Compression socks are designed to improve blood circulation, which is why they're a staple for runners and fitness fanatics. By squeezing the walls of the veins in your legs, compression socks help the blood make its way up to your heart, which improves oxygen and helps speed up the recovery process. Compression socks also help improve the flow of lymph fluids, which prevents swelling and achiness. The benefits of increased blood flow and lymph fluids make for better workouts and faster recovery, but compression socks aren't only for athletes.

The toe box is generally wide, allowing the toes to fully spread into their natural positions, instead of being crammed and restricted in conventional sneakers and footwear. Most recovery footwear also provides ideal arch support and places a gentle stretch on the calf by lowering the heel relative to normal footwear—a position that mimics the natural, barefoot alignment.
