Bombas has a solution for sore feet — medical-grade compression socks

Tis’ the season of the socks, but not ordinary socks — compression socks. Bombas has set out to make the best ones on the market, and shoppers are saying they’ve done it.

Recovery has become all the rave, with many people turning to foam rollers, massage guns, saunas, and cold plunges to ease sore muscles, reduce aches and pain, and improve circulation. Unsurprisingly, some of these larger items come with a hefty price tag. But, there are still plenty of effective alternatives that don’t require as much space or money.

Compression socks are one of them. These socks work by applying gentle pressure to your legs and ankles and promoting blood flow from your legs to your heart, according to Healthline. While there are many compression socks available over the counter, stockings of 20 mmHg or higher generally require a prescription.

Bombas is among the brands to respond to the demand for these wearable recovery tools. The philanthropic clothing company, which quickly rose to fame after appearing on Shark Tank in 2014, has innovated socks equipped with graduated compression fabric for a snugger hug at the ankle than ordinary socks.

These simple slip-ons feature soothing arch support to cradle the bottom of your foot, ultra-soft yarns to allow your skin to breathe, and stay-up technology that keeps your socks exactly where you want them. “Tight, but not too tight,” as Bombas says.

To make compression more accessible, Bombas has curated a catalog of socks in a variety of styles and sizes for men and women, with ankle-height, calf-height, and knee-high options available. Bombas Classic Performance socks offer the highest support — ideal for anyone who travels, enjoys high-intensity workouts, or works long hours on their feet. They also help ease discomfort during pregnancy, which is arguably a 10-month marathon in itself.

Shoppers are beside themselves with how well these socks work. Hundreds have left raving reviews, pointing out that these socks “hold up wear after wear” and saying they’re “a must when on your feet all day.” Many have added that the Bombas Compression socks are more comfortable than previous compression socks they tried — which are notorious for being difficult to get on and off due to the tighter fabric.

“These are the best compression socks you can buy without a prescription,” one happy customer shared. “They’re comfortable to wear all day, well-made and Bombas made this new line thicker and stronger than last year’s.”

By purchasing a pair of Bombas, you’re not just doing good for yourself, but also for others. For every pair of socks purchased, Bombas donates a pair of socks to individuals facing homelessness.
