Azengear Compression Socks
Available in a choice of two colour schemes (black and pink or black and blue) these graduated compression socks are suitable for many users. They’re ideal to wear during flights or other long journeys and can help prevent cramps and other unpleasant symptoms. They can also help prevent clots after surgery, prevent leg fatigue and swelling during pregnancy, promote healthy circulation during exercise and much more.
I tried out the pink and black version in size L/XL (they’re also available in size S/M). The reason I wanted to try them is that I have problems with the veins in my calves, and frequently get small blood clots that needs treatment from my GP. I work as a waitress so I’m on my feet for hours at a time, and at the end of a shift I’m often suffering with a lot of pain in my legs. I’ve tried similar socks in the past but they were extremely uncomfortable, looked awful and didn’t have much of an affect on my legs so I gave up wearing them. I was interested to see how these socks would compare.
These socks are very comfortable to wear, the compression was just right for me - not too loose and not too tight. I was pleased that the top of the socks didn’t roll down and become uncomfortable. They are lovely and long, they come to just below my knee. Unlike other compression socks I’ve tried these actually look nice, they don’t look at all like the horrible ones you get from medical professionals for problems with your veins and circulation, which is a big plus.
I’ve worn the socks on several long shifts at work and they definitely help. My legs feel lighter and they don’t swell up as much. I do still get some pain in my legs and my veins are still raised, but the compression socks have improved it.
As the weather is getting colder these long socks are perfect to wear, but I think I’d find them too hot to wear in warmer weather. They wash well, they haven’t shrunk or stretched at all. I think they should last me a long time as they are really good quality. Five stars.
