Swollen, achy legs can be the result of sitting at your desk for too long or being on a long flight. Something I know all too well. The slang-term cankles comes to mind when thinking about how my legs look after a long flight. You know, when there is almost no change in diameter of the lower leg from the knee to the foot. The good news is all of the swollen aches and pains can be helped with the right compression legwear.

The FUTURO™ Brand has compression legwear in a variety of styles, sizes, and colors for both men and women. I wasn’t quite sure how much I needed them until I was asked if I would review a few pairs and truly put them to the test. FUTURO™ Brand from 3M sent me their FUTURO™ Revitalizing and FUTURO™ Restoring dress socks for men. I specify men because Joe’s Daily’s sister site, BellesPerDiem, is reviewing the women’s FUTURO™ Brand socks too. FUTURO™ Graduated Compression Legwear for women as well.

Putting the compression legwear to the test, I decided to put them on immediately upon waking. The nice thing about the socks is that they look good with whatever outfit you decide to wear: business or casual, so it was nice to know the sweatpants I normally work from home in were a safe choice.

Immediately, I felt the soothing relief FUTURO™ Brand touts on their packaging. It felt as though the socks were massaging my tired, achy legs — felt most noticeably when getting up and moving around in them. Because of the graduated compression — max compression at the ankle — my legs felt as though they had improved circulation. Can a sock really work wonders? Yes!

The FUTURO™ Legwear was not only designed to help the symptoms I have of swelling and horribly achy legs and feet, but FUTURO™ Legwear can also help relieve any vein disorders one might have. They also work great if you’re recovering post-surgery. I’ve witnessed this first hand when my good friend had major leg surgery after a motorcycle accident. The doctor recommended FUTURO™ Legwear to help keep the swelling down after his surgery, and it worked wonders.

Because these socks aren’t just any ordinary socks, you have to take proper care of them. It’s best to hand wash them with mild soap in lukewarm water. Don’t wring them out. Blot them with a towel to remove excess water. They say you can tumble-dry them in a delicate cycle on low heat, but I prefer knowing they won’t get damaged so I stick to air drying them.

Overall, I would highly recommend FUTURO™ Graduated Compression Legwear, especially if you fly a lot (like me) or sit at a desk all day. You won’t regret it, and neither will your legs and feet.
