What's my size?
Whether you enjoy an active lifestyle or prefer a more laid-back existence, pain and inflammation from gout are the last things you need. While it’s important to seek proper medical care, Nurse Yard’s compression socks for gout can help alleviate discomfort almost immediately.
Our compression socks provide gentle-yet-firm graduated pressure to your feet and legs. This helps disperse the build-up of uric acid in your joints, improves circulation, and prevents fluids from pooling in the compressed areas—all of which help alleviate pain.

How Nurse Yard Compression Socks for Gout Are Different
Many compression socks offer compression—and absolutely nothing else. At Nurse Yard, we take things up a notch by offering compression socks that accommodate all of your needs and expectations.
That’s how we created our design—by anticipating our customers’ needs. We started with a wave-knit pattern to provide snug, graduated pressure from the ankle to the knees. Then we added a slip-free cuff and lightly cushioned ankles for convenience and support. We also added slightly roomier, breathable toes for maximum comfort.
Each element of our design works together to provide the ultimate relief from gout pain and swelling.
Risk Free 60 Day Guarantee
We proudly stand behind our product, which is why we offer a lengthy guarantee.
If for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, return it within 60 days of your purchase for a full refund.
20-30 mmHg of graduated pressure. The perfect balance of compression... Not too tight, yet not loose! The ideal amount of support.
Fabric & Care
Our socks are made of 80% Nylon + 20% Spandex. Recommended to air dry to prevent shrinkage and for a longer lasting sock. Wash cold. No fabric softener.
Frequently Asked Questions
What causes gout?
Gout is caused by abnormally high levels of uric acid in your bloodstream. The body usually breaks down uric acid crystals and flushes them out of the body as waste. However, if there’s too much uric acid, the crystals can begin to collect in your joints—particularly the largest joint of the big toe.
Some people develop gout due to a diet high in purines (alcohol, sugary drinks, certain foods such as salmon and pork), while others may have it because of a health condition or as a side effect of medication.
What are the symptoms of gout?
Common symptoms of gout include the following:
- Intense joint pain, usually in the big toe
- Redness and inflammation in affected joints
- Lasting joint discomfort and stiffness
Gout often occurs in cycles, with episodes of pain and swelling in the joints that subsides after a short time. However, joints may continue to feel stiff and have less range of motion than they had previously.
How Do Compression Socks Ease Pain from Gout?
Gout results from uric acid build-up in the body, which causes pain and swelling in the lower joints—particularly in the legs. Those with this condition may have difficulty breaking down these acids, partially due to poor circulation.
Our compression socks for gout can provide relief from these symptoms by:
- Encouraging better circulation in the lower limbs
- Reduce fluid retention in the affected areas
- Ease swelling and inflammation
What Is Nurse Yard’s Design of Our Compression Socks?
Nurse Yard’s design aims to address and fix the most common problems people have with their compression socks. We created features focused on improving circulation and alleviating pain and making our compression socks for gout as comfortable and easy to wear as possible.
These features include:
- Roomier fit in the foot for airflow
- Light arch support
- Cushioning around the ankles
- Wave-knit design for graduated compression
- No-slip knitted cuff, so socks stay up
How Do I Figure Out My Compression Sock Size?
Finding the correct size for your compression socks is easy—all you’ll need is our sizing guide, calf circumference, and shoe size.
To find your calf circumference, use a tailor’s measuring tape to measure around the top of your calf. The resulting number, plus your shoe size, will determine the best sock size for you.
For instance, if you wear a women’s size 6 shoe, and your calf measurement is 9 inches, our S/M will fit you best. If your measurements put you between sizes, the option that most closely matches your shoe size will fit you best.
What Colors & Sizes in Compression Socks Does Nurse Yard Carry?

Are Compression Socks Really Tight?
Nurse Yard’s compression socks for gout are tighter at the bottom and become gradually looser near the top. You can expect 30mmHg of firm pressure around the ankle, 25mmHg of moderate compression mid-calf, and 20mmHg of mild pressure around the socks’ cuffs.
This graduated pressure ensures your compression socks stay up and alleviate pain without disrupting your circulation.

Benefits of Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Gout
Hole in sock seam after 1 time wearing them. Not good.
I ordered 3 pair of socks and the first pair I tried got a hole in the seam after one night of wear. I messaged the company and didn’t hear back. Wouldn’t purchase from them again.
My daughter is a surgical technologist in a very busy hospital surgical department and is always complaining about being on her feet all day. When I saw the ad on TikTok I bought two pairs for her. She was very happy and asked me to buy her more. I placed an order for another 2 yesterday.
Hi Irene, it's wonderful to hear that Nurse Yard compression socks have made a positive impact on your daughter's comfort, especially considering the long hours she spends on her feet as a surgical technologist.
