Why I loved it: The first thing I noticed (besides the awesome packaging) was how easy they were to put on. Even though I have larger calves, I didn’t have to struggle and force them on like I did with some of the other brands. They felt tight and snug on my feet, but not so tight it caused discomfort and left a mark. After 15 minutes or so, I forgot I was even wearing them. That’s how comfortable they were! So much better than the other socks I tested that made my legs constantly itchy.
After wearing Primes compression socks for a day (about 15 hours), my legs and feet felt just as fresh as they did in the morning. As an editor sits at a desk all day, my feet are normally sore and swollen by the time I get home.
Thanks to Primes, my feet felt so energized I went for an extra evening walk during sunset. One hidden benefit is these socks make me want to to go out and be active rather than sitting or lying down all the time. They make me feel younger and more fit!
Verdict: If you’re looking for a pair of compression socks that will help your legs and feet feel great, then I highly recommend you grab a pair of Primes. Although they’re more expensive than the brands you’ll find on Amazon or your local CVS, they’re much higher quality and will last longer (the elasticity doesn’t wear out after washing). This means you’ll save money in the long run.
An added bonus is they are infused with anti-microbial silver strands. So you don’t have to worry about catching nasty viruses or bacteria (including the nasty illness going around right now) when you take your shoes off.
Plus, they have a 30-day money back guarantee so if you don’t like them for any reason, you can return them and get every single dime back — no questions asked. There’s not many other brands that will offer this.
Right now, Primes is having a special 50% off spring sale so I recommend getting a pair and seeing for yourself. how amazing they are. I would also urge you get a few extra pairs between washes or as gifts for friends and family.
