Footballers can run 10k in a single match. Compression socks can help reduce fatigue, increase endurance and aid proprioception (muscle and joint awareness) for higher performance levels. Buyers' Guide The clothing in contact and ball sports such as football has advanced dramatically, however one area that has not changed is the technology used in the socks Our medical team has worked with 90% of the current premiership and the VR range of socks are now part of the England Football kit for all international matches. One area that has not changed is the technology used in the socks. There is now excellent scientific evidence that using socks with this medical technology bring great benefits, and the professionals have been doing it for years. Our experience suggests that it is essential that one of the following products should be worn during the game: a calf sleeve (with or without a shin pad pocket) or a lightweight full undersock. These should be worn under the normal football sock TM the advantage of the sleeve is it does not change the feel of the foot in your boots. After the game we suggest the use of a recovery sock (VR ProPlus Recovery) TM this has a tighter level of compression and should be worn for at least 3-5 hours for maximum benefit, to reduce fatigue and muscle soreness. If your games involved travel TM then we recommend using a travel sock to and from games. Dehydration, bruising and swelling are common all of which increase the risk of DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and wearing these socks will help to alleviate these risks. Finally our daywear range is a simple substitute for your normal socks TM and unlike your normal sock will keep your legs fresh and healthy no matter what your routine.
