If you're trying to ensure you choose the right size & strength for your compression socks you've come to the right place. Below we are going to break down how to measure yourself for the perfect fit so you can have happy feet.

How tight should your socks feel?

They should feel quite a bit tighter than your average pair of socks, but not so tight it hurts your legs after 10 minutes. The size guide below should help get you the size you should be wearing.

What do the different mmHG strengths mean?

Daily compression socks (15-20 mmHG)

These will help relieve pain, swelling, or aching without feeling too tight. These are great daily wear and can be used for lounging, travel, sports.

Medical grade compression socks (20-30mmHG)

These are perfect for sports recovery, daily wear, medical recovery, and to address with symptoms of varicose and spider veins. Ideal for patients looking for more support.

I love your Boom socks! What is the best way to wash or clean them?

Wow 21.99 down to 21.98
Why would you assume shoe size corosponse with calf size? My calf is large but I do not have a size 13 shoe. I see everyone complaining that the toe is to long due to your sizing method. Dr. always tells you it’s not good to have folds or creases in your sock. Seems like a design flaw.

I love these compression socks, just hate the word Boon written over the toes as it shows when try to wear with dress shoes 👞

I have a pair of the socks and really like them except that I need an X-LARGE but I do not wear a size 13 shoe. I wear a 9 so the foot of the sock is way too long. I have to either bunch it up on my foot or turn it over at the toes and neither one are comfortable. Any suggestions ? I need another pair because I wear them every day

I have tried others. I have large calfs. I really need for swelling when traveling. I do not have vein or other’s problems. Would you suggest booms?
