Athletic Recovery Socks!
Compression Stockings can help improve your recovery process. The elastic material of the compression stocking, with stronger compression at the ankle and less going up the leg can gently squeeze the vein walls together, thereby easing blood flow back towards the heart, and improving overall circulation.
Athletic Recovery Socks help:
+ Flush out the lactic acids built up in the leg during exercise
+ relieve tired and aching legs
+ reduce exercise-induced muscle soreness
