Review Sizing Guide for Proper Fit

TierOne socks are specifically designed to provide maximum comfort while offering a medical-grade compression level of 20-30 mmHg. They are meticulously crafted to ensure a soft and gentle touch, making them easier to wear compared to other compression socks.

One of their key features is their ability to reduce frictional forces within the shoe, thanks to their unmatched softness. This characteristic minimizes discomfort and irritation that can occur during prolonged wear.

TierOne socks are of superior quality and come in attractive colors, offering both functionality and style. They are suitable for various medical conditions, including maintenance therapy following ulcers, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), post-thrombotic syndrome, and lymphedema. Additionally, they are suitable for use after varicose vein treatment.

You Have Never Worn Compression Socks

If you have never worn medical grade compression socks before, this will help you select the best fit?

Approximately 50% to 60% of medical grade sock wearers do not continue to wear their socks due to tightness and discomfort, or an inability to put the socks on and take them off.  These recommendation are to help you be successful and an avid wearer of compression socks, the science is in and compression socks work wonders for a range of conditions related to poor circulation.

First, expect them to feel tighter than over-the-counter travel socks, travel socks are typically a low to mild compression.  Medical grade 20-30mmGh (mmGh is the compression unit of measure) are medium compression. 

They can feel tight but you don’t want them to feel uncomfortably tight after wearing them for awhile. 

Second, Ask yourself, are my feet and calves larger than normal, this may be the case if you suffer from edema or other conditions that cause water retention or swelling in the ankles and legs.  If the answer is ‘Yes’, then you may consider moving up one size on the size chart.  Check with your doctor if you have any concerns. You should still receive therapy level compression but at more comfortable level.
