my ankles and feet swell up so much that it's painful and lasts for days
on 22 January 2017
Normally when I fly, even a few hours, my ankles and feet swell up so much that it's painful and lasts for days. I was going to be on a 13 hour flight and wanted to be sure I was fresh and ready to go when I landed, not hobbling around for days.
I purchased these to match my calf size, not my foot size, as I have really large calves. Obviously then the feet were too big but but this was expected.
Having never used flight socks before, I struggled to get these on but once thy were on they stayed put and I forgot about them after a while. They came up past my knee but I rolled them down to sit just as my knee cap.
For the first time in my life I flew and had absolutely zero swelling. Yes they are an expensive pair of socks bit of you suffer from swelling legs and feet when you fly this is a God send. I can't recommend them enough, just match your leg size and not your foot size. Also bear in mind you want them tight, if there loose thy won't be compressing anything.
