Rugby Compression Socks

Rugby puts huge demands on its players. Compression socks can help you boost your fitness levels during the game and aid recovery afterwards.

Buyers' Guide

Our medical team has worked closely with the RFU and the VR recovery sock and lightweight calf sleeve is part of kit handed to every international player.

During the game we advise a lightweight calf sleeve (VR Performa Lite or VR ProBoost Lite) or a lightweight full undersock (VR Performa) – a VR ProGuard can be worn if you use shin pads. These should be worn under the normal rugby sock – the advantage of the sleeve is it does not alter the fitting of your feet in your boots.

After the game a class II recovery sock (VR ProPlus Recovery) should be worn for a minimum of four hours – this will help reduce fatigue and muscle soreness, it can even be worn to work the next day to help keep your legs fresh.

If playing involves travel to and from matches – then we recommend using a travel sock. This is because dehydration, bruising and swelling are common and they all increase the risk of DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and wearing compression will help to alleviate these risks.

Finally our daywear range is a simple substitute for your everyday socks – yet unlike normal socks, compression is proven to help keep your legs fresh and less fatigued no matter how busy your routine.
