Compression socks can be worn on long flights to help avoid those cramped and swollen feet when you arrive at your destination. Sitting for long periods of time on a plane can make the blood pool in the lower extremities, and the body has to work harder to get the blood flowing back up to the heart.
Compression socks like those from CEP Compression can help change all that. Athletes often wear compression socks and other items of clothing for the same reason. This brand promises that their socks can improve blood flow, reduces muscle soreness, and also quicken any recovery time.
The socks are made of 85 percent nylon and 15 percent Spandex, with cushioning on the soles, and a mesh weave that helps create ventilation.
They can be purchased for about $60. Invest in a good pair and you’ll be able to make them last for years.
