Info: Over The Calf Length; In Different Types
Looking for a compression sock which helps the blood flow up and through your legs without leaving your feet feeling too constricted and overheated? These ones by Point6 (named after our optimal body temperature, 98.6 F, which they help maintain) should do the trick. All these types have just Ultra Light cushioning, to ensure a snug fit which won't induce chafing if you do a lot of walking.
These Ultra Light OTC Compression Socks all feature not only the engineered fit of the regular Point6 Superior Merino Wool line of socks -- which feature superior moisture regulation and odor control for the feet -- along with graduated compression technology (which increases the further up the leg it goes) built into the long, extended cuff (which goes well over the calf), to stabilize the muscles and improve blood flow. This can boost energy, reduce soreness and fatigue, and shorten recovery time from injuries such as sprains.
You can choose here between two sets of solid black types of graduated compression socks (except for the company's logos in light blue at the toe and near the top) -- one set in the original material, and another in their new 37.5 Quick Dry Tech material described below -- or several other predominantly black ones in the original material, accented with either a 'surge' pattern either in faint grey or in a Robin's Egg colour, or with pink portions on the toe and heel and stripes up top and fairly faint grey dots on other areas.
With its new 37.5 Quick Dry Tech line, Point6 has enhanced its original material with active particles which not only make the socks far more breathable, but also faster to dry, and they can also keep your feet drier longer by decreasing sweat droplets from building up in the first place by drawing moisture away and dissipating it while it's still in vapor form. For those turning to compression socks to aid in recovering from an injury, this can be a real boon, enabling you to increase athletic output and blood flow and reduce the swelling you'd otherwise be encountering, compared to normal socks.
