I do not like wearing socks and have not do so for years. But then again, I use foot powder year round…

I have one pair. Got them when in the hospital six months ago to help with swollen legs. Didn't know they cost that much!

Mind if I ask why you wear them? I've seen them but would like to know their purpose. Thanks much.

I am wearing them because my legs are swollen. My Medical Doctor believe the swelling will go away. Tinkerbell54

I wore them for a year and thankfully the doctor said I didn't need them anymore. Mine were black knee high and were $26.00. My insurance would only cover them if they were over $50.00.
