The Scholl Flight Socks in black have been clinically proven to help prevent deep vein thrombosis. These socks can be worn discretely instead of regular socks during flights or other journeys that cause uncomfortable experiences and restricted movement. Cramped conditions and dehydration can cause swollen ankles, feet and tired legs. Wearing the Scholl Flight Socks can help improve blood circulation that can be disrupted by sitting for long periods of time.
Wearing the Scholl Flight Socks can help to prevent blood flow issues by applying gentle pressure to improve circulation while you are experiencing restricted movement. This discomfort in your legs and feet can be caused by cramped conditions, reduced air pressure and mild dehydration which can all accumulate to an uncomfortable trip.
The classic black material provides both a discrete and comfortable fit that allows you to wear with your usual clothes and shoes. These socks can easily be fitted into any travel bag for easy transportation.
