More info

VR Essential is a quick-drying Lycra based travel sock. It is comfortable enough for everyday wear and the 16-18mmHg medically valid graduated compression provides excellent relief and support.

It is an great option for everyday wearers to fill their drawers with while providing great compression for long-haul travel.

This is a big improvement in both fit and comfort compared to an off the shelf flight sock. It is discreet, lightweight and still goes through our strict medical testing process. The heel is clearly marked to ensure it fits into place and therefore the compression is accurately applied to the calf.

Fabric Composition: 95% Lycra, 5% Elastane



Thank you

I am writing to let you know how much difference your compression socks have made to me. I have varicose excema caused by leaking veins, since wearing your socks my excema has disappeared. I would like to add that by wearing them when playing golf and general day activities they have reduce the tiredness I used to feel in my legs. I would definitely recommend your product to anyone who has circulation problems.


    Fully satisfied

    I ordered these socks for the same reasons as Leslie Crew of Kent - problems with varicose veins affecting circulation. I am advised by my doctor that the NHS is disinclined to deal with this condition surgically these days. Therefore good socks that stimulate the circulation will be in demand. And the socks that you provided are helping sinificantly. What is more, they came at high speed. The sizing chart is a good idea!. I could buy this sort of thing in Boots for



      The Essential socks are a superb fit, easily as good as the best socks that VR have to offer. They offer the same level of performance and have made a significant difference to how tired my legs feel at the end of the day. They are the perfect sock for daily wearing.

      My only comment is that I have noticed my feet perspire more wearing these socks that when wearing the Ultra Comfort or the Oxfords, this is why I have marked them 4 and not 5 stars.

      I will be buying more of these but will only wear them when I visit cooler climates.


        VR Essential Socks

        Excellent product and service. Giving measurements as directed on website resulted in perfectly fitting socks. These feel much more comfortable and effective than others previously bought in shops which can only be selected by shoe size range.


          excellent product

          The socks arrived extremely quickly after giving measurements for a good fit. They feel very comfortable on and look forward to wearing them on a forthcoming long-haul flight.


            Well made and good value

            Arrived quickly, excellent fit and quality.


              Quality product.

              Always suffered with swollen ankles after flying.
