How Nurse Yard’s Exercise Compressions Socks Differ

When you exercise, you want all of your apparel to work properly and help provide the results you’re looking for. Exercise compression socks are one of many things people rely on to enhance their workout experience and improve their athletic performance, but not all compression socks provide the support they promise.

At Nurse Yard, we make exercise compression socks for working out that provide comprehensive support and pain relief from calf to toe as well as helping enhance performance during your workout routine. Whether your workout includes weightlifting or going for a run, our distinct compression socks are crafted to help you focus more on moving your body and less on resting your legs.

It all starts with our 20-30 mmHg compression, which provides consistent pressure throughout the legs, ankles, and feet. Our compression socks also won’t make your leg muscles feel constricted like other compression socks do. You may even forget you’re wearing compression socks entirely.

Our exercise compression socks are unlike anything you’ve ever put on your feet. Their pain-relieving design can help relax your body and mind, allowing you to get in a longer workout and enjoy less muscle soreness when you rest. Try Nurse Yard’s exercise compression socks for working out and feel the difference in your feet.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do Compression Socks Help for Working Out?

Nurse Yard’s compression socks for working out are any athlete’s solution to achy legs. By applying consistent pressure throughout the legs and feet, compression socks stimulate and increase blood flow to prevent soreness and shin splints. This support can help you get through even the most rigorous workouts with minimal discomfort, making post-workout recovery less painful as well.

What is Nurse Yard’s Design Hack?

At Nurse Yard, our design hack for better exercise compression socks comes from our commitment to comfort and support. From enhanced arch support to the ankle cushion, we’ve carefully crafted every aspect of our exercise compression socks to provide complete satisfaction.

Say goodbye to achy, swollen legs. Complete every exercise with greater energy and clarity, and confidently take on all future workouts with our exercise compression socks.

How Do I Know What Size Compression Sock to Get?

Please refer to the sizing guide below to choose the best compression sock size for you. For the most comfortable fit, measure around your calf with a tape measure and select the appropriate size.

This size chart aims to account for all body types. If you are unsatisfied with the fit of your compression socks, don't hesitate to contact Nurse Yard, and we can start the exchange process.

If you have personal preferences on how you want your compression socks to fit, consider those when selecting your size. For example, if you like more room in the foot and toe area, you may prefer larger sizes. Likewise, if you prefer a more snug fit to reduce swelling by gently squeezing your feet, you’ll likely want to choose a smaller size than you would for other socks.

How Tight Are Compression Socks?

Some compression socks or other compression garments constrict your legs to the point where they feel suffocated. At Nurse Yard, we’ve designed our exercise compression socks to fit just tight enough to relieve aching and painful swelling in your legs and feet. That way, you can enjoy your workout without feeling like your movement is restricted in any way due to poor circulation or tired legs.

Where Does Nurse Yard Ship From?

Nurse Yard is located in Phoenix, AZ, and we ship all compression sock orders from our local USPS.

How Long Does Usually Nurse Yard Shipping Take?

Shipping from Nurse Yard usually takes between 3-5 business days.

Due to strain on the USPS, orders may be delayed and encounter increased shipping times. Delays may cause your order to be delivered in 5-10 business days.

Our team is constantly working to fulfill orders and ensure you can enjoy your compression socks as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience and support during these difficult times.

Benefits of Wearing Compression Socks While Working Out

  1. Nurse Yard’s graduated compression socks for working out stimulate blood circulation throughout the legs and feet, preventing blood clots and vein insufficiencies, such as deep vein thrombosis, in the process.
  2. Our compression socks work to reduce ankle and leg swelling, in addition to general muscle pain, so you’re not slowed down by soreness while trying to exercise.
  3. Because our compression socks relieve pressure while you work out, you can enjoy less muscle fatigue on rest days.
  4. Our enhanced arch support helps you feel comfortable on your feet for longer, so you don’t have to interrupt a run or yoga session because you’re sore.
  5. The knitted top of our knee high compression socks keeps them up on your legs throughout the day, so you don’t have to worry about pulling them up repeatedly. Plus, these socks are made with a seamless toe for extra cushioning and to prevent irritation across your toes.
  6. We’ve designed our compression socks with quality in mind, using only the most breathable and durable moisture wicking fabric available. Not only will you feel comfortable when you wear compression socks, but they’ll last for many years to come.
  7. The graduated pressure of our workout compression socks provides comprehensive support throughout your leg without feeling restrictive or loose; making them great for runners, cyclists, hikers, or anyone else with active hobbies.
  8. Our compression socks help reduce muscle soreness and clear lactic acid post-workout. Many athletes face a temporary reduction in performance caused by muscle fatigue, delayed onset muscle soreness, shin splints, and other minor injuries, which can all be helped by wearing compression socks to recover.

Edema caused by septic knee

51 weeks ago, I had emergency septic knee surgery. After having completed all the rehab
, I began trying various makes of compression stocking to help reduce the swelling. In short, I tried about 5 different manufacturers products and eventually went with Nurse Yard. Although not easy to put on, they were the easiest and most comfortable. Now I wear them to the gym every time. (5-6) days / week. I highly recommend these compression stockings .

New customer

Your customer service is wonderful. Needed a larger size and you shipped them right away. I have the black and Grey core socks. The Grey pattern looks and feels like k tape. All the patterns provide the perfect support. Really like the band at the knee. Actually had room for the lymph to move up to the torso. Best of all worlds. Will absolutely get more. Thanks Paula

Such a relief to find this product.

Several years ago I had an infection that started in my right leg. It initially looked like a bug bite but then began to throb and have electric like shocks. After seeking medical attention and received some good and bad advice on remedying this issue it had gotten worse and after receiving a biopsy on my left leg that also become infected, I ended in up wound care at our local hospital. There I was told even when I recovered from the infection I would need to wear compression stockings for the rest of my life. Fast-forward after trying several companies I had some success but most compression socks I tried would be tight but didn't relieve the swelling at times or the pain, until I tried Nurses Yard. These have been a welcome find and I wear them all the time. My doctor is surprised as he said most people don't listen to him , I told him to recommend Nurses Yard because they really work.
