My dermatologist had told me to purchase compression socks to help with blood circulation to assist in healing skin issues. So being a nurse, I wanted to evaluate some different ones to see which is best for me. Since there are SO many kinds and different brands, I decided to try 7 different brands and evaluate which felt the best. Why 7: because it is the number of completion in the bible!

So I tried blitzu, vital sox, ABCO direct, compression Z, A swift, and endurance shield. Some of them felt too tight - like they would wrinkle in the wrong place and feel like they cut into my skin in uncomfortable ways. And understand that they are all difficult to put on as they need to fit you tight to work well. But some were impossible to get on. Others I didn't like because they tended to be too tall and would roll. So after my thorough evaluation, I settled on these socks: blitzu as my favorite due to the feel of the material, the way the patterns provided pressure in just the right places and how they also made my feet feel supported since I have flat feet.

My second fav. was Abco Direct. The others I returned because they didn't work for me. I feel like compression socks are one of those things that may feel differently on various persons so you need to try a few and see what works for you. BTW for the short (not knee high) compression socks, I like the sock well ones. Compression socks are worth the effort of finding the to help with. Blood circulation that addresses a number of problems from arthritis, sore feet and legs, leg inflammation , andskin irritations to preventing leg cramps! Go for it!! 😀

Being new to wearing compression socks, I had no idea where to begin. So, my research began. I wanted something non-clinical looking but still functional, reasonably stylish and long lasting. So far, I've ordered 6 different brands. All of them good but the Compression Socks Blitzu Power+ Men and Women came out on top.

I am 5 feet tall and all the other socks I have tried were too long, cutting into the back of my knees (very uncomfortable after awhile). These are a little shorter and the top of the sock band sits at the top of my calf, just far enough below the knee. I was so happy to finally find a pair that fit me!!! Thank you Blitzu!!

These are extremely well made. Quality, durable materials. Each sock has a R or L indicator so you get them on the correct foot. The graduated compression is perfect, from foot to top of calf. They never seemed too tight or binding and never caused any discomfort. The foot of the sock was a little long (I have small feet) but not so long that they needed to be folded over. I also have wide feet and found the toe box to be roomy and comfortable. The top of the band fit as well as can be expected - without exception, every single pair of compression socks I've tried seems to dig in at the very top of the sock band. So, I'm guessing that's just something I'm going to have to live with.

I sit at a desk all day and as a result, have terrible swelling in my lower legs, ankles and feet. After removing these socks at home, I can actually see my ankle bones again!!! I have no swelling and no discomfort. My feet, ankles and legs do not feel achy, tired, heavy or full. These, by far, have been the best compression socks I've found!

Love,love, love these! I'm a hairdresser and stand on my feet for 12+ hours at a time. These socks have helped with fatigue and achy legs and feet. I recently had my veins treated for spider veins and varicose. and have been ordered by my doctor to wear compression sock or hose daily and nightly for 3 weeks. I've used several pairs and these have given me the most comfortable support of all of them. I had to return other brands. These are comfortable to wear for 15 hours or more. I swap these out at night and wear one that is called over night compression. So u do not sleep in these, but I could. I bought the small/medium size, I wear a ladies 7.5 to 8 size shoe. I'm 5'4. Calf size is 12" I first bought the black, then I came back for the white and the pink. I'm a fan of all of them! I attached a photo of my leg after wearing them for over 12 hours. The depression it made was slight, but the compression was very supportive! I highly recommend these for anyone that stands for long periods of time or that has circulation issues or vascular issues. Good luck and enjoy!

This is my first pair of compression socks. So far, they're holding up well. Be sure to use the provided instructions to put them on, and hand wash in cold water only. I use them to run; enjoy the extra support they provide. For reference, I am 6'0", 150 pounds, wear a size 10 women's shoe and purchased the S/M size which seems to fit well.

I am totally satisfied with my purchase of these compression socks. Wearing shorts pretty much year round, not only do they help my circulation but they also act as a fashion accessory. I am reordering these as well as their ankle compressions.

I have had my socks for a full week of work, I LOVE them! It is like someone hugging my legs all day. They are comfortable and look awesome, I got the purple ones! Will be wearing these from now on, with everything. I gave all my other socks to my daughter and will be buying more of these a couple pairs at a time. Well worth the cost, the edema in my legs is gone. No more divits, no swelling, no sock marks where it looks like I had rubber bands on. I am on my feet and walking 7-10 miles a day outside, these wick away the moisture and keep my legs from sweating.

Love the color and whimsy of these socks. They're a little thicker than I expected, but not a major issue. Once they're on, they are very comfortable ... and seem to work well as compression socks. The challenge is with their thickness ... trying to gather them up as directed to pull them on is challenging. My hands are not muscular enough to gather the sock on my foot to multiple layer thickness, then pull it up. It's the good news and bad news ... The Good News: Lots of elasticity for compression, The Bad News: All the gathered bulk makes it nearly impossible to open wide enough for foot. Solution that works best for me: Push foot in as far as possible, gather and pull the toe backward several times to get it to fit as closely as possible at toe & heel. Then start gathering it up the leg, an inch at a time. At some point beyond the ankle, I can pull the length up my calf. Again, once the socks are on, they're comfortable, compress well, and even wash/dry well!

I'm usually on my feet all day collecting and analyzing fuel samples at refineries and terminals for work. So one can imagine the pain I feel at the end of each day (which I've gotten used to). What I haven't gotten used to is the NO pain I feel after getting these socks. Boy.., do I wish I had these 10 years ago. Thank you so much Blitzu. These socks are great!! I'm ordering a whole bunch more!!

I am a female, 5'10", size 12 foot and have lymphedema. The compression socks I used to wear are no longer available so I've been ordering different ones to see what will work best for me. The $80+ medical compression socks tend to "strangle" my leg just above the ankle where they switch compression levels. I ordered the larges size of Blitzu socks. I was REALLY impressed with the quality of these socks. Thick material, great compression and obviously well-made. These are definitely the best ones I have tried to date. BUT...unfortunately they don't come all the way to my knee (as shown in the online pics). This is the ONLY reason they are not a 5 star rating for me. If they were 2" longer, they would be perfect. I do have long legs (34" inseam on pants) so if you are a 32 or less inseam these would probably be great for you. Even the top band didn't constrict around my leg like other brands. Please Blitzu people can you make a "long" size? PLEASE????

I had massive leg surgery August 11th 2017 with extensive bone and knee work. This is my fourth big surgery but by far the longest and most extensive. The doctor told me I could order compression socks since I have to wear them for 4 to 6 weeks so I would be able to wash the white ones you wake up in recovery with already on. After looking and reading reviews on so many different brands I decided to go with this Blitzu brand. I ordered a black and pink pair. OH MY GOODNESS THEY ARE AMAZING. They fit perfect and are so comfortable. After reading the how to put on guide that came with my pink pair it makes it so easy. I will be ordering more of these for when I'm healed and back in the gym!!!! Just for reference I wear from an 8 to a 9 size shoe! On the box that came with the black ones it says woman's 5-11 order small/medium.
