expensive but worth it
These target compression perfectly: they're tighter than other comp sox where you want it but not tight at all elsewhere, so your calf doesn't feel like it's been stuffed into a sausage casing. This is important because too much compression everywhere can mess up your gait and head you straight for tendonitis city. The ventilation works: you don't roast in very hot weather. And they wash fine in the sink and dry fast, so you don't need several pair to use them daily. I'm glad I shelled out for them.
