Today there are many different styles of support socks and compression socks available for men to prevent or treat venous disorders. Medical statistics show that by 50 years of age 50% of men will be afflicted with some type of venous disorder. Lower compression men's support socks are also available as preventative measures to reduce foot and ankle swelling and are great for air travel or when on your feet all day.
As preventative support or for varicosities below the knee, support socks are a great choice. With recent advances in knitting technology, many new styles of men's graduated compression socks are now available including dress socks, casual patterned socks, and athletic support socks with CoolMax� fibers. For varicosities above the knee, a unisex thigh-high is available with a simple uni-band top.
