The 2XU 24/7 Compression Socks incorporate cotton for greater comfort all day everyday. Strategically designed with greater padded zones provide added cushioning to the heel and balls of feet. Coolmax is incorporated into the foot bed for moisture management. This is an ideal sock for those who sit for long periods of time during travel or at work, or those standing on their feet all day when decreased circulation can cause swelling and fatigue. Graduated compression improves circulation to counteract this for fresher feet and legs throughout the day.
