Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Compression Socks Help with Ice Hockey?
Ice hockey requires players to balance on skates while bearing down with their legs to move quickly through the rink. These movements strengthen and tone leg muscles but also leave players prone to chafed ankle joints and leg cramps—especially through the calf.
Compression socks for ice hockey players can alleviate and reduce the occurrence of leg cramps by supporting the leg with graduated pressure. This pressure improves blood flow and reduces muscle strain so you can play for longer and have a shorter recovery time afterward.
What Is Nurse Yard’s Design for Compression Socks?
Many compression socks only offer compression. At Nurse Yard, our compression socks feature a specially designed comfort system to protect and support your legs from ankle to knee.
Since you can’t stop a hockey game to adjust your socks, our design starts with a knitted no-slip cuff that will keep your compression socks in place until you take them off. Next, we added a cushioned ankle and light arch support to protect and comfort the foot. Finally, we used a wave-knit pattern through the calf to deliver graduated pressure.
How Do I Know What Size of Compression Sock to Get?
Compression socks that are too loose won’t stay in place, while socks that are too tight may disrupt your circulation or abrade the skin. With a flexible measuring tape and Nurse Yard’s sizing chart, you can easily determine what size compression socks you need for leg cramp relief.
Begin by measuring around the widest part of your calf with the flexible measuring tape—it should lay snug against your skin without making a dent. Then, use your calf measurement and shoe size to choose your compression sock size from our chart.
For example, if your calf circumference is 11 inches and you wear a size 9 women’s shoe, our L/XL women’s compression sock will fit you best.
However, if you’re between sizes, you should choose your size based on your preferred fit in the foot. Our compression socks are roomy in the toes, so size down if you like a snug fit.
Does Nurse Yard Have Different Colors & Sizes Of Compression Socks?
Our compression socks for ice hockey are available in a wide range of colors and sizes to stylishly support as many athletes as possible.
Sizes run from S/M to XXXL in men’s and women’s sizes, and our CORE series styles include the following designs:
- Black: black with gray design

You can order each style in every size.
How Tight Are Compression Socks for Leg Cramps?
Our compression socks for ice hockey prevent and alleviate leg cramps by delivering graduated pressure from ankle to knee. Compression is highest around the cushioned ankle at 30mmHg to support the joint. 25mmHg of medium pressure hugs the calf muscle to improve circulation, and 20mmHg of light pressure holds the no-slip cuff in place just below the knee.
Our graduated pressure system supports your joints, muscles, and connective tissue and encourages blood flow, which reduces soreness and recovery time after ice hockey practice and during games.

Benefits of Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks for Ice Hockey
FORMER thigh hi compression stocking girl because all knee highs dug into my knees and feet. Well …. Let me tell you something. These compression socks are absolutely amazing !! I bought 2 pair to try them out and after two days, I purchased four more pairs !! One of each color for each day of work so that the wear and care is equal. And I think what I love the most is that not only my legs but my feet …. Yes my FEET are no longer throbbing at the end of the day !!!! Enough said !! They are the bomb !!
Wasn't sure at first about buying them. Took me a few times looking and then I said what the heck and got 2 pair. I have to say they do what they claim to do no doubt on that. My legs feel very energetic, do not hurt what so ever. Very supportive in the arch and the circulation throughout the day is consistent. They are light weight and i have forgotten I had them on even after 12+ hrs. I have another brand and they do not do what these do. My ankles were always swollen and my legs always hurt and it always felt like it was cutting into my legs at the top. These do not do that at all. I am impressed all the way around and will be ordering more in the coming weeks. I work in the ER so it's constant moving. All I can say is try em out. Either you'll like them or you won't.
I really like these socks. I had an issue with one pair, though. However, when I contacted customer service, I received immediate help and the issue was resolved on the spot! I will be a life-long customer I'm sure.
I was a skeptic and figured these socks would be like every compression sock I've bought. I was wrong! Usually after a 12 hour shift in my compression socks, my feet feel tired and feel like they want to burst out of my shoes. There is almost always swelling when I finally take off my shoes. I decided to give the nurse yard compression socks a try because I had nothing to lose at that point. I noticed an instant difference. End of shift my feet felt like I hadn't even walked on them. My feet and legs weren't tired and there was no swelling. Best decision I've made. I plan to buy more and would definitely recommend.
Not a nurse, I'm a cashier. Best purchase I've ever made, literally has saved my life ❤️
I purchased these for my husband he experiences swollen feet and poor circulation. He is also often on his feet. He comes home daily with achy feet. First day he wore the Nurse Yard socks he said , "my feet feel so much better". We have since purchased socks for our family members and we ourselves own about 10 pair. We love them!!!!
Omg the sock a wonderful. I work in dialysis 15-16 hours shifts. No more tired feet achy legs. Go home shower and rest with out having to rub my legs and feet. Definitely worth a try.
My legs and feet aren't sore anymore after a shift. I only bought 2 pair but I'm definitely planning another order soon! I have to admit I wasn't totally sold but after my first day I told everyone I work with! Now a few weeks later they are still awesome!
