Etxe Ondo Compression Recovery Socks - White
Research has shown that the use of compression recovery socks help reduce leg fatigue and muscle soreness, thereby also reducing recovery time. This helps your legs feel fresh for the next time you exercise. How does it work? Through the use of graduated or progressive compression, blood circulation back to the heart is increased. Research has shown that this can be up a 138% increase with the correct compression (18mmHg at the ankles working up the leg to 8mmHg according to Sigel et al (1975)). This helps remove exercise induced by products, such as lactic acid and carbon dioxide, from the muscle tissue. This thereby reduces recovery time.
The key is to have the right amount of compression for these socks to be effective. Too little compression, and circulation is not increased, and too much will actually inhibit circulation. It is key is to have a graduated compression sock. Etxe Ondo’s socks are specifically designed to give a varying amount of compression, with the maximum amount of compression lower down the leg that graduates to slightly less compression higher up the sock. These socks are designed to give compression ratings between 8-18 mmHg, making these socks safe to be worn over prolonged periods, (this is much different from the therapeutic compression socks doctors prescribe to patients. These socks have a higher compression factor to help address circulation issues).
These socks are made from high quality materials that will continue to provide adequate compression over time.

Measure the circumference of the biggest part of your lower leg in cm. Divide this number by 2 to get your sizing. For example if the biggest part of the your calf muscle measures 36cm, then your sock size will be M/L (18cm):
S/M (16cm / 6.2 inches)
M/L ( 18cm / 7 inches)
L/XL (20cm / 7.8 inches)
XL/XXL (22cm / 8.6 inches)
