Cushion socks are great for many reasons. First of all, they are thicker and will keep the feet warmer than a thinner pair. The padding will also provide extra protection against blisters, while also providing extra support to targeted areas. Depending on the activity to be performed while wearing the socks, one may also want to consider where that padding is placed.
While on the surface, many pairs of socks may look the same, there are actually tons of different choices on the market today. Even the basic everyday sock comes in a variety of different thicknesses, different lengths, different colors and patterns, and different fabrics. Cushion socks come in knee socks, crew length, low cut, or ankle socks. Some socks are cotton dominate, while others may be made of a dry weave material blend to help reduce moisture.

May people don’t realize the many health benefits which can be gained from wearing medical socks, also known as compression socks. Compression socks are designed to improve the blood flow throughout the lower limbs. People with circulatory problems are at higher risk to develop blood clots, especially when sitting still for long periods of time. Blood clots can lead to deep vein thrombosis, which is a potentially fatal condition which occurs when a blood clot forms and partially or fully blocks blood vessels. Deep vein thrombosis has become commonly linked to air travel, due to the cramped conditions and limited mobility when flying, leading the condition to be nicknamed “economy class syndrome.”
Patients suffering from deep vein thrombosis can experience swelling and pain in the legs. Compression socks come in a graduated design and fit firmly over the calf, stopping at the knee. This specially designed sock works to improve the blood flow throughout the legs during the flight by applying pressure on the calves. These cushion socks apply pressure on the veins which keeps the blood pumping through the legs and reduces the chances of any clots from forming.
At www.renfrosocks.com customers will find an impressive array of cushion socks, dress socks, fashion socks or medical socks to choose from.
