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 compression socks for 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
How do compression socks help with shin splints?
Shin splints are caused by the muscles and connective tissue around the shinbone being overworked, resulting in discomfort and inflammation.
Compression socks help with shin splints by:
- Improving circulation
- Supporting muscles and tendons to prevent strain
- Preventing fluid accumulation and swelling
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.

How tight are Nurse Yard’s compression socks?

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!

I've tried other compression socks that were so tight they were unbearable. The ones I got from Nurse Yard give me the support I need without the sensation that a boa constrictor is eating my legs.
I work in a factory on concrete floors. I’m constantly in motion during the 12 hour shifts. At the end of the day my feet and legs would be terribly swollen and by the time I got home they hurt so bad I could barely walk. Was considering changing occupations.
Then I saw your socks on Facebook and thought I’d give’em a try, what could it hurt.
WOW! Just WOW!
After just one shift I was amazed how well they worked at reducing the swelling.
The pain was simply gone!
I can now work the entire 12 hour shift pain free. And still be pain free by the time I got home.
I’ve tried other compression socks that were way to tight or not enough compression, so was skeptical about Nurse Yard socks.
I’m so glad I tried them.
They are the best … ever.
Thank you for a wonderful product.
I bought one pair to try and then went back and bought 5 more pairs! Love the colors too😊
I've had multiple vascular surgies recently and these have helped immensely!! I'm very athletic and wear XXL (5'8, 170lbs, 16in calf, size 11 shoe) while working out ( cardio and heavy weight lifting) and at work. I'm super impressed! No pain, love them!!
Helped so much with leg and foot pain. Also the sizing is excellent because I have large calves and was able to order the appropriate size from the size chart. I have already placed my next order.
These are the best compression socks I’ve ever worn. It is not a struggle to get them on and off, and the socks really do reduce (and prevent) swelling. They are comfort and wash well by hand. They are terrific. Thank you for making such an outstanding product.
Love !!! My legs thank you❤️
I got the wrong size sent to me, so I contacted support. They were amazing at responding quickly and they fixed my issue! Also, love the socks they don’t even feel like compression socks! Absolutely will order again!!
