FYKE Sports Compression Socks

Sports compression socks, also known as performance or elastic socks, are an important accessory for a sports kit. FYKE socks provide a nice finishing touch to the athlete’s look, but most importantly they have multiple benefits for your feet’s health.


Although it is not common knowledge, the compression effect of sports socks improves blood circulation and prevents the accumulation of lactic acid in muscle structures, which in turn, helps to relieve fatigue and swollen legs.


Those who use compression stocks are usually the ones who practice sports activities that cause a lot of impact on the legs muscles and joints, such as athletics, football, cycling, crossfit and others.


However, what is most desired by elite athletes is to improve their performance and resistance in the practice of physical exercise. Afterwards, the socks can be kept on for a few minutes to help the muscles recover and gradually relax.


Compression effects


By placing pressure on the legs, sports compression socks, help the blood flow back to the heart more efficiently, increasing the blood flow, and the levels of oxygen distributed throughout the body as well.


Your doctor may prescribe compression socks for the treatment of venous diseases or for the treatment of varicose veins. However, there are different types of socks with different levels of pressure and height; some may cover the entire foot, others just the entire leg.


Who is it recommended for?


For a conscious transaction, we advise you to gather as much information as possible regarding the product before proceeding with a purchase. This applies above all, when you are dealing with products that may impact your health.


To get the most out of sports compression socks, it is important to understand how our body works. When blood flows towards the heart, the valves act as “floodgates”, preventing blood from falling back to the lower limbs, in opposition to gravity.


Therefore, sports compression socks can be indicated in cases of heart valves alterations or obstructed veins. Other cases in which its use is recommended are:


  • Pregnancy
  • Varicose veins
  • Health complaints such as tired, aching, heavy and swollen legs
  • Elderly people, or people with compromised circulation
  • People with thrombosis antecedents
  • Venous insufficiency
  • People who spend many hours sitting


As a matter of fact, the use of compression socks can be recommended in cases such as long trips in order to avoid the formation of blood clots in the lower limbs, after several hours of sitting.


They are also recommended for people who spend a lot of time on their feet throughout the day.
