At one point or another we have all faced the dreaded “cankle” after long hours traveling without moving much. This unfortunate feeling and looking lower leg swelling is due to the restriction of blood circulation in the legs and feet. VIM & VIGR, a line of high-quality compression socks for men and women, works to combat cankles and the detriments of poor blood circulation that is common during travel.
As a result of the inactivity during travel, position of legs while seated, low pressure, dehydration, and low humidity, many people feel that their legs are heavy, swollen, achy, and in risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a condition where blood clots form in the veins.
By utilizing VIM & VIGR’s advanced Gradient Pressure™ knitting technology, these innovative compression socks improve circulation and alleviate aching, prevent and reduce spider and varicose veins, and leg swelling. These fashionable socks engineered to energize your legs every step of the way are available in a variety of designs and fabric choices. They are a must-have travel item which allows the blood in your feet to gently get re-circulated back up your legs towards your heart to then be re-oxygenated.
My friend Johann did the Brooklyn 1/2 and wore the socks while running/training! He gave them 5 stars!
Compression socks are proven to provide relief and increase comfort throughout the day – espcecially during long travel periods. VIM & VIGR has recently been featured in The New York Times, Redbook, Triathlete, and Pregnancy & Newborn.
Since he is the person I know most passionate about socks with great design and function, I trust his review 🙂
