Thermoskin Calf Compression Supports
No other calf compression sock will provide you the pain relief you need like the Thermoskin Walk-On Calf Socks. Their moderate, graduated compression fibers extend from the ankle all the way up the calf to promote blood flow and lasting comfort. They assist in the treatment and management of plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and other sports-related injuries or recoveries. Other plantar fasciitis calf socks can get sweaty or apply pressure in incorrect areas, but these socks feature silver microbial fibers in both the toes and heels to improve odour elimination. The moderate to firm compression band around the foot arch applies compression where the foot needs it most.
These Thermoskin calf compression socks are also ideal for sports performance, sports recovery, shin splints, standing or sitting all day, travel, varicose veins and swollen, tired or aching legs. These running support socks can help stimulate blood flow so you can minimise and prevent pain. Learn more about the Plantar FXT Calf Compression Socks or visit our plantar fasciitis pain guide.

Overview of plantar fasciitis:
The Plantar Fascia is the connective tissue that runs from the heel bone (calcaneus) to the ball of the foot. It supports the foot arch, enables the foot to push off, keeps bones and joints in position and absorbs the strain we place on our feet. Plantar Fasciitis occurs when the Plantar Fascia is placed under too much stress, causing inflammation or damage to the tissue and resulting in common symptoms such as heel pain, dull aches or stiffness in the foot.
Potential causes of plantar fasciitis:
Standing on hard surfaces
Tight calf or achilles tendon
Weight gain and ageing
