Out of her entire list of packing essentials, something that she rarely ever travels without are compression socks from Sockwell.
As many of us know, serious traveling means being on your feet often — and being on your feet often means soreness. If you’ve had to cut a scenic route hike short because of foot pain, compression socks may be the way to go for you.
“I was honestly skeptical about the legitimacy of compression socks… that is, until I tried them for myself. The key? Making sure they’re fairly tight—almost like a pair of Spanx for your legs. Slide them on at the beginning of a long-haul flight, and you’ll never worry about swollen feet or cankles again.”
Sockwell’s graduated therapeutic compression promotes healthy circulation that soothes tired feet and legs, all while keeping odor and moisture under control. (Just beware when you take them off.)
Recover more quickly from long days and reduce fatigue so that you can keep up the pace all day long. Also, they’re just really warm and comfortable.
