How to measure for compression socks: Sit the person down with their foot flat on the floor and their knee at a 90 degree angle. This contracts the calf so we get it at its biggest measurement. In this position, the person can measure themselves accurately or be measured by someone else. ​You want to measure the ankle circumference at the smallest point (above the ankle joint, not around the maleoli - just the skinniest part of the bottom of the leg). You then want the calf circumference at the widest part. Shin length is measured from the pit of the knee down to the floor. Height of the person in cm. Shoe size in UK sizing. You want the tape measure to hug the skin but not be digging in. If you have any difficulties or are unsure, give us a call on 0207 326 0900.

Nice patterned socks

On retirement I was tempted to buy some more interesting socks to replace the tired black ones. I have worn compression socks for 20 years and these seem very comfortable with a top that does not dig in.


    Very happy customer

    The socks have made a big difference for me I have only been using compression socks for a short time and I was looking for a quality sock and I think I have found what I want the service is first class I shall be ordering more.



      Wonnderful socks, they are comfortable and they have helped my tight calf muscles during the day. Great value for money and will definitely by more.


        Nice-looking socks

        I'm very happy with these socks when wearing them. They're tough to put on, but I'm blessed with a strong husband.


          great socks

          After suffering from a DVT back in 2015 these are by far the best compression socks I have bought, so much so that I now have 5 pairs!!!
          Would definitely recommend.


            Now compression with a bit more style

            As a long-standing user of VR socks for daywear and sport, it was time to get a new pair to replace a pair that was reaching its end of life after almost 3 years. Looking for something a bit different to wear in the office, the Oxford seemed a perfect match. These are extremely comfortable and provide great support through the day. The stripey design makes these easy to locate in the sock drawer next to all the standard black pairs!


              Oxford, Durham, Brighton and Fairway

              Having searched endlessly for something more fashionable than the 'run of the mill' compression sock, so pleased to have at last found pairs that are brighter, more comfortable and effective to wear. Excellent product, well done!


                Comfortable and easy to put on

                After struggling for many years to put on 'shop' bought flights socks, I purchased these from VitalActive. The stretch material makes it so easy to put these socks on and they were very comfortable on a 13 hour long haul flight.
                I hand washed these after use and they were as good as new. Highly recommended.


                  VR Oxford

                  Exceeded all expectations.
                  Very comfortable!


                    Excellent performance and funky styling

                    The perfect combination of price and performance.

                    These socks perform as well as any other VR sock that I have tried, be they more or less expensive.

                    They stay up all day, my legs feel less tired, they look like a normal fashionable sock, they are incredibly comfortable and they don't make my feet perspire.

                    I am incredibly happy with these socks and will be ordering an extra pair every month. Ideally I will replace all my normal socks with these.


                      VR Oxford

                      These socks are very comfortable, but not ideal for warm weather conditions as they are quite thick. Also mine seem to fall down slightly when walking for a while. I was told this was due to me having thin calfs, but it does make me wonder how well these are applying a "squeeze" when they are quite loose at the top. All in all though a very well made product that looks good and is very nice to wear.



                        Really happy to have found these. They look good and hopfully will perform as well as they look.



                          Nice patterns good fit last all day and keep me safe. What more can you ask for. If you have veiny legs,blood clots or other leg problems these are for you. I wear them with shorts when I can they look good.


                            Great Sox

                            Wearing a pair now. Very stylish, wearing with shorts, and under trousers look like ordinary socks. Don't get swollen ankles at night and my legs feel better all day. Had stockings originally after a new hip but went on to have blood clots in my leg and lungs so I wear them for preventative reasons and because of varicose veins they make for much more comfort all day.


                              more great sox

                              Been wearing the socks with shorts lots of people, especially the ladies love them. Very fashionable and chic.



                                These are comfortable, give good compression, and look like ordinary fun socks.


                                  New Support Socks

                                  Comfortable and stylish to wear all day.


                                    Does what it says on the tin

                                    Unlike a lot of support stockings, I found these very easy to put on. In old age it can be a struggle! Very comfortable, and with some style to boot looking like quite normal socks. A good pair of socks, ordered two more pair already.


                                      Happy again

                                      Again, good design. Don't slip down at all. Wear as normal socks. Think could be too hot in warmer weather.


                                        Support Socks

                                        These were bought to use as support socks - both for varicose veins and after a minor operation. No problem with use, they are easy to put on and give good support. They are warm so unlikely to be used in summer with long trousers and because of the design most unlikely with shorts! They wash well. My only complaint is that the elasticity extends right down the foot and onto the toes. This compresses the toes and because of the shape of my foot cuts in slightly above the second smallest toe making it unlikely that they could be used for extensive walking. They need a design which allows the toes to remain uncompressed. I also need to review for summer weight socks and find an alternative for using with shorts.


                                          Great product

                                          Great product and excellent service


                                            support socks

                                            This is the 2nd order I have placed for flight/compression socks. They are the most comfortable and effective I have found. Wear them as ordinary socks as I have had a previous DVT and they prevent my leg swelling . Love the choice of colours rather than black or black as in other makes. Just wish you did beige or brown.


                                              Great socks and super comfy

                                              Bought these for a long haul flight and they were super comfy and no issue to keep on before, during and after the flight. Loved the fact that they were in a range of designs and will definitely purchase again.


                                                Allan Ritchie

                                                Coming up to a year since being consigned to a wheelchair due to spinal cord injury.

                                                Since discussing leg pain and swelling problems with the Vital Active team, these socks are part of my daily routine; I simply would not be without them.

                                                I found leg / ankle / foot swelling on top of the neurological pain I endure in my legs to be simply horrible. These socks allow me to spend several hours in the car, and then spend the remainder of the day in my chair shooting clays before the return trip home; all in the knowledge that my legs, ankles and feet will not be swollen and I won’t have to endure the associated discomfort.

                                                All that, and they’re far more stylish easier to put on then TED Stockings!



                                                  These socks work so well. They are comfortable with great support and look good. I have many different VR designs and they all wash perfectly. My life is back on track.
