What's my size?
Whether you’re pushing toward your next fitness goal or are a nurse constantly on the go to care for your patients, shin splints are the last thing you need. Pain and inflammation only slow you down and make it harder to live your best life. The solution: Nurse Yard's compression socks for shin splints.
Shin splints usually happen because the muscles and tendons around the shinbone are overworked from the pressure and impact of standing, walking, or exercising for long periods. Compression socks provide support during these activities to help improve your circulation, alleviate pain, and reduce inflammation.
Check out Nurse Yard's stylish and affordable selections today to learn how compression socks help with shin splints.
How Are Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks Different?
While other compression socks only offer compression, Nurse Yard’s socks are made with all of your needs in mind. We understand professionals on the go need more than one avenue of support—you need a total comfort system that lasts all day and beyond.
That’s how we created Nurse Yard’s design hack—a comprehensive sock design tailored to your needs. We began with a unique wave-knit pattern to provide graduated pressure from ankle to knee, ending in a no-slip cuff so they stay put. Next, we added arch support and cushion around the ankles to protect your instep and joints. Last, we added a little more room in the toes to prevent chafing and allow your feet to breathe.
With Nurse Yard, you get more than a pair of socks—you get total support relief from shin splints.

Compression Sock FAQ
What causes shin splints?
Shin splints are microtears in the bone and muscle along the shinbone that cause intermittent, chronic pain in your legs.
You can shin splints from the following:
- Intense exercise or playing too hard during sports
- Repetitive activity (e.g., walking on concrete floors every day)
- A sudden increase in the intensity or duration of activity
- Improper footwear for flat feet or high arches
With the right care and rest, shin splints are manageable and will heal over time.
Do compression socks help with shin splints?
Compression socks are recommended to prevent shin splints, heal existing shin splints, and prevent them from returning. If you exercise frequently, play a sport, or have to be on your feet for work, wearing compression socks can stop you from getting shin splints in the first place.
If you already have shin splints, compression socks can help them heal by improving blood flow and fluid drainage in the area. This process alleviates pain, speeds recovery, relieves inflammation, and reduces muscle fatigue.
Do compression socks improve performance?
Yes—compression socks can improve physical performance because they help heal shin splints and prevent them from returning. Compression socks for shin splints—like those at Nurse Yard—have a cushioned ankle and graduated compression to improve circulation. This increases blood flow to the injured areas so they heal faster. Compression also reduces inflammation and pain.
Additionally, compression socks reduce muscle fatigue and soreness while supporting your connective tissues, so you can be active for longer with less risk of developing shin splints.
How does Nurse Yard’s design hack for compression socks differ?
Nurse Yard created our patented design hack with your convenience and comfort in mind. We understand what it’s like to be on your feet all day, so our shin splints compression socks have features focused on protecting your feet, legs, and joints.
These features include:
- Roomy, breathable toes to prevent chafing
- Comforting arch support
- Cushioned ankles
- Wave-knit design for graduated compression
- No-slip knitted cuff to keep your socks in place
How do I find my compression sock size?
To determine which Nurse Yard compression socks are best for you and your shin splints, you’ll need our sizing guide, a flexible measuring tape, and your usual shoe size.
Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your calf, making sure it’s snug but doesn’t dig into your skin. Pair that number with your shoe size to see where you fall on the sizing chart.
For instance, if you wear a women’s size 8 shoe and your calf measures 13 inches in circumference, our women’s L/XL sock will fit you best. If you’re between sizes, please note that our socks have more room in the foot, so you’ll want to choose the size that fits your foot better.
What colors & sizes are available in Nurse Yard’s compression socks?
We offer our compression socks in men’s and women’s sizes from S/M to XXXL in a wide variety of colors and styles.

- Black: gray and silver design

All styles are available in every size.
How tight are Nurse Yard’s compression socks?
Our compression socks for shin splints offer graduated pressure, starting with 30mmHg of firm compression at the ankle, 25mmHg around the calf, and 20mmHg of moderate compression just below the knee.
They’re tight enough to improve circulation and stay in place but not so tight that they’re uncomfortable. In fact, they’re comfortable enough to wear all day!

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!
