Questions About compression socks

Compression socks recommendation

What brand compression socks should I buy? I'm looking to get some compression socks to aid in recovery after long runs. Also, I really like the overall feeling of compression clothing so I'll probably wear them around the house regardless of when my last run was. There are a lot of brands out there of varying price levels, so I'd like some recommendations. I've been looking at Zoot, 2XU, CEP, Zensah, Oxysox, various medical compression socks and stockings. The less seams the better. Any recommendations?

Compression socks

Is there any downside to wearing compression socks all the time? Should we all be wearing them? I spend a lot of time on my feet at work and several people recommended that I try compression socks. I've done a little research and everything says there's no downside: they supposedly prevent sore feet/ankles, blood pressure issues, varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, etc. I didn't find anything that indicated that they are only for certain medical conditions or that prolonged use can cause problems, etc. So as a healthy guy with sore feet, is there any reason I shouldn't just wear them all the time? Why doesn't everyone wear them?

What brand of compression socks or calf sleeves would you guys recommend for running?

I'm a distance runner and have had a lot of issues with calf tightness. It's nothing serious but during a lot of my runs, my calves feel uncomfortable and it's been very annoying to deal with. I've been looking for a good brand of compression socks or calf sleeves to wear. I bought a pair of Under Armour compression socks, but they make my calves feel significantly tighter and more uncomfortable. Any suggestions?

My question is about opinions on Compression Socks?

I have/had blood clots a few years back in my one leg. The calf of my leg swells alot when i'm on it even for 30 minutes. I tried TED Hose but it still puffed up alot and I still felt discomfort. If anyone has used the Compression Socks I'd love to know what you think of them. I just bought a pair yesterday that is rated 20-30 compression rating. Serious answers only. FYI I have spoken to my doctor about using the compression socks. I orginally heard about them from my pharmacist. It's been about 5 yrs. since i had been told i had clots in my leg. Also I haven't been to a specialist with this but only to my regular physician.

Compression socks on a diabetic who just had heart surgery?

My grandfather (63) just had a double bypass surgery and is now at home. He is a full blown Type II diabetic and is overweight. The hospital had him wearing anti-embolism compression socks throughout his entire hospital stay following the heart surgery. Whe we got him home and took the socks off, his legs were purple and bruised and there were indentations in his legs around his ankles and shins from where the socks were. Is this normal?? I'm worried because it looked like the circulation was cut off from his legs and that circulation is so important with a diabetic and their feet. The compression socks were size X-L but by the looks of the indentations you would have thought he was wearing size x-small. We have to wait till Tuesday to call the doc due to the holiday weekend. Does anyone have experience with this? Please help. Thanks!
