Benefits of Compression Socks

Before you fine folks started requesting compression socks, we had never tried them. Well, color us impressed. We found our OTC Compression Socks to provide all-day leg support and circulation keeping our feet and legs from swelling. But, don’t just take our word for it. Here are some leading expert reasons why compression socks are the right fit.

Compression Socks increase healthy pressure on your skin and tissue. 

If you’re taking a long flight or patiently waiting in your hunting blind, compression socks can help maintain circulation during periods of less movement. That means less discomfort and potential swelling in your legs and feet.

Graduated compression can aid in recovery from heavy physical activity.

Whether you are an avid runner, cyclist, snowmobiler or fisher, graduated compression socks have shown to help recovery from heavy activity. Graduated compression improves blood circulation, which in turn speeds the removal of lactic acid and increases oxygen to the blood.

Most Common Uses for Compression Socks

We’re certainly hooked on the benefits of our OTC Compression Socks for everyday wear while working, but in case you need more inspiration, here are a few of our favorite use cases for these amazing socks.

  • Long fishing excursions
  • Flying to and fro
  • Skiing or Snowmobiling (bonus - our OTCs are also incredibly warm)
  • Long distance running
  • Long sitting spells while hunting

    Surprisingly Soft and Seriously Warm

    Our Trekker Boot Socks are our heaviest, most insulating, and most wicking sock. We’re sure these are likely the warmest socks on the planet. Well, the warmest that aren’t electric but they are silly and pretty impractical! 

    (well, these were the most insulating, until we made our new American Field Kodiak socks... but the Trekkers are still waaaaay more insulating than anything out there)  

    Trekker Boot Socks = Workhorse Gear

    Designed to be your go-to extra heavyweight boot sock, our Trekkers are extremely thick, quite soft, and well built. Created with ultra-soft bison fiber, these socks are thicker and more cushioning than our Pro-gear socks. We use only properly processed bison fiber that is 100% free from stuff that will make the socks itchy or abrasive.

    Our Trekkers feature a terry loop padded footbed and are over-plaited in the toe, heel, and slightly up the leg to make sure your feet will be comfortable all day long.

    Despite the extra cushioning and tough construction, these performance designed socks are intended to be worn with footwear. They are not intended to be worn as house slippers. You certainly can, but wearing them on concrete and abrasive surfaces will impact wear.

    Trekker Boot Socks are awesome, but don’t just take our word for it!

    We gave a pair of our Trekker boot socks to survival expert Leon Pantenburg, and here is his review

    Seriously warm - Surprisingly soft

    We created a sock from Bison down and silk that will keep your feet warm and dry all winter long. When summer comes, don't worry, they will also provide dry cool comfort in hot environments, with superior moisture regain properties, and exceptional air-flow almost double the wicking of fine wool. (keeps your feet dry and sweat free)

    Exceptionally durable for outdoor activities, long distance running, hold up strong for eighteen holes, or just knocking around town in your sneakers. These socks are incredibly easy to care for and due to their antimicrobial properties, feel free to wear them a few times before washing. But when they do need to be cleaned, simply machine wash on the warm or cool setting, then toss them in the dryer. 

     We very carefully remove all the guard hair, and scour the fiber so it is soft, cuddly and very very warm.  No prickly itch from these socks.

    The shorter brother to the Pro-Gear Technical Boot Sock. A terry loop cushioned footbed, vented and structured instep for smooth fit...but crew height. A nylon over-plaited toe and heel for added strength where you need and want it most.  8" rise (on average)

    Features: 

    • Terry loop cushioned footbed
    • Vented side
    • Flat toe seam
    • Reinforced toe and heel, nylon over- plaited
    • 8" rise from heel  
      $40.00

      Over the calf, and over the top.

      This is a four season sock, great cushioning and support for standing in a river tossing flies at salmon, long hikes, hard hunts, and basically just keeping your feet dry and comfortable in most conditions.  They will stay fresh and funk free for days on end... pack less, travel more.  Less bulk and better fit, not quite as insulating as our Trekker or Pro-gear socks, but built to take whatever you can throw at them and still keep you cozy. 

      The Buffalo Wool Co. Kenai Boot Socks feature:

      • URfit System for arch support and memory-knit construction
      • Smooth and flat comfort toe seam
      • Footbed is a luxurious bison down, ultra-fine merino, bamboo blend
      • Leg Shaft is an extremely comfortable military-spec polypropylene

      Knit for us at Fox River Mills in Osage Iowa, those sock-creating geniuses marry military spec polypropylene on the sock shaft with our close-to-bulletproof bison down/ultra fine superwash Merino wool, and bamboo yarn blend in the foot. (the same yarn we use in our B.O.S.S. socks.) 

      Anyone that has ever worn a pair of military polypro socks knows how supportive they are, but you have never felt the footbed comfort and warmth of our bison/merino/bamboo yarn blend at the same time.

      The result is the exact sock that Fox River knits for the US Military but with your feet surrounded with the warm, moisture-wicking, comfortable, durable proportions of our BOSS Sock. This Mil-Top sock is about 3" taller than our Trekker boot sock ... right at mid-calf ... and with the stay-in-place power of mil-spec polypropylene.

      As to scent capturing,  We had one of our spec testers, who claims to have worn them a ridiculous 12 days of elk hunting.  Now that would just be "Socks Abuse"!  But these are the top of the hunting/moving/walking sock food chain.  They are my "go-to" hard-wearing outdoor socks anymore.

          All About The Bison Down

          The American Fields start with ultra-soft bison fiber. We monitor the fiber every step of the way from scouring and dehairing the fiber, to working directly with the spinning mill to determine the perfect amount of twist and loft in the yarn.

          Our newest lightweight sock, designed for dry cool comfort in hot environments, with superior moisture regain properties, almost double the wicking of fine wool and bamboo is a naturally antibacterial, antifungal and odor resistant fiber (keeps your feet dry and sweat-free) 

          Exceptionally durable for outdoor activities or in your loafers on the way to work.

          Sometimes a product idea just completely makes sense. We spent a lot of time experimenting and futzing with the base yarn for our B.O.S.S. Socks, trying to get something extremely lightweight, breathable, wicking, cushioning and durable. Getting the proper ratios of bison, wool, bamboo, to insulate, breathe and wick.. and the right amount of twist, not so tight it doesn't have "spring" not so lofty it doesn't wear properly. It took us more than a few attempts, and we missed the summer selling season last year, but our all-weather B.O.S.S. socks have been nothing short of a stellar smash. SO, we thought we would do the next logical thing and make a crew height version of this sock. (Mostly because short socks look kinda silly in dress loafers) 

          It is really the exact same ultra-tough design as our Casual Crew sock, just with a lighter, more breathable, softer fiber blend, they are extremely long-wearing and supportive but not restrictive. 

          A "true rib" jersey knit crew sock of the old-school variety, this sock has the great foot fit and stay of our technical socks. It is insulating, soft and durable,  and wicks moisture away like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

          These socks are incredibly easy to care for and due to their antimicrobial properties, feel free to wear them a few times before washing. But when they do need to be cleaned, simply machine wash warm, then toss them in the dryer.

          You've asked for them, we made them, our new warmer climate short ankle socks, the "Best Overall Short Sock". 

          This sock has a great foot fit design with integraB.O.S.S. sockted arch support, terry loop cushioning through the footbed, flat toe seam, breathing toe box, ultra re-inforced on the heel and ball of the foot.  It is insulating, soft and durable,  wicking moisture away like nothing you’ve ever experienced. They are a little heavier and more cushioning than you would expect but truly maintain your body temp without trapping excess heat. 

          Designed for a dry cool comfort in hot environments, with superior moisture regain properties, and exceptional air-flow almost double the wicking of fine wool. (keeps your feet dry and sweat free)

          Exceptionally durable for outdoor activities, long distance running, eighteen holes, or just knocking around town in your sneakers. These socks are incredibly easy to care for and due to their antimicrobial properties, feel free to wear them a few times before washing. But when they do need to be cleaned, simply machine wash on the warm or cool setting, then toss them in the dryer.

          As many of you keep telling us, our Sleep Socks are one of our favorite products, ever!  

          The sleep sock was designed to leave unrestricted circulation around the cuff - a top rising softly just above the ankle with no extra spandex ... just the natural stretch of the terry loop construction.  It adds the needed insulation to keep your blood supply in the feet comfy .. in bed, walking, or even with shoes or slippers. This version of the sleep sock is a yak/nylon yarn blend.

          Slipping into a cozy pair of ultra-soft, wicking, comfortable, natural fiber sleep socks after a long day can be one of the most luxurious feelings. Not only do they help regulate body temperature by wicking away moisture, but socks made with natural fibers can also help prevent odors and fungal infections, making them a great choice for those with sensitive skin. Additionally, the softness and breathability of these socks can help promote a more restful night's sleep, as they won't irritate or constrict the feet.

          They are warm, comfortable, and durable and we have it on good authority that they actually saved several marriages.
