Reduce Swelling + Decrease Risk of Blood Clots 

Sitting for too long on a plane, train, or in a car can cause blood and fluid to pool in the lower legs and feet leading to swelling. We call this potato feet. 🥔👟

HOW COMRAD HELPS

Improve Blood Flow + Reduce Swelling

Compression socks work their magic by gently squeezing the legs to promote blood flow from your legs and feet back towards your heart. Once the blood starts to move, swelling subsides (goodbye potato feet) while  also lowering the risk of developing blood clots that can lead to DVT (deep vein thrombosis). Our Companion compression socks are a game changer for long travel days - which means you get to your destination energized and ready to take on the day. 

WHY YOU NEED IT

Alleviate Swelling and Pain Resulting From Circulation Issues 

Thanks to gravity, the most challenging place for your body to pump and circulate blood is from your heart down to your feet and back. When you’re standing or sitting for long periods of time, this becomes even more challenging for the body. As a result,  blood tends to pool in the feet which causes uncomfortable swelling. 

HOW COMRAD HELPS

Boost Circulation of Freshly Oxygenated Blood + Reduce Swelling

By forcing the blood back up the leg, graduated compression socks can reduce swelling caused by long periods of sitting or standing, pregnancy, or existing medical conditions associated with poor circulation. Less swelling? Yes, please.

 WHY YOU NEED IT

Alleviate Swelling + Decrease Chance of Spider Veins

Besides expecting a bundle of joy, most moms-to-be can also expect edema—swelling in the legs, ankles, and feet caused by the normal increase of additional blood and fluid during pregnancy. In addition, some pregnant women may experience vascular issues like spider and varicose veins.

HOW COMRAD HELPS

Improve Blood Flow + Reduce Swelling

Medical professionals recommend compression garments  as an effective and easy way to reduce pregnancy related edema. Compression socks work their magic by gently squeezing the legs to promote blood flow from your legs and feet back towards your heart resulting in better overall circulation. Goodbye swollen feet!

Maximize Performance + Speed Up Recovery

Both elite and everyday athletes experience the same issues—feeling sluggish, enduring leg cramps, and battling soreness after strenuous workouts. A dedication to exercising can put a lot of strain and stress on the body, but by simply switching your socks, you can help elevate your performance, alleviate soreness , and speed up recovery time. 

HOW COMRAD HELPS

Improve Circulation  = More Energy + Reduce Lactic Acid Build Up

If you've ever felt muscle pain or soreness after a bootcamp, run, or strenuous workout you’re not alone. Graduated compression socks improve the circulation of freshly oxygenated blood which reduces the buildup of lactic acid (the culprit behind post-workout soreness). Who knew that soreness could be optional? 😉

HOW COMRAD HELPS 

Compression socks massage muscles to stimulate blood flow + boost energy levels.

Meet your everyday wellness companions. Go on about your day while compression socks do their job to increase blood circulation. More blood pumping means more oxygen getting to your extremities, which means less end-of-day fatigue and more energized legs throughout your day.  

WHY YOU NEED IT

Reduce Muscle Soreness + Clear Lactic Acid 

Post-workout, many athletes experience a temporary reduction in athletic performance, caused by muscle fatigue, delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), shin splints, edema, and various minor injuries. Needing time for recovery is normal. Still, prolonged recovery can disrupt training schedules for serious athletes. Even for amateurs, faster recovery has potential benefits—both on and off the field. Studies have shown that compression socks help to oxygenate cells and to clear lactate build-up and other waste materials from the bloodstream. The end result? A pair of compression socks may be the key to feeling better faster.

HOW COMRAD HELPS 

Improve Blood Flow + Supercharge Training

In addition to preventing varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis, compression therapy also jumpstarts your functional recovery. Studies of runners, cyclists, netball players, and other athletes suggest that wearing compression gear after a workout improves subsequent athletic performance. Compression garments work by boosting your blood circulation, which enables your lower body to feel more energized. In particular, graduated compression socks assist your lower legs, including your shin and calf muscles, by forcing deoxygenated blood and waste fluids out of your legs. 

With moisture-wicking fabrics, durability, and precise compression levels measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHG), Comrad delivers more than regular running socks. Recovery compression socks lead to health benefits you can feel—better circulation, less muscle soreness, and more stamina.
