If you are looking for a “medical grade” pair of socks, these are FDA registered. They are thicker and more likely to keep your feet warm and toasty.

These work for men and women. They use anti-static fabric, which is a nice treat. You can wear these all day, every day, since the fabric wicks away sweat and keeps bacteria from taking hold. You’ll get a solid amount of compression and serious comfort.
Compression socks for plantar fasciitis relieve discomfort, boost circulation, and reduce swelling. However, they frequently run too large or too small.
Compression socks should be tight, but not too tight. If they are painful or cut off circulation, they're too tight. A sung, pain-free fit is ideal for delivering the benefits of compression. To find the perfect size, measure your legs. If the manufacturer has a sizing guide, follow it when taking measurements. If it doesn’t, use these three measurements recommended by Leg Smart:
Take these measurements without shoes. If your feet or ankles are swollen, wait until the swelling goes down—ice your feet and ankles to reduce swelling more quickly. Following these steps will help you find plantar fasciitis socks with the perfect fit and the ideal amount of compression!
For the dynamic duo of plantar fasciitis pain relief, combine your socks with specially designed plantar fasciitis insoles.
Take care of your socks, and your socks will take care of you! Here are some tips to keep your compression socks in good shape.
It might surprise you, but you should wash your compression socks every day. Wearing your sock causes them to stretch out. When you wash them and let them dry, they revert back to their original shape.
When you wash your compression socks, avoid using bleach. You want to be gentle with the socks. Handwashing is best unless the manufacturer specifically labels their product as machine washable. When you handwash, don’t ring dry. Gently squeeze excess water from the sock.
Plan to replace your compression socks every couple of months. They aren’t meant to be a one-time purchase. Look for socks that work really well without costing an arm and a leg, because no matter how great the socks are, you will need to replace them. We designed our Vive plantar fasciitis socks to be both effective and cost-effective. That way, you can afford to buy new socks when you need them.
Compression socks are usually thin, and they tear easily. Be extra careful when putting them on and taking them off. Don’t rush.
If you have a hangnail or long nails, ask someone to help you put them on. If there’s no one around to help, put on mittens or smooth gloves. Once your socks are torn, their effectiveness is greatly reduced and they won’t last long.
Also, never roll up your socks before putting them on. When you bunch up the socks and pull them on, you can actually stretch them out.
For extra support and pain relief, try a plantar fasciitis brace.
We’ve selected several pairs of compression socks that are awesome to relieve the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. Take your time and do your research to find the best plantar fasciitis socks for you. But don’t wait too long to find pain relief. Compression socks are a simple solution that will keep your feet free of pain now and for years to come.
