Compression works wonders for athletes, young and old. SB SOX is angled towards a more general audience. These socks can work for those with diabetes, edemas, swelling from pregnancy, and even varicose veins. Graduated compression helps to sooth and prevent muscle injury by promoting faster healing.

SB SOX come in an array of colors so everyone can match their personal preference. Not only do these support the leg, but they’re designed to also cushion and support the curves of the foot as well. Sizing on compression wear can be a little tricky, which is true for these SB SOX, but there is little to complain about otherwise. SB SOX can help you feel stronger and protected with every step.

Comfort

These SB SOX are one of the most comfortable compression options on the market. That is mostly because of the way they design the area of the midfoot and heel. The foot is supported by the sock even before you get to the graduated compression on the leg. These SB SOX Compression Socks has reinforced cushioning on the heel.

In addition to cushioning the heel, it also helps to support the arch and gives you more support in the toebox as well. Both of these components help to make these SB Sox Compression Socks more comfortable for the wearer. This creates another level of cozy for the wearer when they have on a pair of the SB SOX Compression Socks.

In addition to this cushioning and support, leg pain is diminished from wearing the sock as well. Shin splints and swollen, painful legs will be a thing of the past. Not only does this improve how your legs feel, but your quality of life.

This material wasn’t necessarily super soft, which some reviewers disliked. They thought that the SB SOX Compression Socks were well made, though a bit stiff. This might not be a great brand for you if you’re sensitive to the texture of fabrics against your skin.

Compression

It can be frustrating shopping for compression garments because many of them don’t advertise an exact level of compression. No worries about that with the SB SOX Compression Socks. If you have a specific need for compression you can easily parse if this is going to be the correct amount of pressure for whatever condition you are treating.

Compression is useful for several ailments. Even if you are just trying to avoid injury, the increased circulation to your muscles will help to prevent aches and pains while helping to heal existing discomforts. The SB SOX Compression Socks have 20-30mmHg of compression. This is a medium amount of compression, which is what helps it work so fantastically for those suffering from swelling or edema.

The type of compression is unique in the SB SOX Compression Socks as well. Though you may be familiar with graduated compression, not all compression socks utilize it. Calf sleeves and arm sleeves frequently do, but some socks tend to stay tight the whole way down.

Graduated compression works by being tightest at the ankle. The further it goes up the leg of the SB SOX Compression Socks, the less compression it has. This helps people who need an extra boost when it comes to circulation. If you’re older and have never worn compression socks but have recently be recommended them, this is a good middle-of-the-road option.

Durability

Reviewers loved the longevity of the SB SOX Compression Socks. Even though there may have been “stress” areas visible where the material was slightly strained, there wasn’t tearing or ripping from it. Those who bought the SB SOX Compression Socks felt the quality was incredibly high in the authentic pairs of the product.

If you don’t follow the washing instructions, you can cause wear and tear to show at a much faster rate. As long as you wash cold and let them air dry, they will last much longer than if you disregard their care instructions. When washed incorrectly, there were some complaints of the material seeming less than durable.

This was just due to human error, and the overwhelming response to the quality of the SB SOX Compression Socks is truly positive. For the price these are offered at, you can’t get a much better deal. As long as you’re careful to follow the washing protocol, these can have a long life on your feet and calves.

Fit

Athletes, for the most part, won’t have an issue fitting in the SB SOX Compression Socks. These had a lot of positive feedback based on their sizing, but some concerns need to be addressed. One is that often the foot area was too long when the size was bumped up to fit the calf.

That means people who have edema or severe swelling could have a lot of trouble getting the proper fit in the SB SOX Compression Socks. Especially if they have smaller feet in comparison to the rest of their legs due to the swelling. Usually, leggings, tights, or sleeves can help this swelling, but not if they don't fit over the problem area. Even if you have thicker calves, you may run into trouble.

The foot is a bit more generously sized than the calf section itself. This causes fit issues for only some people. Many liked how the SB SOX Compression Socks in comparison to other options on the market. These come in a larger array of sizes which you think would help the problems related to fit, but as it turns out options with a smaller range were better for certain reviewers.

Material

For a compression sock to be great, it needs to tick a few very important boxes. One of them is breathability. Though they should be keeping muscles warm for repair and the reduction of lactic acid without making you overheat in the process. Getting sweaty in your SB SOX Compression Socks won’t be a problem since they are relatively light and breathable.

You’ll be able to wear these when being athletic or in leisure time without feeling stifled or overly hot. In addition to being breathable, these won’t feel overly thick or stiff and restrictive. Compression wear can also feel almost like a bandage, and that isn’t what you want when you’re looking for something you can wear on such a large area while being physically active.

SB SOX Compression Socks are formfitting without being too tight or causing bunching behind the legs or at the ankles. Try out these compression socks if you’re looking for a versatile material that isn’t lacking in support.

Odor Resistance

Compression garments can quickly become incredibly stinky. Even if you don’t have hard-to-manage foot odor problems, they can take on an unpleasant scent just from one or two wears. That is usually due to perspiration while wearing them. The SB SOX Compression Socks try to be different for those who buy them.

Breathable compression socks, as well as odor-resistant, aren’t necessarily uncommon, but they don’t always live up to these features when they claim them. By having natural bacterial resistant fabric, these already have an advantage. Cutting down on bacteria drastically cuts down on odor.

Odor occurs in the fabric due to bacteria, and it is worsened by perspiration. SB SOX Compression Socks keep the bacteria down so you can feel and smell fresh when you wear them. You’ll feel relief not having to be embarrassed about stinky socks.

Range of Motion

There are compression socks that are better for athletes and those that are better for more medical uses. Usually, a big differentiation between the two is the range of motion you have while wearing them. The SB SOX Compression Socks are prepared for any athlete’s movements.

Some people thought these were more angled towards athletes due to their flexibility, but anyone can use these regardless of their needs. You can fully extend and bend the leg without issue. Since the SB SOX Compression Socks doesn’t come up as high as some other compression socks, you won’t feel like your knee movement is constricted.

This reduces bunching behind the knee, but also uncomfortable rolling that can interfere with your activities. Readjusting compression socks or sleeves is annoying, so you want yours to move with you without having to adjust them just right.

Style

Style isn’t the most important thing when it comes to compression garments, but the reviews appreciated the appearance of the SB SOX Compression Socks. They come in a whole variety of colors so you can either represent your team or just match your outfit for the day. It feels good to have some control over how your socks look.

Compression socks tend to have pretty obnoxious branding but most reviewers didn’t complain about the look of the SB SOX Compression Socks at all. They liked how they felt, fit, and flattered their legs, even when combatting swelling. They don’t come up quite as high as other brands, but if anything it approves their appearance.

Value

Compression garments can quickly become unreasonably priced. SB SOX Compression Socks are affordable so everyone can afford them. If you’ve had to previously rely on compression socks given to you by a healthcare provider because you weren’t sure about buying a pair for yourself, these will be in most price ranges.

The SB SOX Compression Socks are about 30 percent less expensive than other brands. They come two to a pair and you can choose your favorite color! Taking care of yourself on a budget has never been easier than using the SB SOX Compression Socks. You can use the money you save on the socks to get yourself a nice foot soak to finish off your day!

Reviewers who were comparing other brands to the SB SOX Compression Socks thought that the quality for the price blew them out of the water. Though there are brands that may be softer on the skin or a better fit, you can’t beat the value of the SB SOX Compression Socks.

Versatility

Since some reviewers said these are more of an athletic sock, it may seem like those with edema, varicose veins, or unrelated swelling can’t get the same kind of benefits. That isn’t true at all, it just might not be compressed enough to tackle some more serious issues. Since it is graduated compression, it invigorates the healing process through circulation and the reduction of lactic acid.

Whether you’re a gamer, a grandma, or both, the SB SOX Compression Socks can handle your compression and support needs during a tennis match or a stroll through the park. If you’re trying to get more into walking to help your circulation as well, this can decrease cramping or shin splints.

Couple the supportive foot section of the SB SOX Compression Socks with a supportive athletic shoe and you have a duo that nothing can stand in the way of. SB SOX Compression Socks have something for everyone looking for relief in their calves, ankles, or feet. Much like any other compression garment, these are a bit tough to get on, which could alienate some people with mobility issues. Remember this before buying in case you want to look at something with more stretch.

Bottom Line

Compression garments can be more frumpy than fun. The SB SOX Compression Socks make sure to add a hearty dose of whimsy into their incredibly supportive construction. The sock itself pads the heel and supports the toes. Graduated compression on the leg of the SB SOX Compression Socks take the circulation it encourages to the next level.

Athletes recovering from or trying to prevent injuries are not going to want to miss out on the SB SOX Compression Socks. This breathable material may not be the most supple, but it doesn’t skimp on providing you more stability and relief from common calf problems. Though their foot was slightly large for some people and the calf slightly small, problems with fit were few and far between. SB SOX Compression Socks are the perfect way to get more bang for your buck when shopping for your leg compression needs.
