisture control properties.
For people who wish they could experience dryer feet when getting active, they are better for preventing foot-related health issues and keeping shoes from getting ruined than actual compression. This is because they are made out of nylon, Lycra, spandex and a drystat mix. They will make a difference in terms of recovery and improve circulation, but not drastically so when it comes to lactic acid buildup or blood pooling. The limited compression does mean they are easier to get on and off than other models, however.
The graduated compression socks are for running, walking, standing, sitting, gym, yoga or even sleeping.
